The South Cotswolds holds many attractions and events and the Cat is superbly situated to be able to enjoy many of these. Both the historic towns of Tetbury and Malmesbury are within a stone’s throw of us.

A three-mile radius encompasses Westonbirt Arboretum and Westonbirt school, Highgrove gardens, and the Beaufort polo club. Badminton and Gatcombe horse trials are both within easy reach. We are 24 miles from the Roman spa town of Bath and from the city of Bristol, both with their many attractions. Cheltenham races are 34 miles from the Cat.

Apart from these attractions, we are in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with many wonderful walks direct from our front door. We welcome well-behaved dogs.
Our chef’s mission is to serve delicious pub food at reasonable prices. Our ingredients are fresh and largely sourced from local suppliers. Our menu changes with the seasons and availability of quality produce.

    A wonderful experience, great food, lovely ambience. A special mention to Bobby who provided a fantastic guest experience for us. I don’t think I’ve ever met such a well mannered young man.

    The food was delicious with a good range for a Sunday lunchtime. My only comment was that I did enjoy sitting almost in a corridor close to the front door with the draught from it. The rest of the restaurant looked lovely and I would prefer to sit in the comfortable areas.

    Disappointing as there was no alternative to milk (eg oat milk) so was unable to have coffee. Also lack of dairy free pudding apart from sorbet. Quite a pricey meal, especially as the 12 year old couldn’t eat all the huge beef burger!

    We had superb Saturday evening dinner and Sunday lunch at the Cat and Custard Pot over one weekend, both of which were superb. Locally-sourced, delicious food presented beautifully and without fuss or gimmick, quietly attentive service from very friendly staff, and a lovely warm ambience. We were very well fed and felt extremely well look-after.

    We live in the area but this was our first ever visit, although we had only heard good reviews about it. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime and were welcomed warmly and shown our table. Young, hard working, polite and polished staff. Lovely atmosphere and wonderful food. A tad expensive but you get what you pay for and the whole experience was very memorable.

    We arrived muddy, wet and slightly cold. We received a very warm welcome, with muddy boots no problem. “We are a walkers pub” was the response to our concerns regarding mess. The service was, as always, excellent as was the food and wine. Cannot recommend the establishment highly enough, though would prefer to keep it a secret!

    Cheese soufflé was excellent, just needed a bit more seasoning for me. The slow cooked shin of beef was a little chewy. I hadn’t expected it to be shredded and it seemed like all the fat had been removed resulting in it being a bit dry and lacking in flavour.

    The Pub was lively and the ambience was buzzing. Lots of dogs though, I don’t mind them, we are dog owners but if you’re not a fan maybe not for you. The dining room was so uncomfortably hot, the waitresses kindly did their best to turn the fire and radiators down and also opened the window as all of our party were uncomfortable as were the waitresses. Sadly the next party arrived a shut them so our repreve didn’t last long. Not sure if the radiators need looking at as the valves didn’t seem to alter up or down. Food was nice except my partners steak overcooked but we’d had a long wait between courses so he didn’t want to complain. We moved into the bar after our main and had coffee in there. On the whole, a nice place but the ladies toilets had no paper even at only 7pm when we arrived. Just needs a bit of attention to detail. I would recommend the pizza restaurant as we are there previously and it was lovely but due to the excessive heat I wouldn’t go back to the main restaurant in winter.

    An excellent place to eat. The food was delicious. We enjoyed the mushroom salad and ham hock croquettes followed by the Pork Belly and Beef. Only thing that would’ve made it perfect was to be told what was on the specials board like we overheard others being told, before we had ordered. But still very much a lovely experience.

    The pub restaurant at The Cat and the Custard Pot was lovely. Very cosy, the wood burner was blazing away but it wasn't too hot. The layout is really nice with only a few tables in each room. The food was excellent, my husband said his rump steak was the best he'd had and he's eaten a lot of steaks! My chicken was delicious and we both loved the cheese souffles. The desserts were good but we were rather full by that time. The portions were just right and nicely presented without being fussy. We would definitely recommend a meal here.

    I completely loved the experience just the right amount of attention. The food was well presented and fresh made with wholesome goodness not that out the freezer look you get some places. Great value, the staff were very polite and helpful even the locals were friendly. An all round great place to sit eat chat and feel good. I absolutely loved the name cat and custard pot. Enjoyed my pot of custard there too. My advice if you have not been it’s a must that you go.
