    Myself and daughter visited as a birthday treat, we both enjoyed ourselves the food was lovely esspecially the chocolate mint cake and orieo cheese cake. We loved seeing the cats and watching them climb the various apparatus that are provided for them. We will be booking another visit soon!

    The staff is really friendly and I love their uniforms super cute. The food was really really good as well. All the kitties looked well looked after but they seemed a bit spooked by the children so they weren't that friendly unfortunately. The interior is very nice and colourful and the place is very clean which I was very surprised about because one of my biggest worries was food+kitties might not be a good match but as I said the place was impeccable. There is an entry fee of 6 pounds for an adult but it makes sense because they are a cat rescue as well as a cafe so I dont mind paying that and the food prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get and the quality of it. Will definitely be coming back had a really good time there!

    We arrived late (had phoned prior to explain) and they were very accommodating to this. Friendly staff and immediately greeted by cats. The menu is really good. Great selection. Great deserts. And really good pricing. Would definitely come again.

    It was such a fun experience at the Kitty Cafe. There’s a great variety and number of cats to observe and interact with. The menu is full of different food and drink options and it was all really tasty. The staff were chatty and informed us on the cats and there rescue situation. It’s nice that the cafe allows cats in a sanctuary situation to socialise and to eventually be re-homed where appropriate. Even though the entry fee makes the visit a little more expensive, it is worth it for the upkeep of the cats.

    Fantastic Caffè, As a first time customer recieved amazing service. Promptly greeted and sat down. Food and drink served without delay! Really friendly environment. As a side note Toffee is the cutest cat I've ever seen!

    We loved the cafe and the cats and the way everything was set up. We found the menu expensive for what we got. I had a vegan panini and was really disappointed with it. Very dry with dry vegetables and very spicy peppers in it - it would be much more appetizing and tasty with something like humous. It felt like the vegan options haven't really been thought about. I would have had vegan pizza, but again no cheese. Its so easy to get vegan cheese these days. If I come again I would only have a drink due to this.

    My son and I really enjoyed visiting the Kitty Cafe and meeting all the feline inhabitants. The decor and many places the cats could climb made it a really unique experience. Constructive feedback for improvements would be that I'd prefer to pay for my food and welfare charges all in one go rather than have to pay the welfare charge on arrival then have a separate transaction for food. I also found eating quite tricky on the sofas with low tables at coffee table height, but it didn't detract from the experience and I would visit again.

    Ordered the afternoon tea for 2 was absolutely lovely! Was great to see all the cats again. Come to the kitty café everytime I come to Nottingham and love it everytime. Haven’t got a bad word to say about the place, staff are lovely and helpful to and are there to let you know all the names of the cats and facts about them.

    Absolutely fine. Always love coming to this place for the cats. Only negative is that i know they've recently revamped the menu. But for myself (vegan), it's still not very good. The vegan options are very boring and bland and for what they are, are really expensive considering that no vegan substitutes have been used (i.e. cheese, mayo, meat, etc).

    Excellent afternoon tea at the Kitty Cafe in Nottingham, very friendly staff, sofas well spaced out for social distancing. Cats were lovely and friendly, very well looked after.
