About the Cat and Fiddle

The Cat and Fiddle Inn is doubly famous, both as the second highest inn in England, and by giving its name to the A537, the Cat and Fiddle pass over the hills that separate the Peak District’s  “Derbyshire Dales” from Staffordshire and the Cheshire Plain to the west.

The Cat and Fiddle’s location offers panoramic views as far as the hills of Wales, making a popular stopping point at weekends and during the long summer evenings.

In addition to A537, the Cat and Fiddle is at the hub of several ancient tracks over the hills, and has become a popular refreshment stop for walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers, and the motorcyclists who come to enjoy the twisting circuit from Buxton to Macclesfield and returning along the A54 from Bosley. The Cat caters for people in outdoor clothing and footwear in the snug Moorland bar, and has a separate lounge bar and restaurant for families and group parties.

On several dates throughout the year visitors can enjoy helicopter flights from the Cat and Fiddle.  The flights are often booked as birthday gifts, and many families arrange to meet here for a celebration meal in our dining room. See Activities
