We needed a stopover and Thame looked like a lovely place to visit. The Thatch embodies the spirit of Thame . The beautiful building with old and new and outside areas to dine. We were interested in a quick bite and our lunch here was very good as the menu provides bagel and soup options. It was delicious!
Thank you to the lovely staff at the Thatch, for an unforgettable experience.

Very nice meal. The lamb cannon was delicious. We had booked an inside table but we’re given the choice to be able to sit outside which was lovely and they brought us blankets in case it got cold which we did not need.

Overall a very nice experience with very friendly but not overly attentive staff.

Highly recommended

We were greeted on arrival and got signed in all very easy, I’d asked for a certain table and was offered the choice of two again all very good.
Service was good our friends had the fish wish they asked to be filleted that was done superbly with no fuss, and there comments were it was the best fish they had tasted.
I had the beef again delicious.
They only down side I can say and again it’s personal choice there pudding menu is a bit something and nothing perhaps some of the old favourites like rhubarb crumble apple pie some of the old stuff, just saying !!
But we had a lovely evening staff very pleasant very helpful and we were glad to be out and enjoying ourselves.

We arrived at The Thatch and were taken to our table outside on the terrace by our hostess for the evening, she was really engaging and attentive she was absolutely faultless throughout our visit.

We were in the cotswolds following our wedding having to be moved due to covid and spoke to the hostess about this where she was empathetic and we both felt she had made it her mission to ensure we had a great night.

From sitting down to paying the bill the food was absolutely faultless, we dine out a lot and I must say that this is one of the premium dining experiences I have had in awhile and it was refreshing to see how friendly and attentive the staff team at The Thatch seemed to be.

Each plate we were served was fantastic and the flavour profiles however individual combined in to a culinary delight on the palette.

It was so good that we booked again for the following night!

We look forward to returning again and Thankyou again to the team at The Thatch!!
