We didn’t think we would need to book a table in February, but glad we did. This seems to be a favourite for all travellers, lodgers and locals alike and busy. As you would expect from it’s name “The Thatch”, it’s an Old English pub with all the low ceilings & trimmings, with NO loud music or SKY Sports. BLISS.!... More

The thatch has a great traditional pub feel and is great place to go to enjoy a few pints. The food is pretty good but a little expensive.

We turned up with a double buggy (inc two sleeping toddlers) on a busy Sunday lunch without having booked, the staff were awesome! They went over the restaurant to see if they could find us somewhere and they did, the food was outstanding! The service was quick and efficient. Cannot express how amazing this place is, the people make it,... More
