This is a great restaurant for everyone. We always have our sports parties here, for various sports, and Lisa is always welcoming. Never think to go anywhere else when we plan to go out for dinner and drinks.

The Cat and Fiddle continues to provide a great atmosphere, friendly staff, good pub food and drinks. The yorkie bowls are always a treat. Never had anything I didn't like. Special events like Robbie Burn's Night are a lot of fun as well.
