The food was good, although the burgers we had were in very red coloured buns with no explanation - tasted ok though. Deserts lovely.

We ended up taking dessert away with us. We asked move inside when a table became available and were left in the cold until we went inside ourselves to discover four empty tables where we could have gone. The food was meagre and mediocre and the vegetables mushy and overcooked. Very disappointing.

It had always been a favourite in previous visits but we were extremely disappointed this time. The layout meant the tables were all close together so we could hear conversations of those around us including bad language in front of a 4 and 7 year old. The service was very good and our orders were taken quickly and food arrived quickly. Although there was plenty of good main options for children the sides were limited to swap unless you bought extra side orders on top. The adult main burger meals were disappointing, they arrived on a huge plate but the burgers themselves were small as were the portions of chips and they looked a bit lost on the plate. It didn't feel very good value for money when it was costing £12.50 and almost needed something else to go with it such as a bit of salad. Overall we felt it was too expensive for what it was and probably wouldn't return again.

Other than that everything else wasn't great. Steak was burnt and the second replacement undercooked. Chips were cold. Naan bread forgotten to be served with curry and had to ask for more teriyaki sauce as there was hardly any with the salmon. Service was good to start with but then waited ages until someone came to take our food order, then had to wait longer for food. I feel these were the result of hardly any staff, there were maybe 2 or 3 people.

My only criticism really would be is that the food comes out too quickly! There just is no time to breath between courses! Last time we went, main courses were arriving before the starters had been cleared! Otherwise I love the whole thing and everyone is always so friendly 😊

Pink Gin 2 for 1 cocktails, lovely.

It was so busy and noisy. The tables were crammed so close together we felt that we couldn't relax. Our original table was placed next the bar, not even a metre away. There were people lined up at the bar, the lady who seated us moved the table as much as she could but one of our party couldn't sit so we requested to move. Whilst we weren't next to the bar it was still obvious that as many tables had been fitted in as possible. I would only return at quieter times. Staff were lovely and attentive

Full price was £70+ for mass produced food, desserts are over priced and bought in or so simple my grandson who happens to be 4 could have made them.

The steak was so tough I could hardly cut it even with a steak knife, I couldn't eat it in the end it was so bad. The Chips were disgusting, couldn't eat those either, my friend opted for a salad, but they had no dressing ? (what a chef that can't make a salad dressing). Won't be going back in a hurry I'm afraid

It is false advertising for Giraffe’s online menu to claim it caters for coeliacs just to entice customers through the door.
