Lunch sandwich deal £6.50 with fries and soup. Good deal (in the past). My wife had white bread, I had brown. My bread was old and hard. I ate it as in rush and did not want to spoil my wife’s lunch. I just don’t know why a chef would allow that to leave the kitchen. Told staff when paid,... More

We ate at the Galleon on Friday night, they had live music on as well The Songbirds who were excellent along with the food. Friendly service, good size portions and lovely food. All in all an excellent evening. Will definitely go again.

Everywhere in Christchurch high street was packed. We were a little early for diner as they do not start service till 6. They allowed us to... More

So me and the other half went in for lunch i had a burger and she had a peri peri chicken burger. My burger was pretty ropey, i would say homemade standard but mine are much better! Plus it was a ball of meat, very odd. The peri peri chicken burger had no real sauce on it and was very... More

Our sons, aged 4 and 6, adore the kids menu and there is a spacious play area at the back of the pub. Because... More

We ordered the lamb shank, but were then told they had run out of that so we had to choose something else. As there wasn't really much on there to start with that we wanted, we opted for the roasted pork... More

We were one of three tables unhappy with the long wait for food (there were only five tables occupied in total). After two failed attempts at a medium steak I gave up. To be fair the other three adult meals were okay when they arrived. The kids meals were poor.
