Five star brunch before marathon shopping session, really friendly staff and comfy seating. Food was fab, and the mango cocktails were superb- took the edge off the shopping anyway! Btw if you play Pokemon it's between two pokestops which is always a bonus!

The only good thing to say was the food came out very quick and was very nice, however the table service was awful. They were slow and forgetful, not very attentive especially when I asked for my bill as I said I needed to dash to catch a train, which I didn't end up getting as they forgot to bring... More

The first let down was the shortened menu due to a future menu change. The 2nd was the lack of house red, recommended an alternative but to find that wasn't available. The 3rd was the included 10% tip in the final bill. I prefer to choose and leave as cash any tips. Despite that, the food we had was enjoyable... More

With a great menu and very friendly staff, this is a superb place for lunch. The vegetarian choices are excellent. Staff seem genuinely proud of what they are serving. Very popular so you might have a bit of a wait!

Decent restaurant with reasonable prices, nice starter of chicken gyozas which were very tasty and my main of chicken burger with sweet potato fries were very nice. Service is sometimes slow here but food is good and rarely disappoints.

The menu is quite varied and there will definitely be something for everyone. I'm a fairly fussy eater and they were happy to accommodate my requests. It did get quite busy and service was slower as a result but as long as you're not in a rush it's fine.

We popped in for Sunday tea before a concert as previous visits had resulted in an excellent experience. This time wished we hadn't bothered. The place was very quiet with only two other tables occupied and it soon became clear as to why. A lot of things on the menu were not available however we persevered. We waited then waited... More

Another restaurant to go on my banned list I'm afraid. Good food, good service, overpriced cocktail as mostly ice but what earns the poor rating is the addition of a 10% service charge. You can't buy a meal without someone bringing it to you so why charge extra for that. Saying it is optional doesn't help as many people don't... More

The restaurant itself is lovely, its clean and modern. My issue is with the food. It's ok. Not amazing, not minding blowing, but decent food. We ordered the halloumi and falafel burger, brown rice with chicken and a burrito. The burger, I felt could be improved, especially the falafel could have been firmer, the patties were too soft for my... More

I've just been for lunch with my daughter and granddaughter, first of all my daughter was fobbed off with sliced white bread instead of the toasted sourdough that was on the menu. I had to leave to get back to work, paid the bill then daughter was charged for my granddaughters dessert, despite the fact I'd already paid £1 more... More

We wanted to create a friendly, welcoming place where a smile goes a long way! It's about exploring the wonderful foods from around the globe and opening our ears to music from around the world. Giraffes are so tall they see a different view of the world. We LOVE fresh ideas. Giraffe is operated by the original founders Juliette and Russel Joffe and Andrew Jacobs who all have an active role in the day to day management of the business. Giraffe was acquired in March 2013 by Tesco as part of its strategy to utilise some of the space in their larger stores, creating retail destinations that offer customers, in particular families, a compelling experience outside of their weekly shopping trip.
