“Huge portions, great service”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Really difficult to choose between The Thatch and Hobb's Bistro. Excellent food, the prices on the menu seem high but portions are huge. You certainly won't leave hungry. Very fast service, on a busy saturday night we waited only 15 minutes from ordering for our 4 meals. The only possible 'complaint' is that the meals could be too big - the chicken caesar salad was nearly £14 but it would have fed 4 people! If you want a quiet, intimate atmosphere, go to Hobb's Bistro, if you want big portions without loss of quality, come to The Thatch.

Friendly staff and food was very nice and well priced. If anyone takes trip to croyde would recommend this pub/restraunt.

“Bed and breakfast heaven”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We stayed three nights with The Thatch (rm 21 across the road) and had a peaceful stay in the centre of this surfers paradise in high season. The room was bright and modern, the bed exceptionally comfortable and the ensuite shower fantastic. Breakfast each morning was fabulous and you could take it up to 12 noon for those looking for brunch instead.

Anything we'd change? If we had to be picky, just a couple of suggestions. In a heatwave, maybe a thinner duvet as we stripped the big thick one out as soon as we got there. Also, there was clearly a different chef in the kitchen on our last day who wasn't as generous with our 'things of toast' we ordered. Service was quick and efficient. Almost perfect, we'll definitely be back.

Great food, entertainment and atmosphere. Can get very busy but don't get put off as tables do come up and the food is served quickly. Get the ribs!

“Devon Dinner”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We chanced upon this place. It was busy early evening with families and I didn't like having to queue to hand in our order - but the food was good and the menu included lots of local fish.
