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’ve eaten here twice now and both times were very good. Friendly efficient service, good menu choice and excellent food. I had spiced Thai fish cakes, which were great and a very good burger and my wife had the special haddock dish, equally as good if not better. We’ve just moved to the area and would become a regular if not for this crazy lockdown. See you again when we are allowed.

Returning on an invitation after a very disappointing end of September meal, The Thatch came up trumps with everything last Saturday for our Halloween lunch meal. The sanitory and spacing measures, the amazing food with great variety of tentalising dishes, the indoor big restaurant room sunny atmosphere, the very attentive service really made our Celebration Meal a very happy memorable occasion.
