My friends and I were on holiday down in Torquay for a week recently and we visited this lovely pub almost every night as there was such a friendly, social atmosphere. Great prices and a great selection of drinks to choose from all to enjoy in great surroundings. The fact that it is right next to the beach as well... More

Best restaurant in town. The chicken and ham pie is to die for. Friendly staff and a top quality service. I would give more than 5* if I could.

The beer at The Thatched Tavern is award winning for a reason ! The staff if not busy will always stop for a chat and the locals are hilarious. The beer garden is fairytale and the food decent too. Ring and book to avoid disappointment, great location, great British pub !

My Partner booked the Thatched Tavern as a little surprise for the night. We arrived on the Saturday afternoon and the staff in the bar (Zak) showed us to our room and was very friendly and professional. The room was lovely and bathroom very modern and spotlessly clean. We ate in the restaurant in the evening, I had Lobster Thermidor... More

The food was very good, but unfortunately the dining room lacked atmosphere. The thatched tavern is lovely go look at and we were looking forward to eating there. The dining room is too modern but too bland. A modern dining room is the last thing you would expect from such a lovely building.

I have now visited this restaurant/pub several times usually with my wife and also with my daugther, her partner and my grandchild and each time it just gets better and better. The quality of the food is first class, all home cooked, lots to choose from and great service as well. Cannot recommend highly enough. Bob
