Summary

“The Cat looks and feels like an archetypal village pub” (“it retains a proper bar with a good range of ales and craft beers, but also has a large well-designed restaurant extension”). “In truth, it’s mostly about the food”“a cut above the average gastropub fare”, which “at its best, it’s the best”.
