Despite being in business for years, you can always rely on old fashioned wholesome food, roast stuffed chicken is my favourite

Ate brunch with a friend. The Galleon is clean and the food plain. It has an old fashioned charm. It's a favourite with my friend as she's a coeliac and from that point of view she had found it reliable. However, a few things things were unfavourable. The staff were rather stiff and not friendly. At one point a senior... More

The restaurant was crazy busy, we queued for about 15 minutes but the wait was definitely worth our while.Staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was unbelievable. Will definitely be...

I'm a regular patron to this establishment, which speaks volumes generally for the service & its quality. However my last experience of dining here was a bit disappointing, service was excellent as usual but the quality of some of the food was not good or at least to my liking. For starters I had spring roll which was very good.... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal of fish and chips followed by a chocolate fudge cake to die for! Service was spot on from very friendly staff, even those not on duty that night! Had great fun with the locals! A must to visit.

This restaurant was "Can do" all the way. Undaunted by the need to feed a vegan when there really was only one thing on the menu to order from and some picky carnivores. 😳 I called in advance while making the reservation and it was truly "no problem". They asked me what I like to eat! A special entree was... More
