    We have always booked a meal at the Thatch when visiting Croyde, however on this occasion I had chosen the Ribs and was disappointed that they were over cooked and a bit chewy even though they had been smothered in BBQ sauce. The chips and coleslaw had been placed under the ribs and hence also became smothered in the sauce.

    Waiter took our order wrong we ordered two thai prawn curries off special menu. Waiter didn't even know the specials then only one meal came out. They said the other meal would take a while to come out. The manager took meal back and sent two fresh meals out. Food was lovely and manager gave us complimentary glass if wine for inconvenience.

    Even though we had booked a table the service was very slow last night. It is not usually. My lamb chops were superb. My friend's sea bream was dry and overcooked. This is unusual for the Thatch.

    The menu seemed quite limited The burgers were quite expensive but were passable. My ribs were dried out & smothered in sauce to try & hide it & for £23 they were very poor The waitress was very pleasant about it & we received a free drink to compensate but would rather have had a decent meal Would not return

    Pleasant pub, with a nice atmosphere. There were 9 of us in our party, a couple of whom were vegetarian, and felt that there could be a better choice on the menu to accommodate them. Service was quite prompt bearing in mind the number of us.

    Rather disappointed with the food I'm afraid. Not big on taste or flavour. It wasn't mentioned on the menu that the fish pie contained mussels. Good job I asked as I am very allergic to mussels! Staff cheerful and helpful; comfortable atmosphere.

    A little disappointing sadly. The service and the staff were very attentive, so it isn’t a criticism of the team. The food was a little bit of a let down sadly, the chilli with the nachos was really watery, so most of the tortilla chips were soggy.

    Quite over priced but will always be busy so they can charge what they want. Very limited menu esp for children and could tell it’s another establishment struggling with staffing issues as they weren’t very attentive. Would I go again?- yes, but only due to lack of choice in Croyde. Family of four.

    Very rude lady serving. Missed off someone’s starter. When asked if it was on its way. They said shall we just give you a refund, they didn’t want to remake it. The lady serving and taking us to the table sighed when we asked where it was. Would only recommend because food was amazing. Service of staff was terrible. Lady with long blonde hair very rude.

    Excellent food. My husband was a little disappointed that they no longer did the Sri Lankan chicken curry. But he had the pie instead which was delicious. I had the signature chilli nachos which were amazing as ever
