I first encountered the owner of this restaurant when he had a small place in Ipswich and I had a romantic meal there with my then girlfriend. I told him I wanted it to be special and he promised it would be. That was probably over 30 years ago now and he, Ugur, has opened more restaurants and his reputation... More

Our good friends visited us from Scotland and we took them to the Galley for a meal on a Friday night. We all shared the Mezze to start and it was amazing. The different flavours are all delicious - remember to leave space for your main! We had the Lobster Thermidor which was cooked perfectly in the delicious Thermidor sauce,... More

The Galley is my favourite place to eat, It is a perfect combination of comfort and class. Ugur's charismatic approach to food and his enthusiasm always leaves a smile on my face at the table. The highest quality of food with tantalising flavours! If you are looking for a rememberable dining experience I would urge you to pay the Galley... More

A superb dinner - the service was exemplary, the cuisine impossible to improve and a delightful ambience. So why on earth do people visit the chain outlets and not The Galley?

I believe we are fortunate living in the Woodbridge area with a good choice of restaurants and pubs of varying standards and choice of menus, but each time I visit The Galley I leave with the view I could have been in a Top London Gourmet Restaurant. Lobster Bisque followed by fresh huge Half Lobster in garlic, at a reasonable... More

My friend & I had a business dinner at the Galley recently. The maitre d was excellent, attentive yet not overbearing; the food especially the Meze starter for 2 which was delicious; the wine cellar was splendid (someone certainly knows how to select quality wine). Don't visit Woodbridge without visiting this restaurant
