English pub with English grub. Visited for tea with my Husband and Son. It was very busy but we managed to get a table. The chicken curry is lovely, the chicken felt like it had been slow cooked. Definitely recommend. The cheesecake was the best I've ever tasted, peanut butter flavour. The staff were also lovely. We will return!

I visited Fat Cats a couple of times whilst in Albufeira, as I was staying above it. Great English breakfast and £1.80 a pint what is there to not like?

Very bad service. Because of using my computer, I was asked to leave five minutes after finishing my lunch if I don't order more. And there were a lot of free tables. She literally said "You can't sit here with your computer *all day*". So I spent about 30 minutes at Fat Cat's and I definitely did not feel welcome.

Ate here last week, I tried the chicken with 'home made' piri piri. The chichen was flattened and completely overcooked likening it to carboard with no flavour whatsoever. The accompanying salad and baked potato were reasonably edible but I had to leave most of the chicken. This place is not cheap, less than average pub grub and over inflated prices... More
