Welcome to the Fat Cat
We are a 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.
Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome and we have a small selection of treats for your canine companions.
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).
The Fat Cat is Ipswich & East Suffolk CAMRA's Town Pub of the Year 2018; the fourth year running CAMRA members have voted us their favourite!
Don't just take our word for it though, you'll find us in The Good Beer Guide and The Good Pub Guide and we have been featured in The Daily Telegraph and The Guardian.
A huge thank you to all who helped us to reach the Top Ten of the Good Pub Guide's Top Ten Beer Pubs country-wide!
