A group of 7 of us had breakfast here on a Sunday morning. Staff were friendly and helpful. Menu choice was good and we all enjoyed our food and drinks. There was a good atmosphere with a mix of families, groups and couples. Music was a bit different, although could have done with being a few notches quieter for those... More

We visited Giraffe after meeting our daughter after she finished work so we decided to grab a bite to eat,, we choose Giraffe as it looked like it had a nice selection on the menu that suited all of us (four in our party) It was not busy in any way, only six other tables, so we went in and...

Visited here one weekend. Friendly staff, not as attentive as we would have liked. Main criticism is the lack of choice on the menu, especially on the day we visited. After we had sat down with drinks they advised they had run out of practically every chicken dish and also the specials. In the end I opted for the burger,... More

Good menu selection for both Children and Adults and staff very friendly, but felt that the staff were a bit overwhelmed by the time we wanted to leave, by the number of people in restaurant versus staff levels as had to ask for bill a number of times. Staff friendly and good with the kids. Food was tasty, although not... More

The only good thing about this restaurant is the decor. The staff seemed uninterested from the moment we set foot in the place - at first I didn't even know if there were staff there. I probably could have completed an examination during the time it took for someone to approach us. I had some sort of sandwich, which came... More

My husband and I visited the restaurant last night. My husband is in a wheelchair and has a wheat, gluten and dairy intolerance so find eating out can be hard work....not here. We were given a tablet where we could select his intolerances and the menus was narrowed down accordingly. We were seated at a suitable table easily. Our waitress... More

The menu looks really great but the food is just ok! Nothing amazing and the prices are quite steep for what you get. The staff are slow and make quite a few mistakes but overall friendly.

Very good service and the staff were very accommodating of us needing to have a pushchair next to our table on a busy Sunday afternoon. The food was piping hot on arrival and the smoothies were very tasty. I would recommend Chicken Milanese, Rodeo Burger and Hippy Hippy Shake.

It's not often I am immediately impressed as soon as I walk into a restaurant. The energy and the big smile of the greeter was lovely, and she even took time out to greet our 19 month old. Most people just ignore babies. The server also went out of their way to engage with our daughter, and was very polite... More

Went it for what should have been a nice diner. We're sat by the kitchen which should have been a lovely spot, instead ended up having to listen to the chef hurling abuse at the waitresses and even the manager's! Treating them like cattle and asking if they were stupid?! Made me feel quite uncomfortable when waitress came back over... More

Description
We wanted to create a friendly, welcoming place where a smile goes a long way! It's about exploring the wonderful foods from around the globe and opening our ears to music from around the world. Giraffes are so tall they see a different view of the world. We LOVE fresh ideas. Giraffe is operated by the original founders Juliette and Russel Joffe and Andrew Jacobs who all have an active role in the day to day management of the business. Giraffe was acquired in March 2013 by Tesco as part of its strategy to utilise some of the space in their larger stores, creating retail destinations that offer customers, in particular families, a compelling experience outside of their weekly shopping trip.
