“Great Hospitality”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Since writing my last review I have visited the thatch many time both on my own with my husband and with family members, and every one has enjoyed both the food and the hospitality shown, nothing is ever to much trouble for the staff we are so pleased with it that we are even going there for christmas lunch. I cannot rave enough about this public house and resteraunt and it is 1 of the last traditional pubs around with traditional family values. I would recomend it to anyone looking for a decent place to eat the meals are value for money and the snickers cake is to die for. Whilst dining with family members I have listened to them talking and the only thing i have ever heard them mention is that the foods to hot (lol) where do you go nowadays where that is the only minor problem. The staff are very helpful and can't do enough for you and I will continue to go there I have taken my grandchildren and they are also made to feel welcome which I personally think is a rare thing in todays world many pubs only tolerate them because of the money but that is not the case here. My husband is also in a wheelchair and again is made to feel equal and welcome, other places we have visited have looked on his wheelchair has being something from another planet. So if you are ever near the thatch and feel a little peckish call in and see them I can garuntee your 1st visit won't be your last just like us.

“A reasonable place to eat”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have used this pub on a number of occasions with members of my family. The service on each occasion has been very good and very friendly. The menu is fairly extensive and there are daily specials available as well. Prices are reasonable and meal deals are also on offer. We did not have to wait too long for the food to be brought and when it was it can only be described as average. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it but neither did it have any WOW factor. That said there is no reason why, if you are in the area looking for typical pub grub, you should not use this pub.
The biggest drawback is that this pub has no car park, ther is one parking bay outside the main entrance, if this is full then you have to seek on street parking which can be up to 200 yards away.
