Unlike the preferred food of its herbivore namesake, the restaurant has something for everyone, from hearty all day breakfast, ‘croque’ giraffe and gourmet sandwiches; to schnitzel, stir-fry and quesadilla.

Giraffe joins Starbucks, Burger King and Leon in the international departure lounge with a host of new openings, including popular favourites Pret a Manger and The Windmill Pub, plus new tastes itsu, Cabin, Coast to Coast, Harris + Hoole, Halo champagne bar and the first ever James Martin Kitchen joining the menu soon.

Welcoming the opening of Giraffe at Stansted, M.A.G Retail Director Beth Brewster said:

“Giraffe is a very exciting brand and I’m delighted to welcome their international tastes onto the menu at Stansted as part of our £80million transformation to upgrade facilities and provide passengers with more choice.
