The menu had a good choice of starters and mains , the roasts were very popular with our party . Starters looked nice and were very tasty . The roast beef, pork and... More

We were a party of 9 On a busy Saturday evening. Service was excellent and they offer bottles of nice wine for £9.99 ! Our food was plentiful and hot. I had homemade soup - the best I have had in a restaurant, followed by chicken breast stuffed with brie and wrapped in Parma ham in a delicious sauce. Despite... More

What a disappointment. Went there on a curry night. Two for the price of one. Shocking. Was just like a cheap supermarket ready meal. Had to be reheated as only the plate was hot. Very cold in the restaurant, saw one lady put a coat round her shoulders and I was shivering too. Such an impressive entrance but being impressed... More

I went in today for lunch with my parents with an hour and 3/4 to spare before my mum had an appointment but for a quick easy lunch, thought it would be fine. It was reasonably busy when we arrived but only in the swanky restaurant area - no one was sat in the pub. Half the room were already... More

My wife and I had an early evening meal here which was very enjoyable. Service was excellent and the choices offered were good. Highly recommended. Would visit again if passing.

I gave this one star for the effort on the fairy lights...actually scrub that, they lose it for leaving them on all night with no consideration for the environment. They get one star for being open and having a roof when it was raining, and welcoming dogs. They lost a star for all the stools being at ridiculous heights versus... More

Nearly 40 of us booked for lunch at the Galleon. The staff and kitchen coped admirably with us all having different orders (we had pre-ordered). The service was smooth, efficient and cheerful despite the high level of chatter. Good portions of well cooked food that satisfies a hearty appetite. The staff also managed to serve a goodly number of customers... More

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
