The Thatched Tavern | Ascot (UK)

This beautiful 400-year-old beamed tavern, with its cosy bar and glowing fires is located just outside Ascot (UK). “The Thatch”, as it is endearingly known is steeped in local history. Even in the 1700‘s, it was a well-known landmark and it is said that Queen Victoria’s Royal Carriage was sometimes seen outside, while John Brown was fortifying himself inside before his onward journey to Windsor Castle.

Good “old fashioned” indulgence is the order of the day in the restaurant, where you’ll find classic English fayre and daily fresh fish specials on the a la carte menu. Delicious and comforting food.

The Thatched Tavern is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. The à la carte menu offers 8 Starters (£6.50-£9.50), 10 Mains (£12.95-£18.25), 6 Sides (£3.50-£4.50), 5 Desserts (£5.60-£6.95) and a cheese board (£9.50). There is also a Sunday Menu (2-courses at £24.50, 3-courses at £28.50)

We went in September 2018 for dinner. Although I didn’t make any notes that day, I don’t want you to miss out on the pictures of the dishes.

I’m sorry I can’t do a review of this one, but without notes I simple can’t remember all details of the dishes, flavours, etc. and I certainly don’t want to make something up.

The Thatched Tavern is on my list to visit again and I will be sure to do a proper review next time.
