If your looking for a special event venue in Nottingham you must consider Fat Cat Cafe Bar; Kim the event manager showed absolute professional commitment to making sure our daughter's 21st Birthday Party was a memorable event for all the right reasons, we had a brilliant evening. The upstairs function room with it's own private bar has an immediate feel... More

great place for a drink after work, cocktails are quite well priced but the beers can be on the higher side if you want premium. The food can be a little greasy but its good basic food and the price isn't overly much.

Tried to have lunch here this afternoon with my boyfriend. He's 26 and I'm 22. Refused entry at the door because I didn't have ID. I wasn't aware you had to be a certain age to eat? When questioned I was told "you might have a drink" really?!? There were children there eating, how did they get in? What if... More

Visited with a large group of people for a birthday meal. I appreciate it is challenging serving a large group but quite a few of our meals were lukewarm and we had even pr-ordered days before. Despite the lukewarm food, the service was good, my meal was tasty and the chocolate pavlova dessert was moreish. I also really enjoyed the... More

I attended this restaurant a few weeks ago on a whim during a shopping day in Nottingham with my partner. I am vegetarian and ordered a veggie burrito type thing (there wasn't much on the menu to cater for veggies so had to make something up and get them to take the chicken out of a normal burrito). The waitress... More

I am a huge fan on Fat Cats and we always come for cocktails when possible. Today (4.30pm ish) we decided to finally try the food and to say we were disappointed was an understatement. 1) We first walked in and was unsure as to whether we were meant to be greeted or seat ourselves. Eventually our waiter appeared and... More

Really great meal out, managed to seat a table of 18 on a friday night. All ordered our food in advance and majority of dishes are half price for students, so each of us paid just £5-6 for a generous portion! Burgers for example contained two patties, fajitas came on a plank, all other portions were large too, so great... More

Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal at fat cats. There is a good variety on the menu with good portion sizes. Price was good especially with 50 percent off on Sunday. Would go back.
