Bank Holiday Burgers in Newcastle

Nothing quite says ‘bank holiday weekend’ like throwing your diet plan out of the window and going gung-ho at one of the Toon’s brilliant burger bars. We’ve rounded up the best burgers to try out in Newcastle this weekend as the May bank holiday celebrations kick into action… 





This is not a drill! Repeat, this is not a drill! Time to grab your tire irons and put em’ up as our friends at Fat Hippo have finally taken to the streets! Yep, that’s right, you can now enjoy the satisfaction of shaking your fries out of the little tin pots and all over your Fat Hippo tray once again as these burger pros have opened up an al fresco patty paradise over on Shakespeare Street. You can book a table in their new Shakespeare Street pavement cafe right via the link below… 




Be sure to boogie on over to Stack on Pilgrim Street this weekend and dive head first into Boojie Burger’s mouth-watering range of brioche delights. Expect signature 30 day aged beef patties, seasoned with Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper, cooked to perfection then loaded into a toasted brioche bun that’s oozing with flavour. Coupled with a few cold ones and good vibes with your team, we think you’re onto a first-class bank holiday weekend with this lot! 




Calling all burger-lovers! Nab yourself a spot in Meat:Stack's new outdoor seating area and tuck into some truly tasty grub. Whether you’re a chicken or a beef lover, we can guarantee you’ll find something to hit the spot! For us, their signature steamed pattie, a slice of cheese and some crisp iceberg lettuce is a winning combo. Time to tuck in team!            




Don’t be fooled by Banyan’s lush outdoor seating and exquisite cocktails, this lot know how to knock up a mean burger and they’re a fab spot to visit if you’re in the mood for some brilliant bank holiday burger action this weekend. From plant-based creations featuring meat-free burgers, veganaise and mango salsa with seasoned chips, to a delightfully hearty cajun-chicken burger that’s packed full of flavour, be sure to follow the link below to get you and your gang booked in for some burger fun. 






An understated burger joint in NE1 that’s well worth sidelining your summer diet! Standing tall at the bottom of Northumberland Street, Five Guys is best known for their fab range of burgers, dogs and sandwiches that all come complete with 15 free customisable toppings! Each burger is a whopper, they’re created using prime beef from Scotland and their freshly cut, twice cooked salty fries are to die for. As if that wasn’t enough already, be sure to check out their dessert shakes too - with millionaire shortbread and strawberry cheesecake concoctions to choose from for afters. 




A relatively newcomer to the burger scene here in Newcastle, FED’s serves seriously good fried chicken and their menu is simply lush. Kickstart your bank holiday celebrations in the Toon with a special brunch burger; this newly devised sandwich-come-burger beauty features toasted egg waffles, succulent chicken tenders, cinnamon butter and sweet pickles - it’s guaranteed to give your tastebuds a proper wake-up call! This cool foodie hangout is nestled within our beautiful Grainger Market and a must-visit for the burger connoisseurs out there.




One of Newcastle’s beloved foodie spots, our friends at Lola Jeans serve up a real messy burger, and it’s worth every finger-lickin’ minute! Over on Market Street, Lola Jeans are renowned for stacking their burgers high and mighty, as well as smothering on all the cheese and sauces you could dream of, resulting in a delicious, taste explosion. Whether it’s their ‘California’ burger that features two signature beef patties, smoked salt beef, mature cheddar, crispy pickle chips, red onion jam and ranch dressing or their homemade beetroot and dorito crumbed oyster mushroom vegan burger - you know you’re in safe hands. They have collection and delivery services up and running for this weekend (via link below) - we’ll leave the rest to you!
