We booked Fat Cat for my husband's 40th party. The room upstairs is really nice and good value to hire. We were able to preorder drinks and food. We also took our own music and had a fun casino. On the night everything ran smoothly. There were plenty of staff on the bar and clearing glasses. The food was great... More

Ordered fish and chips, and pizza. Good food. Was pleased with student discount. Service a little slow but not really an issue.

Popped into town today and thought I would give this place a second chance for food. Recently took my mum for fish and chips to celebrate after getting the all clear from cancer and was served under cooked fish and raw chips complained then and thought the may have tightened up the kitchen staff. (Paid the full bill) was kindly... More

The food here was brilliant however the service was a little slow. I went as part of a group of about 10 people and we had preordered all of our food. The food took a long time to come out, long enough for one of the members of the group to come in, realise she'd forgotten the awards, go back... More

This place was awful! Went just before Christmas for a couple of cocktails. First drink served with no real issue & as it was 2 for 1 decided to get another. Big mistake. Literally took me almost 30 minutes of standing at the bar (not in a crowd but stood at the actual bar) before the guy served me. They... More

We turned up on time for a 3.30 reservation. We were seated in a nice booth and told menus were on their way, alas no 15 minutes later I had... More

Wasn't at all impressed with the only plant based option there was which was 'vegan' risotto.. take it or leave it gruel . Soup, carrot and coriander apparently, it wasn't tasty it was just about edible if you were really hungry, it was thick and warmish and tasted like it had been threatened by carrots at a push.. no seasoning......

Came here with my family. Mmm what can i say. We found a live wasp in the salad starter an had to argue to fact they claimed they were not sue where it had come from. Luckily we negotiated free drinks. But in fairness the waiter was understanding. All in all will not come here again. The place is filthy.... More
