Recently spent a long weekend at the Thatch staying in room 4. We really enjoyed all aspects of our stay, room, food and the high standard of customer service. Nothing is to much trouble for the friendly and helpful staff. We certainly will be returning in the future.

I spent the weekend in Croyde with some mates and have a great weekend in the bar. We had food on the Friday night and then went down to enjoy the band...they seemed to play for hours!! Mixed with the locals and had a really good night and felt really welcome. Saturday night was a bit quieter but still had...

We stayed at the local holiday park and came here for dinner both nights. We were sat in the restaurant within minutes which was fab however I strongly advise you book as this place gets super busy. The food was great with generous portions and the chef really knows how to cook steak. Each lunchtime and dinnertime they offer a...

The menu had a good variety both of food and drinks. Our food came relatively quickly based on the level of custom and were a good size portions and absolutely delicious! The main reason...

Family night out, not much choice for food in Croyde bay hence the high prices, whilst the food was great, being served by surfer dudes in board shorts and paying over £200 took the spark away, Still the ale was good, burgers fantastic and the ribs to die for

I have enjoyed many meals at this establishment over the years but the most recent was a bitter disappointment. We both went for cheese burger and chips as a quick meal prior to a walk on the nearby golden beach. I have never had a complaint about this establishment previously but our visit this weekend was very different. The burgers...

We stopped here for lunch on Easter Monday half way through our walk around Croyde. Great selection of food and huge portions, well presented and delicious. Only downside was the traffic noise from the road but that didn't prevent us from having a nice lunch in the sunshine.

This is the first time we have visited Croyde and The Thatch along with its sister pub next door Billy Buds is very professionally run. The staff are happy and attentive. We had a large room (No.16) that was ideal as we had our 2 Golden Retrievers with us. The food was excellent, I can't fault the place and I...
