Fat cat is a political term originally describing a rich political donor , also called an angel or big money man. The New York Times has described fat cats as symbols of "a deeply corrupt campaign finance system riddled with loopholes", with Americans seeing them as recipients of the "perks of power", but able to "buy access, influence policy and even veto appointments. It is also commonly used to describe a rich, greedy person who, due to ownership of large amounts of capital , is able to "live easy" off the work of others.

Good atmosphere, nice beers and plenty to choose from. Spent the evening with some friends for which this is a great venue. Home to the award winning Fat Cat Brewery. Live music, Food and an outstanding choice in beers. Brilliant pub, great atmosphere, really good selection of beers and the cheese boards are awesome! They have a fair bit of live music at weekends and always good bands. They have Motherchip now which is chips with various toppings, goes down really well after a few ales. We pre booked a table for 6 and a cheese board, well it was a fantastic afternoon. Great beers as always friendly helpful staff and a cheese board that not only served us, but we passed it on to other customers! Music was just right for the type of thing we wanted.
