Not great but I would recommend due to the fact that it is a very nice place and that the food is very hygienic. Also the kids menus is very nice and the chicken nuggets and chips are very nice,

We were a party of 18 and The Galley were able to accommodate us by seating us altogether. To help on the night we were able to give our order in advance. Food and service were excellent. Would definitely recommend.

My memories of the Galley were a good chippy to stop in at on the way home. But now, with their new restaurant, it's a favourite for all occasions! Their food is always delicious, the portions are extremely generous and the atmosphere is lovely. Very friendly staff. Thank you!

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.

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.
