Based in the Southgate development, you’ll find us just across from both the bus and train stations. Inspired by New York’s clubby coffee shops and restaurants, this giraffe is divided over 2 floors with a fab cosy mezzanine level where you can chill out morning, noon or night overlooking the central bar which is perfect for a quick espresso or cocktail any time of the day.

Our table was booked for 8.30pm on Saturday evening. Sat eating our starters, quarter of the way through and out come our mains...... not at all ready. No apologies, nothing. As soon as our mains were out, kitchen were cleaning down and lights off by 9.25pm no offer of desert. Disgusted and won't go again. Poor customer service. Don't book tables so late if you shut early.......

Food was good, came quickly, nice and hot and flavoursome.
Service didn’t come with a smile, girl looked pretty miserable and definitely did not want to be there. It took ages for our order to be placed, and then once we received our food we couldn’t get anyones attention to get further drinks or offered dessert. When we did get her attention it was like we were a nuisance to the waitress. Felt awkward.
Shame as been in the past, and always been good so was disappointed.

As we were sat on a table in the corner, so the waitress couldn't really see us and seemed to keep forgetting about us. Asked for no mayo on burger and there was still mayo on it. Prices were good (for Bath) and student discount is good aswell. Was very quiet but still rather loud because of music.

Giraffe was okay, I wouldn’t rush back. We booked a table but they have no table out aside for us when we got there we got shoved up the top and it was ridiculously loud and people were brushing past us. Super frustrating because I also expect a decent table when booking in advance. It was SO and as I am hard of hearing it was a real struggle for me, so loud that the waitress couldn’t hear us to order. The food was play but very salty (I love salt) but this was too much. I paid £3 (or close to) for a tiny piece of garlic bread that was so salty I couldn’t eat it. I will probably give them another chance in the future but no time soon

Changes to the Covid tier system were introduced on the day of our booking. A member of staff left a kind voicemail stating that the restaurant was closing with immediate effect despite changes to tiers not becoming a legal requirement until midnight that night. We were really disappointed that Giraffe made the choice to close so promptly as we'd travelled for an hour to get to Bath with the specific intention of dining at Giraffe. I appreciated the voicemail, and understand why they closed, but none of the other local shops or restaurants seemed to shut early. I have very specific dietary requirements and had checked the menu out prior to travelling to Bath. We ended up going home without dining due to my dietary requirements and wasted a lot of money on travelling to and from Bath. We usually love the Bath Giraffe restaurant... The food is always perfect, as is the environment and service.

The only question I have is tier 2 i thought you could only go for meals with your bubble. There were a group of girls who were clearly the same age and friends out for a meal in the restaurant. Why can they have a meal together. I went for a spa break with a friend and for our meal we had to sit on sperate tables. Any way maybe im wrong .

Service was ok. One server was great but the rest couldn’t care less. The music was too loud and the place wasn’t very clean. Went here 3 years ago and loved it. Has really gone down hill since. Food was ok and came out within 10 minutes. Thought that was strange. Turns out my girlfriend got food poising from her nachos. Dont recommend sorry

First visit to Giraffe and will certainly be back. There was a super range of food on offer all of which was reasonably priced.
The staff were all lovely and the environment felt safe in these Covid times. Also the service was prompt
But not rushed at all.
Definitely recommend a visit.

Simply one of the best family meal outs we have experienced. Staff were attentive and prepared to go the extra mile. They even offered to charge my phone when I mentioned in conversation that it had gone flat. The food was delicious and the price was way below expectations.

Thank you to you all.

I had the vegan brunch, which is something I make myself and I do it better, I'm sorry to say. The tomatoes where barely roasted, the avocado had too much coriander in it yet was still flavourless and the tofu although well flavoured was only just warm.
