Small informal venue. Burgers are very tasty & good choice of toppings and side dishes. Service was a little slow when we visited on a Saturday, it was worth the wait. Would visit again.

Fashionable amongst the young and Jesmond set, great burgers delivered in a relaxed setting. It's not exactly intimate but friendly and informal. Handmade burgers and proper chips.

I have visited the fat hippo in Jesmond on a number of occasions and each time it has been excellent. Staff are always friendly and provide great service, the food is always well cooked and there is always enough to fill you. Expect to pay around £8 to £10 for a burger on an evening. I will continue to be... More

I've been to the Fat Hippo Jesmond many times. I live in Edinburgh but can't take a trip down to Newcastle without a trip to the Fat Hippo. The place itself is lovely - small, cosy and with nice decor. The staff are always friendly and efficient. Prices are very reasonable and the burgers, well the burgers are phenomenal. I've... More

I've been to the Fat Hippo in Jesmond a couple of times for dinner and lunch, it is fantastic! Great food, huge portions that are really good value for money, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. The only thing is that I would recommend booking a table as it can get quite busy but you can do that online so it's super... More

After visiting 'The Fat Hippo Underground' in Central Newcastle several times and having a 10/10 experience every time a group of friends and I thought we would visit the sister restaurant in Jesmond. Safe to say we instantly regretted our decision!! Turned up to a restaurant that was very cold, were not seated at our table until 15 minutes after... More

I'm a massive fan of the fat hippo underground in newcastle and me and a small group fancied a change of scenery so decided to try the jesmond branch. I would have given the place one star if I hadn't of been to the newcastle one before. We stood for ages on our arrival to be seen to even though... More
