About
Built around 1480, The Thatched Tavern was originally a farmhouse with a croft (a small farm). There was also a Blacksmiths forge at the back of the building where the kitchen hatch is now, and a wood store at the end of the bar.During the reign of Queen Anne (1701) Cheapside and the surrounding area became recognised as a fashionable place to be seen. The Royal Races on Ascot Heath (as it was then known) also began, although a bit sporadicallyThe Thatched Tavern only became a pub, or tap house as it was known then, in about 1760; it was one of the three most popular drinking establishments in the hamlet of Cheapside. In the early 1900’s it became the main drinking centre in Cheapside, known

We had an incredible evening on Friday celebrating my brother's birthday at The Thatched Tavern. The staff were so friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The outdoor space is great and we had a large area to ourselves. The food was delicious,...drinks were flowing and we all had an amazing time. Special shout out to Martina who went above and beyond to make sure we had a really special evening.More

Consistently the best Sunday lunch. Impeccable service, perfectly cooked roast beef and roast potatoes, yummy Yorkshire pudding (not like some Yorkshire puddings that have been cremated and have the texture of a cracker/wafer), vegetables cooked al dente (no watery, soggy veg that resembles baby food)...and by far the best sticky toffee pudding I’ve ever eaten and they don’t hold back on the toffee sauce either! They have a lovely garden too and are dog friendly. Highly, highly recommend!More

Had not visited for years and heard that a chef we like had joined them. We were not disappointed. Whitebait and whipped goats cheese to start, followed by liver and trout for our mains- absolutely scrumptious. My husband enjoyed the London Pride and we both...had excellent service. Very good value for money- we will be back!More

Today we had lunch at the Thatched Tavern in Ascot, not a place with a similar name in Winkfield. The food was delicious, and the staff extremely friendly and efficient, especially as one of our party has several food allergies. Looking forward to our next...visitMore

All waiting staff very nice, pity about one female staff person, abrupt and slightly ‘off-putting in attitude! Food very nice but not exceptional.

From what I can remember there is a small amount of parking available on the forecourt and road at the front, plus parking at the rear with access through the beer garden.
