The Fat Cat is one of the UK's finest pubs, with a characterful interior that looks older than the mere 25/26 years that the pub has been open. The beer range, on pump, in bottles, on keg and on gravity is mouth-watering, and the Fat Cat is worth an hour or three of anyone's time.

A friend recommended this place to us, I'm glad he did! It's brilliant pub, plenty of quality real ale. I really liked the Fat Cat Brewing Company's Rhubarb and Custard. Nice ambiance and decor, friendly clientele. It's got everything a great pub needs and more. One of the best pubs I've ever visited! Go there now!

A really nice English pub, and I say that as a Scot. Nice atmosphere, great beers and largers, and just fun. Crowded at weekends of course...

This place has been wonderful over the 20+ years I have been visiting.Colin,the owner,has created heaven on earth for beer drinkers.The beer is always in the best condition possible and there is a huge range from which to choose.The ambience is sans pareil.No music,no television (except discreetly for special events) just people enjoying a mardle and great beer with friends.

A haven of sanity in an insane world. Just what a pub should be like. And the beer is pretty good too.

One of Norwich's busiest pubs, and for good reason. Very friendly. Perfect for catching up with old friends. Good selection of ales.

A beer lovers paradise, a proper, no frills old fashioned pub, pity they had run out of rolls but the pork pies were very good. The quality of the Beer could not be surpassed & I suspect... More

with such a huge superb choice of Ales, Beers and Lagers on tap, it's no wonder it's always busy. Great for socialising or a sneaky pint after work or just when needed. Supporting local brewery's with signage displaying beers and strength for all taste buds. A must try pub, if only for the experience. Either sit in or outside, always... More
