Whilst travelling around we popped in The Thatched Inn for a drink. We had already eaten and it was about 3 o'clock on a Sunday afternoon. We saw no sign of food being served in the bar we were in. Friendly little place, looks like a good local, but a little disaoppointing in relation to it's name.

Excellent evening, warm welcoming bar before being shown to our table and waited on by staff with a brilliant sense of humour! Such a change from some of the other places we have eaten this week. The food choice was good and when it arrived we all were impressed with the portion size. I agree, probably among the best chips... More

Having tried to get in for Sunday lunch, we returned later in the week on an evening and easily secured a table. As the restaurant wasn't busy we choose to eat in the bar. My wife' sausage and mash came with a selection of three different flavour sausages and some delicious onion gravy. I had the beef and chorizo burger... More

Very good Sunday lunch with the kids. It was our first visit but we would definitely call in again. Plenty of food and sensible prices.

Lovely pub in nice surrounding. Garden lovely, modern and very well maintained. Not really a pub for kids in terms of the garden. Have not eaten here yet, food looked good but a little pricey for a pub but if the quality is there you don't mind do you. Great range of ales on tap. Lack of parking a big... More

Mid week meal, quick and efficient service, good food and plenty of it. Quite busy so would always recommend booking.

Fantastic food...can't beat the pulled pork burger and service with some fun banter too. Always our favourite eatery...never let's us down.

Second visit to the Thatch at Abbotsham and have been blown away by the quality of food and service offered both times. Staff are attentive without being overbearing and food has been reasonably priced as well.

We were looking for lunch on Sunday and had no idea where to go. Instow? Bideford? Saunton? In the end we happened to see a sign at the end of the road off the A361 close to the Atlantic Village retail park and took a chance. And what a find! The Inn located in a back road in Abbotsham had... More
