Description: Measure a roof’s worth by the quality of its thatch;A friendship by the strength of its hands;A love by the size of its heart;And a family by the depth of its loyalty.Thatch can be defined as any vegetation used to roof a structure. The vegetation is gathered, bundled and secured to the framework on top of a building. Thatch functions both as a shingle and underlayment; very rarely is there anything beyond simple framework between the thatch and the inside of the structure.European thatch dates back to before the Middle Ages, when the first small, permanent villages were established. Today, thatch is generally acknowledged for its visual appeal and as a way to add a historic or whimsical touch to a home. While it does impart a storybook quality to many structures, thatch also retains practical aspects of its past.Designed with a traditional thatched roof reminiscent of old Irish homes, Thatcher McGhee’s first opened its doors in Pompton Lakes, NJ in 2006 and raised a new roof in Denville, NJ in 2011. An eclectic blend of new and old, Thatcher’s is a place for friends to catch up, families to share a meal and celebrations to be had. Whether you’re enjoying a Taste of Ireland in the comfort of our traditional thatched roof Irish cottage, or some American fare in the bar or dining room, we take pride in the privilege to be part of your lives.If this is your first visit or you’re a regular part of our shenanigans, we invite you to create new memories with us while having a comforting meal or a refreshing pint!Our newest location, located at 53 Broadway in Denville Thatcher McGhee’s is Northern New Jersey’s newest Irish Pub & Eatery. Like our sister pub in Pompton Lakes, our one-of-a-kind decor starts at the roots of its ownership and travels all the way from their hometown city of Galway. The authentic look and old country feel of the establishment will make you feel as if you've just landed on the streets of Ireland.If you've ever been to our Pompton Lakes location, you know we have it all when it comes to watching the big game.

“Good Irish Pub Food and good beer selection”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The Bar at Thatchers is always busy - friendly bartenders - and a reasonable selection of draft beers all priced usually under $6/pint. Full menu available at the bar - good sandwiches and traditional Irish items.

Reviewed January 27, 2014

With a foot of snow falling, this was the only place open.The bartenders were fabulous. The food was great as well. With all the snow and bitter cold temps, walking in to Thatcher McGhee's was just what I needed.
