Cat's Back Review

The Cat's Back is quite simply a gem of a pub. Refusing to sell out to developers, it stands alone surrounded by modern flats, situated just off the Putney Bridge Road and tantalizingly close to the river. My girlfriend had been hyping up The Cat's Back for a month or two so I relented to pressure and finally decided to pay it a visit. I wasn’t disappointed.

A few tables and chairs on the pavement greet you, before you enter the Pandora’s Box within The Cat’s Back. Eclectic doesn’t do the venue justice: the walls are adorned by an eccentric mixture of quite literally everything, from portraits of Elvis to Victorian pornography, and the furniture is a comfortable assortment fitting easily into the cozy pub. As darkness falls the candles come out to moodily light the premises. Punters are an unpretentious and varied lot enjoying the laid back and warm atmosphere.

If this was my local I would sleep here.

“Very attractive pub, but quite possibly the worst beer that I have ever drunk. The Youngs ran out, the Bass was stale & they had managed to pump Castlemaine XXXX through a cider pipe, which tasted really rather nasty. Sort this & they are onto a winner.”

Nicholas Rooke, Canterbury (13 years 10 days ago)

“It's my local and I think its the best pub around. The atmosphere is always electric whether there is 2 people or 50. Its one of those rare places that still exists which has that home feel where the staff and other punters add to that vibe of being somewhere safe and homely. I love it I just sometimes wish it were a little bigger.”

“A friend recommended this pub to me, he said "you will love it - it is your kind of pub!" And he was right. I went with a few friends, but by then end of the night I was sat with a group of 20 people who I had never met before. If you like to go to a pub where you can chat to everyone and make new friends, then this is the place to go.”
