Nicely cooked steak

A party of 25. Service a little slow but everyone do all have each course at the same time. Good pub grub, perfectly cooked steak but disappointing chicken. On the whole good food at reasonable price, pleasant staff and large portions good value for a pub.

Been here a few times now and certainly have no complaints. On this occasion our party opted for the roast turkey, lamb and burgers. All extremely good especially the Sunday roasts. Served up piping hot and as ever good portions. The real ales are spot on and thoroughly recommend the Galley Hall.

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your food on your most recent visits to The Galley Hall. I am extremely frustrated that instead of complaining at the time so that we could have rectified the problem, you chose instead to post a lengthy complaint online. We work hard to provide our customers with great service and high quality meals... More

Visited with 6 friends on easter sunday the resturant wasn't busy we didn't booked and was seated straight away. Food was nice however the lady who served us watched over us like a hawk.

I understand that we were able to accommodate you and your party at short notice on Easter Sunday in between bookings and that was explained to you before you were seated. If our waitress seemed a little over-attentive this was merely to ensure that there was no delay for the next booking. Incidentally, our Sunday roasts are priced at a... More

Enjoyed a fantastic meal here today with family. Very impressed. The whole place was packed and we could see why. Good food, generous portions and fab service. Attitude of staff very positive. I wasn't happy with my main course and the manager immediately returned it to the kitchen and it was replaced. Couldn't fault them.

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
