Love The Cat and the Fiddle, but the Patio needs a complete overhaul, it wouldn’t take a lot but for those of us who loved the courtyard on Sunset they need to step it up

Ordered the vegan nut roast with Sunday roast vegetable sides. The pie pastry was totally raw and inedible, the rest of the food was bland. Service was below average it felt like it was a real pain for the waitress to come over and check or take a drinks order, when the plates were collected it was quite obvious the pie was raw but the waitress made no mention of it just carried it away as if there wasn’t an uneaten raw meal on the plate. I felt very disappointed by the meal and service, I will not be going back or recommending this place.

I’m not sure if this was the restaurant that used to be on Sunset, but in any event, it was cute, cozy, but also fun. The staff was very friendly and the food wonderful & moderately priced.

Great place to take a group. We came by with some friends after our daughters dance recital across the street. We made a reservation that surpassed our original headcount, but, the servers and staff were more than willing and able to accommodate. Super friendly folks from start to finish. They were able to secure a spot at their back patio area which was nicely shaded. Our orders and requests were quickly taken. This was of the utmost importance since we had some hungry kiddos. The menu is quite varied and offered lots of options. A quick rindown of our orders: Shepherds pie, garden salad, side salad, fish and chips, beef dip sandwich, turkey sandwich, scotch egg, chicken tenders, sliders and a burger. Not the most calorically friendly of items, but, good quality ingredients and very tasty. The building is very deceiving from the outside considering how pleasant the indoor aesthetics are. Nice indoor/outdoor patio that is well mingled with the pub area.

Overall, very good bar food and amazing service.

Surprisingly, in the middle of the city, the restaurant had parking spots out back. We were pleasantly surprised to enter a nice outdoor garden with comfortable seating. We were immediately seated at the time of our reservation. The server was very pleasant, took our order quickly, and brought our drinks right away. My wife said the Angus burger was probably the best ever. There was an interesting selection of dinner pies including a chicken curry pie. I chose the traditional Shepherds pie but will try another next time. Like the Angus burger, the Shepherds pie was the best ever. The meat was seasoned perfectly and so was the gravy. We will definitely return to try their other specialties.

Two of us ordered the beef wellingtons and they came out very overcooked (no pink whatsoever). When we asked to send them back, we were encouraged to get a different menu item, as the server wasn’t confident they’d come out better the second time. We went there to try the beef wellingtons, so we won’t be going back

Hi Geli, So sorry to hear about your experience. Normally we sell many beef wellingtons and people love the item. I'm sorry for your experience and I hope that will you will give us another try as we are just getting back into motion and not used to the volume on the weekends we have been experiencing. All the best, Ashlee

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.

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.
