I enjoyed an excellent meal with friendly and efficient service. The restaurant filled quickly but we had no delay in any of the courses. The staff were quick to ensure we had everything and we never felt hassled or hurried despite the place being full. Superb evening and I would recommend it to anyone.

Being near the sea we were looking for somewhere to get a fresh crab sandwich and spotted this bistro near Brewers Quay. Whilst there was little doubt our food was fresh presentation was disappointing. In a geographic area that prides itself on artisan produce our crab was served very sparingly in mass produced sliced bread with half a plateful of... More

Thankyou for your comments, I am sorry you were disappointed with your lunch. On the issue of the crabmeat only being clawmeat (white), this is intentional, it is our experience that our customers prefer it to mixed or brown. During the season when the quality is good enough we do serve whole crab so you can mix it as you... More

Thank you for your comments. I m sorry you were disappointed with your meal. In response to your comments about the child's pizza, I am happy to confirm it is a pre-made pizza, if you were concerned about its provenance we would have been happy to explain that to you. We have a quite extensive children's menu with the usual... More

Back in 2009 I wrote “Galley Bistro does not always float my boat!” but we had Christmas Day Lunch at the Galley and, all things considered, it deserves a Very Good!

My partner had pate, a generous portion, beautifully presented. For main I had the Wessex steak with mushroom and Stilton on top. It was tender and succulent and accompanied with... More

Not since the days of 70's Steak Houses has it been possible to get a decent 10oz gammon steak. Well not until you visit the Galley Bistro. But let me start at the beginning. There is a good selection of starters with the Prawn Cocktail being described by one of my friends as the "best he has ever had. There... More
