Best crispy chicken wings in the area. Live entertainment every Friday night. Really great food! While the restaurant itself is very dingy (some may call it rustic), the food makes up for it.

We visited the Cat & Fiddle several times during our recent visit to Cobourg. The pub offers a nice selection of beers. The atmosphere is cozy inside and there is a patio that is nice. The Irish Nachos are excellent and great for sharing. While they no longer take credit cards there is an ATM in the lobby.

They don't take credit cards which was strange in today's economy. The food was average but the beer was warm.
