After waiting to be seated for 5 minutes, with no service from staff, we decided to find a suitable table our selves. Majority of the staff were stood around talking and our waitress in particular was incredibly rude, and clearly did not want to be there. Definitely will not be going to Fat Cat again.

We had a party of 31 and fat cats couldn't have done more for us. Excellent fresh food. The atmosphere was lively and friendly. Service was excellent and there wasn't one complaint from the group. We've all decided to visit again. All that and it was half price on Sunday fantastic

Great food and drink. Really good offers for students. Only negative thing I can say is the service is very slow. We were waiting a while to be served and we waited even longer to pay the bill but apart from that the food was great

On first impressions was pleased with the refurb, (since last time I went) the staff were also very polite and professional. We ordered our food - two original burgers, which took ages to arrive.

Attractive restaurant with appalling service. I had ordered a jacket potato with bacon and beans and they left out the bacon. There was very little cheese and no butter. I wll not go there again.
