Very welcoming staff members and yummy food.

They have lobster week here, where they serve lobster in different sauces. The thin is we thought that lobster week meant a special offer but it didn't it just meant that it was lobster season. That said, our experience here was great. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing... read more

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.

Extract from owner of The Galley: Is a good meal all about the cooking? "Of course the food and the cooking always has to be the very best and the meal perfectly prepared to satisfy each individual customer. However a great restaurant experience is also about the atmosphere and hospitality. It matters to me that customers coming to The Galley... More

We had a delicious lunch with everyone really enjoying their choices. The person who greeted and served us was lovely, enthusiastic and accommodating. The only downside is they aren't really geared up for children (no baby changing facilities, steps to get in and no designated childrens' menu). However they looked after us very well, made sure we were comfortable and... More

We make periodic visits to The Galley. The service is always warm and friendly and they always remember you. I prefer their Turkish/middle eastern fayre - it's expertly cooked and always delicious. The turkish delight ice cream and the rice pudding are superb. I'm a bit more lukewarm about their more northern european dishes - ok but I wouldn't rave.... More

My wife and I went early last Tuesday evening and had a superb meal. We both had the lamb stew and the rice pudding for dessert, both of which were so full of flavour. The single waiter (it is a small restaurant) was efficient, charming and a great host. Have already recommended the Galley to a work colleague who will... More

The owner Ugur and his staff are very helpful about the menu and were attentive the whole evening. a number of us had the mezee for starters which was lovely and... More

We have eaten here often and have never been disappointed. Mid week it can be quiet but we like it like that. The 'soft' Turkish feel to the menu is just right yet there is a good enough choice to avoid these subtle dishes if you wish. There is always a house wine on offer at a very good price.... More

We visited the galley on a glorious Friday evening and were able to sit outside and have a bit to eat. For starters we both had the Chicken Kebabs - this may sound like a non adventurous option but trust me you will be blown away. The Chicken is so succulent and tender and combined with the sauce it is... More

Exciting menu, delightful ambience, friendly and attentive staff and, most importantly, delicious food! As keen 'foodies' we thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The lobster bisque is to die for!
