The Giraffe concept is simple; it's about freshly cooked global food, great people and world music. The menu - inspired by the best flavours from around the world, including the East, Australia, The Americas and Europe - includes must-have brunches, hand-roasted coffee, healthy and made-to-order smoothies, nibbles, main meals, tempting desserts, amazing cocktails, beers and carefully selected wines. Brunch includes Rude Health's organic muesli and a fresh fruit bowl, stacked pancakes served with banana, blueberries and maple syrup, as well as full brunch plates of eggs and maple-roast bacon or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on a toasted poppy seed bagel. Try one of the extensive mouthwatering lunch or dinner options such as the super healthy veggie and oregano feta salad, the bestselling chicken schnitzel burger or the tangy and spicy turkey enchilada. Sharing plates for the table include mezze nibbles, wok-fried edamame, Cajun-spiced chicken wings and hot, cheesy garlic bread on a skewer. The restaurant design is warm and effective, coupled with funky world music played at just the right level, allowing conversation to come first. Customers range from colleagues enjoying a few drinks and a meal after work, couples sharing a table for two, families with kids and groups of friends having a party, to those going solo and relaxing with a paper. Whether it's for a coffee at the bar, a quick bite or a big meal, the Giraffe experience is truly for everybody. Giraffe runs a great offer from 5pm until 7pm, Monday to Friday, with their 'Giraffe time' menu, which features a starter and main course for only £7.25. They also offer 50 per cent off selected wines, beers and cocktails from Monday to Thursday, 5pm until 7pm - perfect for relaxing after work.
