If you end a good meal with an invitation to look round the other parts of a restaurant, you can tell the owner has great pride in his work. Our meal was excellent, with a menu offering a different take upon locally sourced ingredients and an extensive pair of wine lists. The quality of the food is outstanding and the... More

When in Woodbridge we always have a meal at the Galley so returned with our friends to celebrate a significant birthday. Ugur Vata and his staff ensured we had a wonderful evening. Excellent, tasty, fresh food full of his native Turkish flavours. Has to be 5 stars.

Found this restaurant having checked Trip Advisor and what a find. A considered menu with a good choice of Mediterranean influenced dishes. The chef/owner is a great character who is passionate about food and wine and takes a personal interest in all his customers. We ate there several times while visiting the area and feel sad that it will be... More

we visited Woodbridge in our yacht and looked up on trip advisor the best restaurants in town. The Galley comes up tops on Trip Advisor and after the first meal we know why and it is a well deserved accolade. It was so good we booked again and on the second visit booked a third visit in four days. The... More

Lovely Rioja and lamb stew. Excellent service. But most of all jealous of the grandfather clock in the upstairs room and lovely artwork

Delicious, expertly cooked food and superb wines. Such a warm and friendly welcome we felt as if we'd been going to the Galley for years. Well worth staying the extra night and we'll definately be back, soon! Thank you.

We hadn't been to The Galley for quite a while and this has only been down to usual growing family and work commitments. Our visit was a milestone anniversary I was very pleased to say that once again we were made to feel special. The quality of food and service was as good as remembered. I travel with work a... More

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
