Cute British pub

We really enjoyed our visit to this pub. Service was friendly and the food was tasty. Great wings with a nice variety of flavours available. The atmosphere is very authentic.

Been there three times now and will never go back. The food was actually pretty good, once we received the correct order. Our order was screwed up royally the first two times, then the third time, as part of our selection, we ordered the Irish Nachos. I called them once I got home and mentioned that they forgot the sour... More

I came here for dinner for the first time on our trip to Cobourg and had a good experience there. The food was good and the place had a traditional pub feel to it however the service wasn't very good. Overall I would recommend trying this place.

Good tasting food and good value for your money. Scottish food on the menu (sadly no haggis) is nice in an area full of fast food restaurants. Friendly staff, daily specials and live music Friday night's.

After a long walk in the woods we were looking for dinner, I looked up TA and decided on this pub as we like pubs (and the star rating was decent). As far as pubs go, the decor is decent but old and tired. There were a few people at the bar, and another couple were dining. I ordered shepherd's... More

We found ourselves looking for food later in the evening and a local recommended the Cat & the Fiddle. While we were not sure what we were interested in eating when we stepped into the pub, we were a bit disappointed to hear that after 9 pm, the menu was scaled down and limited. We chose the wings and the... More

Nice little pub in Cobourg. Standard beers on tap. The apps are pretty good. Everyone at our table like the fried brie. Nice side patio with lots of shade on a hot day.

If your looking for a dive bar then you've found it !!. Nothing really redeeming about this place. People seam to like it but I don't see the attraction.
