CAMRA’s Norfolk Pub of the Year Announced

Norfolk Pub of the Year 2012 Winner:- Fat Cat, 49 West End Street, Norwich, NR2 4NA

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, has today announced that The Fat Cat, Norwich, has been
judged as Norfolk Pub of the Year 2012.
Owned by Colin Keatley, the Fat Cat, which normally has over 25 real ales available, is described in
the Good Beer Guide as “An outstanding example of what a real ale pub should be like” and “A beer
lover’s paradise that no visitor to Norwich should miss”.
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.
Two pubs were judged as part of the Norfolk competition. The Union Jack in Roydon, which is the
West Norfolk CAMRA branch Pub of the Year and the Fat Cat.
Andrea Briers, East Anglia Regional Director, said “The two pubs in this year’s competition are
excellent, thriving local pubs which lead to a very close result. It shows the dedication of all those
involved in running the pubs. Well done to Colin Keatley and the team at the Fat Cat.”
