Yeovil itself is a bustling market town of around 50,000 people and has a fantastic historical charm and a variety of great public transport links. North Cadbury is a quaint and traditional village to the North East of Yeovil and boasts an affluent and well-heeled residential population.

Pub Layout

The Catash sits in its own grounds with everything you could wish for from a perfect village community pub. The front door is located on the street available for passing foot-trade to gain access directly to the main bar. The second access point is through a rear door from the main car park used primarily for visitors to the area from outside of the village. As you walk in, the traditional well-kept interior oozes charm and a real home from home feel.

The pub is perfectly zoned to enable customers to enjoy their visit no matter what the occasion. A quiet drink with friends, out for a nice traditional pub lunch or a pub game or two, the pub hosts a cosy side snug, main bar area and a well-designed and laid out dining area. All of these zones are easily adaptable to enable the building to accommodate various social and community events, occasions an private functions.  The sociable central bar servery links the two ends of the pub impressively and acts as the hub of the pub, as well as the hub of the village.

Externally there is parking for around 20 cars and some patio areas however the show stopper is the beautiful and extensive gardens which surround the well kept buildings. These are well known locally and act as a huge draw in the summer, perfect for socialising from Spring through to Autumn acting as a magnet for day-trippers, tourists and local families with plenty of traditional pub benches and brollies. Another welcome addition to the site is the very popular Skittle alley that hosts local teams most nights of the week and can be hired out for various other events and functions. There are also three popular letting rooms which are all a good size and all complete with their own with en-suite bathrooms.
