    Rushed, unfriendly and questionable hygiene practice in light of covid (staff handing glasses to a customer via the rim), slow to get food and rushed to eat it. Dessert taken away from children before they finished as our time was up. Staff very ignorant when leaving and paying.

    The food was horrible, the scone was bland and dry, the lettuce in the salad was brown the supposed crispy chicken in the wrap was dry and brown in colour and the jacket potato tasted and looked like it had been sat in the oven for hours. But what can you do when you have two young children with you and you just want to give all the food back and leave. Plus the toilets where smelly.

    The actual café is beautiful and the cats are gorgeous. We did have a few issues though. The only time a cat came to us it was whisked away by a member of staff just as it started drinking milk. I was moving the milk so this was very sad. My 6 year old is very sensible and did not chase the cats but other children did. The staff tried hard to stop this but ultimately I think the parents need to be spoken to or over 11s only. We also had a very loud family stand over us for 10 minutes. It was horrible. We also ordered a mocktail. It was absolutely disgusting. If a 6 year old finds it too sweet - it is too sweet. Change them.

    I took my step mum as she is cat mad! we had a great time and the cats looked healthy and were very friendly.Our waitress was a real sweetheart and the food was lovely. The only thing to moan about was that the hour went very quick and I bought some pens two of which don't work !

    We were very excited to travel to Leeds to go to the kitty cafe for a birthday treat. Unfortunately the whole experience was a disappointment. We were informed we only had a 1 hour booking, but thought that the cafe must be geared up for quick service with a simple menu if that was the policy. Sadly nobody took our order for over 20 minutes (never even saw any staff to ask) and the sandwiches came in dribs and drabs with only 10 minutes left on our booking. Had to wolf the sandwiches down and then get the cakes we had ordered to take out, which also took a few times of asking to arrange. The tea my wife had ordered was really weak (not enough tea leaves in the pot) even though it had been brewing in the pot for ages while we tried to get some milk for her, the milk hadn’t been brought out with the drinks. The manager was indifferent to our queries and really seemed like he didn’t want to be there. Overall very disappointed with the whole experience. The cats cheered us up a bit, so 2 stars, otherwise it would have just been 1 star.
