The Pub was busy from the opening of the doors. Great selection of ales and pricing was reasonable. Had wifi so I could work there for a couple of hours. The filled rolls seemed to be a favorite with the pub. Clientele was as far removed as you could get from a Witherspoons! Would be happy to return

Even as a non-drinker the atmosphere in this place is nice. Recommend for anyone looking for a 'proper pub'.

The Fat Cat is by far the best pub in Norwich and the staff are fantastic for helping you to choose the right beer. Come here and try out a few!

We were recommended this pub by and accompanied here by my wife's friend. Fortunately this twice CAMRA national pub of the year is on her doorstep and she can enjoy its charms as a neighbourhood meeting place.

Awesome pub and quite cheap. Remember to ask for half pints if you want a chance to try a few different ales
