Ate here last night and throughly enjoyed it, delicious food - had the mixed maze to start, one of the best I've had either in UK or Turkey and then Turkish Casserole and blacken pork for mains. The casserole was really tasty but delicately spiced, my husband pork was really tasty - a hot blacken coating in a sweet sauce.... More

The Valentines set menu did not disappoint! Lobster ravioli for starters, mains of duck breast for me & halibut steak for my wife, great deserts. Fine food freshly prepared, great ambience and all at a very reasonable price. If in Woodbridge do not leave without trying this restaurant!

We have visited The Galley several times and it has never disappointed. Ugur is an excellent host and always makes you feel welcome and relaxed. The kebab starter was simply wonderful. The wine list is great and the service cannot be faulted.

Lamb stew, chicken kebab, mezze, lobster ravioli... all perfect, prepared home-made quality. Also one of the best wine cellars and perfect wine recommendation from the owner. Please visit, it is worth it!

First time eating at the Galley. Enjoyed the Bread Selection and Mezze starters. The Mezze had a number of unusual flavours, all very enjoyable. For my main dish, I shared the Cote de Boeuf with another member of the party. It was perfectly cooked! If you fancy a glass of Red with your meal, go for the Rioja Cincel Reserva... More

This great little restaurant has a delicious menu, some dishes have a spicey twist, all are worth eating. Great wine and a knowledgeable host. A friendly place in an interesting old building in a lovely old part of town.

Have eaten here 3 times now. Love it. Great ambience, lovely food, nothing too much trouble. The owner is a great host and each time we've been, stops for a chat and gives the guided tour of the restaurant and basement/meeting room. Has become my favourite in Woodbridge.

Never fails to disappoint. Great good and a super wine list. Recommend the Lebanese wine which is superb. The owner Ugur is a super chap. Watch the hand shake though he is definitely getting weaker as he gets older !

We went to The Galley for a friend's 50th birthday and had a fantastic night. The food was great and the service was excellent.
