3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice place with a shabby chic interior. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food however was rather average, priced at about £10 per burger. OK portions for lunch, but still had to make dinner later for three hungry teenagers!

Burger restaurant, with American style varieties. Good food, friendly service. Mainly student clientele due area. Only small and can get busy. Meal deals lunch an v. early evening. Local brewed artisan beers. Be aware the alcohol "free" beer has 0.5%.

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit if you are in Jesmond. It's fairly small, so most likely best to book a table prior to visiting. Very tasty burgers and friendly staff, would definitely visit again.

Wanted something quick, and not too pricey so this fitted the bill. Had chicken wings and one of their speciality burgers and was stuffed! Not convinced by the breadcrumb covering of the wings but the burger was fantastic.

Glad you enjoyed your burger :) We're a bit confused by your comment on the chicken wings because we don't actually don't serve them - we think you're probably referring to our Freddie's Fingers which are breaded chicken strips served with hot sauce! Sorry to hear they weren't to your taste - they go down a treat with most of... More

Recently refurbished, though I'd not been to this place before now, though my daughter and son law have. Really nice food, good staff and value for money, worth a visit.

Been coming here for about 3 years and the place never fails to impress. Service is casual and friendly, they all know the menu well. The atmosphere is a good mix of students, young professionals and burger aficionados. The menu is very well priced. The burgers are homemade, cooked to your liking, always juicy and full of flavour. Never managed... More

We were really looking forward to eating at Fat Hippo as it sounded in reviews to serve great food, we were not dissapointed with the food, it was amazing, the wine was a bit pricey though. The thing that let us down was the service, the 3 lads were polite and did do their jobs but oh dear, they all... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. While we're pleased you enjoyed your burgers, we're disappointed to hear you thought the service lacked pizazz. We've passed your comments on to our general manager, Matt, and he's in the process of implementing more staff training across our restaurants to ensure this doesn't happen in future. More
