Fat Cat and Canary

Originally the East End Retreat (from 1852) in 1965 it became the Mustard Pot. It was offered for sale by Adnams in 2011 and in 2012 it was bought by Colin Keatley to be renamed the Fat Cat & Canary.

Real ale lovers have been making a beeline to the pub since it opened in May last year.

It's the third pub in the city with the words 'Fat Cat' in its name, following the original Fat Cat in West End Street and the Fat Cat Brewery Tap in Lawson Road.

Colin Keatley, who owns the Fat Cat pubs, entrusted Christian Hodgkinson with the running of the new Thorpe Road pub. The pub was redecorated with the Fat Cat colour scheme and has the same pork pies and sandwiches to buy on the bar as the other two pubs. Regulars said that while the Mustard Pot was famed for its 'sticky carpet', the new incarnation was a totally different beast.
