The Thatch has been a Croyde institution for many years, and the food is invariably pretty good, but they seem to have a staff problem this season - there are plenty of them, but they don't seem particularly engaged. We waited for the guy doing the seating to appear, then when we did sit down ( the place wasn't very... More

Great atmosphere during the rugby tournament. Great pub food in the evening went back twice during a long weekend away, but book a table as it gets very popular !

Spent a sunny spring afternoon in the pub garden. The beer and food were of a very good standard. The bar staff helpful and friendly, allowing ales to be sampled before purchase. The pub is quite large and will easily accommodate larger groups. Dogs are welcome too.

We had a great meal, portions were large and food was nicely cooked. Although the restaurant was very busy there were enough staff on duty. Our daughter in law had recommended the banoffie pie which my husband ordered and he was not disappointed. We would recommend the Thatch whether you are a couple or a family.

Visited this lovely family friendly pub whilst on a camping trip. Recommended to me by a friend who used to live nearby and it didn't disappoint. Pie was one of the best I had, shame it was delivered with chips when I ordered a jacket potato, it was quickly remedied. Wine choice is nice. Great service, disappointed when they tried... More

4 of us had the steak pie. First pie I've ever had with big proper chunks of lean beef and mushrooms right to the brim. Fantastic chips and a La dented fresh veg - a right proper meal with a pint of 'Proper Job' ale. Couldn't really have been any better! As Arne said - 'WE'LL BE BACK'

We were on holiday in the beautiful little village of croyde. We where on holiday with my father who is 87 and has trouble walking. The staff where so helpful and considerate towards my father. Burgers are a great love of mine and living near London I've had some great burgers, but I have to say this was by far... More
