Brilliant! Simple set up, efficient and friendly service. £5 burger deal is excellent value and the Fat Hippo burger was superb, easily one of the best burgers I've ever had. Thoroughly recommended..😊

We were lucky enough to be able to take advantage of the two courses for £10 which was amazing value. There weren't many starters left in the offer so the waitress kindly let us order items not part of the deal. We had dirty fries (no skins left), deep fried gherkins, Freddie's fingers (chicken strips) to start, Ranch, Texas, and... More

Quite simply the best burgers I've ever tasted. Dirty fries are to die for, puddings are awesome and their drinks selection is very good too. Fast, friendly and fantastic

Amazing burger, the sauce was great and the presentation was great. Just a shame the onion rings and fries came out cold.

So, I now have a new favourite burger house and it's called fat hippo. After a few of my friends and colleagues mention how good the food was i got really excited and it was worth trying it.

Lovely friendly staff with quick service. Nice range of burgers with more than one veggie option which is rare, it feels like lots of thought went into making the vegetarian option more than the usual bean burger (just because they have to offer something) The toppings are mouth watering. Great value for money and once they start to deliver in... More
