Sunday dinner

We had a Sunday dinner. Meat of excellent quality, plenty of vegetables, home mqde Yorkshire puddings. Kids meals were let down. No salad was with hamburger and kids pasta was tasteless. Lovely cheesecake at the end and excellent staff service.

I love the offer of two courses plus a bottle of wine for 2 at £30. Really great variety on the menu and food is very tasty. We ate here a couple of times and I would highly recommend it

My first visit to this pub on Saturday evening to have meal with friends - the only thing good was the company I was with. The food was unbelievably bad - cheap olives and far too many, dried up chilli, stroganoff swimming in fat, one man found a piece of string in his the pie, microwaved rice dried up, reheated...

Stayed in Christchurch for a few days, and decided to have an evening meal at The Galleon. Car park was virtually empty, a possible bad sign for 7pm ?. Found a table for two, and studied the menu, and asked for a bottle chardonnay, and a bottle of water. Wine arrived, no water. Ordered the meal, which arrived in good... More

We all had various things off the menu and it was all beautifully freshly made, hot and excellent value for money.The children were very impressed with... More

Visited for Sunday Lunch. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and fresh surroundings. We had 4 2- course Sunday lunches, plenty of choice on the menu. Food was fresh, hot and served with a smile. Will definitely recommend and visit again.

I guess, when you move to an area, you tend to have high expectations of what to find. Sometimes those expectations can be dashed. We bought our house because it had a pub at the end of our street (hurrah). Having been to the Galleon a few times now I can make a few valid points about the place in... More

Terrible service, waited for ages before being given a menu or offered a drink. Awful for vegetarians. Food absolutely tasteless, mass produced and over cooked. Chips were still frozen, bread stale, pasta cooked within an inch of its life and coffee that tasted like hot water. We went here for a 70th birthday party and it absolutely ruined it. The... More
