We are regular visitors ro Hatfield Heath from Manchester. We always visit the Thatchers as we find it a friendly pub. We have had a few meals and have always enjoyed them, but I have to say the SMOKED HADDOCK, mash, wilted spinach Poached egg and Grain Mustard sauce was amazing . Thank You . We will be back

The staff were friendly and welcoming as soon as we entered this beautiful pub, it had been recommended by the owner of the B and B where we were staying and we were not disappointed. We arrived at the Thatchers at around 6pm on a Friday expecting to have a long wait for a table as we had not booked,... More

Visited for a family lunch. Parent with limited mobility so reasonably easy to access as no steps. Chose the pea and onion soup which was stunning in it's presentation. Also tasted gorgeous. Smoked haddock also lovely, as were my partner' mussels. Friendly staff and good service. Visited a few times before and have never been disappointed. Recommended!

Really enjoy a dining experience in a classical cottage, feeling the countryside culture as witness of family, friendship gathering in a village. Warm feeling aming the people lived with simple life.

We popped in on the off chance on a very busy day and we were kindly accommodated. Unfortunately (and understandably) some of the menu items were not available as they had sold out, so we decided not to eat. My poor review score is not due to any of the above but the extortionate price for the tea. We had... More

Staff were friendly and good car park. Food was not great at all. Burger small with hard edge, mushy peas not tasty, fish a bit greasy. Chips were average.

My wife and I had a pub lunch at The Thatchers and enjoyed it immensely. The pub is full of old wooden beams and a fireplace, very cozy. The staff are friendly and efficient, the beer selection is adequate. It is easily found on the main street of Hatfield Heath and from there you can go for a nice walk... More

Having been a couple of times before over the last year, we thought we'd try Sunday lunch. Very dissapointed, service wasn't great, may have been to a large group of travellers popping in for a couple of pints (well behaved and polite). The time between starter and main was long and when the meals did arrive we had no cutlery,... More

Quiet cozy atmosphere with a warm friendly greeting on arrival. The menu has changed slightly as has the furniture which is a healthy sign in the current climate. We ordered Fish and Chips and Burger with Triple cooked chips, the food was well presented and very enjoyable. As a quiet chat was needed the pub was very suitable as was... More
