Finally a Chef that knows how to get fish and chips on a plate with out insulting the British tradition. I'm a London boy who has never understood ques as far as the eye can see out side a Fish & chip shop if you have a standard like this in a small Devon Village. I want to thank the... More

The Old Thatch Inn offers the weary traveller a welcome respite, with delicious food presented beautifully, friendly service from all staff, and a beautiful garden to relax in over a cold pint or two (or three!)

If you're in the area & need food & drink, just go & visit this pub. You will not be disappointed.

We tried several off the main road but they were either shut or stopped serving just as we arrived. However here we were able to eat at 2.45pm and were given a... More

We called in for Sunday lunch today. We were very pleased with the warm friendly welcome that we received. We placed our order for a rib eye and a rump steak. They were cooked to our preferences and to perfection. The sweets very very tasty too. Great pub.

Stayed at a nearby cottage for the weekend and came here on our last evening. A warm welcome for 9 of us and we all enjoyed our food. Billy was serving us and was very helpful. Lovely place and would visit again!
