We came on Sunday, it used to be bustling but it was dead, service was good, young girl did her best but the food was awful. I had tomato and mozzarella salad to start (can't go wrong... More

This place looks quite nice inside but with hardly any punters on a Saturday evening (We did wonder!!) there was no atmosphere. We were a group of 7 out celebrating a birthday.The starters were lacking in flavour. One of the mains did not arrive until the rest of us had finished. The Duck had no sauce and was overcooked and... More

Eaten here a few times now, not a massive restaurant area yet seemed to be left for to long before drinks and god orders taken. Both times I've gone for the curry on their curry nights- yummy I must say. Will return again.

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.

we popped in on Saturday evening on the off chance of getting some good food. The food festival was on in Christchurch but we are not fans of eating while standing or walking around. 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
