We stopped off at this pub as we were staying in Bideford for a 4 night break. It was a lovely little pub. A little like the tardis, we thought it was a tiny pub, but it goes back a lot further than you think. The pub had a nice atmosphere. The meal was nice, I had the Hunters chicken... More

Visited with two under tens and a dog which meant we were seated in the bar area. Decoratively speaking i was a bit concerned we were going to be eating microwaved meals but the food was pleasantly suprising, the staff were friendly and there was a good atmosphere.

I would have given 4/5 had the waitress come back to me with a little bit more than "i'll let the chefs know"... I had to give 3/5 because I took that problem to the bar and informed the lady behind.... no apology given either. Lucky I am not a good inspector either. Oh yes sorry what am I going... More

Although drinks provided quickly, when order taken two of party had to choose alternative option of the fish pie as preferred dish sold out, No starters ordered. Having waited nearly 50 mins the main courses arrived.The fish pie was little more than mash potato and... More

Called in here for lunch. Excellent outside seating area. Inside nice bar (seating in rather poor condition in places, but comfortable), dog friendly. Good selection of beers, etc. Really delicious food, we had prawn and crayfish cocktail, pie of the day, and bangers and mash and everything was excellent. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

Whilst travelling around we popped in The Thatched Inn for a drink. We had already eaten and it was about 3 o'clock on a Sunday afternoon. We saw no sign of food being served in the bar we were in. Friendly little place, looks like a good local, but a little disaoppointing in relation to it's name.

Excellent evening, warm welcoming bar before being shown to our table and waited on by staff with a brilliant sense of humour! Such a change from some of the other places we have eaten this week. The food choice was good and when it arrived we all were impressed with the portion size. I agree, probably among the best chips... More
