Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was not as good as advertised. Cats were grumpy and tried to swipe our boy . For the price you pay and have to book in advance, go to an ordinary cafe. Overhyped. Grumpy cats who don't mind trying to swipe children.

Have visited before and feel this time it wasn’t the lovely experience we had last time. Building has deteriorated, were short staffed, took ages to take our order, order was wrong, food was average and there was a lack of cats! felt rushed. The toilet...was cold and damp with a wet floor, could do with an overall refresh.More

Great food cats are a little timid in afternoon but they are still social. They have plenty of places to play and sleep. It is great to see that the cats have places to hide should they want to get away from it all.

Best cat café we've ever been to!! After finding ourselves stranded in Nottingham from taking the wrong train, we found out we were 2 mins from the cat cafe from our hotel and it was our saving grace! All the cats were so friendly and...the staff are so welcoming and answered my questions about the merchandise. The food was AMAZING and the entry fee was completely affordable. We definitely had a memorable experience, thank you very much 🥰🥰🥰More

A fun idea and certainly different. It gets very busy and is very commercial. There is a charge straight away and you are time limited. The food is neither worse nor better than any cafe. The cats are well treated when not chased by eager...little hands. Go as an experience but dont expect too much.More

Nice, calm place with cats! There was a good atmosphere, people of all ages and nice merchandise. Entrance is 7 pounds for an adult though, but the cats are great!

Great place to be and lovely cats too. I would definitely come here again, but I don't think my kitten is going to like me much when I get home 😄

We love coming here. So many fussy cats and a lovely hot chocolate. One little cat decided to jump up and steal the cream on our hot chocolate

On paper this looks a great experience. In reality, in my opinion, not so much. On entering I confirmed my reservation, my 7 year old and friend (who requires a hip replacement sat down due to pain) I was asked that we all read the...conditions and sign. I walked over we all read, I went over and was asked to pay the welfare charge, I said I’d grab my phone and come back and pay, on returning the manager, Jude, reminded me I hadn’t paid the welfare charge, and put the card machine directly under my nose to pay. Put me off as I’d expect to pay this with the bill. Fast forward to ordering food, after 20 minutes I checked whether we order at the till or if someone would come and take our order, we ordered and paid at the table, during this time we noticed everyone of the cats apart from Jonny, flinched when anyone went to pet them, they would scarper through a hole or up high. Clearly overwhelmed with the amount of people present/petting them. The food came out fairly fast- within 15 minutes. Tasted wonderful, really tasty, however we were reminded that we had 10 minutes left of our reservation- this prompted my daughter to ‘be full’ and not finish her pizza as she a- wanted to see more of the cats (she’d only seen 6 none of which she was able to stroke) and b- really wanted cake as I had promised her as a treat. When we asked we were told you don’t have enough time left of your reservation. Whilst I appreciate this is a business, it took 20 minutes for our food order to be taken, and the rushed/reminded as they required the table. The staff weren’t rude at all but this was a gift for Xmas to my daughter, she got the cake but we were reminded twice we only had 10 minutes to eat it and vacate. That didn’t sit well with me at all. An hour reservation is fine for coffee/cake A 90 minute reservation would be more suitable for a meal especially when it takes 20 minutes for an order to be taken, food cooked/prepared and then eaten. The whole experience would’ve been a lot better if we had been given the opetion of a 90 minute reservation rather than being reminded rushed out of our seats. I must point out that I also do worry for the welfare of the cats, not physically- they all look well cared for but they were clearly overwhelmed/anxious/ nervous of the high number of people in the cafeMore
