Re-furbished restaurant and re-vamped menu. Beautiful location and friendly service. Well worth a visit.

WOW! Having lived less than 0.5miles away from The Marsh Cat for the last few years we decided to try it out having discovered a new menu etc. We were so surprised at how good the food was. Not a single complaint. I couldn't fault the service either. I'm glad to have this little gem on our doorstep!

We live in Parkgate and often eat out but usually not near home. However we walked to the Marsh Cat last night and once again wondered why we don't go there more often. A nice ambience and nice refurb added to the enjoyment of the meal. Staff friendly and lovely service. We had two nibbles bruschetta and white bite that... More

The Marsh Cat has a great location looking out over the flat marshes of the River Dee estuary towards North Wales. We were told that the Chef has spent time in New Orleans so the food has a touch of southern spice - the Gumbo was terrific - and the story of the reason for the Restaurant's name is a... More

This restaurant is in a lovely spot with views over the Dee from the windows. The staff were warm and friendly and the food very tasteful. The only slight down was that although it was only just after nine and the other diners had gone the staff were a little noise making up tables for the following day and moving... More

For a change from normal 'pub fare' we tried the Marsh Cat on an impromptu visit to the area. The bistro was pleasing to the eye and we were made very welcome, the atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable. A great menu and excellent wine list, yes you can spend plenty if you want to push the boat out, but... More

We came over from Australia to visit relatives. All I can say is the lady who put the hand written menus in front of us was down right rude when we said although we had eaten we would like coffees. Her answer was sorry this is a restaurant there is a coffee shop across the road. Given that the place... More

Four of us dined on Tuesday night 3 gave 4* I give 3* I used to visit a few times a year but have found that the menu is now too cheffy for me & also it is quite expensive. a £1.50/£2 reduction would make a fair price. All the meals were enjoyed, but my lamb dish wasn't very tasty,... More

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant after reading about it on a foodie blog site. We had a window seat with excellent views across the Dee estuary to Wales. Luckily it was a fine sunny day. We arrived early - around 12:15pm - and parked round the rear of the restaurant in a free public car park.... More
