The Thatched Tavern offers a welcome and service with a smile as well as very tasty food. We had their fish and chips with fresh crushed minted (leaf) peas and a burger. Both were very tasty indeed, well cooked and good sized portions- the burger was very filling in particular. The rustic chips were very good too and the crushed... More

A pub situated in a lovely spot with a beautiful sheltered garden. Very good service. But my wife's fish pie which seemed to contain only white fish and prawns was very bland and while my cod was well cooked the batter was hard and I now know that "rustic" chips means small and rock hard and not helped by being...

Absolutley well impressed with this place which we just stumbled upon when we went for a curious drive down the coast road. This place is stunning. A proper unique English country pub that serves excellent dishes made from the best of devonshire local produce. I have got to admit that I have never tasted fish , chips and peas like... More

Dog friendly, a hidden gem off the main road to Torquay from Teignmouth. Great garden with well stocked borders and in full spring bloom when we visited. Lots of space and levels to see views of the sea and surrounding Devon countryside. A good offering of food, for all appetites, with a specials board which changes frequently. A sister pub... More

Have been here several times now and we love it. Attended recently for lunch and ate in the garden on a lovely sunny day. Food was excellent ( a little slow but they were really busy so fair enough ) and service outstanding. I particularly like the Badger ales and these were excellent as always. Kudos to the manager and... More

We stumbled across this beautiful pub one sunny afternoon whilst on holiday, after a hard walk up from the beach with a dog and our 3 year old unimpressed daughter in tow, we had promised her a strawberry ice cream, this wonderfully welcoming pub offered us not only a very welcome alcoholic beverage but a strawberry ice cream for our...

A regular visitor, I ordered an egg mayo sandwich after a beautiful walk along the headland. Knowing the quality standard of the TT, I was hoping for fresh bloomer bread and perhaps a salad on the side. Whilst the egg was okay (slightly over seasoned), the bread was very like supermarket bread. The chips were tasty however it would have... More

We went to find a beach for a walk. We found a very special pub. The food was great. The owners were very attentive but not overwhelming. Food was hot and very tasty. Serve quickly and allowed our chihuahua in too. A beautiful little gem, so good we returned the next night. Hoping the food would be as good and... More

Nice sunny sunday afternoon there's hardly no clouds. This beautiful place is tucked away in a quiet location. The food is great and the service was spot on. We had the roast dinner and my plate was squeaky clean when I finished it! It wasnt too much and neither it was too little. The pork was lovely and tender and... More
