The place looks okay from the outside but the interior is in need of some attention, not clean at all. There were cobwebs all over lampshades. The food was average at best. Wasn't expecting a lot just popped in for convenience. However, if you manage to cock up fish and chips and a beef burger then you shouldn't bother cooking.... More

We had booked a room at The Cat as we were visiting relatives nearby so it was very conveniently located. Unfortunately, our flight in was delayed by five hours and so we had to pop in to pick up the keys before heading off for dinner so we didn't get there when it had closed. Everyone was very friendly and... More

I have already reviewed this restaurant but it has not been put on here. Perhaps it has not been aired on here because it was extremely critical as our experience and the food was so disappointing. We paid £58 per person for mediocre food.

We had a room that was separate from the pub which was nice, only three steps into it was a bonus as well. It was a basic room but plenty of space and the bathroom/shower was good. The room backed onto the Shropshire Union Canal, although there was no window with a view to it, which was a bit of... More

I was staying in the hotel attached and popped in to the pub for dinner. I opted for the ham hock and wasn't disopointed! It was piping hot, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. I was served by Sinead who's service was just as amazing as the food. Definitely worth a visit.

We stopped in here for a hot drink with some friends and our children after a walk. We went to order coffee and hot choclate, but were told that they could only make filter coffee as the machine was broken. We ordered drinks, but then when some others in our party asked for coffee later we were told we couldn't... More
