We found his pub on google maps when we were looking for somewhere to have lunch. It's a nice pub, but in the middle of a little village. Nice garden!, inside is very old fashioned. Lunch and staff was nice.

We joined a group for Sunday Carvery and had an excellent meal. The selection of vegetables was great with leeks in a mustard sauce being the standout. It was good to see such a wide range of fresh vegetables. Staff and service were both very good with none of the pressure to kick you out to clear the table. Well... More

Had a carvery lunch at the Thatch on Sunday. Not the first time we have been there but as usual the food (we all had the carvery) was excellent and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

Very nice village pub and restaurant. Was a bit disappointed with the food. It's quite expensive for what you get. They don't have BBQ sauce with their hunters chicken, so this made the meal somewhat dry. Disappointing.

I really wanted to love this place as the venue is quaint and lovely, but all round the experience was quite ordinary. We booked a table and the restaurant was by no means full...however waited an hour for our meal (judging by the complaints from tables around us were weren't alone) and when the food arrived I have to say...

I visited the Thatched Inn on a Thursday evening with my daughter, husband and father. There was a function going on in the bar area, so it was very noisy upon arrival, but we were ushered into the dining area behind which was quieter. The food was average, it was edible, but nothing overly special. The service was average as... More

Horrendous visit - service a shambles, no co-ordination at all. We waited 40 minutes for our drink order to be taken, I had to go and find someone !! Then the food - terrible standard £22 for a rib eye that was close to eating a rubber boot - I could go on and on - I felt robbed and... More

We visited on holiday having seen lots of adverts. It presents itself as quite gastro with the signage and advertising but it's a beautiful building with a lovely garden area. The pub interior is quite traditional. We sat outside which is lovely and bright with the soft artificial lawn and attractive planting. All the food was delicious including kids meals.

We had an evening meal in a one of the small rooms with a great atmosphere. I had baked camembert for starter but the main course was a "bit over the top" and I couldn't eat it all.
