Cat & Custard Pot
‘The Cat’ is a charming english country pub with bedrooms. Situated in the Cotswold village of Shipton Moyne, a stone’s throw from Tetbury and Malmesbury. Country pub dining at its best with a range of quality wines.
The South Cotswolds holds many attractions and events and the Cat is superbly situated to be able to enjoy many of these. Both the historic towns of Tetbury and Malmesbury are within a stone’s throw of us.
A three-mile radius encompasses Westonbirt Arboretum and Westonbirt school, Highgrove gardens, and the Beaufort polo club. Badminton and Gatcombe horse trials are both within easy reach. We are 24 miles from the Roman spa town of Bath and from the city of Bristol, both with their many attractions. Cheltenham races are 34 miles from the Cat.
Apart from these attractions, we are in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with many wonderful walks direct from our front door. We welcome well-behaved dogs.
The heart and soul of the Cat is the traditional bar, serving all forms of beer from Cask to Keg, Bottle and Can. We offer a diverse range of beers, wines and spirits often featuring new guest beers, exotic, lesser known wines and non-mainstream branded spirits.
Our chef’s mission is to serve delicious pub food at reasonable prices. Our ingredients are fresh and largely sourced from local suppliers. Our menu changes with the seasons and availability of quality produce. Here is a sample menu, but if you would like to know details of the menu on the day, please get in touch with us directly. For Sunday lunch we serve a traditional roast, with roast potatoes, fresh vegetables and gravy.
Shipton Moyne is a quiet village with only a small country road running through it, hence there is little to disturb your rest. Our five en-suite bedrooms are newly refurbished and charmingly decorated. Crisp cotton sheets, goose down duvets, fluffy white towels, comfy beds, power showers, deep baths and endless amounts of steaming hot water are there to help you relax. Each room is equipped with unlimited WiFi, TV, hair dryer. Each morning we can serve you a full English breakfast with a selection of coffees and teas.
