Took my 1 adult and two teens for Saturday evening meal. Good food with decent selection of styles and attentive service. Wasn't very busy for Saturday evening which should have rung alarm bells but food was 7/10 generally. Downsides - small portions of chips, £3.50...More

Description
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.
