Guildford's Giraffe restaurant closes today

Published at 6:00am 16th June 2019.

Guildford's Giraffe restaurant is set to close today. 

It's the second restaurant to shut on the High Street in just two weeks, after the Chilli Pickle announced it's closure at the end of last month. 

It's reported the move is part of a company restructuring programme and staff are being consulted on alternative roles within the group. 

Guildford Borough Council said they were "sorry" to see the closure of the restaurant, but insist Guildford "remains propsperous town for businesses to open.

Cllr Caroline Reeves, Leader of Guildford Borough Council, said:

“We have recently seen the opening of 7 new independent shops. Guildford has a thriving day and night time economy which is worth around £5bn.

“In some areas such as retail we’re currently bucking the vacancy rate trend, with 7.2% against a national average of 9.2%.

"We are the only town in Surrey to hold the prestigious Purple Flag award (like Blue Flag for beaches) for a safe and diverse evening and night out and our regeneration projects in the town will enhance this further"
