Great foodie place, great buzz & vibe but not a huge amount of space to move around in.
Tasty seasonal food. Friendly staff. Will definitely be going back.

We took some old friends from Canada who were both allergic to garlic and onions. Thanks Jon they were delighted with what you managed to produce, and your patience allowing them to change their order, whist they were eating their starter!!

For Xmas Turkey dinner it was quite poor. Turkey dry, minute stuffing, little gravy etc etc. Meal was fine but not the usual level I have come to expect from the Thatch

Took my wife for a special birthday lunch last Wednesday 4th December and the whole experience was wonderful even said to the waitress I want to come back tomorrow. The salmon was lovely and the liver absolutely superb. One of the best meals I have had in the thatch which never lets us down having been a customer for special occasions since it opened .

The restaurant was far too noisy. I asked for music to be turned down but did not happen. Would have preferred the front dining room but not given an option.

Lets not get carried away, its just food! Meals were O K but expensive. The only annoying thing was someone conducting what we took to be staff reviews on the next table. Next time do it somewhere else- we don't want to eat in your office.

Excellent meal, great service and competitively priced. Good wine too. Starters of Arancini and beef croquettes followed by posh fish and chips, selection of fish/shellfish and happy to accommodate batter free option. Highly recommend this restaurant.

A great experience, managed to get into the smaller, private, dining area with only three tables. The main dining area has a very busy bar so we appreciated being tucked away. The one downside was a delay in service, which to be fair they apologised for before it became a problem.
The food was great, prices good, and will certainly return

Pleasant venue and good service. There is a lunch meal deal but this is overridden by the specials board and that was not explained. One of us found the sea trout dish too greasy but overall we enjoyed the lunch.
