I have reviewed this restaurant before but have just had a re-visit after a long break so I thought I'd update my review. There are many reasons to visit the red cat - the food is delicious, if you go early and eat off the market menu, £22.50 for 3 courses, it is good value, the wine list is excellent, the service is prompt but unobtrusive, the canapes are a nice touch and the full-length mirror in the ladies is extremely flattering!
From my latest visit I have discovered a couple of reasons not to visit. My first reason is extremely small and it would't really stop me from returning. They used to offer a selection of bread rolls and now you just get given one. Just a small point but a small bit of enjoyment lost from the night. The second point is rather more annoying. They now put a 10% service charge on the bill. This isn't mentioned on the menu, or wasn't on the market menu and on the bill it doesn't say it is discretionary even though I'm sure it is. I certainly never mind paying for good service but want to be able to choose how much I leave. If people have gone to the restaurant for a special occasion paying more than they normally would an extra 10% on top could stop them from visiting again.
