Excellent food.

First went to the Marsh Cat when it initially opened and last went about 5 years ago. It was reported that it had changed hands so haven't bothered since. However found out that original owners still at the restaurant and we went there for Sunday lunch. After a 10 year break we found the food to... read more

Booked here for lunch for New Year's Day. We had three courses. Starter was nice but very small serving of Brie parcels. For main, I had chicken which was good. The dessert was mincemeat Bakewell tart with cherry ice cream and this was delicious. Service was very good and reasonably priced for New Year. I would definitely go here again.

Asparagus no seasoning with no dressing and quails egg hard which was possibly meant to be the sauce! Fish undercooked , partially raw in one place. Turkey dinner very mundane, guinea fowl under seasoned again with a token bit of chirizo on the side. Very expensive for poor quality food. I regularly have Christmas dinner out on Christmas day. I... More

Hubby and I decided to have a treat together during a free evening of family and friends festivities. We booked at lunchtime and had the Christmas menu that evening. We were so glad we did as we had a great evening, with ambience being relaxed but with a delicious topping of being something special. My halloumi starter was really tastey... More

We visited the Marsh Cat for Christmas day lunch with family and had an outstanding four course meal. Unfortunately two family members were unable to join us due to illness. In above and beyond Christmas spirit the restaurant manager Nick and staff were extremely understanding and waived the charge at very short notice. Great food, great service and lovely atmosphere...

My wife and I visited The Marsh Cat for a meal one evening about three weeks ago. The Marsh Cat is close to where we live and we wanted to really enjoy the experience because, to be honest, it's very conveniently located and in a good location. Wherever possible we prefer to support local businesses. I would sum up our... More
