Lovely food, giant portions and excellent service. The whole team was friendly and we will definitely be back, once things return to some sort of normality. The only reason I scored lower on atmosphere is because with only few tables sat around us and social distancing enforced outside, there wasn't much of an atmosphere at all... saying that, I'm sure things are much better when the place is busier, also, the team made us feel welcomed and at home. Looking forward to coming back!

The service was fab, all the waitresses were friendly and efficient. Food came quickly, was yummy and a lovely atmosphere outside. Bonus that they bring a jug of water to the table as soon as you sit down! Will definitely eat there again.

This was the first time out for a meal after Covid restrictions had been lifted and on arrival, we were greeted by a friendly and smiley team who made us feel most welcome. Service was superb, fast, efficient without making us feel rushed. We had the Fatcap Burger which was absolutely amazing and I'd highly recommend trying it. I dont normally choose burgers at restaurants but im so glad I did because I'd have it again next time we visit because it was so tasty. Cannot rate the food and service enough...well done to all the staff and see you again soon! :0)

Was very disappointing that restaurant could run out of prosecco and rum! Also, we were seated under a gazebo with a rubbish little heater, even though it states that outdoor seating is heated. And then some people who came after us were offered to be moved to a proper heated table, yet we were not. Therefore, the service was very poor.

Couldn't fault the food or service but it would have been nice when booking online there was no information that there was a time limit for eating our meal.

What a great meal. They were fully booked, but they rearranged the seating to get us in! Brilliant and see you again next week, thank you.

Very disappointing! Got seated on front tent what wasn't mentioned anywhere, had feeling like sitting in a car park. Of course there was no heaters to keep warm. Also rang few days earlier wishing to add one more person and was told there is no way could add one more chair but definitely had space for it. One drink menu for four people and a minute given to choose (did turn down waitress three times in less than five minutes!). Wish I did book somewhere else, definitely mums birthday surprise was ruined.

I’ve always been a lover of Fatcap and their food is always perfect. Real authentic American taste, every time! Despite the circumstances they’ve still sustained positive attitude, they’re friendly, upbeat and efficient. 5* from me!!
