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 only stayed overnight, Landlady (Sammy) let us stay even though they had closed down for the post Xmas period. Lovely rustic rooms in the oldest building in Bottesford.

We had a family‘steak night’ meal here with family in late December it was first class! Great welcome, ambience and of course excellent food. All steaks were cooked exactly how we wanted them. We have recommended the Thatch to everyone we know and all who...have been agree it’s top notch and our ‘go to’ venue for a guaranteed great meal out. Keep up the good work - we will be back!More

Visited the Thatch with my wife for an evening meal & overnight accommodation. Booked as a result of a recommendation by a friend & reviews given by people who have previously visited. The whole experience lived upto expectations. The welcome from Sammy (owner) was welcoming...& sincere. Food was of a very good standard, service by waitress (Megan) excellent. The accommodation was both good value & clean / more than adequate for our requirements. Would very much recommend & hope to visit againMore

We had Sunday lunch, nice roast pork and enjoyed the red cabbage and cauliflower cheese. Bread and butter pudding not so good. The fire was not lit despite it being a cold dark day and it felt a little chilly at our window table.

Sunday lunch for the two of us-very pleased to see there was an option for a smaller portion -as older diners’ have smaller appetites! Also delighted with the option to have a carafe of wine. Very good food nicely presented and good service on a...busy Sunday-thank you!More

Cannot express how wonderful this beautiful village pub is. I’ve visited several times for Sunday lunch and was always impressed. Today we went for my little boys 1st birthday. The staff was extremely accommodating for 35+ people who came to celebrate my little boy. Great...communication throughout. They went above and beyond. To accommodate for such a large party is always a risk however they excelled my expectations. The food and service was 10/10. Would highly recommend. Thank you so so much. BethanyMore

We have visited the Thatch for many years with the late owners and recently the new owner. But this was our first visit since the new chef joined I must say I was very impressed I’m not saying anything was wrong before but he has...improved the food massively and is a great addition to the Thatch. As always service and friendliness second to none. I’m looking forward to your Christmas menu xx Thank you and wishing you all the best xxMore

Having had a pleasant meal here in the past and seen recent reviews I had high hopes, sadly I was very disappointed with the overall quality of our food. Service was slow, there were not many vegetables on the plate, and no sauces offered. Desert...was small, uninspiring and appeared commercial.More

Just recently moved to a village nearby & been to the Thatch 4 times now, so I thought it was about time to give credit where credit is due. The first 3 visits were on Sundays & was recommended by our builder, & we were...not disappointed, hence another 2 Sundays with family in tow these times. The roasts are very tasty, meat cooked to perfection, huge homemade Yorkshire puddings, coliflower cheese to die for & gravey like mum used to make, delicious. So we popped in again last night as it was the steak night Thursday. Again, the meal was to die for, very large steaks with all the trimmings, absolutely fantastic. The puddings are naughty but nice, managed to try 4 different ones so far & all of them are generously sized & delicious. A bit about the staff, again we can not fault. All very polite, friendly & happy to serve girls, always in sight should you require anything else. Had a long chat with Sam, the owner at the bar, when we arrived & what a lovely welcoming, friendly lady she is. She is obviously putting her heart & soul into her new venture & we have to say we think she's getting it right. Keep doing what you're doing, Sam & the whole team. You've got a lovely restaurant that we certainly want to keep coming back to. Thank you all very much. Nearly forgot because you don't see them, but the chef's are I suppose the unsung hero's. Along with the nice ambience at the Thatch & the lovely welcoming friendly staff, the food has been spot on, on all 4 occasions we have visited, so thanks to you too. Don't forget to book to avoid disappointing & give the Thatch a try, enjoy!More

Simply fantastic! We went to the Thatch for a family birthday and it was top notch in every way. We were welcomed by the courteous staff at the door and invited to the bar taking our drinks into the sunny beer garden. Our order was...taken outside and we were invited in some 15 minutes later. The meal was really tasty and the steaks were cooked as requested. Service was excellent and we never felt rushed or over pampered - it was just right. Keep doing what you are doing, our new 'go to' special occasion location!!More
