We lunched here yesterday with our son, daughter-in-law, grandson (almost 3) and 7 month old granddaughter. We received a very warm welcome and felt that the owner and staff were very child friendly. The food was delicious, I had a beautifully cooked sea bream followed by Turkish delight ice cream, which was awesome! A happy experience all round.

We were there on spec for a Saturday lunch. The portions were more than ample, the service friendly, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. It wasn't cheap, though £40 a head included 2 glasses of wine each. I and my veggie husband were very happy, full and contented. It's a shame we live well over an hour away. It... More

We had dinner here last week as we were in search of lobster and fries! The Galley serve lobster done in various ways - we chose lobster thermidor and I have to say the lobster was very sweet and the sauce delicious. It came with a salad and generally new potatoes, although they kindly cooked delicious chips at our request.... More

This restaurant always seems busy with diners so my husband, mother and I thought we would give it a go. We tried the salmon Mille feuille starter which was at it sounds, with layers of pastry and smoked salmon which my mother thought unnecessarily filling and not a brilliant pairing with good smoked salmon. My beetroot and pear with Manchester... More

I heard about this restaurant from a friend and made a reservation on the day in person. The owner and his 'Front Of House' were extremely welcoming. When we arrived with our 7 year old daughter the FOH immediately made an impact on my daughter making her laugh and feel like one of the guests not an addition to the... More

I visited the Galley during the week with work colleagues. Our starters consisted of chicken kebabs, duck liver. They were all delicious and perfect. For mains we had the fabulous lamb stew, loin of pork and sea bass - we couldn't decide which was was the best! The service was perfect and the wine recommendation perfectly complimented the meal.

Very expensive for the quality of food, didn't enjoy the atmosphere and the service wads very average. Would expect much better for those prices.
