CLOSING DOWN PARTY

As I’m sure you’re aware we are closing for a major refurbishment. We’ll be closed on Monday 14th May for 3 weeks (hopefully no longer!) But fear not for we have a ‘spare pub’ for these such occasions. Best of all our spare pub, The Fat Percy, is located just a few yards (90 to be exact) down the road on the corner of West End Street and Adelaide Street. We hope you can all make the short walk and join us in The Fat Percy for a pint or 2. Anyone unfortunate enough to forget and end up in The Fat Cat during this time will be handed a hammer or paint brush and forced into a life of hard labour at the hands of the taskmaster (and pub renovation extraordinaire) Willy Moles. Be warned…


To celebrate our long overdue refurb we’ll be holding a low-key closing down ceremony. Well, not so much a ceremony as a we-need-to-sell-all-the-beer-before-we-close party. So expect to see a fair few beers at a reduced price as the weekend approaches. To compliment the cheap(er) ale we’ll have a couple of pop-up food options. On Saturday we’ll have pizzas from the NOMADI (The Proper Pizza Co.) and Sunday THE NATURAL BORN GILLERS will be serving a range of gourmet burgers. Yum.


On to the refurbishment itself. Please do not worry. We’re not changing our image or style (don’t forget we’ve still got that job lot of Inca Beige and Golden Gourd paint to get through before we even think about introducing pastel colours or greys and olives). We are however completely redesigning the toilets, having a brand new wooden bar top installed and generally tidying up everything else that has suffered from wear and tear over the past 27 years. I’ll keep you updated by adding a few photos on Facebook and Instagram to during the process.


In conclusion - Fat Cat will be closed from Monday 14th May. The Fat Percy will be open from Monday 14th May. All your favourite ales will still be available.


See you there…x
