The Thatched  Tavern was situated at 50 Eaton Road. This pub closed in 2006 and is now used as a private residence which retains the original pub name.
 

 
Review from tantallon.org.uk:
The more northerly of the two pubs in Appleton, this one appears to be open for longer, and is run by a middle-aged couple. It was too dark to tell whether the pub genuinely is thatched. They have four pumps in operation, two of which seem to be connected to casks of Brakspear Bitter, and one of the others was connected to the Brakspear Special. The Brakspear Bitter I had here was a lot better than the stuff in the Catherine Wheel at Sandford-upon-Thames.
The food is good and averagely priced (many main courses for under 5), and the service seems friendly enough (Brakspear, I should point out, should be pronounced to rhyme with Shakespeare), there's a reasonable fire, the atmosphere is good, but unfortunately, and like most of the pubs out in this direction, they have piped Fox FM.
Customary warning: The Jonathan Crisp crisps on sale here are made with peanut oil.
