Very good

Nice, nice place for a glass or seven, right in the heart of Kelham and just round the corner from The Nichs'.

If you've been in Sheffield for longer than a week you'd have heard of this place; it's one of the few surviving traditional boozers in the city, it's legacy is noted on the wall outside with lines indicating the depth of both the big city floods, and one was back in 1864! It's no surpirse when you get a great... More

This pub is a real pub! Full of real ales and old school decor! The feel of the place is great, and the rhubarb cider is a must! (Tastes great!!). The prices are very cheap - 2 pints of real ale, 1/2 a flavoured cider & a pint of cordial was £7! we stayed for the quiz which was great... More

This is our local, so we're there quite often. Beer selection always good. Cozy but can be cramped on a weekend. Food is very cheap but basic and often a bit over cooked. Have a pork pie and a pint tho and you should be fine!

Spent a nice half an hour in here on a very busy Saturday night. The beer we had was good - particularly the Pale Rider . It was rather cramped because it is so popular - although I noticed there is quite a bit of space outside which would make it easier in warm weather ,but not in February !... More

the Fat Cat iss a proper old fashioned pub with a great selection of real ale and at weekends is very busy with visitors from all over the country. The food is reasonable in quality and price it's not a place for cordon blue or fine wines but if you like real ale it is the place for you, along... More

This pub is brilliant. No messing, just beer and good cheap food. Don't leave without trying the pork pies from the bar, they're out of this world. Did hear that a member of my family had some bad service from one of the bar staff though.

Another example of the beer from kelham island, the fat cat has an excellent selection of local award winning beer. A place to visit if you're into good beer.

I'd visited this Sheffield institution when it first opened in the early 80's, so was hoping that it had retained it's charm. Glad to say, it is still an excellent unspoilt pub, with realky good beer, and a good atmosphere. We gad been told the food was great value so we opted for Sunday Lunch. Both the Beef & Pork...
