WHY OUR PUB IS GREAT
If you love traditional pubs, then the ‘Thatch’ is the place for you! Traced as far back as 1845, it was originally called The Crown, being renamed the Old Thatched Inn in the 1970s.
It is believed the ‘Thatch’ was previously a farm, where the owner lived upstairs and kept his animals downstairs! He began brewing his own ale and opened up his house to sell beer to the locals.
Stories of ghostly occurrences have been rife over the years, including reports of the Earl of Stamford, a local landowner from years ago, who is said to walk through the old door that was previously at the corner of the building!
While you're visiting enjoy a wide range of cask ales, draught lager, cider or wine - we have it all. Hungry, we have a menu jam packed with everything from steaks to curry nights through to tasty Sunday roast dinners.

Safety is our Priority
Caring for our People Makes Sense
- Looking after our teams means they can look after you.
- This starts with providing our already fantastic teams with additional training to follow safe COVID-19 working procedures and regulations.
- Each day team members will complete a health screening questionnaire to confirm they are in good health prior to beginning work.
- We ask that you do your bit and respect our teams and any requests they have. It’s all with your safety in mind.
Keeping Social, whilst Social Distancing Makes Sense
Look out for additional signage in pub to establish safe, social distancing
This might include:
- Highlighting where and how you order at the bar
- Removing some tables to ensure comfortable social distancing can be maintained
- Managing capacity, meaning you may be asked to queue outside
Caring for you, your friends and family Makes Sense
- Hand sanitiser is available to use at every entrance for your peace of mind.
- Once inside we’re taking as many steps as possible to reduce contact
- Our menus will be used only once and are fully recyclable once you’ve finished with it
