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

Popped in here for a team night out. Great burgers, well priced at Happy Hour. Some had starters and those Dirty Skins are fab. Some had dessert...waffles are not to be missed. In the middle were delicious burgers. Not a single complaint from any of us (and there were 11 people eating). Burgers cooked to liking and tailored with extras... More

Had a lovely time here with family. Only burger, don't expect anything else. The seating is rustic and the place is basic by that is part of the charm. Great food.

Three of us went for tea, burgers all round and they left us bloated, so beware of eating starters. Lovely atmosphere, superbly solid wooden tables, industrial feel to the decor. Very good value.
