Following on from the announcement that we will be facing tier two restrictions coupled with the locally high R rate, The Thatch will remain closed until at least the 9th of December.

We hope to bring you another update soon with our plans for the rest of December.


The quickest and easiest way for you to book a table is using our Opentable widget below!


After 4pm each day we will only be accepting pre-booked customers, so make sure to do book to avoid disappointment!


Walk-ins will be accepted where possible during the day, but we recommend booking your table at any time to be on the safe side!

PLEASE NOTE: There is a maximum of 6 people allowed per table according to COVID restrictions. Please note that we will require contact details upon arrival.

There’s something quite beautiful about the unpredictability of ‘The Thatch’. A little like the ocean that laps up against our shores, you never know what type of atmosphere you might find yourself amongst. Some days are peaceful and melancholic, others take on a whole life of their own as they mix a cocktail of interesting personalities.


For years The Thatch has drawn characters of all types to its doors and with them they bring a touch of individuality and a freshness that keeps the unique Thatch atmosphere alive.


So if you’re looking for somewhere with character, call in, we’ve got characters by the bucket load.



Pub Classics



The Thatch has always been a favourite with both visitors and locals alike. It's atmosphere and outstanding service are just a part of what makes it famous. The warm and friendly atmosphere welcomes people through it's doors to a traditional, well stocked bar that boasts local ales as well as your all your favourite tipples. For those of you who like Mexican, make sure you try our famous nachos.
