This restaurant more than lived up to the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. A very welcoming environment with excellent food throughout a three course meal. We had a variety of dishes including serano ham, feta pastries, pork belly, duck, aubergine gateaux and lamb stew and all were excellent. The deserts were also imaginative and well received. All in all an... More

Heard great things but did feel disappointed with the food and also the value for money aspect. Didn't help that it was quiet and hearing the kitchen shout "service" is a little off putting. there are better restaurants in the area

Friendly, personal service with attention to detail. They were able to adapt the dishes for a gluten free diet without losing any of the wow factor. Would highly recommend The Galley.

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food was fresh and imaginative and beautifully cooked and presented. The service was exemplary. If you get a chance you must visit. It is rare to find such good food.

My family eats here a lot, it's a real family favourite. The food is always perfect and the creativity of the menu makes dining here more interesting than most restaurants. Great chefs and ingredients put this food up there with the best. The front of house staff are some of the friendliest I've ever met, there's a great friendly atmosphere.... More

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.
