We keep coming back... great place for a pint and love the Sunday lunch here especially the beef, came here with family recently and again were not disappointed. Food is well presented, perfectly cooked and staff always make you feel welcome. We loved the unusual coloured carrots which was a nice touch... highly recommend this place, there are many pubs...

A lovely pub with a good range of beers. Quality of the food outstanding but I did find the starters limited. Although very nice I did feel it was a little over priced for what it was. I will be back to try the lunch menu though.

Visited for a roast today because we couldn't get a table at The Sow and Pigs but wished we hadn't bothered! Had to send the pork belly back because it was all fat and no meat! My lamb was tough and sinewy too. The roast potatoes were not roast or crispy! And piled on top of all that was a... More

My friend and I shared the prawns to start - utterly delicious. For mains we each had the roast beef, one of the best roasts I've had in a long time. The beef was cooked to perfection, as were the roasties - cooked in duck fat, a giant homemade yorkie, a good selection of veg and rich homemade gravy. All... More

The Thatchers advertises "food served all day" which isn't always a good sign with images of food staying in warming ovens for hours on end. Not so the Thatchers. Everything appears to be freshly prepared. A fairly limited menu, not in terms of variety but perhaps just a dozen main courses to choose from. But again there are sufficient options... More

My husband and I were staying nearby and recommended to eat here. The pub is warm, cosy and welcoming I wasn't particularly hungry so asked for a small meal, this was prepared no problem, it was delicious. The staff were friendly and the price was very reasonable, would visit again if we were in the area.

What a brilliant find as we were passing through Hatfield Heath. Great service and lovely food. Child-friendly, separate area. The bar side was busy but not overcrowded, we were the only people in the restaurant side.
