My daughter and i went to the Galley on a hot summers evening and sat outside. The staff were so welcoming and really friendly and very funny. It was lobster week, these were absoltely delicous.

We had a lovely meal at the Galley. The staff were friendly, explained the contents of the menu with great care and it was great to have a chat with Ugur the owner. His passion for food is plain to see and every course was a delight. We will be back in the Autumn.

Welcomed with a little banter, as remembered a previous joke with my younger son about paying, but this time for his brothers 21st celebration. The start of a great night. A selection of great dishes over two menus - an entire one of specials - with a flavour of the Mediterranean. Hummus and a scattering of fish/seafood starters and mains... More

The owner seems always to be there to give a warm welcome and to ensure everything goes well. The Mezze is a meal in itself and they seem not to mind if that is all you have to eat.

Well positioned bistro type restaurant overlooking a well used square much loved by wedding parties. Square has good pub, up market ladies shops and cafés. Menu was good although we had to request the lunchtime two and three course set menu. My friend informed me this is not unusual so be aware. That said when we got it the menu... More

Yet another exquisite meal at the Galley. Thanks so much ugr and sol for making us feel so welcome as always. We had lobster (amazing and the biggest I've seen) and skate wing (delicious). Starters were the cod fritters and fried anchovies, also very tasty. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Great evening! Superb host, food was gorgeous. I had the lobster, a friend had sea bass and the men had the pork belly as mains. Will definitely return as I think it was good value too!

We visited the Galley on Saturday night with friends and had a fantastic meal. I had the Anchovies which were delicious and the rest of the party could not look past the Chicken Kebabs which are fabulous. For mains we had the skate and the lobster both of which we cooked to perfection and everyone was raving about their meals.... More

Service was exemplary and the food was to die for, kir royal aperitif followed by lobster for my partner and fish cakes for me. A unrushed experience we were treated like we came in all the time, we will return... More

Enjoyed a coffee at The Galley. Proprietor was delightfully accommodating and maintained a good banter with staff and customers alike.
