“Very nice food and surroundings”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I had a nice meal here which certainly exceeded what you'd expect from a chain pub. Nice atmosphere too and one of my favourite bars in town. Keep it up Fat Cat!

“Very nice food + drinks”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

visited here with a friend and the food was very nice and at a very good price, both had starters and mains and 2 cocktails and it cost £32 in total...
Very nice service also, though they had a party of 20 to deal with also, we never were left out...
Will be visiting again..

“Great food great value great service”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Fat cats Derby has got the blend of relaxed dining and a bustling cocktail bar just right. The dining area is perfect for small tables, business lunches or larger parties (I'd estimate around 50 people at a max). On the occasions I have dined there the service has been excellent and the food enjoyable and value for money.
Of an evening Fat Cats transforms into a contemporary cocktail lounge/bar with fantastic customer offers throughout the week. Service from all staff is again very good which means there are no lengthy queues at the bar waiting to be served. For this reason amongst others, Fat Cats are always high on the lists of places to visit when I plan any night out with friends.
