This weekend we had a family celebration for 11 of us. The Galleon is a really good place for large groups. The restaurant was easily able to accommodate us in a very beautiful conservatory. The staff were very attentive and the wide choice of starters, mains and sweets on the menu suited everyone. The food was well presented and delicious.... More

Just had our first meal here following good TripAdvisor reviews. Will definitely go back. Ideal for big family events - ask for the large table in the conservatory. Good menu. Wine prices very reasonable (eg Rioja under £15, Echo Falls under £10). Very helpful staff who accommodated menu variation requests. Only criticism is the pretty naff furniture - look like... More

This great restaurant managed to please 7 family members of all ages (not easily done). Food was delicious. Lovely comfortable table in the conservatory. The lamb dishes were perfect although everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was spot on. Friendly and easy going without being overbearing. Had a really good night here.

My partner and I visited the restaurant with my mother as part of a week of celebrating her 90th birthday. We could really have done without the unruly children running through the restaurant from the pub garden. I ordered salmon with a cream sauce. It was well-presented, but the first mouthful was, at best, warm. The next portion wasn't even... More

As ever, Good food served by lovely staff. Super friendly, and very attentive. Relaxed atmosphere, making this an ideal venue if you are looking for a night out with your friends listening to live music, or a quick drink in the sun with your family- children included. Whether you are a local or here on holiday I highly recommend this... More

The food was quite nice here, I had a homemade Chilli which had good flavour and reasonablly priced. The restuarant was decorated fairly well with a chilled atmosphere but the big let down was the 1hr wait for food! It was a Thursday night and not even that busy. The staff didnt seem too concerned about it so it turned... More

The outside of the pub lets the inside of this pub down, don't let the outside deter you from going in. The food here is superb and plenty of it, it was piping hot. The service here is excellent. We had the Sunday Lunch Menu, two courses for £12.95 or three for £15.95. The Sunday Lunch menu doesn't only consist... More

Brought the grandparents here for dinner and was a bit apprehensive as the outside doesn't really do it justice. Inside is quite stylish and good outdoor seating and small play area for children. Staff very friendly, great selection of food for adults and children. Lovely fresh fish, great steaks, well presented and good portion size. In fact we came again... More
