I was looking for somewhere to take my partner's mum who was visiting, that wasn't another pub, and found this online.
We telephoned in advance to check if we needed to book (we didn't) and if they could accommodate our 18 month old daughter, which they could.
The restaurant is a cosy little place, bright and unpretentious. The staff were very welcoming and set the 4 of us up on a spacious table, including a highchair for our daughter. The menu is quite extensive and has lots of different burgers, including lamb, bean and chicken, as well as non-burger alternatives.
We opted for 2 regular burgers and a sharer plate - 5 different mini burgers - for my daughter and partner to share. The burgers were HUGE! and came with chunky fries.
Everything tasted great and we were stuffed by the end of it.
We loved the food, the prices were reasonable and we had a very relaxed lunch. I'm looking forward to going back.

Very good burgers - many different variations on a classic beef burger! Very good value - the quality of the food far exceeds food at chain burger restaurants for the same price. Relaxed, informal atmosphere and very good service. We did not have room for pudding but they looked delicious too! I would definitely go back. Excellent for a relaxed meal out on a budget.

An excellent new gem tucked away in West Jesmond. The tower block-high burgers block out the sun as they are carried out to the tables and the variety of high quality flavours makes it well worth becoming a fat hippo.

Excellent find. Good food, good service, lovely atmosphere and well worth returning to. They have a deli down the road which is great for a take away sandwich always a good sign to see plenty of patronage from local people especially when plenty of competition. Well done to the staff in both outlets.
