Fat Hippo Durham opening 22nd April


Ok so we don’t like to brag or anything, but the start of the year has already proved 2016 is the year of the hippo. Last year we beat off tough competition in The Battle of the Burger. This year we won best restaurant in Newcastle in The Chronicle’s People’s Choice Awards 2015! Plus in just a couple of months, the latest member of the Fat Hippo herd will arrive!


Unless you’ve lived under a rock, or pretending it’s the 80s or something and living life offline, you’ll know exactly what we’re on about. But for those of you who might have missed it (you should pay better attention) Fat Hippo Durham is coming soon! It’s been a lot of hard (hungry) work, but we’re excited to announce the latest member of the herd will be open for business on April 22nd!  From a little place in Jesmond to three restaurants, we’ve come a long way since 2010. Our burgers may have changed their names a couple of times, but our mission has always been the same. We do the good kind of gluttony, serving up good old-fashioned get-it-all-over-your-face food. For the last 6 years, we’ve made our name in Newcastle, and now we’re excited to bring our bangin’ burgers to another great city in the North East. Plus we use 100% Northumberland and Durham beef – so we figured the move into Durham made sense!  There’s still some work before our launch, and you can bet we’re going to be cooking up all sorts of exciting new exclusives for Durham so keep your eyes peeled …

Durham Street Food Project – Project Two

The 2nd Durham Street Food Project, “Project Two” will be held in the Prince Bishops Car Park from 5:30 til 11:00 pm on January 30th 2015.

There’ll be Asian, Pizza, BBQ, Kebabs, Crepes, beer and more. Make sure you attend this unique event in Durham for a completely different foodie experience.

There are a few changes from the first “Project”, with lessons being learned and advice been taken. The location is a bit of an eye opener, but apparently the first one went down very well, so fingers crossed for the second one.

I as editor can’t make it to this, so if anyone wants to write a guest review for us that would be great.
