Good happy-hour drinks and burgers in super-convenient location

Giraffe is across from major train and bus hubs as well as close to some serious shopping districts in Bath, so its location is prime.

The food was delicious. I recommend the bbq duck appetizer and the Giraffe burger. Also, water was free, there was a large kids menu and cold milk available.

I visited here with two work friends before we started work. The decor is amazing and food is quite good. We had good beer recommendations from the waiter and he was attentive by doing a check back in the first five minutes of us having our meals. The £6.95 lunch deal is really good value as I had the chicken... More

The food was delicious, delivered promptly. The restaurant is in a great location just along from the station and a stones throw from the bulk of the shops. Although I enjoyed the meal, I didn't feel welcome.

A great spot for a quick, good quality, and reasonably priced meal. The cocktails were half prices until 7pm, and there were special offers. There is a bunless burger option for those of us who don't want bread, and the sweet potato fries were delicious! A great spot for friends, a family meal, or a drink at the bar.

Giraffe is always fun, good food, good service, but there was a 30 minute delay in the food coming. We had been warned of that and luckily we weren't in a hurry.

The place is roomy and has lots of natural light. It's a great location for the family to eat before getting back on the train. Service was friendly, efficient and welcoming. The food was very good. I especially liked the burrito. And the cold beer.

We had sat down at a table in Pizza Express but it was full of other uncleared tables, was very noisy and the staff looked totally uninterested. So, we quietly left and stumbled upon Giraffe. Lovely cosy clubby décor, a clever curvy banquette that creates private feeling booths, lovely, welcoming, helpful staff and a really inviting menu. Our food was... More

Met my son in Giraffe for a bar buddy before getting train home. Liz behind the bar was a breath of fresh air. Looked after us, chatted and entertained us whilst continually cleaning watching for customers arriving and serving others. A great asset to your business.
