The Galley proved to be an excellent choice from several points of view. Friendly staff, speedy service even at a busy time, excellent food and value for money. We look forward to a return visit in the near future.

The service was great as were the surrounding but the main even the Fish was very disappointing. For a place famous for its fresh fish it was a letdown. We ordered the battered haddock and unfortunately mine had been in the fryer more than once....More
