I have been coming here for a few years now and can say that we have never had a bad meal. The food is all locally sourced and home made. Natalya and Paul are great hosts and always make us feel welcome. They are continually changing the menus and ales to make it a different experience each time. The haggis,... More

Staying with a friend who recommended this place for a meal so we pre booked a table. On arrival our table had been given to someone else so not a good start. Friend wanted the roast beef but none left so she settled for turkey. Me and hubby both had smothered chicken. Chicken was nice and tasty but only 10... More

Three of us and a tiny dog popped in on impulse for Monday lunch. Excellent food, good beer, and friendly efficient service - what more could we ask?

A very warm welcome was given to the four of us and our two dogs. Nothing was too much trouble to overcome a very restricted diet. The beer was good and the food excellent. Brilliant service, would certainly recommend to anyone who finds themselves in the area.

We drove here specifically because it was dog friendly. We weren't disappointed. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Decor inside was inviting and the range on the menu good, with an additional specials board. We had sausage and mash, hunters chicken, thatched burger and pie. Everyone was really happy with their meal. We couldn't manage pudding as well. The... More

Had a lovely light lunch here, and was incredibly pleasantly surprised about the whole experience: the pubs is very clean and tidy, we were welcomed as soon as we entered: the bargirl knew all about the (5) real ales (which is rare) and there was a lovely selection of food. Very attentive table service, and friendly in every way. We... More

Whilst we've lived in the area for many years, we'd never visited the Thatched until recently, and now we're left wondering why! Despite being in the City, the Thatched offers a proper country pub feel, with a warm welcome, open fires, plenty of seating, a cosy atmosphere, fantastic food, and exceptional service. Nataliya and Paul clearly take great pride in... More
