A little gem in Ramsgate

We have always used The Galley for our breakfasts whenever we stay in Ramsgate and have never been disappointed. The friendly reception that we receive each time has encouraged us to recommend The Galley to others. Sunday, last (22 March) 14 of us were staying Ramsgate to celebrate a birthday. 3 of... read more

Small and a bit cramped inside but lovely to sit outside on a sunny day. Very good home cooked food.

a good quality friendly place with great views over the harbour. Need to remember what they are and try not to present the food with a 70's style flair that doesn't suit. Should rely on the obvious quality of the product (and they'd save a fortune on icing sugar)

A great little place to take the traditional english breakfast with fabulous views of Ramsgate Harbour. Of course you need a sunny day,or at least dry, to dine outside.

I visited here for the first time last year in the summer (2014). I ordered the crab salad. I don't think I've EVER ordered a SALAD while out and about before, but I love crab so.... I took the plunge. I received a fully dressed crab with a bowl of nice greens - as expected! What wasn't really expected was... More

Went for brunch here, attracted by a board advertising all day breakfasts and as it was a sunny day, it's a perfect spot to sit on one of their outdoor tables. Good value for money for nice home cooked grub with lovely proprietors. Will visit again.

This is the second time we have been here for lunch and we were not disappointed. It is a beautiful cafe by the harbour, has little tables outside ( with blankets) to watch the world go by. The owners were very friendly and attentive. We had crab salad, the crab was delicious, and his was served with huge slices of... More

Went here for Sunday brunch. Have been on many occasions and it never fails to impress. Staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The full English breakfast was cooked to perfection and very tasty. The coffee was a delight and even though it was January it was wonderful to sit outside and watch the harbour and the... More

I go there a couple of times a month, they do a sausage sandwich to die for, thick cut bread with quality sausages, does me for the day. Great friendly service with lovely surroundings, something simple like toast and marmalade is served with great style on lovely crockery. And the views of the harbour are stunning. Highly recommended 5 stars.
