The Old Thatched Cottage
Our menus are refreshingly honest, simple and uncomplicated; we serve brilliant steaks and top-notch seafood and our daily specials are second-to-none. We’ve got a great selection of wines and our bar is stocked with locally-sourced ales, continental beers and small batch spirits. There's a great cocktail list too!
The restaurant itself offers the perfect mix of old and new… original features, period charm and the only remaining thatched roof in Weston-super-Mare, combined with a laid-back atmosphere and a really-very-cool, beach-facing terrace area complete with glowing fire pits.

Nice and clean up good food, table service ok but did have to ask several times for drinks that were ordered but not supplied.
Overall a lovely evening had by all 6 of us.
Definitely would go again
Great food and helpful staff. Highly recommended.
Thanks for the 5 star review. I'm pleased you enjoyed your meal and the staff were helpful. We hope to see you again soon!
Albeit extremely windy and cold, even with the fire pits, the food was amazing!! The staff were very friendly and all covid regulations were in place and followed. Definitely have a new regular customer.
Thanks for the 5 star review Neil. It's great to hear you enjoyed your meal and that the service was of our usual high standards. I'm also pleased our safety and hygiene measures allowed you to feel comfortable during your visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Really enjoyed our Anniversary celebration meal…a bit chilly around our legs, but at table height lovely and warm thanks to the fire pit at the table! The starters, main steaks (Ribeye and Fillet) and shared brownie dessert was all delicious.
Thanks for your review. I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit and the food, but I'm even happier to read that you had a nice anniversary meal with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Lovely food , good prices. They have outside under cover seats with fire pits , unfortunately we didn’t get one and it was very cold and windy. They did their best to put us under an umbrella but we didn’t stay too long. Make sure you book undercover if you are outside and it’s not summer.
Thanks for the review. We're sorry the weather wasn't kind to you during your visit - as I'm sure you can imagine, with the current outdoor dining only restrictions in place, we have been very busy and our fire pit and covered tables have been getting booked up early. As soon as we open up for inside dining (from 17 May), we'll have much more space to seat everyone. I'm glad to read you enjoyed the food and hopefully, we'll see you again.
Good food and very nice outside area. Fire pit tables are amazing (but best to book one in advance as they are very popular) Staff were friendly and helpful.
Thanks for your review and for supporting our restaurant. It's great to read that you enjoyed your meal outside on our terrace area. You're right, our fire pit tables do get booked up quickly, but we will be opening up for indoor dining soon (from 17 May), so we'll be able to welcome more people to the restaurant - we can't wait!
Given very adverse weather conditions the outside area was protected and warm. The service and food were excellent.
Thanks for the review. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit, the food and the service and that you were comfortable despite the weather conditions. We hope to welcome you back again soon - indoor dining will reopen from 17 May :)
Great food, i loved the fish and chips and tiramisu.
Steaks were very good ( Rib eye & T bone). Service was a bit intermittent and original drinks order didn't arrive but soon corrected.
Unfortunately we didn't have a fire pit so was very windy/cold. We know to reserve one next time.
We went for a Sunday roast. It wasn’t the best in town but it did the job. Drinks are a reasonable price. Waiting staff are lovely and helpful.
Lovely place, nicely furnished, excellent food, very expensive for a pint that was pretty flat.
We were kept waiting 30 minutes to have our drink/food order taken! Then had to wait a further hour for it to come out! Food was amazing though!
Got charged wrong for drinks but didn’t question it at the time as we were running late for a doctors appointment!
Had a lovely time! The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The drinks were lovely and good value for money. The fire pit tables are perfect for the evening. Would recommend it to anyone.
Outstanding service and yummy food! Highly recommend. The waiting staff are absolutely wonderful!
Thanks for the 5 star review. I'll be sure to pass your comments about the food and the service on to our whoel team - they're all working so hard at such a busy time and feedback like this makes a big difference to them. We hope to see you again soon!
Had a fantastic evening, delicious food and a warming fire pit. The staff were efficient and friendly.
Lively food and service and stayed nice and cozy with the fire pit tables!
Great food, lovely setting. Slow service and expensive wine took the edge of a little. Overall good.
Amazing atmosphere, staff and outside seating area. We were sat next to one of the fires which was perfect for when it got colder. Food was okay but dry, drinks are also very overpriced.
Thanks for the review. I'm pleased to read you enjoyed our visit but disappointed to read your comment about the food. We'd be keen to know more about your visit, including what you ordered, the date and time of your visit, so we can look into this further - we don't receive comments like this very often, so will do all we can to investigate further.
Brunch food options were good and tasty but service was rather slow.
Thank you for your review. I'm pleased to read you enjoyed your brunch but disappointed to read that you found the service to be a little slow. We cook everything to order so it does sometimes take a little longer, but I will review this with the team and make any necessary adjustments. Thanks again for your feedback Christine.
Slow service, items missing from plate (brunch menu)
We had a lovely evening here, the fire pit table was great, drinks were good, but sadly the food was definitely not worth the money. I think you're paying for the novelty of the fire pits here and as they have the monopoly on this at the moment they probably feel they can charge what they like, but I don't feel they represent what you actually get. I wouldn't say don't go here as we had a lovely time, but be prepared for pricey food that doesn't live up to the pictures on the website!! I would go again, but probably just for drinks.
Excellent food wonderful service would definitely recommend
Its a while since we last eat here and have to say it far exceeded our expectations. Great meal and lovely outdoor eating area, shame the online booking (openTable) didn't have the table choice option but we nevertheless got a great table in the sun and it was all good.
Our first time at The old Thatched Cottage it was amazing. Highly Recommend and will definitely be going back.
Very attentive smiley staff. Setting was fab. Left at 9.p.m. Still glowing from the wonderful coal heating from the centre of our dining table.
Spur of the moment decision, booked online, Lovely outdoor atmosphere with various fire pits lit all around court yard adding warmth to a sunny but chilly day, food delicious, service good.
Lovely food in fab surroundings. Great service but slightly pricey
Thanks for the review. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your experience.
Great place to eat, great staff lovely setting very well organized -fire pits great idea this time of year.
Great food, lovely setting and friendly staff. Only thing maybe more choice on menu
Great service and lovely food! Will be back very soon.
Great food, great service, great seating area that kept us warm! Have been twice in the last week and will now be a regular.
Excellent homemade food. We will be going again.
Thank you for your review and for supporting our restaurant. We're very pleased to hear you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
This was our first visit since being refurbished. Really impressed with what’s been done. The outdoor fire pits kept us warm on a cool April day. The food was absolutely superb and service really good and friendly. We pre-booked for midday and it soon got busy after that (a Tuesday lunchtime). Looking forward to the next time.
Thank you for your review. I'm thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your visit and like the changes we have made to our restaurant, including our fire pits. I will be sure to pass on your comments about the service you received to the team - it is, as you said, a busy time for them and they are all working so hard. We look forward to seeing you again too!
The place is lovely, the table with the fire in the middle give an extra special treatment!!!it cosy, service is great, everyone is polite. Definitely going back!!!
Thanks for the review Silvia. I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your visit - we've done everything we can to make our outdoor space feel extra special, as everyone deserves a treat now we're out of lockdown. Thanks for supporting our restaurant and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great quality food and service. Like the idea of heated coals.
Thanks for the 5 star review. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed everything about your experience and we hope to see you again soon!
Very pleasant evening, really enjoyed sitting outside but if it’s going to be chilly remember to book a fire pit as not all tables have them but the waitress very kindly moved us to a heated corner when one became available and this was really appreciated. Food and drinks very good
Thank you for the review Louise. It's great to hear you enjoyed your evening, and I'm pleased we managed to give you a fire pit table in the end - they are extremely popular. We hope to see you again soon!
The steaks & burger were over cooked (meant to be one rare & two medium rare). It also took well over an hour for our food to come by which time we were getting pretty cold.
However great atmosphere & the staff were lovely.
Thanks for your review. I'm pleased you were happy with the service and enjoyed the outdoor space, but it's disappointing to read that your meat was not cooked to your liking. If we'd been informed at the time, we would have happily replaced your steaks and burger. I'm also sorry that the food took longer than you'd have liked; everything is cooked to order so 'fast food' isn't something we offer, but again, our staff could have served you faster if they'd been asked. We hope to see you again!
Menu very limited. Not very appealing when delivered and the wines very expensive.
Thanks for the review. It's disappointing to hear you found our menu limited. We're currently offering a slightly reduced menu, but there's still a good selection and our most popular dishes are featured. I'm also very surprised about your comment about presentation - this is not something we hear often, if ever. I'd be interested to know the date and time of your visit, and what you ordered, so I could look into this. Our wines start at £4 per glass, so we hope there's something for everyone.
Me and my friend had such a great meal! We booked a week previous and requested a fire pit but were unsure if we’d get one because of the popularity but we were sat in such a nice spot with a fire pit! The Sunday Roast was amazing, cocktails were all incredible & the pudding too! All the waiters & waitresses were lovely & friendly, we couldn’t stop raving about it and have recommended to all our family and friends. A lovely spot for food or just drinks for sure, thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful, 5 star review. We're so pleased to hear you enjoyed your Sunday roast and the cocktails too! It's been a busy few weeks and our team is working so hard, so they will be thrilled to hear your nice words about the service. We look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon. Thank you for supporting our restaurant!
Plenty of menu choices and one of the best Sunday roasts in town! Highly recommend
Thank you for such a wonderful review and for rating us at the best in town! I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your Sunday lunch with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks for supporting our restaurant.
