The Hippo Lounge's standard opening hours are from 10am Monday - Saturday, and hot food is served until 6pm. On Sundays where there is a show, it opens one hour before the show begins. They serve a wide range of hot and cold drinks and a selection of light bites.
There are also a couple of bars that serve snacks (including crisps and sweets) alongside soft drinks and water. Cold drinks can be taken into the auditorium in plastic cups however the Hippodrome does not allow hot drinks or hot food inside the auditorium.
