For the second year we organised a dinner for over 30 people at The Old Thatch and on both occasions we had excellent food, terrific service and in the planning stage, great help and assistance from the Manager, Kyle. He and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Excellent value for money - do try them.

We had drinks then food, with friends, and our dog. The pub has a great ambience, and is dog friendly. Staff are friendly and efficient. The food is not cheap but is brilliant. Great night out.

Ate here with a friend and had nice evening. Both the starter and the main course were okay chosen from the Vegetarian menu. The service and staff were efficient and friendly. Decent pub grub but not as outstanding for the price as some other options locally.

Another excellent Sunday lunch at The Old Thatch. The carvery had a lovely selection of 3 meats and all the trimmings. The beef was cooked to perfection and the yorkshire puddings were amazing, always a big hit with my family. Staff as always very helpful and service great.

We had to book our meals in advance as the website advised, and there were only a few tables available after 2.30pm. It clearly states at the bar to wait to be seated so why would... More

What a disappointment this pub has become! Don't bother going here if you're just a couple out for a lunchtime drink and maybe thinking of having a meal, they're more interested in groups of people wanting to eat! Used to be a regular place to pop for a drink or something to eat but after today will not be going... More
