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.

Visited here 22nd September and was not disappointed. Greeted by a cheerful fellow, tasteful decor throughout and the food was just heavenly! I had the slow cooked pork belly dish and it was so flavoursome! Plenty of crackling which was fab, a real treat! My other half had the salmon dish and he loved it! Only regret is that the 22nd was our last night and wish we discovered this lovely establishment sooner! We will be back!
