New Year trip to Croyde and The Thatch never disappoints. Busy yes, but food was great with friendly and helpful staff.

It's a nice pub and a nice atmosphere but being local I would say it's probably the most expensive pub for a drink in North Devon. I have eaten here and the food is OK. But the prices are just a bit over the top.

The attitude of the staff and management. In this place is just so unfriendly. They are not interested in customer service one bit. I will never return.

not sure, there are other places in the village and of course the Sandleigh tea rooms. This is located practically over looking the beach.

Free parking in carpark after 8pm but don't know if you are allowed to stay all night. Also Thatch carpark is very small to manoeuvre large vehicles
