Finding ourselves in Woodbridge, we consulted Trip Advisor who listed The Galley as Turkish. We like Turkish but this was so much more! The lunchtime fixed 3 course light lunch was delicious, well priced and so good that we plan to return for Meze. See my picture of the excellent Cougette Fritter starter. Barry The The

A friend booked this up for a group of us. I was a bit reluctant as thought too much fish (I don't eat fish) but was so so wrong. The specials menu was like no other, I could hardly decide what to have. Food was superb, price reasonable - at the top end of the market but given the quality... More

My wife and I stopped in at the Galley on a sunny evening mid week. Sitting outside in the sunshine was lovely and we had the Fabulous Lamb Stew and the Mullet. Both were cooked to perfection. The lamb was amazingly tender and melted in the mouth.

We ate here twice whilst staying in woodbridge. The first time we had the early evening menu which was very limited, but we were tempted back by the full menu. It was a good balance between formal dining and welcoming to famlies. Both waiters were friendly to our seven year old. The owner was there the second time we went... More

Had lunch next door and noticed the menu at the Galley which looked fantastic. Had the Gressingham duck. Was mouth watering. Great service. Love the location up on the hill.

My wife and I called after a day's sightseeing in the area and we were the first diners of the evening just after 6.30pm. The waiter gave us the a la carte menu and we then ordered our meal. Shortly afterwards some other diners arrived and sat at the adjacent table. We heard them order some food that was not... More

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. The service was great and nothing too much trouble. We even got a tour of the upstairs and cellar after our meal. Everything wonderful we... More

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.
