We stopped in because we were in the neighborhood to try out some of their ales. We had a taste of a couple before deciding what was right for each of us. It is very cosy and friendly and we would definitely stop in again...More

Fat Cat serves Kelham Island brewery beers along with other craft and real ales. Food is cheap and cheerful and there's always a nice welcome. Recommended.

The Fat Cat is my favourite Kelham Island pub. It's cheap, friendly and has lots of space both inside and out. The ales are very well kept, and there's always a superb range to choose from, with some made just minutes from the pub.

Good beer. Pleasant friendly service in a slightly jaded setting. But as the place seems to get packed out I don't suppose the owners feel the need to update things.

This is just a fantastic boozer. Great ales, friendly service and good atmosphere. A must for any visit to Sheffield. The food is cheap and just about cheerful. You can fill yourself up here but it's pretty basic.

Just after the dreadful Kelham Island Museum. So a decent pint was most welcome. Grumpy student barman less so! Furniture and carpet tatty and dirty. Awful microwaved pie and potatoes. Grotty surroundings. However was the best bit of Sheffield!

Spit and sawdust sort of pub, with lots of interesting sounding ale, worth a visit for this alone. Fascinating part of Sheffield, steeped in industrial history.
