Reviewed May 19, 2013

As always The Cat provided a great dining experience with tasty and well presented food complemented by a good selection of quality wines. The ambience is varied through the dining areas but all have their charm and the service is quick, efficient and friendly. For really good pub grub it is hard to beat.

“Fantastic stay and food”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Great people running an exceptional pub with very clean bedrooms, great food and a very warm welcome. Will definitely be returning to this great hostelry in a lovely part of the country. The local bluebell woods are also stunning making a perfect two days.

“Weekend Visit”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Called without reservations early on both Friday and Saturday evenings and despite being full, Andrew was very helpful and fitted us in. Really enjoyed the variety of starters, mains and desserts on offer, something for everyone, very well cooked and presented. Staff first class, and Andrew worked as hard as they did. The chef clearly enjoys what he is doing ! Would certainly call again when next in the area.
