What they thought..

March 2012 “Absolutely Fantastic Venue, food & staff”
We got married on the 23rd March & had our wedding reception at The Thatched Tavern. We have eaten there many times before and never had a bad meal, so thought it was the ideal place to hold our wedding reception. Mick and Fiona couldn’t have helped more and bent over backwards to accommodate all that we wanted. I am the kind of person that can complain at the smallest of things but everything was perfect. It was the icing on the cake to our wedding. We stayed overnight in one of the 2 new rooms which have been completed to a very high standard. The bed gave a great nights sleep and the breakfast is to die for. A huge thank you to Mick, Fiona and all the hard working staff for their help. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day. The setting is amazing and we cannot wait to see our lovely wedding photos.

June 2012 “Best Meal Ever”
We decided to host our wedding reception at The Thatched Tavern, in addition to staying the night in the B+B. I can definitely say that the food is exceptional and the staff are marvellous. Our guest raved about the steak pie and cheesecake, and me and my new wife are happy to rave about the superb quality of the accommodation and the hearty breakfast. We would recommend the Thatched tavern as a wedding venue, a night out, a good meal or one of the most comfortable places you could ever stay. Thank you for the most perfect day of our lives.
