Tuesday evening for Hot Rock night. Amazing value and quality
The restaurant was a midpoint for us to meet with friends but proved to be much better than just convenient. Service was simple and spectacular with all the staff readily available, friendly, informative, knowledgeable and never intrusive. The food was excellent (apart from bread being a bit hard) and the prices reasonable. We will definitely be back.
8 adults 3 children all accommodated well. Only criticism would be we were sat in the dark as no window or lamp nearby. Had to use phone touch to read the menu.
Fab food and excellent service as always, great place to go.
Very please that the Old Thatch has reopened and in style too! The new occupants have hit the ground running. Good and varied menu, which caters for restricted diets. My aunt was offered an alternative to the potatoes on her dish and I was made to feel that being GF is not at a problem there. I found 4 GF desserts which is quite something after going in other establishments with lengthy dessert menus to be told I can have ice cream. Oh really!?! Not here. I was spoilt for choice and have to go back at least 3 times to sample them all. There are also good options for vegans, including coconut milk ice-cream. I'm going back to try that. The service was excellent and speedy considering how busy they became by the time we'd ordered. I found our waiting staff to be attentive without being obtrusive and friendly too. The small nitpicking points: —menu was printed on plain paper and getting slightly scruffy— I do think that is a work in progress and I'm confident they will make better ones later. —it's an old building and some of the windows are draughty. My parents, who are elderly, needed to move around the table when the food arrived. Just be aware of where you sit if you suffer in a draught. —We were sat at a table for 6, when there were only 6 of us which made it a little difficult to chat when it got louder. All in all I'd highly recommend going to the Old Thatch. Do book ahead in case it gets busy. It is rightly becoming a popular venue again.
Really pleasantly surprised by the standard of food and customer service at the Thatch. Didn't really have any expectations other than hoping for some decent pub food but the experience exceeded this. The staff, whose names I'm sorry I didn't note - but it was a man maybe in his 30s and a younger waitress were really attentive and friendly people. The food was the best pub food we've had in a long time, including the vegan Wellington and crumble. Thank you for such a warm experience, will definitely be coming back. (On the subject of being warm, I would just say that the dining area where we were sat was quite cold and other guests appeared pretty layered up too so maybe notch the heating up a bit for a perfect experience) :)
We went with friends to celebrate my wife’s birthday and we had a very enjoyable time. I sent an email the day prior to our visit requesting a birthday cake. I enquired on arrival, as I had not had a reply, and it was discovered that the email had Ben received but with ‘no text’. That was not a problem, the manager went out to a local bakery and purchased a birthday cake for me and saved the day. You do not get that everywhere, if at all. This was our first visit but will certainly not be our last. Thank you a million.
We had a lovely evening meal at The Old Thatch the food was great and the service was very good, definitely will return to The Old Thatch soon
Disappointing visit. Noisy as it was quiz night - our mistake as we didn't realise the amount of background noise this would generate. Item from the specials menu that 2 of our group wanted to order was not available. Dish containing chorizo sausage was overcooked and dry. Chorizo was burnt ( I think the fashionable term is caramelized !) and whole dish would have benefited from a sauce / gravy. Seafood grill contained a piece of salmon, 2 prawns and a leathery piece of haddock . Chips were soggy and fairly tasteless ! However the battered fish was tasty as was Hunters Chicken. Puddings were expensive at £6.25 for very small portions. Sticky toffee pudding was more like cake, very dry and appeared to be lacking any toffee sauce. Only sugar free drink available was diet coke. Don't think we shall be returning in a hurry even though the price of the sticky toffee pudding was deducted from the bill.
Food was really good and very well presented. Our waitress Yasmin (?) was sweet and helpful, a credit to the place. Would recommend for a relaxed evening. Slight downside it was a cold evening, would have been nice if it had been warmer in The Old Thatch.
