Visiting relatives who live locally. We visited in a party of 7 incl kids. They suggested the Fat Cat. We went with kids who enjoy the colouring in kit , crayons etc. Good bits : lots of space, warm. Service was quick, at 6pm on a Saturday for our walk up appointment. Some food good, some far from it..see below.... More

I came in for some food with my house mates to take advantage of the 50% offer for students. Also the 2-4-1 cocktails always go down a treat!! Would defiantly recommend to anyone not just students !

After visiting a different Fat Cat a while ago, this is my first meal at this Fat Cat. Mushroom risotto an absolute must! Staff all very friendly and prices reasonable. Will be returning!
