Great pub with 2 open fires which we needed as it was snowing and freezing. Met some lovely people and had a relaxing jar or two

Had lunch in The Thatch Inn last Saturday and was quite impressed with the food but trying to order it was strange. When you went upstairs and entered the restaurant you had to stand in a line in single file and wait until a member of staff took your order at the bar for both food and drinks. There were about twenty people waiting while all the tables were empty ?? When we finally did give in our order and found a table it was at least another 40 minutes until our food arrived, so in total we had over an hour to wait for two burgers (which were very good) !! I think that the management need to address this but I would return.

If your after some good honest pub grub then The Thatch is definitely where it's at. A warm and cosy welcome, with a well varied menu of traditional fair. I can recommend the 10oz sirloin together with a bottle of their Austrailian Shiraz. Couldn't manage a desert !! Perfect.

were seated at a table that hadn't even been wiped down, when staff were asked to clean the table they wiped one corner and walked off. orders were brought out wrong twice (drinks and main course sides) staff were very inattentive and became increasingly rude when 45 minutes after we have finished our main course we were forced to politely ask for one of them to clear the table. by the end of the meal we were treated as if we were in the staffs why and watched as they served what can only assume to be there local acquaintances first.
food was of an average quality but not worth the prices. champ was bland and not mashed, and all other food had clearly been ready long before staff brought it to the table as my partners sizzler dish wasn't even sizzling anymore.
all in all i wish I'd spent my money on a take-away because the quality would most likely have been better and I at least feel welcome in my house.
wont be back.

Wouldnt eat anywhere else, food excellent (deep fried brie starter highly recommended) huge choice of generously proportioned main courses and a very good range of sweets. Atmosphere excellent, staff very friendly, have never had a bad experience in over 20 years of reasonably regular visits. Well worth a visit. Love the Thatch xx
