The Old Thatched Cottage
Our menus are refreshingly honest, simple and uncomplicated; we serve brilliant steaks and top-notch seafood and our daily specials are second-to-none. We’ve got a great selection of wines and our bar is stocked with locally-sourced ales, continental beers and small batch spirits. There's a great cocktail list too!
The restaurant itself offers the perfect mix of old and new… original features, period charm and the only remaining thatched roof in Weston-super-Mare, combined with a laid-back atmosphere and a really-very-cool, beach-facing terrace area complete with glowing fire pits.

Fantastic food and atmosphere. Wonderful location
The perfect setting for Sunday lunch, the food and service were both exceptional. I will definitely be returning and would highly recommend.
Absolutely love it here. We came for our anniversary meal after having had our first date here. Very accommodating in creating an off-menu dish for my partner despite how busy they were! It was very busy and loud but a great atmosphere and the fillet steaks were absolutely delicious!
Polite staff, food was amazing. Orders came in good time. Good ambiance and the place was nice and warm.
Outstanding food and excellent service.
Thanks and see you again soon
Good as always really enjoyed food and always good service

Very good, service and food was excellent
Lovely food and reasonably priced for the standard on offer . Good service - lovely ambiance outside with the open flames on your table ( although not every outside table has this so please be sure to ask when booking if you require this ) . Beautiful setting overlooking the sea …
Hello JamesT, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are so glad your food was lovely and service was good. Glad you liked the fire pit tables as much as we do. We look forward to seeing you again.
I am not a lover of limited eating time. Although 2 hours sufficed. I didn't feel much ambiance as I thought the lighting was too bright. I noted the chairs were uncomfortable! Food was good!
Hi Henry, thank you for the review and we are pleased the food was good. We don't operate limited eating times in our restaurant as we don't like them either. When customers book we have a suggested time for the table so we can manage bookings, but the system also prompts to say that if you would like the table longer just let us know and we will extend it for you. This is never a problem. We have never heard that about the chairs before and can adjust lighting for you next time if you prefer
It was a busy night. Our waitress was really friendly and efficient… nothing was too much trouble and she was really friendly. The food was great .. chicken and lamb dishes were cooked to perfection as were the steaks. Starters were good sized portions … prawns and chorizo in particular were really delicious. Had a great evening. price of meal was reasonable versus quality. Would definitely go back.
Hi Samantha, Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your chicken and lamb dishes and your food was great. We are also glad you found your waitress to be friendly and efficient. See you again soon.

We had Sunday Lunch and it was, without doubt one of the nicest Sunday Lunches we’ve had when eating out. The service was excellent and really friendly, and the food was divine and plentiful
Hello SP71, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review, we are so glad your Sunday lunch was divine and plentiful and service was excellent and friendly. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
I visited here with friends in the summer. My Sunday dinner was lovely. I came back with family and told them of a nice place to have Sunday dinner. We visited yesterday and it was the same fantastic service and delicious Sunday dinner again.
You can tell so much time and effort is put into the food. You definitely get what you pay for.
I will be visiting again for sure.

For Sunday lunch even though it was very busy, waiting times and service was very efficient. The waiting staff were very attentive. All round it was a very enjoyable Sunday lunch. The food was very good. Will be rebooking soon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review.
We visited a few weeks ago and everything was fantastic.
On sundays visit,the staff were very good,and food great,but waited for nearly an hour for our roast.
Which was a little disappointing as we brought some friends.
Hello HelW, Thank you for taking the time to leave this nice review. We are glad the food and service was very good, we can only apologise for the wait for your Sunday lunch, hopefully you will give us another try and let us show you we can be quicker.
As always the Sunday lunch was excellent, beautifully cooked and very tasty. We’ve been many times before but this time we were a little disappointed withe the service. We waited an hour from arrival for lunch to arrive at the table which was a little too long especially as we had 2 very very elderly relatives with us. However that said we will be back as it’s our favourite for Sunday lunch.
Had a lovely meal fir my daughter’s 18th birthday. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Only downside was limited choice of draught lagers.
Limited choice of starters and not something I would have wanted with a Sunday lunch. Love olives , halloumi, chorizo and squid but not a a starter I want with a Sunday lunch.
Enjoyed our meal though.
Hello Katherine, Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review, We are very sorry that you did not like the choice of starters on the Sunday lunch menu we will take this on board. Glad you all enjoyed your meals and please wish your daughter a happy 18th from all of us at the thatched cottage.
A very nice calm lunch food was excellent my only down side was the fact that the Yorkshire pudding was soft and squashed by the gravy and food on top of it we found two roast potatoes very small in size and had to ask for more which wasn’t a problem at all the waiter was very welcoming and really attentive at all times the food was excellent and presented very well apart from the poor Yorkshire pudding at the bottom will be returning again as soon as we can when next down can’t wait all in all wonderful experience thank you
Wonderful anniversary meal

First time visit for all four of us. All agreed a success with a good choice on the menu. We will be returning in the future. Staff where friendly and efficient.
Hello Mike, Thank you for the lovely review, we are so glad that all 4 of your party enjoyed their meals, glad you thought our menus had a good choice of food to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back when you return in the future.
All food on the menu was available, unlike other restaurants we have been to recently, so a good start. There were two us and we had Tiger King Prawn for a starter, mains of Wild Mushroom Risotto and Sea Bass and to finish sorbet and cheesecake. All cooked and prepared beautifully, service was spot on and good value overall. Our reservation was for 5 to 5.30pm on a Friday so not the busiest of times but there were other diners there. Gets busy from 7pm. We will definitely visit again.
Hello David, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this wonderful review, we are so glad you enjoyed your meals, Tiger Prawns is one of my favourites. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
