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!

Firstly I think giving this a rating of poor is being generous. I came here with over 20 people for a meal and pre ordered in advance. Yet upon arrival there was no acknowledgement of this and we had to give our order again. Service overall especially taking drinks orders was extremely slow. Half an hour to place our order... More

Went here for Sunday lunch for my sisters birthday...what a shambles. Service was terrible. Wait staff were very slow in taking drinks order. Sunday roast was a dry chicken breast with incinerated potatoes. The roast pork was a over cooked pork chop. So all in all roast dinner was not what we expected. To make it worse the wait was...

Went here on a SATURDAY afternoon at around 1ish. A lot of food unavailable ie chicken wings something youd think theyd have, very slow service and main meals not the greatest. Starters were gorgeous just felt bit let down by the main and came to a lot of money for what it was. 100% recommend the camembert 👌🏼🧀

Crap service - no one seems interested in you and it's a bother that your there. Everyone looks like there working in slow motion. Cold food - everything was cold and presented awfully - slapped on a plate like no one cares. Cocktails - nothing to shout about, really disappointed. Avoid at all costs, complete shambles of a night. Will... More

I've been to fat cats many times. First time was a group of 10 of us. Food was quite good. Second time was just me and my boyfriend. I asked for a minute to choose my wine, waitress didn't come back. When I finally ordered wine asked for a large, got a small. Ordered straight chips, got curly fries. My... More
