Have to say this is a superb pub, offer lovely food and a fantastic range of local beers to accompany the food. If the weathers good the beer garden is great.

This is a cracking little pub - quirky, old fashioned but really cosy. They have half a dozen mainly local beers and they clearly know how to look after it. Top it off with friendly staff and you could easily spend hours in this place.

Stopped into Sheffield to meet up with friends so we headed to the Fat Cat for lunch and a few refreshments. This is a classic big city pub with good food and a great selection of real ales.
