Very good as a coffee shop but could not be described as a restaurant, scones and coffee great. Visit to the takeaway the following evening was very disappointing, although very busy the quality of the fish and chips was poor.

We dropped in for a cuppa and were so impressed we ate there for the rest of our stay.The prices are reasonable and all that we tried was fine - warning - the portions are huge! All the staff were welcoming and helpful.

This place is simply superb. Used to visit regularly when we had the caravan in ballymartin! Easily one of the best chip shops in the country! Delicious fresh food, cooked to perfection every time. Visited recently to see the new sit-in restaurant and it was as expected! A comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with friendly and welcoming staff. This place is... More

Lovely food, such a variety on the menu, although it is hard to not order their fish and chips which is delish!! Staff friendly and helpful.

We were a group of 7. Good selection of food on the menu and reasonably priced. Food was very good and deserts home made!!,Service was good, staff very friendly. No problem splitting the bill. Many restaurants these days refuse to do this for groups which can be annoying. Decor was beautiful, very fresh. We were staying in the camp site... More

For years we would have travelled 30 miles to get food from the Galley Takeaway. It was always fantastic. Then we had a break for about four years. We were back in Annalong in April this year staying in the caravan park just opposite the chippy. In April we were so disappointed at the quality of their chips. We were... More

Hi Lizzie, We are very sorry to hear of the disappointment with food from our takeaway on Saturday 26th October. All our food is cooked to order and each item has it's own timer so it always reaches the required temperature consistently every time. But it seems to not have been the case for your order, not only that but... More

Service good if you get the right waitress.have had brilliant salads,some larger than others,but the other meals have been average. The last time we went two had breakfasts which were not that warm and not the standard expected for this sort of establishment. I know this place has good reviews but we have been several times and have been disappointed... More

We are very sorry you have had some bad experiences in our restaurant for which I can only apologise. Salads should always be the same size but obviously some chefs are more generous with portions sizes than others and I can assure you I will address this issue with the kitchen staff. Food should never go out less than piping... More
