“Great value”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

(Last reviewed 25 November 2013) Great offers on drinks/food especially on a Tuesday when everything is half price. If you want a seat outside get there early as tables tend to fill up quickly.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

A group of us went to Fat Cats for something to eat and cocktails early evening on Friday. We sat on the terrace as it was a very sunny evening. The staff were professional, friendly and really helpful, particularly Rachael. The food was equally great. A really enjoyable evening made even better by the staff. We will definitely go to Fat Cats again soon.

“Great for 'people watching'”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

A sunny terrace outside the bar area, a great place to spend an hour or so over a couple of drinks in the late afternoon sunshine. Watching the early evening Derby party atmosphere building was exceptionally good fun! Most in large parties, probably having pre-Saturday-evening drinkies before moving on, the level of noise audibly doubled as the sun started to set. Not the sort of place for a romantic quiet drink as you can barely hear yourself think. I don't know if it was a slur on the food served at the Fat Cat, but we were amused to watch two young ladies eating covert Macdonalds out of their handbags...

“ladies night...what a let down”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

If you think that a piece of grilled chicken with mashed potato is a great meal then this is for you - if you aspire to anything more....perhaps even a vegetable or two then try bistro pierre,, wonky table or the spice lounge early bird meals - a couple of pounds more will make all the difference to your meal. Uninspiring, small portions....poor.
