New owners for popular HIDE burger bar at Riverside Chambers.

The popular HIDE burger bar located in Connect Derby’s Riverside Chambers on Full Street has new owners.


Mother and daughter duo Sarah and Olivia Pritchard have sold their business to Martyn Daykin and his partner Vanessa Jones, who will continue to run the business under the HIDE brand.


HIDE was established by Sarah and Olivia in 2014 after creating the successful Bean Caffe at Connect Derby’s Friar Gate Studios and since then has established a reputation for serving up an extensive menu of the highest quality burgers made from fresh ingredients, inspired by British food and local produce.


The new business will continue to offer the same high levels of quality and service, but with some subtle differences. Anyone working in and around Derby’s Cathedral Quarter will be pleased to see the return of HIDE’s takeaway menu, which is available from 8.30am Tuesdays to Fridays.


The new takeaway menu offers a selection of breakfast and lunch sandwiches, alongside homemade soup and salads. Vegan and gluten free options are also available.


HIDE will also be one of only a handful of outlets throughout the area to stock authentic Italian bread sourced from Martyn’s former neighbour and friend Fabrizzio, who runs the exclusive A & R Secchi Bakery in Nottingham.


Opening hours have been extended to give customers better flexibility and Martyn and Vanessa also have plans to launch a live Jazz Brunch.


Commenting on taking over the reins at HIDE, Martyn Daykin said:


“Vanessa and I are really excited to be running HIDE. We are both passionate about food and have always dreamed of running our own restaurant.

“The opportunity to take over such a popular venue as HIDE was too good to miss and we’re looking forward to developing the food offer further in the coming months.


“We really liked what Sarah and Olivia had created at HIDE, so we wanted to keep the core menu the same, whilst introducing some fresh new ideas such as our artisan Italian bread from Secchi Bakery.


“The restaurant’s original head chef has also returned, so we can continue serving up the tasty, Derbyshire beef burgers that customers love. We have high hopes for our new takeaway menu too, which we’ve kept simple with fresh ingredients and classic flavours.”


HIDE Burger Bar is located on the ground floor of Connect Derby’s Riverside Chambers on Full Street.
