Granted I have not been here in quite some time but we used to be regulars. The food in the day is really good and what you would expect from a cafe with prices to match. In the evening it's a lovely menu with excellent choices. This is one of my favourites and will be visiting again when I'm in... More

I had a fantastic meal here on Friday with my mother as we are here on a family history visit. Claire managed to fit us in as she had a busy evening of tapas booked in. My dietary needs were catered for with no fuss.. We had a wonderful evening listening to live music and drinking fine wine! We will... More

We went for lunch at the weekend and found the place to be really cosy and friendly. The menu was great but we chose from the specials board which was clearly cooked to order. Food was delicious and portions were big, so much so that we had to take some of their homemade cakes with us. The staff were lovely... More

What a catchy name with none connecting great homely/country deco. Was quite busy but plenty of tables available. I picked a large farm house table, with very slim bench, we were asked sometime after we had ordered, as she served our tea's would we mind moving if a larger party came in, (we dont mind at all) but sadly few,...

Just finished my breakfast in The Fat Giraffe! ..and I have to say it was very tasty and good value. The staff were really friendly and the place was very well decorated & clean. The service was a little bit slow but when the food arrived it was worth waiting that little bit extra for. Highly recommended

Had lunch in this café/restaurant with family, all enjoyed the food, kids menu and adult menu, had a different than normal choice, well presented and tasty food. There is also evening menus which would suit a couple out for a nice evening, with something slightly different on the menu.

We called in for lunch whilst we were staying in the area and thought it was very pleasant. It was quite packed so we had a bit of a wait, but the sandwiches were very nice and well presented. The prices were quite reasonable for food and drinks. Staff were friendly and pleasant.

Me and my partner went for a breakfast here on Sunday late morning, the food was absolutely lovely! Great value for a full English, unlimited pot of tea AND orange juice, it was the perfect amount of food too as we didn't feel too stuffed and not hungry as well so just the right balance! The wait was a little... More
