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.

I'm not sure why the capability has been abandoned here but not having credit card service does raise some questions & it can sometimes be inconvenient. Though there is an ATM on site for those who need it. We've eaten here a number of times & we've had more enjoyable meals than not, this latest visit was good too, as... More

The cat has great pub food, we often get the roast beef and mashed potatoes with gravy inside a Yorkshire pudding. Omg!!! Amazing! I love their nachos and wings too. Best nights are when they have live music!

Had 45 minutes. Took 20 minutes just to get a beer. No credit / debit. Cash only. Finished the beer, ate at Tim Hortons:( Nice local place and friendly people, however, will definitely be going elsewhere next time I am in town.

Cat and Fiddle have the best staff and the food is delish!! The staff always makes sure you feel at home. The service quick and the Staff always have friendly suggestions off the menu if you can't choose a meal option.

This little pub was a nice little spot. It was reasonable pricing and good food. The only complaint was that we waited around for probably 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged that we were there. Other than that I would definitely recommend as it is close to everything downtown.
