After visiting Fat Cats at various times over the last year or so, a place i never really went before, i felt it was a lovely place but the wait on food was ridiculous, sometimes having to wait over an hour if not longer, which i felt was a big let down for quite a nice restaurant/bar in the city...

Visited fatcats nottingham with friends for my boyfriends birthday. We all had three courses and many rounds of drinks. On a Friday night there were two staff serving one who claimed to be the manger. We were waiting for them to ask us if we needed more drinks which they didn't so I went to the bar ordered a round...

Went here and loved the amazing food on offer for cheap prices with a great student offer. However the awful and slow service meant I was there for 2 hours for 2 courses. Which meant the overall good trip became a poor trip.

I've been before for ladies night, 2 courses and a cocktail for £11.95 and really enjoyed it. However we had the choice of starters and mains, really nothing tempting apart from the calamari on the starters, which 4 out of 6 of us ordered only to be told they had not ordered enough. Ended up with goats cheese which was... More

I visited the fat cat on my hen weekend we had breakfast one day and also had a few drinks in the evening. It is lively in the evening with reasonably priced drinks. Comfortable seating and a Dj in the evenings. The only thing I noticed that was not good was that the seating was very stained and tatty. The... More

Good atmosphere for a drink, although not as good as it's neighbour. Menu looks good but the food is terrible. Driest burgers I have ever tasted. Have a drink and then move on to somewhere else to eat. There are far better places.

Visited fat cats to have a few drinks and a little bite to eat on sat 27/7/14. The food was good value for money and the cocktails were great. The only bad point was the slow service we had to wait for 45 minutes for the food and around 15 minutes for the drinks. Will return though as I like... More

Ate here this week as an after graduation meal and was literally over the moon with the food and service we received. The food was gorgeous and would have happily paid full price but made even better with 50% student offer (something I will miss a lot once my card expires in September!). Great selection of drinks too, especially cocktails.... More

Not too impressed. I'd like to specifically mention the man with a beard and glasses behind the bar as he seemed to have no idea how to actually serve people in the correct order, similar review of the DM. Awful, Awful service!

Fat Cat has brilliant offers for students. 50% off food and 20% off drink I think is very generous! The meals are good quality and there is plenty of it on the plate. On a Sunday it is 50% off food for everyone so not just students. There is one fault with Fat Cat and that is the service, the... More
