We were having a short break in the area and wanted somewhere special for an evening meal. We dropped in on a walk one day just to see what it was like and we were so impressed that we booked a table for the following night. Apart from the look of the place the things which impressed us the most were the specials (all fish) and the vegetarian menu (a whole side of the menu to itself). Most pubs make a taken offering of fish and vegetarian items, whereas The Old Thatched Inn gives them at least equal billing. We do like meat but also like to have wide choice. On the night we chose two dishes off the fish specials followed by an indulgent chocolate brownie dessert. All the food was delicious, well prepared and the service was spot on.
The prices are slightly higher than most pubs we go to, but we thought they are worth it.
Pity we don't live in the area because we would love to come again for the fish and for all the other dishes we didn't get to try.

We spotted this off the main Buckingham Aylesbury Road in the very quaint and picturesque village of Adstock. Externally the Inn is chocolate box beautiful. However we were not over impressed with the food - average but over priced.

We visited for my husbands birthday. After recommendations we gave it a try. We were not disappointed. It was Wednesday night so on arrival at 5.30pm it was quiet but got busier as the evening went on.

We were warmly welcomed and our drink order taken promptly. We sat in the lounge area and looked through the menus, the guy working kindly gave our 5 year old some crayons and paper which kept her busy.

Food order taken and we were asked if we wanted the children's main with the starters which was a good idea.

The food arrived and it was delicious. We had squid for starters and ribeyes as main. My daughter had fish and chips with peas. The children's mains are large but my daughter managed all the fish. The squid was served with a bean sprout, lettuce, carrot and spring onion salad with sweet chilli dressing and was excellent. The steaks were cooked to our liking and tasted great. We weren't given the usual steak knifes you get in pubs but you didn't need them the steak cut really easily and was great.

Desserts we opted for children's ice cream and an Irish coffee. The staff kindly brought out a happy birthday plate with macaroon and fruit which was a nice touch. They even offered to sing happy birthday.

The place is nicely decorated, well maintained and clean with ample parking at the back. The menu has good choices along with the specials.

I cannot find any faults. The service was excellent and we will definitely be returning and would highly recommend.

Thanks for a lovely evening.

Thank you for a great evening.

Visited here 10th Sept, Monday lunchtime.
IT WAS PACKED. It was great to see a pub so busy during the day. We were shown to a waiting area where we had drinks and reviewed the menu before moving to our table. We both opted for the set menu which was reasonably priced. The food when it arrived was amazing.
Our first visit but not our last.

Four generations for a significant birthday celebration. And what a celebration! Each and every one of the staff there made sure of that. We arrived and were shown to a sitting area for an aperitif and to peruse the Sunday lunchtime menu. It contained great roasts but the choice extended far beyond that so all appetites were amply catered for. The food is really fabulous with roasts, quite adventurous mains and appealing children’s fare among the options. Not the slightest quibble among all of us. Service is totally professional, attentive and friendly. All requests were dealt with immediately. The advance request for a birthday cake was met by the chef with a truly delightful creation, served with panache and with the remains packaged really nicely to take home. Great food and flavours, great staff, a great celebration and also great value for money. I live in Wales but will definitely be back.
