Review - Hide the Burger

This place is like a superhero with duel identity, cafe by day and burger bar by night.

My wife booked this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and because of my love for burgers. It was on our wedding anniversary so my expectations were set high! I was not disappointed.

The decor is interesting and quirky. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The menu is small (not a criticism) but varied. The are 8 burgers, salads, sides and puddings.

There is a good selection of beers and drinks. I loved the ginger beer which had real feisty kick and is loaded with spices, this would make a great mixer with a rum.  The homemade lemonade which is served with a scoop of lemon sorbet, in a  mason jar is very refreshing.

I went for the Chilli Burger (6oz beef patty, iceberg, sweet firey peppers, crispy onions, pickled cucumber, chorizo & chilli relish, smoky mayo in a brioche bun). The burger was one of the best I have had, and believe me I eat plenty.

Chilli Burger

My wife had the Chicken Burger (Chicken breast, Iceberg, Packington pig streaky bacon, avocado, red pepper & mango relish, smoky moo mayo, pickled cucumber in a brioche bun). That was really good too (I had to have a bite for research purposes of course). Both burgers came with a generous portion of rosemary fries.

They also use a local Derbyshire butcher for the beef and local baker for the brioche buns. thatfatfoodguy hat-tip to that! I highly recommend this place.

What they say:


We appreciate at first bite the melt in the mouth beef, the cut, the age and the grind of the meat, the flat top grill cooking method that achieves that well rested medium rare burger. It’s about the correct characteristics of the bun, the flavorsome twang of the relish on the burger, the perfectly melted cheese, the intense smoky flavor of the bacon, the freshness of salad ingredients and the crunch of the homemade pickle.
Then what completes the experience is the marriage of the burger to those perfectly seasoned hand cut salted chips that finally fashions what we consider to be a GREAT burger".
