Lovely location and quirky atmosphere, bizarre service

I visited this restaurant/pub with my family and thought it looked lovely. My cousin has lived in the vicinity for some while but thought that it would be a great place to visit when all her family were together. We were a group of five, from many places around the globe.

Menu was given to us as soon as we sat down. Waitress took drink order shortly afterwards.However its been a long time before drinks arrived. And they were not coctails. Simply... More

The food and cocktails are amazing with the meal leaving you full. My personal tip is to order Mexican pizza which is so scrummy. However the service lets the whole experience down, we were told it was going to be an hour which we were happy to wait. Although, the staff were extremely neglectful and were more interested in clocking... More

Fat cats has 50% off for students which meant the bill was more than pleasing. The starters were lovely. The burgers were a little disappointing -the meat ones were very tough and quite dry whilst the falafel burger lacked any taste. All other food was well received though. The cocktails were extremely tasty and well made. And 2-4-1 made them... More

Second time i have been here now. the first time i thought that it was just a one off, but upon returning it is now apparent that they are indeed very bad. to begin with, the waitress who served us was very dirty, her clothes had numerous stains on them, how is a customer supposed to feel happy...

We decided to hold a work colleague baby shower here on a Sunday as there's 50% off. The food was amazing and big portions, the only down side was we had to pre order as it was a group of 19 but we decided to order loads of sharer dish which I can't recommend enough. There was a problem with... More

After looking at their website & reading they have a Ladies Night every Thursday from 6pm with a 2 course meal & cocktail for £9.95, me & a friend decided to give it a go. We arrived at 7pm & even though it wasn't too busy it took 15 minutes for us to be served at the bar. We then... More

Been here quite a few times on a Sunday. Despite the service, we kept trying to come back because we really enjoyed the food and with 50% off it's an absolute bargain. However, enough is enough and you will definitely not be seeing us anymore. The staff are constantly rude and inattentive, after so many months they still haven't learned... More

This is the last time I go here, service was poor, repeat requests for items, and no drinks or deserts offered after main meal came down. Majority of us were students but we're told 1, our uni id shouldn't.be accepted. And 2, not everyone got the discount to which we were told nothing could be done about it. Obviously there... More
