This was the first time we had been to The Galley. We had a wonderful time, the food was fantastic, the venue was great, I was surprised at how big the place actually was! It was full of character. The place was packed, but the staff were still plentiful. Ugur was the perfect host, he seemed to find time to... More

We visited the Galley for our Valentine's Day celebrations. The food and service was fantastic. We both opted for the Red Mullet to start and the Hake for main. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The Hake was amazingly moist and tender. The service was very welcoming and friendly. Amazing value for money.

Thoroughly recommend The Galley. The staff are very friendly and on hand to give advice and recommendations from the menu. The menu is a real treat with many different options to suit everyone. Great, home cooked feel to the place. Do not miss this restaurant.

We were frequent visitors to the Ipswich restaurant but this was the first time we had been to the Woodbridge restaurant. The food was excellent and we were superbly hosted and entertained by Ugur. A selection of starters for our table of 4, with the chicken in the kebab beautifully cooked. The meze was good value with wonderful home made... More

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
