Description: Built around 1480, The Thatched Tavern was originally a farmhouse with a croft (a small farm). There was also a Blacksmiths forge at the back of the building where the kitchen hatch is now, and a wood store at the end of the bar.During the reign of Queen Anne (1701) Cheapside and the surrounding area became recognised as a fashionable place to be seen. The Royal Races on Ascot Heath (as it was then known) also began, although a bit sporadicallyThe Thatched Tavern only became a pub, or tap house as it was known then, in about 1760; it was one of the three most popular drinking establishments in the hamlet of Cheapside. In the early 1900’s it became the main drinking centre in Cheapside, known as ‘The Old Thatch’ The Landlord at this time used to sell local medicine used to cure most ills, consisting of 2 penn’orth of rum and 4 penn’orth of a secret mixture known as warmit! The Tavern has been owned and is loved by many. Some of our locals have been coming here for over 50 years!

We ate at the Thatched Tavern for the first time Saturday evening and were blown away with the quality of the food, service and ambiance of this restaurant! Our mains were delicious and my lamb dish was amazing, my husband was very impressed with his chicken dish and enjoyed it very much. The staff were all very happy and smiling the whole time we were there and gave us great service. The premises itself is very charming and quaint. We will diffidently back very soon and recommend to others to try this place as you won't be disappointed!

“All perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Hdd dinner in this restuarant this week. It is always a pleasure. Have visited it over many years and it is consistently good. The atmosphere in this pub/resaurant is extremely good. It is a real English pub that has a very high quality restaurant attached. Authentic building, typically English and hugely atmospheric. A great place to have a beer or have a very high standard meal.

“Perfect pub!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

The Thatched Tavern... What a great pub!
Beautiful dining area with linen, good quality food, cooked well and so reasonably priced.
A real true gem and a wonderful find. You need to book as it was full on a weeknight when we visited! We have booked to go again already... I can't wait. Highly recommend to everyone.

“Wonderful characterful pub, with great atmosphere, but mediocre food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Wonderful character-filled pub with a great atmosphere, though the food left a lot to be desired and was not great value for money. Though the menu looked interesting we ordered duck, which we came tough and tasteless, the pigeon serve was measly and the dessert of berry parfait was lazily done and boring. Would recommend the pub for drinks. Service was friendly.

“Traditional Pub with great food and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Loved the low ceilings and wonderful atmosphere. Grilled sardines and a unique Liver dish warmed the soul. Service was excellent. The locals bring their well behaved dogs and the whole experience was convivial and warm.
