Couldn't think of anywhere to eat with the family , remembered someone talking about the old thatch , so decided to give it a go ! Food was average for a pub , lovely looking pub from the outside . But the service for us was a real let down. We ordered the fresh haddock which was obviously fresh from... More

As a regular to this establishment, I am very disappointed to hear that a local scaffolding company owner can behave in such a poor manner with his new partner, after being barred from this much loved pub. He and a few others were barred 18 months ago from attempting to ride a push bike through the pub after being highly... More

Excellent service, the owner and staff really cared, helping to move a suitable chair with arms and a table to better accommodate my mum and keep her out of the slight draft from the doors. Good food, excellent service and value for money we will definitely return. Thank you.

On Jan 2nd not a lot of restaurants are open. I know since my wife's birthday is on this date and I always have a problem finding a good place to eat. Those that open are usually dead with a limited menu. What a change at The Old Thatch. Good atmosphere, very welcoming staff and an extensive menu on offer.... More
