About the Pub

Micropub just outside the town centre in a former shop. Named after the owner's cat which died exactly four years before the pub's opening date of 4th November 2014. The high-ceilinged room retains its original beams. High tables, bench seats and stools provide the seating, and hops adorn the two front bay windows. There is a temperature-controlled cellar room, the Beer Tent, from which beers and cider are dispensed by gravity. There is always a pale/light ale, a copper type ale and a stronger one, as well as local ciders, including fruit-flavoured ones. Wines, champagne, Prosecco, soft drinks, tea, coffee and pub snacks are also offered. There are some lined beer glasses.
