then and now

an 18th century iconic building and the first and last thatched roof in town.

BACK THEN:

Built as a holiday home in the 18th Century for a chap named William Leeves, the cottage was originally right on the beach, until the introduction of the seawall in 1885. Now just a few steps away from the sand, The Old Thatched Cottage sits proudly overlooking the water as the oldest building in town.

From a quaint holiday cottage to busy tea rooms, before finally becoming one of Weston-super-Mare’s most popular restaurants, The Old Thatched Cottage has been owned and operated by the Michael family since it was purchased by Axentis Michael back in 1959.

RIGHT NOW:

This iconic Grade II listed landmark on the town’s seafront offers a perfect mix of old and new… original 18th Century features, period charm and the only remaining thatched roof in Weston-super-Mare, combined with a laid-back atmosphere, contemporary lighting and a really-very-cool outside terrace area.

As a proudly independent, family-run restaurant, handed down through the generations, Maria (Axentis’s grand-daughter) and her team bring together over 50 years of expertise to create a first-rate, affordable dining experience in Weston-super-Mare.
