Evening meal on a Sunday night

We were staying with friends at a cottage in the village and had booked a table for the evening. Enjoyed a couple of pints of the local brew and a bottle of merlot. We then had a very enjoyable meal in the rooms with very friendly waiting staff. We would certainly go again

Great food, lovely decorated restaurant and outside are! Mussels starter was unforgettable and the best starter we've ever eaten. Staff were great apart from grumpy male waiter. Shame we don't live closer!

The Thatched Inn is a lovely place to eat and we are so lucky to have it only a few minutes walk from our cottage in the village. The staff are always very helpful and friendly and the garden is absolutely beautiful and just the place to sit out in, when the sun shines, to enjoy some pre-dinner drinks. I... More

We had a lovely meal here in a cosy setting, good children menu too and large portions. We would advise booking as it was very busy and we had to eat in the bar area rather than the restaurant as it was fully booked!

What a fabulous meal we had at the Thatched Inn to celebrate my mother's birthday! It was kindly arranged for us to have a table, despite a fully booked half-term week and us booking quite late due to surprise-party planning confusions. We were delighted to find that several extra vegetarian choices had been added to the specials menu, as I'd... More

We popped in here by chance (were supposed to go to pig on hill but it was very late opening so came to thatched inn instead) We were made welcome as we ordered drinks and loved the friendly atmosphere that was there. I ordered the mixed grill and the wife ordered the lamb shank. The wife really enjoyed her meal... More

The Thached inn was a traditional pub with a traditional pub menu. The food was well presented, good value and good portions. The fish pie was excellent and the cherry pie and clotted cream fabulous. The two waiters were attentive, helpful and very friendly.
