Great local ales at really great prices! Well worth a trip to sample a few beers. Bit of a sheffield institution

Went here on Sunday for lunch with a friend. We both had ploughmans. It was ok but not the best one I had ever had. We were both in agreement that there was too much cheese and not enough crackers. The salad was a bit pathetic too. I'm not sure how so many people think that by throwing a bit... More

Wonderful pub with lovely beer, food, staff and prices. What more is there to say! Would be nice to see the return of a cat on the premises.

This is probably the most famous pub in Sheffield for real ale. Set in the Kelham Island area it's a must visit for real ale enthusiasts The pub is small and the bar even smaller as only two people can stand side by side in the Tap Room Food here is good but not pretentious.

We've been here loads of times, they always have some good beer on including their own house brews Pale Rider, easy Rider and Kelham Best which we enjoyed several pints of the other night. When we've eaten there the food was good, they always have summat for vegetarians, but sometimes they run out of things. I like the décor with... More

Really love this place as a pub, & having previously had a couple of decent homemade meals here a few years back, popped in for Saturday tea due to, from memory, a good vegetarian offering. God only knows what has happened here. Ordered 2 cheese pies & a burger. Can't comment on burger, but the cheese pie had virtually no... More

Amazing little bar that works so well. You can't help but like it as you walk in. Loved the cramped bar and selection of ales. The staff were friendly and helpful informing the strength of beer 🍻 It's tidy set up with loads of pictures on the wall to set the theme. Has a cute and practical courtyard equally decorated...

It's always such a treat to visit The Fat Cat. I was there for lunch last week, and the food was excellent, and excellent value too. I mainly visit at lunchtimes these days as I no longer live in Sheffield, and there's always a nice vibe in the tap room, with people calling in to sample the various ales, sometimes... More

This is a real treat for ale lovers. 12 draught beers on offer with about another 6 on pump - not sure if there were bottles available. Pleasant service and a typical pub environment. Enjoyed basic traditional food only £5 per dish. Can't wait to go back.
