Saturday lunch, 7 adults. All food, when it arrived, was very nice including Fish Pie, Cottage Pie and Fish Finger sandwich. The 30 minute wait for it to arrive was a little annoying. Overall good value and worth another visit.

Admittedly, we visited here when we couldn't get into somewhere else that was full. However I'm so glad I've been back to the Old Thatch after many years. Really good food, and generous portions. Service was really friendly and waiting time was reasonable considering it...More
