Although a little more expensive than we might normally go to for a fairly standard night out the food was lovely and all beautifully presented. The efficient staff was super friendly and the relaxed atmosphere made for a great evening out.

Invited to the Thatch by my son for a birthday drink. We were made to feel most welcome, the bar was busy, and it had a special feeling about, nothing worse than walking into an empty bar. NB Did not eat on this occasion, but have in the passed and not been disappointed.

A great night at the Thatch I had a winter warmer pro mo code, the food was fab and a pleasant atmosphere. It was a game evening, so much to choose from a good meal with good friends at a reasonable cost, I will be visiting again.
