Great staff, excellent food - well prepared, nicely presented and interesting. Some imaginative combinations, and some excellent, inventive vegetarian options. The best edamame bean starter, in a chilli, salt and garlic sauce, I think I've tasted! Great atmosphere too. First time I've been here, and I'll definitely be returning!

The staff were very pleasant and we had good service. Food a little disappointing - sharing nachos were not very big and maybe it's because I ordered the superfood salad but it was very bland with just loads of green peas!

Ate here as a coeliac. Sifted through the nutrition menu for what was available. Ended up having a rubbery, dog snelling slab of beef with 3 new potatoes. The food was dwarfed on the plate and must have made the chefs laugh as it left the kitchen. The listing says gluten free options available, but there really is nothing else... More

Staff were friendly & there was nice atmosphere. We had meal from set menu, which was really nice, although not over large! Not able to get the 10% off showing theatre tickets from set menu & gratuity added, instead we left our own tip.

I wouldn't rush back neither would I say dont go there as it is what it is. Five of us went for breakfast at about 10 am on a Monday and it was empty. Service was OK and the food was OK but for the price you could get better elsewhere. The flat white coffee was lukewarm with little taste,... More

We arrived at 2:00pm on a Saturday lunchtime and were seated upstairs. All was fine until the chips arrived really under cooked so both had to be sent back. The staff were eating their lunch on the next table which was ok but felt like we didn't really matter any more by the staff who were still working on the... More

We love giraffe. It never fails to hit the spot. We go as a family and I will often take my little boy there as a treat especially when they have their 'kids eat free' offers on. The menu is diverse and as I like to eat healthily I love the selection there is for me. My 5yr will demolish... More

We visited here for a special occasion, but wish we had gone else where. It was very cold so had to still wear our coats. The Staff were not attentive or caring which made us feel unwanted. We won't be returning

Good choice of food from around the world.-seemed excellent value for burgers even though Gourmet Burger Co next door (and twice the price). Located next to other food chains and chosen as seemed cosy--- Carluccios seemed way overpriced Downside no heating FEBRUARY !(little fan heaters being used so kept coats on ) Note service charge included can be deleted though

Thank Graham T
