We came here for a Sunday breakfast. The waitress that greeted sat us down leaving us perplexed with 2 childrens menus. Eventually I got up to find a proper breakfast menu. The waitress that took our order was far more attentive but let down by...More

Large portions, fast service (maybe a little too fast our mains arrived before we finished our starter) the menu was new and they didn't have the drinks we wanted in yet !!!

Our first time visiting a giraffe restaurant and will more than likely be our last. We were seated straight away and taken our drinks orders which came rather swiftly. The waitress said she would be back in a min to take our food orders. 15...More

Nothing special about the meal and the drinks looked exotic but tasted weak and watery. We all had a burrito which was nice and hot but again tasteless and lacked flavour. When we received the bill it had a service charge added to the total...More

Food- variety of menu to choose from. It composed of international dishes! Price- is variable. Some are worth paying for what they asking, some seemed to be a bit pricey. Customer service skills- the waitresses we had on two different occasions were quite pushy when...More

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.
