Giraffe

Giraffe's all about freshly-cooked food served to the sound of great music.

This is Giraffe’s biggest restaurant with stunning views over the Thames, and if that’s not enough, there’s also free WiFi for diners.

The menu – inspired by the best flavours from around the world – includes must-have brunches, stacked-high burgers, fresh salads, steak & grills together with hand-roasted coffee, healthy smoothies and a selection of cocktails, beers and global wines.

Little ones can choose from their own list of tasty, child-sized favourites to tuck into. Kids also get served first at Giraffe to avoid any tearful hunger pangs, and if the colourful, bold and buzzy atmosphere doesn’t keep them busy, there are plenty of balloons and colouring books to go round too. 

Drop in or book a table. It’s popular so there might be a queue but it moves quickly.
