Discovered this bistro on our recent trip to Guisborough, we almost walked straight past, but very glad we didn't. My husband and I looked at the menu outside first and discovered lots of interesting and different dishes that don't usually appear on menus. We wandered inside to see if there were any spare tables, luckily we found one. Some of... More

This was a lovely little place when it first opened but it seems like they never change the menu . Also a couple of times it has felt like they were waiting for us to go so they could close - we didn't dare order dessert !

Selected one of the large number of daily specials from the blackboard (there are 3, and there's not enough room for them on one, so check each board!). I had a huge gourmet burger on a brioche roll, with skinny fries and 3 huge fried onion rings. It was served with BBQ sauce, coleslaw and a side salad, beautifully presented... More

Slightly subdued lighting makes it cosy & gives atmosphere. Good choice of lunches. We had 3 different sorts of wraps. Delicious & very well presented. We would definitely go again.

Had a fantastic evening with family and friends celebrating my Dad's 70th Birthday. The Cat's Whiskers team served up a delicious Geek Meze, including fresh salad, beef stifado, cheese saganaki, prawns and more. All topped off with home made baklava. The bistro was perfect venue for a family get together and we can't wait for an excuse to go back.

I sometimes visit The Cats Whiskers for a treat, it's a lovely little place and the service is excellent every time. I normally get a fruit scone and they're delicious. I tried one of their fruit smoothies recently too and that tasted wonderful. It's a great little café, has a calm atmosphere and is always a treat to visit.
