“Happy Birthday!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I surprised my husband with dinner & an overnight stay for his birthday. The room was lovely - we were given the choice of which of the two rooms we would like to stay in, how wonderful.
The service was attentive and friendly, and the food was very good. Breakfast was excellent and fuelled us for the brisk walk to the nearby beach.

“Birthday treat”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

A day out with friends, when we went to Maidencombe, and found The Thatch Tavern again. We decided to have a drink and eat lunch in the pub where the atmosphere was good, The service was exellent, and the food was brilliant. Would recommend the pub to any one who likes good food, well presented. Thank you to Mick, Fee, and the staff for great time.

“Well done”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We used to go to the Tavern very often when Simon was there, many years ago. After they left it went down and down. Then Hall and Woodhouse took over, so we tried it again, a very plastic experience. Gave it another try about a month ago, and again last night, and was extremely pleased. Good choice, well cooked, and a lovely hungarian waitress to boot.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

A lovely pub with a good menu & very friendly, helpful staff. Don't be put off by it being owned by a chain - they have their own arrangements so you get local produce cooked by excellent chefs, no bought in mush here.
A little pricey but definately worth it.
We have eaten at the TT quite a few times and always been pleased with our visit, in the summer its nice to sit in the garden after visiting the beach but equally as good inside. The staff are friendly & very helpful. On our last visit the meal I had enjoyed so much the last time wasn't on the menu but after enquiring I was told I was welcome to have it, tweaked slightly but just as good. The only downside was that I didn't have room for dessert!
Dogs are welcome inside the pub as well as out which is a must for us.
