The sort of pub you want to find on a cold wet November day. Roaring log fires, dogs allowed, friendly welcome, good selection of ales and the best Cheesy Chips we have ever had. Can't wait to return to sample the extensive menu if just a simple bowl of chips was anything to go by.

Great menu, and a great selection of beers and ciders, including our group's favourite, The Rattler! The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the food was very tasty causing each person to have significant food envy, despite every dish being well prepared and thought about.

We found this lovely old pub by accident on a recent trip to North Devon and will certainly be going back. Excellent fish and chips, friendly welcome and cosy, warm surroundings. We are considering a stay there!

Visited Croyde for a week in November. Stayed close to The Thatch. Had dinner here twice. Friendly welcome and our two dogs were allowed in the bar area. Great menu and specials. Opted for the beef biryani and Sri Lanka fish curry. There must be one heck of a chef in the kitchen as these two meals were top class.... More

Ate in this pub a couple of times during a recent visit to the area. There is a very good menu with lots of choice, including a good specials board and the food we chose was of excellent quality. I want to go back and work my way through the menu. At this time of year at least, there is... More

In the seaside North Devon village of Croyde, this pub restaurant offered us a cheery welcome and a place to dry off by the fireplace after being caught in a soaking rain. The drinks were good, the food not bad. The pub is popular with the locals.

For the first time we went into the Thatch for breakfast - four children and four adults. And the children kept changing their minds about what they wanted, so we were not an easy customer? The food was good, the staff pleasant and tolerant and they didn't mind changes and additions to the order over a period of about an... More
