The Cat and Fiddle, a country pub in Christchurch

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you. 

Located in Hinton Admiral, The Cat & Fiddle is over 400 years old and is said to be one of the oldest pubs in England. Having been a hospice run by the monks of Christchurch Priory in the 11th Century, to then being the meeting place of smugglers and highwaymen in the 19th Century, The Cat & Fiddle has a wealth of history.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
