Steakhouse
As a proudly independent, family-run restaurant, we bring together over 50 years of expertise and the very freshest ingredients around to create a first-rate, affordable dining experience in Weston-super-Mare.

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.

Lovely place to eat, atmosphere and lovely and quite the selection of dishes, I personally had the T Bone Steak and it was absolutely gorgeous just the way I went it cooked. Really nice place to go out to eat. Would’ve gone outside but was a bit chilly at the time, highly recommended

This was the first time at this restaurant, we had Sunday lunch, we couldn’t fault it. Will certainly go again and maybe try a different meal, which I’m sure will be just as good as their Sunday lunches.

We had attended this restaurant before. It was good but this time it had improved a lot.
The meal and the service was very good if any point was lacking it was the fact we waited quite a long time for the main course. This however did not spoil the visit.

I recommend the venue.

Great food, good menu choice and food arrived in good time. Accommodating staff.
Fire pits are a wonderful unique idea for outdoor eating in winter months for people who are covid concerned. Majority of staff wore a mask properly.
Seated separately from other diners.
Would and will return again.

We like The Old Thatched Cottage for evening meals however Sunday lunch was disappointing.
Beef passable but not a good joint, sparse on vegetables with one half a carrot and part of a parsnip, plenty of peas and some cauliflower but Yorkshire pudding slightly burnt.
Staff were helpful and service satisfactory.
Overall it was okay but not good value or the quality we expected.

Another lovely meal here - it’s definitely our ‘special’ restaurant; as well as the delicious food, we have always found the service to be friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend and thank you to the staff who, despite all the difficulties at the moment, are working so hard to maintain their high standards and provide a welcoming, safe environment.

Hi Hayley, we are pleased to read that nothing was wrong, but equally disappointed to read that you did not feel the food was excellent. Could you let us know what you ordered as it quite unusual for our guests to not really enjoy their food, so we would be very keen to investigate. Many Thanks

Booked for lunch on the Monday after Christmas and although understandably a couple of things were off the menu, we had a lovely 3-course lunch for five people. Great service and really good, reasonably priced food. Prawn starters delicious and then the Greek themes main courses especially good. We had a mix of steak, kleftiko and chicken dishes, all beautifully cooked and presented. We ate inside but outside tables also looked good and kept warm with outside heating

Top home cooked food great location fabulous building with a lot of character lovely welcome very clean and safe with elegant engraved glass screens that keep you COVID safe but don't intrude on the enjoyment of the delightful building interior. Others seemed to be enjoying the heated outside area. The staff helped us in through a special door that accommodated our large wheelchair. Level access to the toilets but no dedicated disabled toilet

Quite a limited menu and we were seated opposite the open kitchen door. There were several off putting things about what we saw.

Responded on 28 December 2021

Hi Linda we are very sorry to read this feedback. We deliberately have the kitchen open so that our customers can see what we are doing. Would you be happy for us to give you a call and discuss what put you off? We did offer the full menu on the 23rd, so 16 main courses to chose from. It is always a challenge when preparing fresh food, but if you have a favourite dish, we could always prepare it for you if we know in advance. We look forward to hearing from you.

We visited Weston Super Mare for just 24 hours and booked a table online. We walked past to check it out and thought it looked fabulous with the warming fires outside. Inside was cosy, well spread out with a gorgeous atmosphere. We loved the decorations and feel of the restaurant. The starters, mains and desserts were all excellent and value for money. Would definitely recommend.
