Established in 1930 as the Star Hotel, the Cat and Fiddle Hotel is the second last hotel to be built in Balmain, the licence being transferred from the old Star Hotel in Mort Street.

A new awning had just been erected when the photograph was taken. The name Cat and Fiddle was adopted in the mid 1970's' possibly due to the pubs association with jazz bands.
