We made a reservation for 2 on Monday as one of my last birthday dinners for my birthday this past weekend. We get there and the server takes our drink order about 5 minutes after we get there. Then we wait 22 minutes for drinks while we see she gets drinks out to everyone else that came after us. Then we see she gets asked by someone if she got our drinks and she goes “oh no I forgot.” Whatever things happen but then it takes another 10 minutes for her to come over and tell us that they are out of mezcal that comes with the drinks and asks are we fine with regular tequila which we said fine believing it would be top shelf, nope she gave us Jose nasty Cuervo and still charged us for two drinks with mezcal. Then 15 minutes after getting our drinks she comes over and asks us if we plan on eating. Like what? It was almost 8 at this time and we made a reservation for dinner at 7pm of course we wanted to eat and if you took care of us nonwhite people like you did all the other white people in there then you would have known. We finally order and get food. She checks to make sure we have everything we needed after my friend got up and asked for condiments. Then she never checked on us again. Even after our plates were empty and she passed us multiple times to help all the other tables around us like she was constantly doing. My friend had to get up and ask for the bill. She did not want to even look or talk to us the whole time and just ignored us. As someone who was in the industry for almost 10 years and absolutely hates not tipping even on bad service, especially when we know they already judged that we won’t regardless we could just not do it. We saw and felt the mistreatment from this woman who just judged and ignored us. The food was delicious but sadly we will never go here again because of her.

Hi Shelley, Thank you for your review and very glad you enjoyed the food ! Sorry for the delayed service as we were very busy due to Covid restrictions being lifted . Yes we were out of Mezcal, but you were given Casamigos , which is a premium tequila for the same price . We do not provide service to guests based on race, religion , sex etc. We are a community pub that serves and welcomes all.

Always love coming here. We came for Easter brunch and had amazing roast beef dinner. They had some issues in kitchen this day but it was fine waiting in the lovely patio so we didn’t mind. Def. recommend to anyone who wants a real English pub experience

Came for dinner on a Saturday night. Tables were spaced appropriately and servers in face masks and shields with QR code menus. We sat up high near the roof to get more distance from other patrons which wasn't the nicest area (tradeoff) but the main level where most patrons sit was very nice. We loved the croquettes and vegan burger. Drinks were good. My boyfriend was a little disappointed by the beef wellington though.

One of my favourite pubs in LA. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly and well informed staff, great food. Their British inspired food has more flavour and tastes better than in most UK restaurants! Prices might seem a little high depending on where you’re coming from, but they are in line with the Hollywood average.

This was the first time I had been there since they moved. I like the new place. The service was excellent, and I had forgotten how good the fish and chips are. Whenever I have a need for fish and chips, which comes up more than you might think, I'll head back to the Cat and Fiddle.

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.

Glad you enjoyed our food, however, so sorry to hear about your service experience! We have a host and busser that also are helping out Saturdays to circulate the tables if they need anything. However, this is never an excuse for servers to be gossiping near your table instead of servicing you. I will look into the situation. Glad you enjoyed the food and I hope you will try us again, given our usual stellar service reviews.

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.
