One of Norwich’s most popular pubs will be presented with its Camra Norfolk Pub of the Year award tomorrow.

The Fat Cat in West End Street is now hoping for a hat-trick of titles in Camra’s national pub of the year competition, which it won both the previous times it reached this stage.

The pub, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last December, is renowned for its vast selection of up to 30 real ales.

Landlord Colin Keatley said: “I’m overwhelmed to be chosen – after 20 years in the trade and against such great opposition it’s a real honour.”

The Fat Cat had been named as Camra’s Norwich and Norfolk branch pub of the year, which covers two thirds of the county, and the Union Jack in Roydon was named the West Norfolk pub of the year. The Fat Cat beat the Union Jack to take the title of Norfolk’s pub of the year.

Andrea Briers, East Anglia regional director, said: “The two pubs are excellent, thriving local pubs, and it was a very close result. It shows the dedication of all those involved in running the pubs.”
