I had dinner tonight with my family at this fantastic restaurant. Where do I start ..., the owner is a lovely Guy, genuinely friendly with a great sense of humour and runs this place like clock work. I had the sea bass which was stunning, followed by white chocolate pana cotta, literally one of best deserts I have ever tasted.... More

What a gem! From the outside The Galley does not look much, in fact it appears quite downmarket, but for this birthday celebration lunch it was first class. Comfortable seating, attentive service (we did not have to ask for our coats to be taken and hung up), and outstanding food. The fish cakes, moules mariniere, Thai prawns, and scallops with... More

We had a wonderful evening in early December, the dessert of Bakewell tart was truly divine, we could not recommend more highly, this was our third visit and we love it!

We were invited to try a local white wine, which was a perfect match for our meal, and I have since located for future enjoyment! All... More

Both the food and the service recieved were totally amazing. We went there for a special birthday meal and we were not disappointed at all. The food was all fresh and the restaurant was clean too. Would recommend booking well in advance.

We visited for a Saturday lunch and opted for the set two courses @ £16. The Exe mussels in a chilli sauce was delicious and the pan roasted cod for main was filling enough for us not to want dessert. The service was friendly and efficient. The only slight whinge was that it was a bit chilly but it was... More

This is the second time in as many months that the four of us have eaten here, all 3 courses looked and tasted heavenly. The down side was this very cosy restaurant was ruined by the over powering smell of cooked fish & chips oil. On returning home all our clothes and hair needed to be washed as we smelt... More
