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.

The Inn located in a back road in Abbotsham had... More

We had lunch here today. The welcome was warm and so was the pub. If you want comforting and good quality pub food this is a great place to visit. Thoroughly enjoyed by all four adults. Highly recommend.

We came here early on New Year's Eve, before the party started I believe. The staff were excellent very friendly and chatty, the food was delicious especially the key lime pie. The decor is very smart and tasteful and the atmosphere was great. We will be visiting again when we come back in the summer.
