We stopped here purely by chance as the cafe we normally stop at was closed due to a burst water main. They were doing the very best they could do with the influx. The food was excellent and so was the company.

Very nice looking roadside thatched pub, inside quite plain. Disappointed with specials board, as half items were marked, SOLD OUT. My Chowder was reasonable, but my wife's salad was truly pathetic, most side salads we have had are better than this very poor withered main...More

Had a lovely meal last night, menu was varied and catered for all palates. Service was excellent and all the staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend the lovely homemade mango cheesecake for dessert, and the delightful beer garden was a tranquil haven.

A classic thatched country pub and restaurant, the Old Thatch Inn is in Cheriton Bishop, just off the A30, halfway between Exeter and Okehampton. Our basic menu is usually supplemented by a wide range of specials and utilises local produce wherever practical.
