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.

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.
