Mussels were incredible!!!

The best mussel dish I've ever had! Lovely meal out with the family. All enjoyed our meals - despite some of our fussy diners!

Amazing food! Try the lamb rump no need to cut it just fell apart. My son had the beef Wellington which melted in the mouth. Well worth a visit. Excellent value for money!

Popped in on my own early in the evening. Made to feel welcome which as a lone diner isn't always the case. The Lobster Risotto was very good and the Monkfish wrapped in Parma Ham was excellent. All finished off with a very nice piece of cheesecake.

Popped in for lunch and wasn't disappointed. Had a mushroom and Stilton ciabatta,mwhich came with a nice side salad and a portion of chips. Everything was good about the quality of the meal ( although the salad could've benefitted from a dressing). The portion was huge, and I couldn't quite finish the meal. My wife had a tuna sandwich, which... More

We have eaten here as a family and with friends several times. The service has sometimes been slow but the food isn't bad and the portion size is good. We went there this weekend with friends and decided to sit outside as the weather was good. Most people were outside with one or two inside. A bad start when the... More

I have to say I was expecting this review, and I completely understand why you felt compelled to publish you experience with us. In this case it was a disaster! By way of an explanation (but not an excuse) I would like to point out that although there were only about a dozen tables outside in use, we also had... More

Our original choice of venue was unavailable so we thought we'd try The Galley!!! Firstly.... Lovely venue, welcoming and great decor.... Staff very friendly. Longer wait... More

Nicely tucked away by Brewers Quay. Very nice staff and quick service. Sat outside so can't comment on the inside but lovely alfresco atmosphere. Food was very good and well presented. Just let down a little with the sachets of sauce rather then bottles.

My family and I frequently go here and I can't say a bad word about it. The food has always been exceptional, service friendly and fast and location is just off the harbour. Would recommend if you're in Weymouth.

We have been eating in The Galley Bistro once a month every month for about the last four years on visiting Weymouth and always had a nice lunch. The have a good varied lunch menu and also a good dinner menu. We have always been happy with the service and the staff are friendly too.
