    Loved the decor and the amount of cats that where around. The food was really nice with plenty of options. And the staff were very pleasant.

    Party of three. Two were happy with their food. 90 year old friend was very disappointed with her gigantic doorstep sandwich. We all agreed that she should have been advised of the unusual thickness of the bread when she ordered a sandwich as it was totally unsuitable for her. We would have found it awkward to eat too. I had to ask for a knife to cut up the sandwich.
    The waitress appeared to be rather dopey and very distracted when taking our order. We waited ages for our food to arrive and then the orders all arrived separately, each with a very long wait before the next arrived. As one of the orders was hot, we could not wait to all eat together. The waitress apologised for the ridiculously long wait, both while we were initially waiting and also for the delay between each order arriving, saying that tables were not normally served in this manner.
    I would not recommend taking anyone to the kitty cafe who is not fully able to look after themselves as each individual needs to guard their food from the cats. It was very stressful looking after two very elderly ladies, one with dementia and trying to eat, without the cats stealing someone's food. I would recommend having just a drink, rather than trying to eat for a more relaxed and enjoyable experience.
    The net food covers could only be used once you had finished eating. We had kittens climbing on top of our cover, trying to get at the food underneath. It would have helped if a waitress had cleared our plates away. We had to stack them up under the cover.
    The staff would benefit from having more knowledge of the food and drinks sold. When I asked if the dandelion and burdock had artificial sweeteners in it, it became an ordeal to get a straight answer. I first wondered if the waitress did not speak English very well because communication was very laboured and frustrating.
    Although she was not a very good waitress, the girl was quite knowledgeable and animated when it came to talking about the cats.

    Me and my husband went there on Sunday and we loved it, it was nice to see that all the furry ones looked healthy and happy and I'm so glad that the ladies priority was the wellbeing of the cats, the staff was lovely and very welcoming, we had paninis, a drink and a cake and it was all very nice. I have already recommended it to a few friends and will definitely go again, the only downfall is that I wanted to bring all the furry cuties home with me but I don't think that would go well with my furry lady of the house. Thank you very much for a wonderful experience. Please keep up the very hard and wonderful work.
