Booked The Thatch as it had been good in previous visits (a few years ago now though). The welcome was somewhat luke-warm, the waiting staff are all very young and as a result, lack personality, resulting in a lack-lustre, dull atmosphere. Apparently, it was known when booked that it was a birthday booking, and the teenage waiting staff placed "happy... More

Read the review below yours for an accurate assesment of what we're about. And maybe even you can see what a small amount of genuine appreciation and gratitude looks like. Your review reflects the attitude of a complete and utter bore. You epitomise the self centred ego centric cynic who truly thinks people want to read about what you think.... More

We booked for my fathers 101st birthday, even during the inital reservation conversations, the staff were very accommodating and friendly. When the 13 of us arrived, we found the tables beautifully set and the real fire roaring. Personalised birthday table settings had been printed which was a lovely addition. The staff were on hand to greet us and made my... More

We popped in for an early dinner, it looked beautiful all lit up from the outside and so warm and inviting when we walked in. The staff were so polite and friendly with plenty of choices on the menu. My husband was delighted to find that the Christmas menu had arrived so he selected the turkey dinner with all the... More

The atmosphere at the Thatch is very friendly, cosy and welcoming. The food is fantastic and served hot. In fact we enjoyed our time there so much we ended up staying for dinner as well. There is an extensive menu available. The proprietors John and Claire are very engaging and informative with details about the local area. The locals themselves... More

The Thatch Inn is totally worth being in the first place. Unlike some places with high ratings but mediocre food and service , this place is actually good. Went for Sunday lunch. Was seated comfortably and our order was taken. Good service as we were served by three people at different points of time and all of them were very... More

Definitely deserves no 1 rating. Warm friendly welcome from stepping over the threshold. Food excellent, tasty and plentiful. Nothing too much trouble. Staff friendly, attentive and happy! Pub is beautiful with lots of character. Would definitely recommend. Really enjoyable meal/afternoon. Thank you.
