Shared two plates with my companion. Fish and chips and mac & cheese. And we each had a beer. Tables are distanced from each other in their "patio" area. Our server was geared up for safety and was very attentive, which we appreciate.

Their outdoors area was very spaced out and within buildings so it was pretty warm during the day even though we went on a chilly day! Food and drinks where great!

Everything was perfect for our get-away-from-work lunch outing. On the morning of, I suggested a few places to the boss, who had never been to The Cat (and maybe I kinda tipped the scales a bit by adding that it had been way too long since the rest of us had been there). He went to his office and called me 5 minutes later to say that the menu looked great and he wanted to eat there. I made an online reservation.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted warmly by Colin, who was also our server. In a skilled effort to address our social distancing concerns, he let us choose our table. The service was first rate, the food was delicious, the beer selection just right, the ambience was ideal and we all forgot about work for an hour. But none of us will forget our perfect lunch at The Cat on that beautiful afternoon. Thanks, Colin.

The atmosphere was nice and we had a great server. Portions are very small for the cost and the taste. The tastes were very off and the food had a lot of grease. The meat in the Shepherd's Pie had too much of a sweet taste, the mac and cheese had too much cheddar and tasted bland. The "spiced shrimp" were burnt and covered in pepper, no other spices. It was basically bar food claiming to be higher quality based on the prices.

Hi Gwen, Sorry to hear of your experience! I was the server that evening and day and I wasn't aware of any issues with either of those items. I wish you would of brought to my attention so I could of alerted the kitchen and fixed the issues immediately and issued a credit. Although I appreciate you are bringing it to attention now. Our kitchen is normally very consistent with our food and hopefully you will come back and give us another chance. Please email me catandfiddlerestaurant@gmail

We were sitting in a quiet little corner on a deck. The other table turned out to be great company. The Sunday roast is always great. The cocktails made with gin and lavender syrup was delicious. If you have room for dessert try the bread and butter pudding.

25 min wait for food. The waiter could of provided better service. Constantly have to ask for stuff when it’s common sense that you should bring water, ask if we want straws and ask how’s food is going. PUT MORE NAPKINS on table, with this type of food obviously you need more than one napkin.

We basically ordered everything here and only half was good

Thank you for your review! We are all trying to keep business going during these Covid times. I appreciate you were very specific with your review, thank you! It is not normally in our policy to serve water unless it is asked for. We have noticed customers don't drink water and it ends up being wasted. During Covid,, we try and limit our times at your tables for the least amount of exposure. Sometimes its hard to get all the right questions asked while we are there.

I met a couple of friends here for lunch and it was the first time I had been there since reopening during Covid. We sat on the patio which was lovely, there was a nice breeze and everyone was spread out. We were very comfortable and felt completely at ease. I generally eat a vegan diet and rarely head out to Hollywood but when I do go and eat at The Cat and Fiddle, I have the fish & chips with mushy peas. They were really good but a little greasy this time, but I would still order them again and I love their mushy peas! I do wish they would cook in grape seed oil instead of canola. That is my only misgiving in eating there, but admittedly since canola oil is an industrial seed oil that is highly inflammatory and feeds viruses, it's a big one for me. They are alway really friendly and when I want a cheat, I'll be back!

Was in the neighborhood with my family and wanted to grab dinner before heading home to the west side. Typed in “vegan” to find restaurants with options for me. I been to the old Cat & Fiddle
years ago so I knew it was English pub food. Normally I expect to eat fries and beer at a place like this but low and behold, there was a nut-quinoa roast with gravy 100% plant-based. It was indulgent, incredibly tasty, on a bed of kale and I felt I had lucked out. What a rare dish to find without containing heavy meat and dairy. I rarely eat pastries but this was so light, yet filling. Still had fries and beer on happy hour.

The server brought drawing things for the kid and we sat in the patio which was quiet in comparaison to other outdoor dining options these days (We wanted to eat at Mozza but can’t imagine enjoying the experience with the noisy traffic from Highland.)

The service was not good at all. It took the waiter 30 minutes to take or order.The waiter did not acknowledge us at all. As we attempted to leave the restaurant, the server seemed frustrated at us instead of apologizing for the poor service. I would definitely not feel comfortable coming to this restaurant in the future.

This is a really special gem in LA! The owner has a really lovely connection to the UK, through her husbands' music career as a coveted bass player! (The stories were so interesting!)

As a Brit, so wonderful experiencing a proper British roast dinner in the warmth of LA. Good ciders and beers on tap. Decent value. Great atmosphere in general -- really does feel like a British pub. Especially cool having great vegan option!!

Definitely one for the books next time we're (and you're) in LA!
