I can’t add anything to the reviews below, a multi roomed pub with lots of ales to go at. Pleasant beer garden at the back and well priced food all day.

The Fat Cat is what I would describe as a proper pub,little unchanged inside it would seem through the decades. With 12 Handpumps in total, 8 in use on my visits there was plenty of choice , Kelham Islands Easy Rider and Pale Rider along with Durham West Coast IPA were mine. The decently priced pub grub was available all day , another bonus. A must visit pub on anyones list.

Originally built in 1850 as the Alma, the Fat Cat acquired its current name in 1981; a lovely Cannon Ales mosaic can be seen in the entrance doorway, an indication that this was once a Wiliam Stones' pub. Indeed, CAMRA considers this place to be noted for its Interior of Some Regional Importance.
Comprehensively described below, I got the impression that this place didn't have the slightly more upmarket aspirations as its neighbour but it did have a more vibrant atmosphere as well as two passing lovely local lasses who joined our group photo. However, it was starting to fill up and I can quite imagine that later in the evening it would be rather crowded, something which doesn't appeal to me.
Ales: too many to list and probably all on rotation, but my half of Eagle Brewing's APA was great, though at £1.80 was quite steep by Sheffield standards.
Unlike its neighbour around the corner, this pub, despite its name, doesn't have a cat so if you fancy a break, have a KIT cat, a superb double-header.
