Great choice in ales.

This pub is well known for the many different types of ale they have and have had in the past. The ales here are great and would defiantly visit again for the drinks. The pub only serves pies and pasties which is also very good. Very typical English pub worth visiting.

Sheffield may be the best pub crawling city in the world. It's more compact than London with almost as much choice, lower prices, and more genuine smiles. if you can't find a pub you like in Sheffield, stop drinking. The Fat Cat was one of the pubs that set Sheffield on the road to greatness. Good pub grub and a... More

I am a regular visitor to the Fat Cat be it at dinner time for a pie and a pint or in the evening for a drinking sesh. I've never been let down. The selection of real ales is good and ever changing but the regulars always show up such as the excellent Pale Rider. When eating I usually opt... More

Within a few hours of arriving in Sheffield, I was eager to visit my favourite pub, and sample my favourite beer, Pale Ryder. I was hungry too, so I ordered the Sunday roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast spuds, two veg and gravy. The generous portion really hit the spot. Unbelievably good value at £5.25. I keep going back. Well done,... More

Quality old school pub, great ales and no nonsense bar snacks. Never had and never will munch a pickled egg me, but you gotta respect a joint that still offers them.

The cost of good quality beer is excellent with a wide choice available. It's like going back in time, both in the style of the place and the price of beer. Clean and tidy with friendly service at the bar. I would recommend this pub

We were out with Family and decided to stop for some refreshments. The place itself was very nice and had a good atmosphere, but the service and grubby cups and saucers were a disappointment, I think they were very short staffed!

I have been going here since 1982 and it has hardly changed in all this time. If you're looking for plush surroundings and gimmicks then this pub is not for you. If you're looking for a traditional pub selling top class real ales , lagers and ciders along with great food at good prices and a warm welcome then head... More
