“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Took my husband here for lunch today having been recently with work colleagues.

We both ordered burgers, they were delicious! Food was quick well cooked and hot.

Hubby who is quite hard to impress was happy and we will definitely be visiting here again

“Cope well with large groups - great atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

My partner and I only live down the road from the Master Thatcher so we go here quite often. Its nice to have a dog friendly pub on your door step so we can enjoy a nice pub snack and a drink on a Friday or a Saturday night with our dog there (and not stuck in front of the TV at home!).

I like it in here. The staff are really friendly and welcoming, particularly the young lad that works there, he is so helpful !!!

I recently arranged an 18th birthday meal here for 22 people. I am amazed at how well the staff coped. I made sure I dropped a pre order in before lunch time the same day and as promised it was served on time and all at once. The food was lovely and most of us really enjoyed the meal (bar one couple but you cant please everyone!).

They allowed us to decorate the table before the meal (as it was a surprise) and when we went in to do this, the lad (as mentioned above) was really helpflul and let us get on with things but not without offering his help if we needed it.

All round lovely place to go, food is lovely, staff are helpful, comfortable and welcoming family atmosphere, with live bands and kareoke sometimes at the weekend. It offers that night out feel without being too rowdy, too in your face and having to experience the nightlife in Taunton.

Always a winner for us and thank you to the Master Thatcher for all their help on Saturday.

“Excellent meal, Good price”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Had a good meal at the Master Thatcher last night. The menu is varied with a number of choices, I had the jugged steak which was delicious. Also eaten was the pork dish and the ham, eggs and chips, followed by brownie sundaes and the waffle pudding. All were excellent. We were served by a very helpful lady who told us that all the dishes were prepared in the kitchen by the chef. Well worth a visit.

“Not a fan”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

I think we possibly came on the wrong evening but it was really dead so no atmosphere at all. Chips were nice though..

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

We booked a table with little notice, we were running late and increased out guest numbers, there was no problem and the staff were happy to accommodate our changes.
We got table service, the young lady taking the drinks and food order didn't make a single mistake, even with how big our clan was. We had a fair few children with us and the time from ordering our food to us eating it was under 25mins(brilliant time for the 14 of us in total) & the fact the restaurant was packed, the beer garden was also full. This didn't stop the food from being outstanding! One of the staff checked on us to see if we were ok and continued to keep our drinks flowing so we didn't once have to leave the table. We were unable to fit in deserts as we were full up from the good sized portions of food but after the waitress brought over the children all lollies, which made them very happy.
If there were to be one negative comment it would be the lack of specials, however they still have a very large menu to choose from.
Bravo to The Master Thatcher, it would be silly to not give this little gem a try!
