My wife and I visited the Fat Giraffe yesterday at lunchtime. Although more a `cafe` than a resturant the food (allday breakfast) was excellent, & well presented. All food was cooked to order in good time . We will be going again , perhaps to their Tapas nights.

Food was ok, service from the waitress good, however the attitude from the owner to the paying customers appalling! Extremely disappointed, I have received better service from staff at a fast food restaurants. Needless to say I WILL NOT be visiting the fat giraffe again.

Myself and my family visited for some lunch to say we were disappointed was an understatement. The food was ok for a cafe, however the service was terrible. Sides were ordered that did not arrive. Then coffee was ordered with no explanation as to where this was after 20 minutes my Dad went to pay and said rather politely he... More

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
