Title says it all really, we had never visited this pub before but saw a sign that said the Bullitt Guerilla BBQ was going to be there over the last bank holiday and as we love Bullitts Burgers we decided to visit. The place was buzzing, great music, great beer, great atmosphere and to top it all great food from... More

What can you say about the Fat Cat other than it is the best real ale pub in the country, and they've got awards to prove it. Never had an 'off' beer there. I'd like to know how they do it with such a vast range when pubs with only 2 or 3 ales can't seem to keep them in... More

This pub really has something for everyone, with a huge range of Ales, foreign beers, ciders and perry. Definitely worth a visit if you want to try some interesting local beers. Lovely friendly staff and frequented by good clientèle.

This pub really is deserving of the 5* rating! When we got delivered by taxi, mid week, there were 38 beers and 20 perries and ciders to try... Craft beers, bottled beers and beers coming out of your ears! Very popular pub, even on a Wednesday night. Students seem to enjoy the place too. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Hand pulled,... More

This is one of their 3 establishments in the Norwich area.Pubs like this are few and sadly far between,some of the beers are brewed on the premises and the rest are from other good micro producers. All in exceptional condition and I'm seriously considering moving to Norwich. Visit Norwich just to see Heaven on earth.

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'.
