Cat and Fiddle Tavern
The Cat and Fiddle Tavern is Scarborough's newest and only indoor tavern, as well as our only non-smoking tavern. Home to our twice-daily wine tasting events, Cat and Fiddle is a historic play on words of the name "Katherine la Fidéle" or "Katherine the Faithful." The name refers to King Henry VIII's first wife Katherine of Aragon, who remained faithful to the King even after he divorced her for Anne Boleyn.
The Cat and Fiddle will serve craft beers as well as premium wines. Of course, all of your favorites will be served as well. Guests can order at the bar or at a window that faces the Jousting List. Comfortable tables are available around the outside of the tavern for guests who wish to smoke.
Join sailor of the seven seas Flynn Markley and explore the world of wine!
