Independent Customer Feedback

Very fair and show a passion for the vehicles not just as a way to earn from them

Alan Morris

The Thatched Garage staff have serviced my Defender for 5 years and as on this occasion their work has always been top quality. In addition their helpfulness and pleasant attitude has always made it a pleasure to have the work done by them. I would certainly recommend them without reservation.

Paul Bartlett

Concerned as I normally take my car to be serviced north of Tunbridge Wells but decided to go closer to home. As The Thatched Garage deal with Land Rover I took my chances! Not to worry as they we very efficient. I missed not having my car washed as the previous company always clean my car before pick up. Never mind

Susan Jenkinsons

No job too small. Efficient and friendly service.

Nicholas Larkin

Friendly & efficent service.

John Mintern

I had not used this garage before and Paul was very helpful when I made the enquiry to book my car in for a service. The service was £200 less than the main dealer and everything looked to have been checked over. They advised on work to be done but were not pushy. Car was available when arranged. First impressions very good.

Mike Thorpe

Every year i always have my service and MOT done at the Thatched Garage but this year i decided to also have a full valet and ceramic glass coat inside and out and wow. I have never seen this car so clean, on top of that i had the short shift gear stick mechanism fitted and again wow! Lovely gear changes and no stick vibration. i can't recommend enough the work done by the mechanics and the service staff here.

Tim Brown

Excellent service and very helpful team who kept me updated throughout the service.

Ashley Edwards

I would certainly buy another vehicle and continue to use services. Great polite team there, helpful and good advice. Very accommodating and flexiable during the bad weather to fit MOT in.

Gavin Muller

Excellent service all completed to a high standard. Honest appraisal of work needed and completed on time. Courtesy car service good. Would recommend unreservedly.

William Speight

Completed a tweaks to my 90 from engine upgrades and exhaust upgrade, have worked on our discovery all with great satisfaction

Brent Kearney

Good advice on what needed to be done and checked with me as other things occurred during the work. Overall the job was completed faster than expected

W Lovell

The team here, led by Ben are awesome. I get my general service done for several hundred pounds less than a main dealer but all the service records and warranties remain intact. They both sell and fit competitively priced accessories but more than that, their range is hand picked from years of experience to be the best of the best equipment and then they top it off with a level of customer service that can only be described as doing business with one of your own close mates. Nothing is ever too much trouble for these guys.

Dave Fox-Dossett

Swift and knowledgeable service- very pleased with the work carried out- will definitely be using the thatched garage again for the Defender.

James Long

I have used the thatch garage for many years and always found the service excellent. I rely on my Landrovers for my business so can not have them off the road for to long and all the staff at the thatch garage go out of their way to get my landrovers back on the road as soon as possible. I would highly recommend this garage to any Landrover owner

Paul Smith

Vehicle service & MOT carried out without fuss or excuses. Good value for money.

Defender Tuning & Upgrades


When this whole Adventure started way back in 1987, no one could possibly have foreseen what was going to happen.

By dint of always looking after every single customer, trying to put a smile on each of those faces, giving good friendly advice, offering only lovely pre owned Series® & Defender® 4×4s that would offer yeoman service to their new owners, ensuring prices were right and that aftercare including perhaps servicing, parts, accessories and even the inevitable odd hiccup were all dealt with professionally and with great care, we are now approaching an incredible landmark: nearly 6,000 Land Rovers® sold!

We are genuinely proud to have served overall tens of thousands of customers, and through dedication, hard work and consummate experience developed a brand that we can be proud of – with trust, value and customer service our keynotes.

Not for us are the vulgar margins of some, the catch me quick routines, the inability to help when needed; we’ve been here about the longest and we don’t intend to change our principles any time.
