Not worth the money
Dec 2021 • Friends
My friend was bought a wowcher for her birthday. It cost £33 for 2 people. What a disappointment. 2 rounds of bread cut in fingers as sandwiches with no butter, tuna, cheese and onion, ham. Dry
Tiny cakes. No crisps. Not worth the money!!

Travelled from Leicester to Nottingham for a disappointing experience.

I am in cat Wonderland.
Friendly cats - friendly staff. A wonderful warming start to December - listening to Christmas songs surrounded by cats.

Not a good experience
Nov 2021 • Friends
Not a good experience here. Too many people in the cafe with too many children running around and going up to the cats with no care nor supervised by parents. The cats looked scared and uncomfortable with the noise and number of people going up to them.
Need to have less people with an age limit.
Service was slow taking 45 minutes to get simple food such as nachos and chips.

Thank you! This was a birthday treat and i loved every second and aspect of it. The staff is super) friendly and my food was great. Best was of course the cats! Im utterly in love with them all. It is really nice to see all interaction is on the cats terms as well (so dont expect a petting zoo) We will be back soon. L

£6 per person even before entering !!
Nov 2021 • Family
The cats were lovely bit felt robbed as the website does not make you aware of the £6 per adult & £4 per child just to enter the place !!!. We only had a drink no food as felt robbed with the entrance fee.
Staff were pleasant enough but some parents need to be vigilant of there children as there were a few cats that were being chased around.

Awesome but exciting
Nov 2021
The cafe is simply excellent, and meeting those wonderful cats is superb. The only downside of this cafe is that you have to pay 6 pounds to get inside and the food is quite expensive for the quantity that you get served, but I believe it is about the happiness of meeting and being with those cats rather than the food itself

The best experience I could possibly have.
Nov 2021 • Couples
My boyfriend took me here as a date and I must say it was the best thing ever. One of the kittens have cleaned me hers and it was so adorable that I'm pretty sure I'll cry on my way out. I would recommend it worth more than 5* ❤

Super cute cafe

This cat cafe is super cute and one of the best ones I’ve been too, very clean, cosy and comfortable. I would recommend going, and I would love to come again if I’m in Nottingham!

Where do I start????
Booked this experience through a gift voucher. Booking was accepted and we travelled from Birmingham to Nottingham for it.
Upon arrival, I presented the voucher and I was told they don’t accept them during school holidays. They were shown all the booking emails and ACCEPTANCE of the voucher booking and would still not accept it. I work in a school so there was no way we could rebook. The girl asked if I could use it on an inset day - I had to explain that teaching staff have to go in to work for training etc. and that would not be an option.
There was nothing in the terms and conditions pointing this out. The voucher would not be accepted and if we wanted the experience, we had to pay. Reluctantly, we agreed to it and they suggested we contacted the voucher company for a refund. A cop out on their behalf.
So to the experience…..
We were seated at a table and given menus to choose from. As an afternoon tea had been booked, we kept to that decision and ordered our afternoon tea. We had a choice of three drinks - (loose leaf) tea, coffee or hot chocolate. We could not have a cold drink as an alternative.
Our hot drink arrived (no refills) and, once we had drank them, the food arrived. Finger sandwiches (cheese and onion and tuna and cucumber), a scone each with jam and cream and some small cubes of cake (chocolate and mint, lemon and carrot cake with a pointless blob of cream in the centre - clotted cream had been provided with the scones). At £21.95, this was really poor value. None of the sandwiches had butter, just the fillings and that was sparse. (I will try to upload a photo of one of the sandwiches.) As we had already had a disagreement with the cafe, I didn’t want to complain about the food either, although in hindsight, I should have.
In addition, there was a fee charged at £6.00 per person for cat welfare.
I know they were busy, but the service was appalling. There was no offer of more drinks and it was difficult to attract attention. I did ask for some water with the order but it never arrived.
Now to the cats - those poor kitties. The venue had quite a few children there (half term holiday) and those poor cats were continually persecuted. You could see cats were unhappy with this and they seemed to constantly try to hide or climb up on shelving to keep themselves safe.
We paid our bill and left.
This company needs to seriously review its policy on the welfare of the cats. They obviously put profits before cat welfare. Children under 16 should not be permitted to attend. They need to sort their housekeeping out. Why say yes to vouchers that you can’t use. It’s still money at the end of the day and whether we paid or they accepted the voucher, monetary values were the same.
If you are thinking of buying vouchers for this establish as a present, don’t bother. You can’t use them in the evening, weekends or during school holidays. Options are extremely limited.
If you are thinking of visiting, think carefully. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend it at all. If you do go, try to go when children are unlikely to be there as your experience will definitely be spoilt. This is not the fault of the children, it’s parental control and staff being afraid to say something. If you support cat welfare, donate to a registered rescue centre instead. Donations will be more appreciated and put to better use.
