This is an excellent unspoiled traditional pub in The centre of Sheffield. There are two rooms and an excellent selection of local real ales at very cheap prices. A top quality pint of Kelham Island Best Bitter is £1.50 on a Monday and £2.20 otherwise! There is also an imaginative selection of German and European beers on at very good... More

I simply love the Fat Cat. It has a cute small bar. Probably the smallest in Sheffield. The place is cozy and you can sit outside. Moreover, the service is quick and great. The prices are also fair and the best of all. The Fat Cat has really a Fat Cat running around sometimes!

I love this place. This was my local for a few years. Great beer and a really unique vibe. Love the garden outside and the mix of people is always fun.

Came here for a quiz ages ago. Tried about 5 different ales, all very cheap and couldn't complain about any of them. Haven't tried the food yet though! Excellent old school pub.

As part of a Kelham Island beer trail a group of six of us called into The Fat Cat. Four were newbies to the premises & they were impressed with the atmosphere, beer garden, selection of ales and value for money. A little gem of a pub, a real quality retro pub. You've gotta try the 'Pale Rider' ale, it's... More

Wonderful garden and quirky pub near to Kelham Museum and brewery. Not eaten here but understand they have a curry night and quizzes also. Once you get in you won't want to get out :)

Managed to find this little gem of a pub and found it to be perfect.Two visits now and definately more to come.Tried the Timothy Taylors and the Kelham island best, really enjoyed them both and also tried the aubergine and red wine pie from the small but adequate menu and found it surprisingly tasty and refreshing.I can't wait to see...

Went on a works event for BIFM and love a good cask ale. The drink was crisp and full of flavour. The food was more than even I could eat and that's saying something. The tour was so interesting too. Staff were typically Sheffield blokes and up for banter. Long live the fat cat
