My husband and I went with another couple for dinner at around 5:30pm on a Saturday night. We got a table for four by the door. Luckily we got there when we did as they were getting pretty busy. Not too big inside, but the deco is wonderful. Felt like we stepped back in time to an old pub in... More

Large private protected patio. Great service and food. Someone working there has a green thumb. The perimeter walls of the patio is a cascade of vines and flowers. Beautiful setting.

The Cat and Fiddle serve draught beers, good old English favorite meals, i.e. fish and chips, pie etc. There is a small patio area where you can enjoy sitting in the summer.

We went on a Friday night with another couple and the food and ambiance were so good we came back the following Friday night with two other couples. The second trip involved a foodie. She tried the Lambeth pie I'd had the week before and was impressed. Each of our diners was happy with their choice and no one left... More
