Found this little pub by chance. Decided we would have lunch, it was Sunday so was hoping for a Carvery. We were greeted by efficient staff. The restaurant was full so we were happy to eat in the pub. The Carvery was anazing. We both went for Pork and crackling (the chef was lavish with the meat portions). The selection... More

We stopped here for a meal en route between Somerset and Cornwall a while back, so on a similar trip we decided to call again. We were not disappointed - the food was excellent, especially the fish pie which remained hot throughout. The beer, Otter Amber, was very well kept and was very moreish. Full marks. Highly recommended.

Visited here with hubby and friends whilst holidaying in Devon. I had Tomato and roasted red pepper soup as did my friend and burger. If I had known how big the mains were. I would not have ordered a starter. Onion rings were huge and 4 could share one portion. Others had duck and orange pate. Prawn and crayfish cocktail.... More

We came across the Thatched Inn while staying in Bideford and were not disappointed. The food (we had Pie of the Day) was delicious and the children's food was really good portion size. We liked it so much we went twice during our 3 day stay.
