Fourteen of us met for lunch and the staff coped without any fuss at all. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu is varied and there are blackboard specials too. I enjoyed a salmon fillet very much. The fish and chips look immense and I'll probably go for that next time but there's plenty to choose from. Everything is freshly... More

As a vegetarian, I am used to seeing one or two choices on the menu. Here, there was about 5 options! It was a celebration meal with my family - 9 of us - and we all enjoyed our meals. Only problem was, portions were so large, it was a job to eat it all! Service was with a smile... More

Just enjoyed a fantastic lunch here with a pint of excellent beer. Very friendly staff with good service. As it was my first time I watched all the food coming out into the restaurant and the portions are huge. I did not have starters but all 5 on the table next to me did and they could easily have been... More

We had a meal here recently and noticed a definate low morale with the staff. The menu is dull nothing you couldnt make better yourself. Prices appear to have increased, portions have become smaller. The tomato sauce is awful runny and pale it spoilt the chips. The seating is particularly poor and the table rocked until i stuck something under... More

I am happy to confirm that no great changes have been made to our prices, menu or portion sizes since the Galley Hall changed hands last August and the vast majority of our customers are entirely satisfied. As you will see from our TripAdvisor reviews, during that period we have received 11 five-star reviews, 8 four-star reviews and three 3-star... More

Had lunch yesterday. There was traditional pub gayer plus nice extras. I had mushroom stroganoff which was huge & delicious. Helpful, friendly staff abd lots of interesting photos and artefacts dotted around. I would certainly like to visit again and try other dishes.

We were very well served and they were very accommodating to little ones - allowing him to run around after his meal :-)

Visited on a busy Valentine's evening, service was great, as was the food. Will certainly be back one day, mushy peas were to die for!! Made to feel very welcome.

We were perhaps unlucky dining at lunchtime when they were obviously pushed and could have used more staff. We had all heard good things about the Galley Hall so were looking forward to our group lunch there. We were put in a very pleasant function room away from the bar as we were quite a few in number. It was... More
