Long Description:
Building is over 500 years old (pub since 1623) one of the oldest pubs in Stratford.
The only thatched building in the town.

Brick and timber-framing with painted brick infill construction.

After a spate of fires in the town, a town ruling stipulated any building with a thatched roof that caught fire had to be replaced with a tiled roof.

The Old Thatch Tavern obviously never caught fire!
