Great pit stop for lunch

Stopped here for a coffee and bit to eat on a rainy afternoon in Nottingham. Had the Mediterranean sharing platter and the two of us struggled to finish it there was some nice looking sandwiches & burgers being served. Staff were very friendly a d we will visit again.

50% for students. Love the roasted pork and also the meatball pasta. Pizzas are great too, generously topped with sun dried tomatoes, cheese and other veggies. Good selection for vegetarians too, went with my vegetarian friends, they love it :)

Popped in for a drink last night, & maybe have a meal. Decor was lovely. The atmosphere was buzzing. However, tried to buy drinks at the bar, & almost set roots down, the wait was so long. 6 staff were dashing round behind the bar, but didn't seem to be getting anywhere. 2 bar men were mixing cocktails for one...

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.
