Excellent service and good food in a lovely setting

We have eaten here often and have never been disappointed. Mid week it can be quiet but we like it like that. The 'soft' Turkish feel to the menu is just right yet there is a good enough choice to avoid these subtle dishes if you wish. There is always a house wine on offer at a very good... read more

We visited the galley on a glorious Friday evening and were able to sit outside and have a bit to eat. For starters we both had the Chicken Kebabs - this may sound like a non adventurous option but trust me you will be blown away. The Chicken is so succulent and tender and combined with the sauce it is... More

Exciting menu, delightful ambience, friendly and attentive staff and, most importantly, delicious food! As keen 'foodies' we thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The lobster bisque is to die for!

Having read the reviews on The Galley we decided we must try this restaurant. We chose the sharing meze to start, it was ok but not fantastic and in our opinion too large - probably a better starter for four. My main was the half a lobster - I am a lobster lover and normally only have fresh lobster but... More

We are so sorry you didn’t enjoy your meal with us. As we said at the time, it is always best to point out any issues you have with your meal at them time and then we can do everything we can to put things right. May we also point out that our Canadian lobsters are delivered live to us... More

Having not visited The Galley for a while, we decided to give Ugur and his staff at The Galley a Saturday night visit and were delighted that we made this choice. Upon entering we were given a very warm welcome and shown to a downstairs table. A simple request saw us moved without issue to an upstairs table (slightly warmer!)... More

As ever the welcome was warm and genuine (from Ugur and Sol), the surroundings interesting and comfortable the menu varied and mouthwatering and the food...well, as good as I can ever remember tasting....

I cannot praise this restaurant enough! absolutely phenomenal! We were at first worried as we had not made a booking as we had just heard from family that it was great, but as we entered we were offered a table and told it was no issue that we had not booked even though the downstairs area appeared to be filling...

Ate here last Saturday, and was impressed from the start. A very warm welcome, with friendly staff, and a Maitre D who was bubbly, and had a marvellous sense of humour. The food was superb. I can recommend the Chorizo Bubble & Squeak, and my Steak was tender and full of flavour. Overall our party enjoyed a magnificent evening, deciding... More
