Lunch for me and 28 of my friends. Group menu included yorkshire pudding and roast beef which was AWESOME. Eat it. Be happy. Good selection of beers. I'll be back in the summer for the pizza on the patio from their wood-fired outdoor oven.

We checked out ‘the cat’ this week at the recommendation of a few friends. What a gem! Lovely patio and staff. Very, very accommodating for my gluten free needs (celiac). Excellent pub food. Will absolutely be back again and again!
