The restaurant is comfortable and inviting and has the perfect atmosphere for a memorable evening with subtle lighting and warm colours.

The food was exceptional! The presentation, quality and flavours were second to none.

From the appetisers through the starters, main course, sweet and even the hand made petit fours it was all delicious.

And a final word about the excellent and attentive service, first class!

When I booked I was advised that as the Saturday before this the Restaurant was putting on a special Valentines Menu, so was happy to go along with this. The food was good quality and well presented with attentive service and a warm welcome. No negatives at all. Good wine list and fair value. Also, last but not least the venue itself had a homely atmosphere and was very comfortable with plenty of character as the name implied. A very pleasant evening so am happy to recommend to others.

This is my favourite restaurant in the area. It never fails to please. The last reviewers comment that all the good reviews for this charming little restaurant must come from people with limited dining experience says more about the reviewer than it does about the Thatched Cottage! I have eaten well all over the world from New York to Mumbai , Bournemouth to Bulgaria and this restaurant is one of the best.

Extremely limited menu which got us off to a bad start. Selected starter, pork belly and pistachio confit Which was tasteless and tough, extremely poor presentation. Main course unfortunately chose duck which again ŵas tasteless and dry. The service, whilst attentive was overly patronising and I object to every courtesy being paraphrased with the comment "my friend". Can only imagine they had extremely bad day but more than likely previous good reviews written by people with limited dining experience. Extremely disappointed and never to return.
