This is a lovely old thatched pub. They serve excellent food in a friendly happy atmosphere. The choices on the menu are quite varied and children are well looked after.

After passing the old thatch so many times while working. I eventually had the opportunity to call on one of my days off, and glad I did. As a truck driver we tend to look for quality at a reasonable price. Me and my wife started with chowder, and we were both very pleased. Our main course was beef, and... More

Had a family lunch recently and must say really enjoyed it.The service was very good on a busy day,starters and mains were really good. If I had to pick a fault and this is with most restaurants the deserts are a little bit on the expensive side.I will go back again though.

Went for a lovely walk in the woods near this pub and as we had already eaten lunch elsewhere we decided to go for deserts in The Old Thatch. The pub was very busy as it seemed all the restaurant tables were laid out for a team who had been playing a local match.The Staff attending the tables were very... More

Thankfully we are always extremely busy on a Sunday. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the desserts. They are all made by Michelle in house, nothing is frozen and nothing is bought in. I'm glad that you agree it is worth the effort. More

A beautiful meal,(plenty of choice) at a reasonable price, served by friendly and efficient staff, in a lovely, atmospheric thatched country pub.Its just under a 2 hour drive... More

Just back from an awful experience in the Old Thatch in Killeagh, despite being there on a number of occasions as the food "used to be" cheap, cheerful, and there was always nice, helpful and professional staff! Oh how this has certainly changed, as I left feeling sick in the stomach with the terrible low standard of food and the... More

The most important thing to me as a restaurant owner is repeat business. It is the life blood of my business. Without it, we simply don't have a business. We don't always get it right, but my staff and myself try our hardest to bring about this situation. But every now and then (thankfully very rarely) we get a customer... More
