First look at work to transform famous Cat and Fiddle Peak District pub

The fundraising bid to refurbish the famous Cat & Fiddle Inn has surpassed its £50,000 target, by raising £54,548 in only 42 days.

The work is just beginning as new owners, Karl and Lindsay, reveal they are currently at ‘ground-zero’ with the basics of the relaunch in its infancy. They can’t wait to ‘pour everyone a drink’ when it is finished.

The Cat and Fiddle Inn is located on the A537 between Buxton and Macclesfield.
