Quite a varied selection on the menu from different nationalities and a good choice of burger selection and pizza selection. I had the scotch egg for starters which was really tasty, remember to let it cool before you eat it as I burnt the inside of my mouth it was so hot! For mains I had a burger - the... More

The service just keeps getting worse. Previously had to ask for our order to be taken after 40 mins of waiting, witnessed members of staff to be sat playing on their phones at the side of the bar instead of taking our orders which resulted in a staff member asking if they were bothering to do any work whilst in...

I have been a Fat Cats customer for over 20 years. I have found the recent take over changes to be extremely disappointing. The previous menu was changed seasonally and offered a variety of meals that catered for many dietary needs (I'm veggie and gluten intolerant), there is little to nothing suitable for me now so it's no longer an...

We had breakfast here on Sat morning and it was amazing! The full english is a decent size (2 great quality sausages, hash brown, two rashers of bacon, beans, tomato and mushrooms with toast). Great price too! Would recommend.

Went with a group of friends, booked a table which wasn't available when we arrived. Food took ages to arrive, was bland & boring. Terrible service. Wouldn't recommend.

Visited yesterday with a bunch from work to enjoy a cocktail or two. Staff happy and friendly. Cocktails were really nice and service was quick. Even had a bit of banter over a beer being served in a different glass (sorry about him he doesn't get or much) bartender happy to play along with our joke on a colleague. Always... More

This is a very nice place especially on a sunday when it is half price drinks and 2 for 1 cocktails. There were a lot of students in there but it was a good atmosphere and there was good music playing in the background.Definitely worth a visit.

So when we arrived at the restaurant we were taken to our seats promptly, but, after 25 minutes of sitting with no menus we went to get them ourselves. We then had to go and ask a waitress to order some drinks. It took her fifteen minutes to walk the 20 paces to our table. We then ordered a beer... More

SWMBO and I had 2 Sunday Roasts, the Wife had lamb and I had the chicken. I was surprised to see that the meals came out in what looked like a large dishes?
