Fat Cat Public House

The site of this popular Kelham Island pub has deeds dating from 1832 but it is not known if a pub was opened at that time. By 1852 the property was a pub called the Kelham Island Tavern (not to be confused with the current pub of the same name around the corner on Russell Street). It was then called The Battle of the Alma until 1981, before taking its current name.

1 Review of Fat Cat:

  • Dean Keith

    The beer is always excellent, as is the food. But I always find the atmosphere a little subdued, almost to the point of being funereal. To be honest it's time for a complete rejigging of the downstairs bar areas.

    Now I know this will be heresy to the bearded pilgrims who sit chatting in hushed, reverent tones, but I'm sure the bar staff could use a little room to work in rather than looking like a rag week stunt to cram as many people into a telephone booth.

    Also, getting served at a tiny hatch from where you can't see the pumps is very tedious!

    Since the smoking ban, having two separate rooms is no longer necessary. Open it up and let the dogs see the rabbit.

    You never know you, just might cheer the place up a little.

News for Fat Cat:

  • Dave Wickett, owner of the Fat Cat pub at Kelham Island, is angry that his top-rated kitchen has been incorrectly labelled as receiving zero stars after an inspection.

    The rating, published through Scores on the Doors, is incorrect and also outdated, with the inspection having taken place in February 2007. At the time the pub should have been awarded 3 stars, and it has since been completely refitted and gone through stringent tests, after becoming contaminated in the floods of summer 2007.

    Sheffield City Council has now updated the Fat Cat's score, giving them 3 stars out of 5.

  • The Fat Cat near Shalesmoor is hosting the ceremony for the "mashing in" of Sheffield's Golden Jubilee Ale. The commemorative ale, "The Star Golden Jubilee Ale", will be celebrated on Wednesday 17th April at 3:30PM. The ceremony will be undertaken by Marian Rae, High Sheriff of South Yorkshire, and Peter Charlton, editor of The Star. Other civic dignitaries and beer lovers will be in attandance, and of course, everybody is welcome. There are other events planned for May, so once again, watch this space!
