We've passed this restaurant lots of times but thankfully decided to pop in one Sunday lunchtime. Sat outside (in October!) and had a lovely meal- we ordered from the 'light' menu, which was plenty for us. Delicious food, especially the baked yoghurt! The service was friendly and we were made to feel very welcome......so we'll be back next time we... More

It is a very long time since we ate at The Galley and a revisit has been overdue for many years. The welcome was warm and amusing. We were carefully looked after but the service was never overbearing. The mixed mezze starter was in parts great and the rest stunning, beautifully presented and really delicious. Our mains were actually exceptional.... More

We decided to book a table due to the interesting ecclectic menu and consistently good reviews. The restaurant was quirky and run by the charasmatic, friendly Ugur who is passionate about his establishment - personally monitoring what was happening on a busy Saturday night and checking that guests were satisfied. A relatively new hire was serving us who was building... More

We booked for a Saturday night. Lots of small groups and couples. Good atmosphere and general hubub. Long wait for service, although apologies were made I overheard several tables moaning about the slow service.The drinks took a long time. However our waiter was lovely and very friendly. Food was excellent. I had a rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked.... More

We visited the Galley to share a meal with some friends before Christmas. The service was outstanding (perfect balance between warm and welcoming but efficient). Our food was delicious. I had the Dorado fish which was cooked to perfections and beautifully moist. The others all had the Fabulous Lamb Stew ... And the verdict was it did indeed live up... More

As the title infers, it was indeed a stress free day for Doric Ladies at the Galley. We had a party of 14 and preordered a 2 course lunch before arrival - Turkish Lamb Stew which was 'melt in the mouth' so tender and tasty whilst the Sea Bass was equally delicious. Desserts and coffee/tea to follow. Perfect. It all... More

I had an excellent meal at the Galley. As always the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and although it is quite expensive it is worth it because you are paying for very good quality. The dessert of fruit, nuts and mascarpone cheese was absolutely delicious. I would recommend the restaurant as a real treat.

Great atmosphere in enchanting old building on Woodbridge's Market Hill and the food and service do not disappoint either. We all had lobster which was perfectly cooked and served and is a speciality of this restaurant and I would commend the wine list also.

fantastic food and fantastic service from staff that don't just put the food down in front of you! A proper dining experience. Not the cheapest around, but you certainly get what you pay for here! Have returned several times and will do so again!
