This was the first time 2Q had taken place in Derby and it all seemed to go off pretty damn well.

My only gripe of the day was not one of the venues where selling any food and everyone was starving/or very drunk! With most of the venues having outside areas could they have not have had a fast food truck or with Derby city centre having more take away spent square mile than any other city could the not have teamed up and got one of them to open during the day?

Apart from that the day was full of laughs, drinks, a little bit of rain and a lot of good music!

Tickets for next year have already gone on sale.

HIDE burger / Derby

  

With burger places on every street corner now doing every topping you could think of it’s getting hard to stand out in the burger crowd.

   
 
Visited HIDE on a Thursday evening, didn’t book but if you are planning on making a trip there I’d recommend booking as there isn’t many seats.

It was just the second night of the new menu launch when we went, a simple menu but all of it very tempting.

   
    
I had the Chilli burger..

 
..and my partner had the Hide burger.

Both came with rosemary fries but we did order a side of onion rings to share. Be warned, the onion rings are HUGE!

  
I’d been told such good things about this place that I did have a panic that it wouldn’t meet my expectations but thank fuck I didn’t have to worry.

Our food came out quickly but not so fast that I worried it had been microwaved. My burger was full to bursting with meat as was my partners and silence descended on our table for a good ten minutes whilst we wolfed them down.

The onion rings had been deep fried but stayed on the right side of greasy AND they stayed together when bit in too.

  
The deserts and cocktails all looked pretty inviting but unfortunately we were way too stuffed! I will be wanting to try a root beer float next time.

   
 
There’s a good selection of drinks and by the looks of it a regular rotation of guest beers.

We washed everything down with good beer from two of our favourite breweries and rolled ourselves outta there with massive smiles on our faces.

If your fed up of chains, burgers being served on donuts, more toppings you could shake a stick at then literally “follow the herd” down to hide.
