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.

                                                              We really enjoyed the welcome and the food at the Cat and Custard Pot. Everything was just perfect and we had a great table by the fire. The service was spot on, despite the pub being pretty busy. We had the duck and lamb - both superbly cooked and generous portions. The Apple and Blackcurrant Crumble and custard was a great finish to the meal. Thanks so much to Lynn and the team! We'll be back.

                                                              Nice pub, not quite as good as the pictures. Food was good but not value for money, especially starters. Zero ambience, appreciate it was mid week but hearing every diners mouth fall was too much as there was no music or background atmosphere to feel like you can just enjoy the company of the people you are with. If you like hearing other people’s conversations or like everyone to hear what you have to say, this may be the perfect place. But, the staff and service were great, very accommodating.

                                                              We did wait a long time for our food. But when it came it was very good. We were placed near a fully open door so it was uncomfortably drafty. We understand that there is a need for ventilation due to Covid but we realised a bit too late that there seemed to be other tables further in which were empty which we were not offered.

                                                              We stayed at The Cat and Custard Pot for 2 nights in September and ate in the restaurant both evenings. It was a delight - we have been away recently in other places, and I have lost count of the times I have had to ask for noisy music to be turned down; however, The Cat and Custard Pot had no music playing - it was bliss. The food is prepared to a high standard, really tasty with good but not over-bearing portions. We can highly recommend The Cat and Custard Pot; we will certainly go back when we are in that area again.

One of our the four meals ordered, a duck dish, was not edible due to the quality of the meat. The staff did apologise and deducted this from the bill so no complaint with that.

                                                              Excellent food at a sensible price. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. It was busy on a Wednesday lunchtime which showed how popular it is. Only criticism is very limited vegetarian and vegan options

                                                              We booked a table on our way home from a girls weekend away in Stow-on-the-Wold. Such a lovely Sunday roast. I would definitely recommend.

                                                              Lovely pub building with charming front garden. Service attentive and professional. The disappointment is the quality of the food - very ordinary indeed. Won’t be dining again and imagine it is a nice spot for a pint and a chat rather than lunch.

                                                              Good was lovely and overall had a great time but service was a little sporadic. Started off very well with the wait team showing a fabulous level of knowledge on the beers and wine they were offering however it then tailed off we ordered a couple more beers and it was a good 15 mins before they appeared, they then cleared only half our plates asked if we wanted to see the pudding menu - yes please but it didn’t materialise. Ended up going inside to pay as taxi was due so we left without pudding and the dirty plates still on the table. Overall thought this wouldn’t stop us returning
