Not here at the Fat Cat! I’m sat in front of a coal fire, with a pint of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord and the remains of my lunch, a steak pie, and feeling very good! The tray-baked pie was full of chunks of lean meat, and...More

The Fat Cat was a (very) regular haunt for me in the late ‘80’s and early ‘90’s. The original real ale pub in Sheffield with multiple guest beers and good basic home cooked nosh. Nothing has changed in all those years, you’ll either love it...More

A brilliantly shockingly traditional pub, from the small entrance, to the split rooms, the traditional decor, the spread of beers available and the friendly and cheerful staff. Even thou the pork pie is not made by them, it lives to its reputation as one of...More
