Love the Cat and Fiddle - lovely to have a local British pub near by and a great Beef roast lunch. And the fish and chips is gluten free and delicious

After 50 years gluten-free, it was a real treat to have fish and chips with a cold cider. They were sensational, as was our server, Lizzie. Highly recommended.

Sheer delight. This new incarnation of the historic Cat & The Fiddle is a lovely experience on every level. The charming, cozy pub atmosphere makes for a comfortable yet festive vibe, and the service is very friendly and attentive. And the food! So flavorful and hearty! The beer-battered fish was tender and moist, the pot pies were treasures of homemade goodness, and the soup was seasoned to perfection. Can't wait to return to try more dishes.

The food was bad. I ordered a chicken curry pie. And I literally got a chicken stew/soup. It was in NO way a curry. And there was a rat on the patio. Disappointing.

I don't understand how a British pub doesn't stock salad cream. HP sauce check. No salad cream and some of the staff were so confused when being asked for it a pile of sour cream came out. Literally why. I get probably only a few Brits will ask for it but even if you don't make her own that stuff is bomb proof on a shelf and you could cheaply order a case for way less than the measly $6 it cost full retail at world market. Come ON literally how else do you eat scotch eggs. And if you are gonna spend for the rabbit food under a scotch egg just put that sauce at the side. Other British pubs in LA do.... OH and that was the smallest sausage roll I've ever seen and I'm not sure it is even a full sized British sausage. I did not find it to be value for money, two at that size would be.
That being said I had a cracking time and the scotch eggs tasty and the Shepherd's Pie flatbread was gorgeous.
Also I went bc it's a British pub so maybe give people equal opportunity to tout that.

These guys really know what they are doing, and really know how to host!

There’s no where else like it in LA.

Family run business of exceptional quality. We went for Father’s Day, the owner welcoming everybody, making people- including our two young children- feel really comfortable. Our server was equally wonderful and talented with children. Food to please everyone, and I mean everyone. From Vegans to carnivores to toddlers. Our girls loved coming here and said we should go there lots of times, I agree.
We hadn’t been since our wedding day at the old location, and we will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely afternoon!

There should be one of those places that you love to go to on a regular basis. Even though the food is good and well prepared, it does not seem to overcome its problems. The prices are a little too high, the management is not customer focused, and overall a lackluster experience each time I go.

Hi MommothLover, Thank you for your review! Did you have a particular experience while you were there? There is almost always a member of the family there as management because we do care about our guests and try to be as accommodating as possible. Hence responding to this review! Would love to hear more about your experience if you would be willing to share. You can also call us or email to explain more and please direct to me. Cheers, Ashlee

We found this old style English Pub by accident. Our Daughter had just been given a job at the Elementary School down the street and we needed to have dinner after she showed us the school. I did my serch on OpenTable and this wonderful spot came up. The Waitress was such an outstanding welcoming factor. I am a fan of Guinness and after it was on the Happy Hour menu, they had me sold. The food is excellent and you put this on top of the Pub atmosphere, you have the makings of a Pub Home Away from Home!!!! Thank you Cat and Fiddle for making our time at your Restaurant so unexpectedly wonderful!!!!

The Cat and Fiddle re-incarnated in its new location rocks. Food and service is great ( we both had the Shepherds Pie) and the bar offers a generous pour. The are is burgeoning and re-inventing itself. Had to have you back. Will definitely return when I feel the pull of experiencing the feel of an English pub with terrific Shepherds Pie.

We hadn't visited The Cat and Fiddle in their newer location on Highland Ave, and were pleasantly surprised. I had been in the space when it was another restaurant, and am so pleased how The Cat and Fiddle works in this space. Their Cat Cider is delicious, food was very tasty, service was very thoughtful, yet comfortable. A great place to meet friends. We'll be back!

Full disclosure—this is my neighborhood pub & I love it. I’m here at least 4 times a month. This dinner was suggested by friends whom I’d brought to the Cat & Fiddle last year for a reunion of sorts. They’ve raved about it ever since & our schedules finally aligned again to meet for dinner. I’m now planning to host my birthday party here as well. The chips are delicious and the service is always friendly and efficient. I’ve tried almost every pescatarian/vegetarian dish on the menu. Love the fish & chips and the quinoa burger. Fabulous selection of wine, beer and spirits. Check them out for Happy Hour!

I love The Cat and Fiddle. I used to go to their old location on Sunset all the time and was super-bummed when it closed. I was all the more delighted when I found out they re-opened at a new excellent location. This is a great family restaurant and I feel super-welcome when I go there. I love the food and as a beer connoisseur I appreciate the opportunity to have a good English Ale.

So as an Ex Pat we love this place, was a regular for years at the old venue on Sunset - whilst the inside was a little dated and bland the outside patio was a great meeting place. Was disappointed when it closed. Found the new location several months ago and been a frequent customer ever since. It’s a regular stop off on the way home to get a pint and a chat. The new bar and food area is fantastic as is the court side, whilst not like the old it’s cozy and comfortable.

Eaten here several times, food is good comfort food at a fair price, I will admit to wishing it would shine a little more, they could shine if they just paid attention a little more to the British heritage but that’s just me I guess.

One of my little fav stopping places - English Breakfast and Fish & Chips always please.
