“Great food, Big portions!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Went here for a birthday family lunch, the Irish Stew was the best I have had! And the Mars Cheesecake was delicious, friendly staff, cosy ambience and good value for the food and drink that we had! Will definitely return!

“Lovely atmosphere, cosy but food a bit average....”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

We had Sunday lunch in this pretty restaurant which on a cold day was very welcoming. The atmosphere was cosy the service great. I wasn't that impressed with the food as I had fish in breadcrumbs and it was dry and overcooked. The rest of my party's food was fine and may be it was a one off. The prices were reasonable but when we wanted a children's fish meal they couldn't offer it just chicken nugget type food.

“Gastronomic Delight”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Excellent menu; food well prepared and plated; service excellent and ambiance of restaurant made the experience most delightful. Excellent value for the price. We knew that the servings are very generous and were prepared to enjoy every fork full. We were not disappointed.

“Excellent food in a quaint thatched restaurant”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The Thatch was recommended to us, and it lived up to the recommendation. The meals were all very good and beautifully presented. There were four kinds of potatoes plus other vegetables with every entree. We had to sit at the bar because all the tables were full, but the bar tender was very friendly and seemed to know everyone by name. We took half of our food home to our cottage and enjoyed every bite. The ambience of a thatched cottage added to the enjoyment.
