Booked table but queued nearly 30 minutes before we were seated. Food before we even had drinks. Drinks order was completely wrong. Stodgy dry microwaved lasagne and a soggy pie. Really disappointing!

Good pub food. Portions could be a bit more generous with the chips. But enough on the plate. Burgers well cooked, fish and chips beer batter, really good. Nicely presented. Cost - as to be expected for the area, ultimately expensive for what it is, but it’s tourist trap location and unless travel further, that’s what you pay. Good looking place inside and clean. Table seating a little on the back foot for the party in front of us, so we were kept waiting. But it was a group of 13 who had apparently amended booking at least twice and had a kid in a full inflatable dinosaur outfit that stood about 6’ high. So perhaps that’s fair enough. And the food was really quick out of the kitchen so that was good. All round very good.

We have revisited the Thatch after regularly visiting 10-15 years ago and pleased it is still the friendly place as before .. especially under the circumstances .. choice of menu limited at the moment from what we recalled but totally understandable .. missed the lovely seafood .
Great to see you still up and running will be back .

The sea food curry was outstanding and the service was wonderful. I’d only wished I’d been brave enough to ask for the red haired, doc Martin wearing waitress who served me who was utterly stunning!

Very limited on choice , everything with chips , hardly any veg and no veg or options for kids.
Salad was very random definitely not a Caesar as stated , olives and cucumber yet no cheese or anchovies I had to ask for the dressing as there was only a sprinkling that covered a handful of leaves to add chicken would have made it £19 FOR A SALAD!!!!!

Been dining at the Thatch on holidays for many years. Food quality is consistently excellent and such a lovely pub. Menu a little more limited than previous years, but that is almost certainly covid related.

Having eaten at the Thatch over a number of years with many fabulous experiences we were disappointed with the menu choice and food quality. Sadly the whole experience was not as remembered. The Garlic bread was at best lukewarm and the lasagne only half eaten by the teenagers as “too stodgy”. The pie and burger were fine.

This was the first day of opening after closing for a staff Covid case so hopefully the issue was was a one off.

I havnt been here for about 11 years I loved it the first time we visited the food was original and fresh
This time I found the food menu predictable and stodgy
We were seated in a conservatory where there was zero atmosphere and looked cheap compared to the original part
The waiter was amazing though couldn’t fault him at all!
Overall it was ok but totally gutted it wasn’t how I remembered it and is just run of the mill pub grub now

Poor service, took over 40mins to clear our main meal plates away. We were going to have a desert but left as was not offered. Drinks arrived after food.
Food was ok but very over priced. Had to send some food back as tasted stale, replacement was better.
Have been on previous years and was lovely. Possibly adapting to new covid restrictions but would not be returning for a while

Could only get 2045 seating and due to covid had to book two tables for my daughters birthday. That is not the restaurant’s fault of course. We asked for two tables as close as possible together. We were not that close even trough we asked in the daytime.When We arrived there was clearly an opportunity to have tables close together and no effort had been made to assist this. We were then Rushed for our food orders as it was late even though they had given us the 2045 sitting. The whole thing g was rushed and not the experience we expected. Go to the blue groove instead!

Very enjoyable evening at The Thatch. We only had 2 hour slot which was the only negative as felt a bit rushed at the end. I had ribs and big portion size (for me) so there was no room left for desserts so all worked out well.
