I went here with my wife and mother-in-law for Saturday lunch. We had mixed mezzo starter between the three if us which had 6 home made mezze. Deep fried mussels and pitta bread. Taste was great.

For main we had 2 half lobsters and sea bass. Lobster was the best my wife had ever eaten (compliments to the chef as if was perfectly cooked) and my sea bass had a great twist to it a spicy oriental vegetable side dish.

For pudding we had the SEXY toffee pudding :)

Overall service very good, all waiters very friendly and treat you like part if the family...

Total price was £85 which I thought was very reasonable...

We will be returning very soon...

We find it difficult to criticise this excellent restaurant. The service was very friendly and very good. The food was as described on the interesting menus and the price was very reasonable. Look no further.

The Galley is a 180 mile round trip for us but it was well worth it. We went with my 89 year old mother in law (her birthday treat) and our son for Sunday lunch.
The staff were very helpful and attentive, the owner was especially welcoming and my husband enjoyed discussing the various wines with him.
The menu is varied and interesting, we all tried different dishes and everyone really enjoyed their meal. My mother in law even managed to find room for the delicious (her words) sticky toffee pudding with ginger ice-cream.

We visit Woodbridge on several occasions each year but never seem to time our visits to coincide with the Galley being open, until this October. Unfortunately, however, we didn't manage to get through the door of the restaurant so are not able to offer any meaningful, comprehensive review. Whilst perusing the menu outside we were hailed by a waiter who obviously saw himself as the Reginald D Hunter of 'table theatre'. Now, what might be amusing when delivered in a club or theatre by the talented Reggie can be just downright rude when directed face to face to a potential customer. With (say) two hours of puerile humour in prospect we decided that Ugur's bottom line could continue to bump along without any contribution from us.

We are sorry that you chose not to dine with us and if any offence was caused by a member of The Galley’s staff. You haven't made it clear exactly what was said so we can't comment, but we do ask our staff to approach potential customers with a smile on their faces and a welcoming cheerful manner. If you prefer solemn, miserable staff then we agree that you should dine elsewhere!

We are sure that if you made our staff aware that offence had been caused at the time an apology would have been forthcoming and you could have gone on to enjoy a wonderful meal — unless of course your offence was caused by some sort of racial intolerance, in which case we'd rather you didn't dine with us.
