Service was very good. We had a large group and they were able to handle it efficiently. Pretty noisy, but like I said, we were a large group. Sticky toffee pudding was not my favorite

As always a dinner with friends, family, or business associates does not disappoint. The atmosphere and knowledgeable staff are always very accommodating, they have managed to mix 5-star service and food into a very relaxing environment. The menu has something for everyone, and no trip over from the states would be complete without visiting Gallaghers. As others have said, call... More

We have eaten in Gallaghers on a number of occasions and if you want a gourmet dining experience in a warm and friendly environment, then this is the place to go. My husband adores their fillet steak and I have found the chef more than helpful in terms of meeting my special dietary requests (low sugar and low fat). While... More
