Family friendly and great service

You couldn't ask for more - family friendly, great atmosphere, super service and friendly staff. The food was what you'd expect from Giraffe but the location and staff made this the best one we've been to.

As I am a vegan I often have difficulty finding something to eat let alone something interesting but, I have never had that problem here and they are very accommodating to variations to a meal. Super cocktails, with and without alcohol, various specials, excellent staff, live music on certain nights (not my cup of tea and way to,loud), service can... More

7 for brunch at noon on Saturday before a rugby game . Initially service was a little slow but once served it was very attentive . 4 had full brunch which was fine albeit not the hottest , it seems that they were waiting on beans as they were piping hot . Pleasant atmosphere would visit again

Entered to lively music and friendly staff. Great stuff. The children were well catered for with colouring bits. The food was not as good as it might have been- my sons wedges were raw in the middle which was a pity! I think I'd give them another shot but remains a shame not to get basic food cooked well.

Okay family tea. Quite hard with little ones who just wanted to go up and down stairs, food okay, not the cheapest. Drinks nice and cold.

Food was excellent, but I was surprised when I received our bill, they had a 10 per cent gratuity added to it which I wasn't pleased about. Is this normal in Giraffe restaurants?

The bar staff and waiters at Giraffe are amazing, their customer service is second to none. Also until I worked for Little Southgate I loved the food! However after seeing how the chefs and kitchen staff leave the employee bathroom in the corridors I'll never eat here again! They never wash their hands and are disgusting! Do yourselves a favour...

Decent food and friendly staff. Visited on a busy Saturday lunchtime and we were served in more than reasonable time and the waitress was very good. Food was decent, but a little over priced for what it was.... Everything was "marked up" £2 or £3 against the average and given that this Place had no "experience gimmick" like TGI/Hard Rock/PH,...

Return visit on a busy Saturday. Very busy when we arrived and told a table would be 15 minutes and to wait and have a drink at the bar - lovely cocktails!! Great meal - the salads are awesome and my daughter always opts for the duck stir fry - tasty food, fantastic friendly service, great atmosphere and (again!) lovely... More
