Lovely pub, with a relaxed feel, a high standard service and quality food. My partner and I were sat in a dark high ceiling annex to the pub restaurant, sat next to a table of 8. The acoustics in this particular part of the pub was awful as the table next to us were noisy. We asked to be moved and the staff were very accommodating.

The food is delicious. The staff are sociable, efficient and knowledgeable about the food and drink. We did like The Fox but The Cat is our favourite local pub to visit.

Lovely meal. We all had the day’s special of cod loin with wilted spinach, English asparagus and caper & crayfish butter sauce. Super. Very good service as well.

The real strength (besides the excellent food) of the Cat Inn is the staff. Always a friendly welcome, smiles all the time and they exhibit a pride in their work. Thank you yet again.

We regularly eat here with anything from a party of 2 to 12. Food is always excellent and they cater well for dairy free and gluten free guests. Always a good couple of vegan options also. Service great, lovely atmosphere.Usually busy so best to book.

Excellent food and served really hot. I can recommend the scotch egg - perfectly cooked, and the cherry trifle (not on the same plate though).

The shared Greek mezzo to start was delicious, and satisfied both me and my vegetarian guest. (yummy lamb meatballs for me!). We both enjoyed the roasted cauliflower main, and were too full for pudding! I had a sparkling local rose and we both enjoyed the Malbec reserve by the glass. Service was impeccable, swift, friendly and helpful. We loved where we sat, at a corner table, with fresh flowers, (nice touch) and enjoyed a memorable and spacious evening. Thank you.
