We visit the Thatch fairly frequently as we live in the town, but mainly for drinks. However, having received a voucher for Christmas, we decided to go for supper. Evelyn is the most super host- friendly and knowledgable and our waitress was pleasant too. We sat in the old part of the pub and it was pleasantly busy. We had... More

Came here for a family lunch at the weekend and thought it was OK but nothing special. A lot of the dishes could have been so much better both in taste and appearance with just a bit more thought and imagination. A rather dry terrine, for example, would have been easily improved with a little chutney, or even just some... More

Not too much wrong with the food, though it wasn't anything special - as a matter of fact one member of our party sent one dish back. The portions might be smaller than many would wish for and the extra charged for vegetable accompaniments is prepostyerous.. This place is outrageously expensive for what it is.

I realise the Thatch has lots of great reviews but I was disappointed. Firstly the reception from front of house lady - lukewarm. Pointed to a table by the fireplace, this did work out well as it meant we had somewhere to put bottle of water, bottle of Chablis etc. It's a tight fit and it was busy. The waitress... More

We popped in for some lunch on Saturday, it was nice enough. Service was good and the food was tasty. The front bit of the pub is lovely and traditional, however we were seated in a bit at the back which was very modern and noisy, was not a nice quant pub setting.

The Thatch never fails to deliver on our expectations. The service and food are outstanding and we always find it value for money. On this occasion we were dining on Boxing Day but have been there for many family celebrations and will continue to do so in the years to come.

I booked The Thatch for lunch for 15 of us. Right from the time of booking till the end of our meal we had the most friendliest service from Serena, Evelyn and Kendall. They catered brilliantly for our various dietary needs and for one of our guests who has severe allergies they even offered a delicious dairy and gluten free... More

Have been here for both lunch, dinner and a work xmas lunch recently. The food was been tasty, well presented and filling & the service was excellent every time. Definitely not cheap but you do get what you pay for in life. Also, fab gin selection!
