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.

Never tried this place before, however tried it this evening and was not disappointed. We were a group of four, the place was fairly busy, good selection on the menu, very attentive staff. We had a young waiter looking after us. He was brilliant and extremely polite. We had some starters which were lovely. The mains took a little bit... More

Delicious three course lunch with friends. What a great menu- small but perfectly formed and something for everyone. Ham, egg and chips, butternut risotto, confit duck with dauphinoise potatoes, burger. Gorgeous desserts.Very relaxed and unhurried. Highly recommended. But please don't put crystallised rose petals on my halibut, squid ink risotto and crispy squid. Just plain wrong. Otherwise lovely!

Recently visited the Thatchers for a Christmas Eve lunch with the family ... A few points led me to review the pub on trip advisor. From the start you could feel the stress in the air as the new kitchen staff struggled to get the food out of the kitchen correctly. The waitresses were always on the defensive explaining the...

After my visit half a year ago, I didn't expect to return to such a transformed pub, the menu has been revised superbly and I must say all the food looks sublime. I had the prawns and lamb, and my partner had the soup (WHICH WAS TWO IN ONE :O) where do they get these ideas?! wow. And for main... More

We visited here last week, we had three courses and noticed the menu has changed somewhat. I see they have gathered a few not so great reviews, which seem to miss the point of the menu, which appears to be a very large emphasis on quality of the produce. Everything is made on the premises, even down to things like... More

We had not visited for a couple of months and previously Always enjoyed our food, so made a return visit. I had fish and chips , which was the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen, it was a child's portion! Appently, this is 'the way it is' . The fish and chips used to be a proper portion... More
