The Old Thatch Tavern
The Old Thatch Tavern is the epitome of a traditional British pub. This small family-run business prides itself on providing an establishment that both locals and visitors will enjoy. Built in 1470, this Grade II listed tavern produces traditional pub fare, much of which is sourced from a local butcher.
The owners and chefs have strived to construct a menu that boasts traditional British food. Breaded fish bites – scampi, plaice, calamari and cod served with salad garnish and sweet chilli or tartare sauce – is a delicious starter and can be shared between two. The main menu has everything you expect and want to see on a good pub’s menu. Fish and chips, cottage pie and the chef’s homemade pie of the day are all popular choices with locals. The chef’s savoury tarts mean that there are plenty of vegetarian options as well. Locals rave about the classic carvery on offer every Sunday. Meat is sourced from just a few miles away so you know that you’re getting top-quality British produce; the nut roast served with mushroom gravy is just one of the vegetarian options.
Complete with a lovely courtyard garden, ideal for al fresco dining in warm weather, the cosy Old Thatch Tavern is popular all year round, especially with dog owners – there’s even treats for well-behaved fourlegged friends. A regular in The Good Beer Guide, The Old Thatch Tavern is known for its well-kept ale, lager and wine.
