Quinno _ left this review about Fat Cat & Canary

As you’d expect it’s like a mini Fat Cat with a similar feel in terms of décor; black and white chequerboard flooring, mustard walls and lots of old pub memorabilia, spread over three areas in an L shaped interior. Five ales on pump (may have been more on stillage out back) and I went for a Fat Cat Norwich Bitter (NBSS 3, just), alongside plenty of keg. Didn’t visit at the best time, mid-afternoon with just three other customers and a barmaid who’d disappeared off into the cellar for five minutes, but I liked what I saw. 7.5
Visited early August.

Has the look and feel of an estate pub or social club but with the addition of a good beer selection along with the afore mentioned breweriana decorating the inside.The beer was from a mixture of handpump and stillage, a choice of ten in all, I went for a pint of Fat Cat Marmalade which was pretty decent. The pub itself had a bit of a rough and ready feel about it but was perfectly ok.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Fat Cat and Canary

Curious building with a very large bow window behind a large front patio. Quite basic inside, but decorated with quite a bit of breweryana. Five beers on handpump plus eight on gravity when I called in on a flying visit, but I really enjoyed my pint of Fat Cat Porter (£3.20) and must return soon.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Mustard Pot

This is a decent pub and is well worth visiting. The pub consists of two main drinking areas, the front room with bar and a long narrow section leading down the rear of the pub. The flooring is black and white lino squared tiles, there is also plenty of seating. This real ale paradise hosts six ales on handpump and eleven on gravity. They also have rolls on the bar at a pound each, which are fab and sell out fas - no surprise there as l managed to eat two, whilst downing a few pints of Fat Cat bitter, which is good and hoppy, Cat and Canary and Shepherds Delight Cotswold Lion. Will defo call again.

Not a review but a comment. Pub has been closed a while, but is due to open in about 8 weeks time. Owner already has 2 Fat Cat pubs in Norwich, and hopes to sell a range of their beers plus guests and continental beers.

The Mustard Pot is about a 10 minute walk from Norwich train station.
The pub looks like it was built in the 30s with its flat roof,once inside the pub had two rooms with a pool room and a smartish bar which was a fairly decent room to have a drink in.
When i visited this pub it was a Adnams tied house and there were three real ales on the bar i had a drink of Adnams bitter and this was a nice drink the other beers were Adnams Broadside and Regatta.
I thought this was a decent pub and worth the walk.
