I selected this restaurant on the Internet (I have never visited the area before) based on the interesting menu, and on the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was an experience where I would run out of superlatives to describe it fully The telephone booking I made left me with a comfortable feeling that we had made a good choice. This... More

I live in Woodbridge, so I have researched this review quite comprehensively -- in fact, I've probably eaten at The Galley fifty times. Both in terms of style and cuisine, this restaurant is Turkish and European influenced. Either the owner (Ugur) or his deputy (Saul) will greet you warmly, and the service will normally be attentive and personal. The cuisine... More

If you want to have a family or a business meal, the wine cellar can seat 20 or so people easily. It is bright, cosy and private. The wine cellar would not be a suitable venue for anyone with limited physical ability as the steps are steep and the toilet facilities are on an upper floor. The main restaurant is... More

On arrival the owner took it upon himself to shake my hand, I don't know whether he was trying to confirm his place as the alpha male, but for some reason it seemed to be who the hardest hand shake, very strange indeed. The meze had a large amount of paprika and chopped parsley sprinkled around the plate, weird. The... More

We always try to address any issues that our guests have with the food we serve, and had you informed us of your thoughts at the time we would... More

This is now our 5th visit here. Ugur and his fellow staff are super friendly and the food is superb (see the pics). They recommend what is in season and have a great sense of humour. We had mixed mezze starter and various mains. Overall 10 out of 10 for everything - hence the return visit 2 days later... Keep... More

Everything was excellent from the moment we arrived. Great service, superb food and wine - I could have had a main course portion of the Welsh rarebit starter it was so delicious, although the sea bass was gorgeous. We were all too full for dessert, but at the end of our meal a slice of delicious cake arrived at our... More
