Important COVID update: HiDEOUT is OPEN

It’s been a while since our doors were open (six months to be exact!) but we’re about to give you the news you’ve all been waiting for. The time has finally come – Hideout is OPEN!

Hideout is your Students’ Union bar serving up a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and bringing you delicious, fresh food from burgers, salads, wraps, desserts and much more! We can’t WAIT to welcome you back and we have brand new menu ready for you to view with lots of tasty and affordable dishes, including veggie, vegan and halal options!

As we have introduced some COVID safety measures within the HUBS, Hideout will be following some new guidelines which you’ll need to know before visiting us:

  • If you decide to visit us for some tasty grub, all you need to do is just turn up – you don’t need to book! We can’t wait to see you, but please don’t visit us if you have any COVID 19 symptoms or have been told to self-isolate.
  • There will be a one-way system in place, so you will enter through the main HUBS doors and leave through the fire exit
  • To help keep everyone safe and avoid close contact with others, you will be seated at a table by a member of staff upon your arrival
  • You’ll need to wear a face-covering when you enter the building and when you go to the toilets, but you can take it off at your table
  • We will be offering table service only, so please stay seated and we’ll be over to you as quickly as we can to take your order!
  • We will be using track and trace but don’t worry - it won’t take long and your details won’t be shared with anyone else
  • As much as we love you all tucking into our specials with your friends, we won’t be taking any bookings for group events such as Sports Teams or Society meet-ups and if you arrive in a group of over six people, you will be seated separately
  • To help keep everyone safe and prevent the spread of Covid, we have created more space, taken away our pool tables for the time being and there will be no events taking place within the bar. However, you can still take part in lots of fun and exciting events online!

We will be open Monday to Friday from 11am until 4pm, and food will be served between 11am and 3pm, so come and pay us a visit!

At the moment, Coffee Union and The Stall will remain closed, but we’ll make sure to update you when this changes.

Although The Stall will remain closed, you can still shop the Hallam look on our website here If you’re looking for personalised Hallam merch, click here 

We’re so excited to see you again and to all of our new students, we can’t wait to meet you!

See you soon!
