Reviewed January 7, 2013

Table for 14 all catered for very nicely indeed. Both traditional and Turkish-influenced Christmas fayre at the upper end of expectations and atmosphere and service brilliant.

“Really excellent”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Dinner for 4 at the end of December was the most relaxing evening with tasty, superbly cooked meals. I had the Turkish stew which was delicious. I also really enjoyed the red wine although I was surprised that there was only one choice by the glass. I very much appreciate it when the waiting staff remember who ordered what as they endeavour to do at the Galley.
Ugur was very welcoming, informative and amusing without interrupting our conversations. He certainly adds to the experience at The Galley which we hope to repeat very soon.

“Lobster treat”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Lovely staff greated us on our arrival, as we were looking forward to this restaurant after being reccommended by friends. The menu choice is a mix between a Turkish and a English countryside restaurant.

The main speciality of the house is Lobster, to which we enjoyed two specimens close to 800 gr. Produce was really fresh, and presentation was tip top. Must reccommend "pimento sauce" if you decide for lobster, made with Spanish red peppers, sweet and not overpowering, allowing to the lobster to do all the talking.

Ugur, the restaurant owner, was always very caring, even offered to show us the restaurant after the meal. Particularly impressed by the private dinning room on the first floor, that would be ideal for family parties, and the cellar, with a loooong table that would cater for 25 odd people whilst enjoying some wine and turkish mezzes or tapas.

“Stylish, elegant eatery with attentive service”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

V good food, well prepared and a menu with lots of variety. The light lunch menu, which we didn't select, appears excellent value - £9 for three courses.
Portions on the small side, but surprisingly satisfying and flavoursome.
Nice and rare combination of relaxed and yet sophisticated atmosphere.

“Never fails to impress!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We had some very good friends staying for the weekend and there was only one place to take them for dinner ! As always Ugur and his staff made sure we had a great evening with the usual attentive service, superb food and excellent wine recommendations.
