Had a pizza here recently, first time I had visited in years. It wasn't very nice. The ingredients are cheap and clearly prepackaged. I had a chicken pizza, and the chicken was of the vacuum packed variety. For the price, you are much better off going across the street to one of the Italians, or even down to Monroe's for... More

Went here recently based on numerous recommendations from friends. My partner and I are both vegan and our waitress could not have been more helpful, from helping us choose what to get and offering us vegan mayo to go with our meal and letting us know the after dinner mints were vegan - this was all very much appreciated. Knowledgeable... More

Was on the mood for spaghetti bolognese so we decided on Fat Freddy's. The dinner was cold and tasteless. Been here a few times now and haven't enjoyed the food. We won't be going back again.

Loved this eatery. Went to Fat Freddy's twice, once for lunch and again for dinner another day. Both times the food was quick to come out and to a fantastic quality. The food was tasty and atmosphere fun and friendly. Loved it here

Wandered up and down Quay Street looking for somewhere to eat and chose here due to large menu selection. Received a very warm welcome and was promptly seated. Great atmosphere and very popular too. Service was with a large smile throughout. Food was prompt, plentiful and of a good standard. Very reasonably priced as well. Would recommend.

We went to this restaurant, as our teenagers had been there before and wanted to go again. It's in a great location on Shop st. and the decor is cool - based around the comic book character Fat Freddy. The kids enjoyed their pizzas. The three adults did not. They were, not bad, but a bit flavourless. The service was... More

Visited with our young daughters. It was very child friendly, offering half portions of the pasta dishes and lots of other options. My husband loved the ribs. It was quite busy so obviously a popular spot.
