Is this the best pub in Norwich?

The Fat Cat, in West End Street, has been chosen as the city's 'signature' pub by Evening News readers.

The pub was established more than 30 years ago in December 1991 by Colin and Marjie Keatley.

It has won numerous regional and national awards including a CAMRA's 50th anniversary Gold Awards in 2021 for "national pub all-stars".

The Fat Cat has also been named the Good Pub Guide's beer pub of the year 11 times since 1998 and was named best pub in the Great British Food Awards in December.

It was also named runner-up in the Observer Food Monthly Awards 2022 in the "Best Place to Drink" category.  

The pub serves up tacos, ribs, wings and burgers from Harry's Soul Train.

Owners Colin and Marjie recently submitted a planning application to the city council to create an additional bar area.

The Fat Cat is open from 12noon to 10pm on Sunday and Monday, until 11pm from Tuesday to Thursday and until 12 midnight on Saturday.
