Get your hands round our juicy burgers in our restaurants located in Newcastle, Jesmond, Durham, Nottingham and in our two concessions in Sheffield. You can find out more about our Fat Hippo locations here.

Our concessions are smaller and often within another venue. Fat Hippo S1 is a concession within Lane7's building - the address is Unit 5 Maltida St., The Moor, S1 4PF. We also have Fat Hippo S3 which is a concession within Kommune, Castle House, Angel St, S3 8LS.

Don’t miss out! Head here to find the Fat Hippo opening times for each of our restaurants and concessions.

At our restaurants (Jesmond, Newcastle and Durham), reservations are welcome and you can easily book your table online here. We recommend booking if you would like to join us at a specific time to avoid any disappointment. If not, you’re more than welcome to just walk in and we’ll get you seated ASAP. 

At our concessions (Sheffield S1 and S3) reservations are ran by the main venue themselves. For Sheffield S3 you can make a reservation with Kommune online here. For Sheffield S1 you would need to get in touch with Lane 7 Sheffield directly either via Facebook or calling 0114 349 8118 or emailing Both Sheffield sites do also take walk in custom so please pop in and see us.

Keep your eyes peeled for the opening of our booking system for Nottingham.

We want to make sure your Fat Hippo experience is as best and as safe as it can be. To help keep you as safe as possible, we are currently set up at a reduced capacity alongside other extra measures to help protect everyone involved in your burger journey whilst comfortably complying with all current regulations. You can read our full Fat Hippo COVID-19 policy here. Stay soapy!

We sure do! Our restaurants offer both Click+Collect and Deliveroo. You can also find our Sheffield S1 concession on  Deliveroo - just change the delivery option to 'Pick Up' if you want to collect.

Our delivery parameters are set by Deliveroo (and they are always expanding) so head over to their site and stick in your postcode to find out the specifics! If they don't deliver to you, don't worry - you can always get your hands on our burgers via Click+Collect.

Occasionally during busy times, we don’t show up on Deliveroo for a short period of time. This could be down to us needing to pause our tablet for our kitchens to catch up, to prioritise dine in and Click+Collect orders or Deliveroo may be running short of riders in your area. 

To guarantee burgers at busy times, please use our Click+Collect pre-order service. 

If that is not possible, our best advice is to sit tight and try again in 10 minutes and we’ll be back as soon as possible.

You can order a Fat Hippo feast to Click+Collect up to a week in advance.

Choose the restaurant you’d like to collect from, select the time you’d like collect at (If you select ASAP that will revert to our next available slot which may be in a few hours so please double check!) Bag your favourite burger, treat yourself to that extra side, double check the time and pay. Once orders have been placed they are final and unable to be amended or have the time slot changed. On the day, arrive bang on time with your name/code ready, and the burger goods will be ready.

Wanting to collect in Sheffield? You can find us on Deliveroo - just change the delivery option to 'Pick Up' and collect from our Sheffield S1 site in Lane 7 Sheffield!

We are accepting walk ups at the moment at our restaurants only. However, we are only able to take card payments. Alternatively, please use our Click+Collect service to pre-book your collection slot and pre-pay for your order.
