Welcome to the Fat Cat
We are a small, friendly Free House where you can enjoy a wide selection of up to twenty real ales served straight from the cask from our temperature controlled tap room. Also on offer are up to seven real ciders as well as a selection of gins, whiskies, rums, wines and Belgian beers. Find out more by perusing our drinks section.
Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed into the pub or garden at present, but we hope to be able to relax this as we go along.
We are a pub about the beer and the people so whether it is lively debate you're after or a quiet pint in the greenery filled garden, you can find it here!
Keep an eye out for events taking place throughout the year including quizzes, live music and beer, wine and spirit tastings.
We accept credit/debit cards and contactless payments (minimum transaction £3).
