Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We celebrated our Golden Wedding day with family and friends here. We planned it in advance with Andy and Leah and they were so helpful in ensuring all our requests were met. On the day the room looked lovely. The food was superb and the...service was amazing too. Our guests all commented on the food, some saying it was the best meal they had had out for a very long time. A huge thankyou to all the team at the Thatched Inn for making our special day so memorable. We would highly recommend them for anyone planning a celebration. Thankyou to you all once again.More

My parents had their 50th wedding anniversary lunch here today with over 30 guests. The service and the quality of the food was incredible! Lots of empty plates and lots of oohs and aahs. Overheard a few of the guests commenting along the lines of..."That was the best beef I've ever had" and we are already planning what we can celebrate next! Thank you for making a day for two special people even more special!More

Called into this pub today for a last minute dinner date with my girlfriend. Can honestly say I was very impressed with everything from the decor to the service and of course the 5* food. Highly recommend

We met with friends who live in Adstock after visiting Bletchley Park. It’s a fabulous spot. The flower beds are delightful, as was the food and the pub itself.

Been here a few times each time really good experience, this time was a bit of let down as meals were 'thrown together' no attention to detail, standard 'pub grub' and way over priced-steak very poor one over, one under and fatty and over priced....Rule of thumb to not send back, the garlic butter sauce was just a cream, no garlic - did send that back. Probably won't visit again sadly, was brilliant a few months ago. As a previously experienced 'gastro pub' experience as a bench mark, we expected a few finer details in plating and menu options.More

Gosh that was an awful experience, we booked months in advance and ended up in this noisy conservatory where we could not even hear the people at our own table and they were 6 inches away. The food was so ordinary and unpleasant, it reminded...me of the Little Chef menus of days gone by. How they have ever stayed open for so long is an enigma to me?More

We booked in advance for lunch on a Saturday and arrived a little earlier than we expected. Despite the Inn being busy we were immediately welcomed warmly and seating to our table. We couldn't have felt more welcomed. Our table was near the Inglenook fireplace...so surrounded by character. Drinks and food all fantastic and simply faultless. Staff were friendly and helpful. An extremely pleasant and relaxed lunch and we won't be long in returning. Very well done to all at The Old Thatched Inn for such a comprehensively excellent experience.More

I have eaten at this pub for many years. This is the first time I felt I needed to comment. I had the Prawn cocktail as a main (£17.00!!) & I found a peice of plastic in my mouth after 3 mouthfuls. I showed this...to the manager, who said”yes, it’s from the lid of the cocktail mix they use”. I explained it was quite a large piece & could have cut my mouth. No apologies, no concern. He took the piece of plastic from me & disappeared into the kitchen. I didn’t see him again. He didn’t come back to our table to offer an apology, or offer a refund or any kind of explanation, The pub wasn’t even particularly busy. We paid in full for our meal, with no regard to the fact that a piece of plastic had ended up on my plate! I wouldn’t expect a full refund, just an apology and perhaps a free glass of wine. My friend’s fish (haddock) was watery and the batter was soggy & flavourless. All in all, a really dissatisfying and disappointing visit. My friend and I come here every year for our Christmas meal - we will not be returning,More
