This visit was to enjoy the competion meal from the Marsh Cat's nominated entry for the above competition. The whole occasion was enjoyable and the staff work well to provide excellent service. We have been many times in the past before the new owners took over and been equally impressed. The chef takes his inspiration from good "home cooking" as... More

Really can't fault the food! We visit about once a month! Unfortunately we might as well have been invisible! We sat with our plates from the main course for 20 mins after we finished, got given the desert menu, waited, waited.. Then finally got sick of waiting and asked the waitress to take our order! Disappointing that the service was... More

I booked the upstairs room for my 40th birthday celebration in December. We had 45 guests, everyone of them was looked after impecably and the food was fantastic, I'm still getting comments now as to how impressed they were ! The new bar upstairs is a great addition. If you are looking for a venue with a great food, neat... More

Service was very good given how busy they were and food quality excellent including really nice individual dishes of veg. We were upstairs with a... More

I haven't been to The Marsh Cat for a long time, it has improved out of all recognition and I understand the reason is that it is under new ownership. Enjoyed my festive lunch here today, had the pheasant which was cooked to perfection, couldn't fault a thing, the staff are lovely and the view as great as ever, I... More

This was our second visit to The Marsh Cat and we were not disappointed. One of our friends who seldom finishes any course, ate the lot both main and sweet. I need not have asked her if she enjoyed it. The food is very good and the service friendly. It is not posh but that doesn't matter. Go for the... More

Went with friends for an evening meal. The menu has some different options to the norm. For my starter I had Seafood Thailandaise which I can best descibe as a tasty, spicy chowder, it was excellent and very warming after a day out exploring in the cold. Followed by Cajun Pork & King Prawns which was first class. The place... More

Wet and windy Friday evening. Very tasty food from the set menu. Ginger beer made the lips tingle. Attentive service. Offered extra veg. Not busy but a pleasant atmosphere. Would return. Parking difficult along the front.

We dined here with two friends on a Monday evening when most places in the area were closed. Albeit a little quiet, we found the atmosphere very relaxing, a little rustic with views over the marshland which was once the ancient port of Parkgate. The menu was varied with something for everyone and the food was tasty and presented well.... More

Under new management and been given a refurb, the Marsh Cat provides great food, good ambience, beautiful views at very reasonable prices. The service could have been better and has been on previous visits. Set menus very good value!
