The Galleon is a super family Restaurant that serves a no nonsense meal in a pleasant environment . The quantise are quiet large so you need to be hungry to benefit fully from your visit. The menu is extensive and should suit all tastes.

Had lunch with family. Excellent seafood chowder and main courses very good too. Friendly efficient staff. Reasonably priced.. Not surprised Galleon still in business after 50 yrs. Great to get discount voucher which really makes a return visit good value. Keep up the good work.
