A locals pub with an outstanding range of ales on both handpump and gravity. Some house beers, good guests. Fair value. Friendly bar staff. Beery drinking vessels hanging from the ceiling. No music - itís all about the beer and banter. Plenty of beer ephemera on the walls. Mostly old blokes chatting and drinking ales. A proper beer drinkers pub. World class.

Visited with beery friends august 2015. A bit of a walk from city center ( not to bad though ). Large corner pub, seems as the local in the area, but still with a very welcoming atmosphere.Being a Fat Cat pub, most beers are from their own brewery. Oldstyle and very cosy, lots of taps and few seatings outside. Beers served in good condition, on the day we visited there was a nice selection of their regulars on. Nice ciders and perrys as well. For sure worth a visit, will be back next time I will be in Norwich.

A cheerful street corner local, a short way out of town but well worth the walk, the Fat Cat has an extensive choice of beers and ciders (both their own and guests), making it a major beer destination. The last time I was here was at a weekend and it was packed to the gills but this time - on a Tuesday afternoon - it was quieter and we were easily able to find a seat in a pleasant side room decorated with old pub signs. (Visited 4 August 2015).

A bit of a locals pub, not the plushest decor Iíve seen, but as a characterful interior, itís great. Good selection of beer, didnít see evicence of more than about 12, so they could work on their signage. Friendly staff. If this really has 30+ taps, itís definitely worth prioritising, and doing more investigation.

_Connoisseur_  (3) , England | August 26, 2015
I was blown away with the huge selection of their own brewed ales, literally somewhere between 20 - 30 different ales to choose from including guest ales. Each table had access to a selection of board games, and the whole experience was exactly what youíd want from a pub.

Really embodies the atmosphere of a pub that brews lots of its own beers and is proud of it. Great range, cool atmosphere, friendly faces, and just far enough out to avoid the international students (saying that as an international student). Easily one of the top 3 pubs in Norwich.

Loads of cask ale served both by hand pump and on gravity, great atmosphere, one of the very best pubs in the UK.

As everyone else says, a brilliant pub well worth going to. There is nothing more I can add without repeating what has already been said!

Theydon_Bois  (871) Tourist Town (West), England | February 16, 2013
Visited on a Friday night in the mid noughties on a weekend visit to Norwich. The place was booming and we managed to snag one of the last tables. Service held up well. Tickers heaven, 20 something sticks on the bar and then another 7 or 8 beers from gravity in the room behind! Must visit on a Norwich drink up - just a shame itís a little out of town and requires a cab ride or a lengthy walk.
