"They gave us the confidence to go for more 'destinational' and strategic sites... this was transformational for the business."
Andrew Jacobs, COO, Giraffe

Giraffe is a fast growing restaurant business with 45 sites across the UK. Giraffe provides family-friendly all day dining in a relaxed atmosphere with great customer service.

In 2004, when the group had seven restaurants, we provided funds to help accelerate a roll-out of the proven Giraffe concept of global cuisine and world music, initially in London and the South East.

In March 2013 we sold our stake to Tesco. The enterprise value of the whole transaction is £48.6 million, which represents a multiple of 8x RCP's original valuation.
