Very busy with a good atmosphere. Good selection on the menu and the food was delicious. Set beside a canal it's a lovely place to go to eat.

We visited the Cat last weekend for lunch. We arrived early, but the patio was already full, so we settled inside this charming, friendly pub. I first delighted my family by identifying the members of the royal family going back to King George V. Their...More
