From Monday the 19th of July, we will be returning to bar service!
A few rules will remain in place though as we must still be cautious and considerate.
Whilst we will serve you at the bar, we ask that you do not sit or loiter at the bar. Please wear a face mask.
Please continue to wear a face mask when you are moving around the premises or going to the toilet.
Group size will be limited to 12 inside.
You do not have to sit at a table, but please be aware of others and do not crowd other people/groups of people.
We will be limiting the amount of customers that we can allow into the pub, and once we are full, we won't be able to allow further entry.
We will still be taking table bookings, but will leave a good few tables for those who just want to walk in. Walk in tables will be subject to availability, but we will accommodate you where we can! To book a table, call 01473 726524.
We are currently allowing take away food to be eaten here, help yourselves to plates and cutlery as usual and pop the plates and rubbish just inside the kitchen when you've finished.
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.
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.
