First visit as was visiting the area. Great service from the team and an interesting menu. We had the 'Posh Fish and Chips' for two which seemed popular with many other diners on the Friday night. It was good with four types of battered fish. Starters were good too. The main part of the pub is over 400 years old... More

My boyfriend and I went to The Thatch for Valentine's Day dinner. I called up early and asked them to make a cringey amendment to our menu to surprise him and they printed off a special menu just for us, with the amendment. Later they came by with the proper menu for us. I was so impressed by the effort... More

We had a lovely Valentine's meal at the Thatch last night. Amazing soup - carrot and ginger. Great mains and a delicious dessert.

Dined here on a Monday evening- mine and my boyfriends anniversary. We are not from the area so did not know what to expect apart from the previous reviews. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal- service was good, not too much either! Food was very tasty, both had the duck which was beautiful. We didn't have room for desert but really wish... More

Have been here multiple times, sometimes for food, sometimes just drinks. Service is always very good, kudos to all the staff. Food is also very nice. However, the prices they charge are way higher than one would expect. If you are set on Thame (and money no object) 5/5

Lunch is £15.00 per person, but getting extra roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings & gravy is excellent added value

First visit, and we hope more to come. Very attentive and charming waitresses. The food was brought to us quickly and boy was it good ! Starters cleared and main courses appeared with little wait. Food hot, and excellent - wife and I had no quibbles, and judging by the other diners they were all happy and enjoying the food... More

This is the third time I've eaten here and I wasn't disappointed. Great food and great service. It was a Wednesday night and we weren't rushed. The staff are very attentive. Will definitely be returning.

Had a very enjoyable evening at The Thatch in Thame on Saturday. Gastro Pub with a menu a little different to the norm. I had the Crab Tart for starters and The Merryfield Duck for Main with Rosti and spinach. Thoroughly enjoyed every bite. We were a table of 17 adults and we were all very pleased with our food...
