we went on a Friday evening whilst visiting the area for the weekend. Service and food was excellent. Nice homemade bread to start, complementary taster consume, followed by 2 really nice courses, followed by complementary Petit Fours to end a nice evening. They asked when we booked whether we were celebrating anything - it was our wedding anniversary, so on the Petit Fours dish was written in chocolate "Happy Anniversary" - a lovely touch. Would go back again if we were in the area - really don't understand why it wasn't full on a Friday evening.

The Thatched Cottage is a very pleasant place to go for a typical Sunday roast but it doesn't have any 'Wow ' factor at all. It is certainly not the sort of place to take kids too as on the 3 occasions we have visited it was full of the 'older generation ' taking traditional Sunday lunch, which suited us on each occasion as we had elderly relatives with us and to be fair, they loved it ! The service was very good (with impeccable manners!) but the food is as I say very traditional and for me uninspiring. There are other dishes available but nothing that makes you say " Oh that sounds lovely". The wine list is not too bad and overall the prices are pretty fair for what is on offer but to be honest we probably wouldn't go there if our elderly relatives didn't like it there so much. Nothing wrong with the place generally, if that's what you're looking for but for me there are better places around locally. I would never say "don't go there", it's just not for us.

We went to the thatched cottage for my husbands birthday. We were welcomed to our table and given time to look at the menu. We all had starters which were a generous portion size and tasted lovely. Two of our party had steak for main course perfectly cooked, my daughter had lamb also perfectly cooked and I had fish which was delicious. I was the only one who had a dessert which tasted sublime. I would recommend this restaurant. It had a warm welcome and lovely food
