As we were not hungry really but still needed to eat a bit we choose simple food in Catchems. Well, that is what it is, simple food really, but, it does the job, fill you up.
It's a shame that all these chain food places lack personality really, you just don't feel it's a loved place. The menu is extensive but it would be better if they had a more simple menu and better quality. The serving staff was friendly enough indeed, but, they are just employees and it feels like there is no heart and soul into it all.
If you are hungry, don't hesitate, dive in, it fills the hole and does not taste bad at all.

Once they had sorted out the mess of the food order, which they sorted very quickly the food was reasonable for the price. Grumpy serving lady : ( when we told her she got the order wrong. First rule of hospitality, the customer is ALWAYS right. And we were.

Good place to drink and the snacks are good. The bar staff are usually very friendly and it a good place to walk to from the new Castleton Park estate

We called in here with our daughter for the first time for something to eat and a drink. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating and the food very nice. The menu is pretty extensive too with plenty of variety and the sweets were delicious. The atmosphere here was also very good and unusually these days the place was pretty full. Found the ladies toilet very quirky - I'll let you see for yourself.....
