The Thatch, situated in the village of Crinkill, is one of the oldest pubs in South Offaly and, as its name suggests, has always been thatched. The Thatch restaurant is one of the finest places to eat in the midlands region. Our chefs take great care in providing our guests with delicious food, prepared to the highest standards. The Thatch has the unique distinction of being in the same family ownership for nigh on 200 years and the present owner Des Connole is the fifth generation to carry on business there. Many of the older generation remember this quaint and indeed exclusive pub as Mother Walsh’s and every summer, visitors from abroad come to visit it and reflect on stories told to them by fathers and grandfathers who affectionately remember happy evenings in the warm atmosphere of this fine traditional pub.
