The Bar at The Red Cat

The Red Cat Restaurant was a travellers inn named The Red Cat Inn dating back to the 1750s. Whilst the building has evolved over the years, the name and the tradition of serving thirst quenching beverages continues.

Our bar is stocked with a selection of fine wines, great beers and ales, cocktails and soft drinks. You are welcome to call in for a drink and relax at the bar, in our orangery or outside on our terrace.
