We chose to enjoy lunch at Fat Cats based on a positive referral. Our table of 4 enjoyed a pizza, good sized burger and fantastic chips, and two curry dishes. The staff were polite, friendly and efficient and we were never left thirsty. Well done

I wanted to invite a friend out for dinner and he suggested the Fat Cat. I was quite amazed about the nice rustic atmosphere, the friendly personnel and the unexpectedly nice food. A place well worth to re-visit.

Staff are lovely and very helpful. Had some really nice meals and some not so good. Benches are hard so a long lunch is not advised.

We had breakfast on a Sunday morning and it was lovely. Their omelette is definitely very different to the usual and quit delicious. Staff is very friendly and good luck for the owner
