Celebrating 25 years at The Thatch

April 6, 2011

No parking spaces, a packed pub, live music, beer, wine, champagne flowing – just a normal night in Croyde then? Well kind of… add to that a chocolate fountain, photo booth, DJ and someone winning a car! It could only be Rocky and the team at The Thatch celebrating its 25th year!

They have been running a competition to celebrate 25 years of good times and wanted everyone to join in the fun by sharing all their photos, stories and memories of partying at Croyde’s Famous Freehouse since they started way back in ’85!

“We’ve had the most amazing journey, had great times and met some wonderful people over those years; now we want to take some time to look back and smile – share the good times with old friends and make some news ones along the way”

To enter the competition all you had to do was send in your wild and crazy photos of partying in the Thatch anytime between April ’85 and 31st Dec 2010!

The fantastic Fiat 500c car was won by Mike Stocks, also known as Mr Pickle. Check out his winning photo above that had the caption – ‘It’s legendary – wherever I play gigs up and down the country and I mention I’m from Croyde, someone always cheers and shouts out ‘The Thatch!’

Congratulations to Rocky and his team for 25 years of bringing you excellent pub food, real ales and fine wines tonight! They have amazing menus and a daily choice of specials offering local fresh fish and farm produce from across Devon and Exmoor. All this served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere! Swing by and check them out at The Thatch
