Possibly Croyde Bay's most famous freehouse, The Thatch has been the haunt of local surfers and holidaymakers for the past 25+ years.


With a famous surfing beach right on its doorstep, a bustling campsite just down the road and the regions' other noted North Devon surf spots of Woolacombe and Saunton Sands lying close by, it's no wonder the Thatch goes off in summer.

Grab a wave before retiring to the Thatch for a jar and some grub or make a night of it with your mates - the choice is yours.

The Thatch offers regular live entertainment, roaring log fires, a great selection of beers, fantastic pub nosh and onsite accommodation for those worse for wear at the end of the night.

If you're serious about your watersports and après then the Thatch is one not to be missed!
