Wish I had gone before!

Although I have lived locally for several years I had never been in. It was a very pleasant surprise to find a smart, modern pub / restaurant with a good outside seating area. There is also a small outdoor play area for children. I ate off the "2 mains for £10" course. This is a short menu with... read more

We have had many enjoyable meals at The Galleon, but had not been back since Plates&Co took over the restaurant - until last Saturday. The menu looked as if it had quite a lot of choice, but when we studied it we realised it was rather uninteresting - 4 types of fish, 4 steaks, lamb, chicken, duck, but nothing that... More

Arrived at 6.30 having booked a table for 3. Told by a pleasant waitress we could choose any of the tables, which we did. Menus were brought quickly (but no drinks list). The wine list was soon found and delivered. Our drinks order was incorrect on delivery, and no mention made of the 'specials' menu board. We ordered our food... More

We had never been before preferring the The Globe or other restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised by the Pub which is comfy and friendly. We ate in the restaurant and had an excellent meal. Two mains for £10 was a bargain and the breads which came as starters were fab. We would recommend you give it a try.

As we were visiting Christchurch, I found the Galleon on line. We visited and were very pleased with the ambiance of the place, comfy sofas in the bar and the restaurant was in the conservatory at the back. There is a nice beer garden. The menu was not the same as the website as it has just re-opened and there... More

We booked a table for 6pm, the earliest they start serving evening food, we were looking forward to an enjoyable meal, especially as we had family down from Yorkshire who we don't see regularly, we can honestly say we did not have an enjoyable meal. The waitress managed to only take a drinks order for 4 people before walking away,... More

We decided to try the new restaurant as it’s very local to us and we didn’t feel like driving and from the description and the menu seemed like it was a good idea, especially with a young child. We had no problem booking it for Saturday night the night before. On arrival we were offered a selection of tables. The... More

Plates & Co took this restaurant over on the 1st July 2015. We often went to the Galleon so we thought we would try the new one out. Our drinks came fairly quickly although you could tell the staff were still being trained. We ordered filleted Hake (£13.50) and Lemon Sole (£18.50) and olives (£3) as nibbles. We asked for... More

Limited menu with cheap items on it such as hake for fish and chips. It was a lovely Sunday put summer food on the menu. I ordered a j20 and a pint of carling we had finished both drinks, no one came to take our food order so we left.

Despite being advised to book a table we arrived at 13:30 to find the place nearly empty ... It soon baca me apparent why! We all opted for Sunday lunch ..there was one sprig of broccoli each one sprig of cauliflower each about five baby carrots and two half slices of pork! When we pointed out to the waitress that...
