Old Mother Hubbard Lived in a Shoe, and then a thatched cottage and then it became a Chinese take-a-way.....My partner and I ate here one evening and we were the only people in the main part of the restaurant.....how unusual that a thatched cottage would be a Chinese restaurant......Service was fairly good, and the food was good but nothing special.....we wondered how this place stays in business as it had so few customers.....reminds me of a Monty Python skit......a truly quirky place.....

Celebrated my Sister & Brother-in-law's Silver wedding anniversary here, we had a beautiful meal hot, fresh & absolutely delicious. The service was good & my Sister & BiL were given a small gift for their special celebration.
This restaurant is also a favourite with our family for their take aways, which we have always found to be the same quality as eating in the restaurant.

Came in here in a group after cricket at Holbeton. Rather strange to find a Chinese takeaway and restaurant in a well known thatched house. Very convenient on way home. Parking. Routine reasonably cooked food, staff polite and efficient. If we were on our way home from sailing or using the South Hams beaches we would call in again and also consider picking up a carry out to eat on the move. Unlike the previous contributor we have seen people being given food almost instantly on arrival.

Only visited here once and was fairly underwhelmed. We ordered a takeaway by phone and went to collect our food (you also can eat in) at the time specified. There was one person in front of us on arrival, but despite this it took around 15 minutes to receive our food from arrival - first the lady on the desk served him, then she took two phone orders, all the while we were standing waiting, and then she disappeared into the kitchen for a while before finally speaking to us. When we told her we had come to collect food she got it straight out of a cool box that was on the floor - so the food had been sitting there for at least the 15 minutes we were waiting. It was reasonably bland food, probably not helped by the delay, but it definitely wasn't worth the wait. The free prawn crackers weren't even particularly pleasant. Another slightly offputting feature was the baby we could see in a car seat on the floor of the kitchen; surely breaking some health and safety law!

The only plus was it was comparatively cheap, but I definitely won't be returning.
