Went to The Thatch for the first time in several years. A very warm welcome, excellent and friendly service, and really good food! I had forgotten what a great little town Thame is, and The Thatch really stood out. Thanks for a really lovely afternoon!

Had a group of 15 incl of children, food was pretty good and the service also, we all had roasts, only suggestion would have been to have had more veg on the table, we were a fairly large group so it wasnt a massive issue

The Thatch is about half way between us and friends from London so we decided to meet up for Sunday lunch. Our friends were delayed but the staff took this in their stride as we sipped a cocktail at the bar. We were seated promptly...More
