“Poor service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Food is very good, but the service was pretty poor in the drinks department. And we were waiting for 20minutes for our food order, the food also took 40 minutes, and I was left thinking we should ditch the idea and go to the McDonald's down the road

“pickled onions when you order caremalised onions.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Having enjoyed the food at fat cats before I recommended that some friends and I went there for lunch. We ordered the balsamic caremalised onion and camenber sandwhich. sounded lovely, when it arrived it had sliced pickled white onions with the melted cheese..we had open minds and gave it a go...however it tasted awful, They were good at swapping this for us and the waitress was friendly and helpful, just a bit of a shame the kitchen staff tried to fob us off with something that didnt even taste nice. Also when ordering a drink remember to say 'no ice' because otherwise you get a cup full of ice with a little dash of lemonade, but thats in most places these days! would reccomend the place but be wary of what you order and what you actually get. Also although the waitress we had was lovely, she finished her shift during our visit and the other staff were really difficult to get the attention of as they were chatting around the bar area.
