So my friends have spoken so highly about this place that I had to try it. The building is indeed very cute and the setting is wonderful....but the food was well below expectations. The burger has way too much garlic mayo which kills the taste...More

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!

Been coming to the Cheshire Cat since 1992. Get there a few times a year. It has kept its charm and manic through the years and restore. Good food, great beer. Check out the "cask beer" on tap. Love this place.

We were looking forward to visit this establishment as several people were recommending. Sadly, it was not up to par and expectation with several issues during our visit from the wrong food ordered, not delivering drinks with plates looking like kids special. We wrote directly...More
