We came here early on New Year's Eve, before the party started I believe. The staff were excellent very friendly and chatty, the food was delicious especially the key lime pie. The decor is very smart and tasteful and the atmosphere was great. We will be visiting again when we come back in the summer.

The Thatch always served the perfect steak and ale pie, i.e. the pie cooked with meat inside a pastry case. But some idiot told the owner that they preferred the pie to have a loose lid.Like an idiot he agreed to do it, so we don't go there any more.

16 members of Bideford W.I. booked for Xmas lunch yesterday and had the conservatory to ourselves. Fabulous food, fantastic service, a warm welcome, lovely Xmas decorations and the snow machine spouting out snow on the way out. I had the roast beef and a slice of caramelised apple crumble cheesecake with clotted cream for dessert. Wine was reasonably priced and... More

Met up with family members that I'd not seen for a while. The restaurant was recommended and it was made up beautifully for Christmas and the outside seaton area was welcoming even though I'm not a smoker. The hospitality was first rate and the food was the only thing that was just ok. It was fine but not fantastic for... More
