The decor and atmosphere is very quaint and homey, the staff owners are very friendly and helpful, even to the point of letting us know where we could source the meat that she had used in the...

This was my third visit to the Fat Giraffe and I would recommend anyone in the local area to give it a go. The staff are friendly and it’s a lovely little place. The last two times I have been I have ordered off the specials menu and have not been let down. This visit I had the pulled pork... More

We booked a table for Fathers day, we were seated near the door which was quite drafty but our request to close the door was upheld. My husband and I ordered a cheese and onion pie which was good and was rather a large portion for our appetites. One of my children ordered 'fish goujons' which turned out to be... More

we've been meaning to try this place for a long time and today had the opportunity. To find a good standard non chain, more of the same costa / starbucks type can be tricky. This café bar offers locally sourced, tasty food. Only been for lunch but found a reasonably priced menu. As for drinks my cappuccino was delicious and... More

I popped into the Giraffe at lunchtime, as I had an hour to kill, and wanted to sit in comfort for my lunch, rather than slum it in my car. What a great decision! Faced with quite a menu, I eventually settled for a roast ham sandwich, just resisting the spicy butternut squash soup...but only just! Other serious contenders given... More
