Eventually found an empty table only for a member of staff to come over and say our daughter couldn't sit in the booth and anyway... More

Both waitresses were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us, both cocktails we ordered (bramble garden and mango mule) were some of the freshest I've ever tasted, couldn't fault the food well done!!

I noticed that Giraffe had added a few interesting dishes to their brunch menu recently so decided to try them out. My wife and I decided to share 2 dishes and opted for the smashed avo with chilli on toast, with an added poached egg, and the Surfs Up sandwich, with added potato wedges. Visually, the avo on toast was... More

First time for me at Giraffe and it strikes me as pretty middle ground in its offering. The menu is eclectic bordering on a bit random.

I like Giraffe as a chain. The menu is varied and the food is always good. However, this place stands out thanks tot he wonderful workforce they have. They're a happy and engaged bunch who are really keen to provide a good customer experience. Fantastic!
