Came here for a roast on Sunday - unfortunately they lost our order and we had to wait over an hour for food! However they did give us a free drink each and dessert to apologise! Food and drinks were tasty Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2018-04-15

the food was delicious but the service quite bad...when we told the waitress our coffee was too cold, she said she wasn't a magician, there is nothing she could do about it because she happened to just have made them...and if we weren't happy there was a coffee shop across the road; How rude! she removed the coffees from the bill. Also, wine by the glass, although the list is extensive, their price is very expensive. not sure if it's worth coming back. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2018-04-15

Not a brilliant experience unfortunately. Sunday roasts came out with 1 roast potato for 4 people. Staff fine when asked for more though. Yorkshire puddings over cooked, no cauliflower cheese on menu meat over cooked. Expensive for all of these parts to not be right. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2018-04-15

Ran out of vegetarian options by 5pm. Small portions. Overpriced. The food we could get was very good quality for a pub, but its still a pub that ran out of food and charges far too much. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2018-04-08

Mine and my other half's meal was really cold when it arrived. We felt as we were a small table, we were not valued. The flavours of the meal would have been nice, but the temperature ruined it slightly. I asked for mine to be microwaved, which meant everything was a bit soggy but at least it was warm. My other half has the beef, which he said was nice, and he ate it cold as he didn't want it to be microwaved. Understandably. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2018-04-01

Used to be treat for a roast on Sunday but we got there to find that there was no veggie options left at all. The roasts we had were not great and the ambience as awful. Had th se two guys playing records badly and it was just too loud. Used to be a good place to go for a chilled roast and a catch up on a Sunday but won’t go back now. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2018-02-18

Reply from The Owl and Pussycat

Thank you for your feedback, we do try to cater for everybody and unfortunately we were a lot busier for veggie roasts earlier than antisipated. We will be working on this going forward

Roast portion size a little on the generous side but tasted yummy. The veg pie was great! The desert menu is very limited (2 choices) had to go elsewhere. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2018-02-11

Reply from The Owl and Pussycat

Sorry to hear about the lack of desert choices we had available for you. You will be pleased to hear we are launching a new menu next week that has lot's of classic puddings on :) So do come again soon and check them out!

Good place (we sat upstairs, which seemed a bit better for a meal), and a really delicious Sunday roast. Staff were a bit at sea at times with our orders, but nice-enough people and it didn't spoilt anything. We would go back. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2017-10-08

We visited The Owl and Pussycat for lunch on Sunday 6th August having made a booking previously by phone. When I booked I asked if a children's menu was on offer and I was told that there wasn't but that the roast dinners can be made as child portions. The pub was less than half full when we arrived and were told our table was upstairs. The table was great but it was a while before anyone approached us to take our order. When we made our order we asked about child portions of the Sunday roast and we were told that's not possible. I said I'd been told on the phone that this was possible and she went to check. We were then told it was. We were not asked if we wanted drinks and had to ask separately for these. When the food came it was mostly good, the gravy in particular was very tasty, as were the Yorkshire puddings (which is why I have rated our visit 1 star). However the roast beef was quite grissly, and my nephew's beef was very dry and tough - he couldn't chew it. The amount of vegetables we were given was disappointing, given that we were paying £16 each for a roast dinner. My sister's roast potatoes were basically solid and difficult to cut through! We were also surprised that Yorkshire puddings and gravy came as part of the meal as this was implied on the menu as having to pay for as an extra. When we asked about this we were not told they were part of the meal. Therefore we had to cancel our order of extras. All in all it wasn't a very successful lunch at the Owl and Pussycat, which was really dissappointing as I had heard good things about it, hence booking for my sister and family's visit to Shoreditch. If we hadn't had 2 very hungry and tired children with us we probably wouldve gone somewhere else. Visited The Owl and Pussycat on 2017-08-06

Lovely pub with an equally lovely atmosphere. Totally Shoreditch, this place is nicely quirky, rather rustic and suitably priced. Expect lovely old exposed beams, low ceilings, uneven walls and odd nooks and crannies. With it's own beer garden (for if you like the outdoors) and a great selection of beers. A really lovely place to have a relaxing pint, I just adore this old building and that they have left this in it's natural state. Although beware, it can get busy after work hours and on weekends in the evening. I haven't tried the food, so can't comment on this!

Really always rate this pub when I head over to Shoreditch. Beer garden can always get a bit tight in summer because it is a bit small, but really enjoy a drink there anyway as the review below says, it doesn't seem to get wild with Shoreditch idiots

Really honest and humble boozer that doesn't seem to have been too touched by the Shoreditch scuttle happening now! Fun little beer garden and just a nice place to hang after a day at work. Top trumps!
