Visited early on a Wed evening. Ample on street parking in the center of Denville, but busier week-ends might be a challenge. Some outdoor seating, and very large inside. with an authentic replica Irish cottage inside as you enter. Very clean and great Irish ambiance...More

Stopped in for dinner on a mini getaway with a buddy. We figured the food would be mediocre at best; but we were shocked at the CUISINE. The Jameson drunken chicken is out of this world as was the Shamrock Cod. The environment is great...More

Had dinner here. If you sit in the (very generously sized) bar area, you can seat yourself. The bartenders sound as though they came from Ellis Island straight off the boat from Ireland! Even though the restaurant is a generous size, they manage to make...More

Unfortunately, for a true vegan, there are not many choices. There are a few salads and possibly a daily special. Sorry.

My response would be that it depends on the ages of your children and when exactly you are planning on going. Lunch and early dinner time I would think are fine for children. I have no idea about the free refills. Call to... More

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.
