    Great food! Get in early for a roast, ideally about 1! As they finish serving them at 4!

    We ate Sunday lunch with our 5 month old baby, the staff were so accommodating, atmosphere was really lovely with fires blazing. Dog friendly. Menu was brilliant for dietary requirements including gluten and dairy free. Highly recommend.

    Nice relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Drinks took 1/2 hr to arrive. Meal was ok but the dessert was terrible. Sticky toffee pudding was dry and hard, cold and no toffee. I ordered custard with mine and it was in a jug straight from the fridge and stone cold. Main meal was tasty but certainly nothing special

    Good food, generous portion sizes and very welcoming. We loved the atmosphere, husband and I had the burrito bowl which was delicious, kids had chicken and sausages. A couple of puddings and drinks and it came to about £90. Not the cheapest but given the quality I would say good value for money. Would definitely go again.

    As ever, the Thatch, its staff and food were wonderful. However, we wish to apologise to the thatch and other diners for our awful family and children's terrible behaviour. We are trying our best but failing abysmally.

    Lovely food, and nice classic pub feel. Only thing I'd like to feeback is the portion l size. I had the classic burger and chips. The burger was a lovely size and very tasty, as were the chips and coleslaw. My only complaint is the portion of chips would be similar to a small portion from Mcdonalds, and again with the coleslaw a slightly larger portion size would have been welcomed. The prices are fairly standard except a portion of chips on their own is £6.50 or £7.50 with cheese which is overpriced. £4.50-£5.50 would have been much fairer. Overall would recommend to visit if in the area

    Need to mark out bays in the car park, could have fitted twice as many vehicles in there had the parking of idiots been controlled better. Nice pub, food was OK but very overpriced (cheesy chips @ £7.50 for example)

    Booked as close to where we were staying. Nachos good, ribs and ham, egg and chips ok. Burgers completely tasteless - ordered as thought they’d be a safe bet! Best part of the meal was the chips.

    The veggie nachos have been a constant in my life since my teen years (I'm now nearly 50!) and they never fail to please. My son had the full rack of ribs which were great but he would have preferred the chips to be on the side rather than under the ribs covered in bbq sauce. The tiny pot of coleslaw left us a little dismayed as it looked like it had been left out on the side for some time. He couldn't eat all the ribs as it was such a large portion but the waitress kindly boxed up what he couldn't manage to take home. We all left full and satisfied.

    Food generally very good, service not great. Orders got mixed up initially so some people had to wait longer, the extras I had ordered for my meal didn't come. No one came to clear our plates away after meal even though we had been sitting theee for at least 20mins, no one offered us dessert even though we were planning to get some, but the kids were bored by then so we didn't want to wait any longer so I went to the till to pay in the end as no one seemed to notice us! Also kids menu very limited, all mine got stuff off the adult menu. Food very expensive anyway so it ended up costing a fortune. Also I had ticked on the booking form that this was a birthday meal, but this wasn't acknowledged so unsure what the point of asking was.

    We paid £85 for 4 vegan burgers. The coleslaw looked and tasted old, the burgers tasteless and the buns hard. The chips were edible and hot. Poor waitress didn’t know how to respond when we she asked us how the food was and we replied not great.

    Very busy buzzing pub, 8 of us ate, all food was delivered together, with good service, some meals better than others but all good standard, and a nice selection the steak and black pudding pie was fantastic. It was a little too warm inside but had a great ambiance, would definitely return.
