Attended as a surprise meal for my 40th birthday arranged by my husband. Was nervous on arrival having 2 young children with us (would they behave?!!) but needn't have worried as staff great with them anyway. Food and service was wonderful. Whole party enjoyed themselves. Thank you!

We stopped here on the off chance they had a table for lunch for two. Parking was amazingly easy with a large gravel area at the back of the restaurant. The staff were really happy and friendly. Food was delicious and the 12 hour slow roast pork was some of the best pork I have ever tasted. Service was faultless,... More

The food was fantastic," out of this world" every course was hot, colourful, and so full of flavour. I had the king prawn and lemon sole it tasted like the... More

I have lived in the village for years and although I knew the cottage was there I never visited. I'm glad that I now have. The staff were very welcoming and service was excellent from start to finish. The food was fantastic and all together not too expensive. If you haven't been before I'd highly recommend this lovely, old, charming... More

Having been living overseas for too many years and only being able to visit The Thatched Cottage on rare occasions during flying visits to the UK, it has always been a once in a blue moon venue for me. None the less, the restauranteurs always seem to remember us which is a small clue as to the great care that... More

We were a large party for the festive dinner & had preordered so everything should have been excellent! Two of us had the pheasant breast that was overdone & very dry. The staff were advised of our disappointment on collecting plates & apologised but offered nothing else not even a discount! We were 1 table of only 3 occupied so... More

Sunday lunch with friends . Wonderful food and surroundings & staff. We've been here a couple of times and have never been disappointed. Today rare roast beef , baked salmon , pheasant cassoulet & a trad pre Xmas turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Starters & puddings just as good ... something to suit every taste. Excellent value too with... More
