Excellent! What a clever refurbishment and redecoration with some subtle restructuring.

The ambience that everyone loved is superb, but whilst everything has changed,...More

A proper pub with staff who actually care about what they do and always provide service with a smile! The best selection of booze you could ever ask for. Also…a great pork pie!

Proper backstreet local pub with an amazing array of ales and cider, 12 ale pumps at visit, 20 on gravity behind and 19 real ciders available, kept well, competitive pricing, well worth the 15 mins walk from the city centre.

A bit like a beer festival in a pub. HUGE range of beer and ciders. Almost too much choice. Buzzy atmosphere, young old well dressed and less so. A great happy mix of people. Staff helpful and cheery despite being very busy.

After a trek across town to find it, (every one knew a different way to get there, ) eventually followed a chap who was going there, the Fat Cat was warm, welcoming and well worth the walk. My wife had hot mulled cider, Cornish orchards,...More
