Fat Hippo Jesmond is having a makeover!

It all started with Fat Hippo Jesmond restaurant, and we're excited to announce the original member of the family is having a make over! Fat Hippo Jesmond will be closed from Monday 27th until Thursday 30th June for its refurbishment.

Our friends at Rough Luxe Interiors will be looking after our original burger joint's transformation and we can't wait to show you its new look. Like the other members of the Fat Hippo family, we're keeping the relaxed cool vibe. There'll be a lot of wood, exposed brick, Edison bulbs and reclaimed furniture. Having worked with Rough Luxe on the interior of our Durham restaurant, we know we're in very safe hands.

Why the makeover? Back in 2010, there was nowhere in Newcastle to get your hands on a great burger, and we thought it was about time someone changed that. Since we started out, our Jesmond restaurant, despite being the smallest of the family, is still one of our most popular restaurants. So we thought it was only right to give Jesmond a little spruce up, as well as add a couple more tables to try to cut down queuing times a little!

We'll be unveiling Fat Hippo Jesmond's new interior on Friday 1st July. Help us wet the hippo's head and celebrate the new look with a Fat Friday feast Fat Hippo style! You can book your table online here.
