Restaurant description

Dating back to the 19th century, The Thatched House near Upminster boasts well-loved British pub cuisine in a wild countryside setting, near to the eye-catching Thames Chase Forest. Featuring a pretty al fresco beer garden and a cosy hearth-fire, The Thatched House has a more modern appearance, with clean, bold colours, sleek furniture and ornate mirrors.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Thatched House menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Thatched House ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

At just 4 minutes’ drive to central Upminster, The Thatched House is nestled in the Essex countryside.

    We had a lovely afternoon. Nice food and good atmosphere, and great service. The only complaint we have was that the the Yorkshire puddings were all served burnet/over cooked. One of our party did return there’s but it wasn’t enough to make us all do the same. To be honest I was a little surprised the chef allowed the plates out with such obviously burnt food. Hopefully next time the kitchen staff will get their timings down.

    Why am i getting this when i received a phone call a few hours before the meal to say they had to cancel due to a fire in the kitchen. I had booked for 8 people and it was too late to book somewhere else. The birthday meal for 2 people was ruined
