Steakhouse
Built as a holiday home in the 18th Century, the cottage was originally right on the beach, until the introduction of the seawall in 1885. Now just a few steps away from the sand, The Old Thatched Cottage sits proudly overlooking the water as the oldest building in town.
From a quaint holiday cottage to busy tea rooms, before finally becoming one of Weston-super-Mare’s most popular restaurants, The Old Thatched Cottage has been owned and operated by the Michael family since it was purchased by Axentis Michael back in 1959.
This iconic Grade II listed landmark on the town’s seafront offers a perfect mix of old and new… original 18th Century features, period charm and the only remaining thatched roof in Weston-super-Mare.

As a proudly independent, family-run restaurant, handed down through the generations, Maria and her team bring together over 50 years of expertise to create a first-rate, affordable dining experience in Weston-super-Mare.
