    Great pub for all ages! You can not get better staff In Devon. We have been back over several years and the staff do not change and remember you. What a lovely experience. Day or night you can expect the same service l. Accommodation is top class. And you will never beat the area for walking, surfing or just chilling. don’t miss out what ever the time of year you visit.

    Both the beef and pork belly Sunday roasts were delicious, although the carrots and broccoli were a little more than al dente. I couldn't upload the wine list from the QR code, but the chosen Merlot was very nice. The service was very good, the staff were friendly and attentive, but not ott. Very impressed with the Covid safety measures in place within the restaurant.

    The Thatch requires more ventilation. The environment felt stuffy and considering the current circumstances I believe that the air flow in the premises requires attention.

    Nice food. Service was good enough. Would of liked to order a drink at the bar before seating. Bit pricey. £90 for 5 drinks, 4 main meals and 2 desserts. A hot chocolate was £5. Mad price. Desserts were very very good.

    We love going to the thatch it always has a good atmosphere. The staff are very friendly. I would say you need to improve the kids food as food and a pudding £9- £11. That's to much for a 5 year old. A pint of reall ale, just under £5. I will go back but as its a good pub.
