We went on the on spec as we were in Topsham and managed to get in for lunch as we were early. Others weren't so lucky. We had the two course set lunch menu which was great value for such good quality food. Definitely one for the books to visit another time.

My husband, son and I visited the Galley on Saturday evening. We have never been disappointed at the galley but this was such an excellent meal, for all of us, that I felt I should write a review. This summer we spent two weeks in France and had a short break in Marlow to eat at Tom Kerridges famous 2... More

Having chose to eat here purely on it's TripAdvisor ranking we were certainly not disappointed. The food was very high quality and delicious - we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Very friendly service - please let Hannah know she did a great job for her first day. We'll be sure to come back again soon.

We wandered past and noticed the rather lovely sounding menu in the window, so decided to check it out - what a treat. First, the set menu at £16 was tremendous value for money. We were treated to some wonderful fat and juicy olives, with bread service (Olive bread, sun dried tomato bread, a butter and salt concoction - all... More

We enjoyed a lunchtime visit on recommendation from other trip advisors and was not disappointed. The food was exceptional and the service very attentive. The lunch time menu represented excellent value for money at £16pp. I had the pan fried mackerel followed by the plaice which were both delicious followed by a chocolate torte for pudding. On the next occasion... More

We made a second lunchtime visit to this lovely place for a family lunch. Two of us ordered from the set menu and two from the main menu. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The cuisine is not too way out but inventive enough to feel you have had a special dining experience. Even the bread is delicious! The service... More

Great wine selection and delicious deserts. Prices are in line with the service and food preparation. Well decorated small restaurant that can impress the most... More

This is the second time we have visited and certainly not the last. Being a late booking we were lucky to get in, thus finding ourselves on the 1st floor, seemed to us a bonus, lovely view, cosy room, perfect. The food though, well it's the best fish restaurant in Devon we know, beautiful. The portions are such you can... More
