I have had some good pub food experiences on the island lately so optimistic trying Cat with No Tail for lunch. Unfortunately, it was not bad but very mediocre. We were the only ones sitting the pub area (not sure if there were guests on the other side), and that always makes a meal slightly more challenging. The meal itself... More

Every year we go to the TT and every year, we eat at this restaurant. I LOVE their gammon and with perfectly cooked (runny) eggs. Can't wait to return.

We often visit with our special needs students from the college. The staff are always very welcoming to our students with accessible facilities for our wheelchair students. The food is always decent but could be better.

Greasy and cold food. Eaten there 7 times as I lived nearby but every time it was awful. Twice we ended up leaving and ordered a takeaway from the Chinese (The Oriant ) a few doors away.

Where to start, can't believe how bad this place really is. It doesn't even deserve one star. Don't bother to even walk into this dump. If you are looking for a family friendly pub that serves food, forget it. The beer garden is dangerous with broken glass and uneven patching slabs, it a total health hazard. The play area is...

Had an excellent breakfast and evening meal during the TT races here. Good food, well presented at affordable prices. The staff were efficient and really friendly. I think it's a great pub witn nice outside area, live music and plenty of space. It does get very busy but I think that is part of a good atmosphere

This pub was very busy so had to stop taking food orders for a half hour. When the food arrived it was nice and hot and well cooked, very tasty & good beer.

Not a bad pub but TT menu is limited and to be brutally honest not of the best quality. Ok for beers but unlikely to eat here again.
