I have owned restaurants, pubs and 2 hotels in my past and I can genuinely say £ for £ this is by far the best food you will have in the town of Woodbridge, may be £1 more than local food houses but the fresh cooked food is wholeheartedly worth it, the staff are polite and the service is second...

This was a bit of time out for us in a busy bank holiday weekend. We were the first table to arrive, at 7.30, but we felt welcome and the room soon filled up. We were encouraged to experiment with both wine and food. All nicely presented and tasted very good indeed. Personal service, friendly and informative. Good to see... More

It is a year or two since we visited the Galley but we were delighted to find the standard of service and cooking is still very high. The daily menu is interesting with ample choice of starters, main courses and puddings. There is still an extensive wine list with a special list of Riojas. Thankfully they still offer some good...

Excellent find. Had a great girls lunch, nothing was too much of a problem to keep us happy ! The flavours were out of this world. Even had a guided tour of the whole restaurant and wine tasting cellar. This place is a bit of Tardus, goes on and on but cosy at the same time. Will definitely recommend and... More

So pleased I booked the Galley for my wife's birthday. The service was excellent, they even put flowers on the table I requested. The food was delicious, everything tasted fresh and quality produce. The owner really made us feel welcome and was so personable, he had the whole restaurant laughing. Beautiful restaurant, we cannot wait for an excuse to go... More

This restaurant came highly recommended to me from the B&B owner we were staying with. We were not disappointed! So much so, that we have been there every week for the last 10 weeks while my husband was staying in Woodbridge working. The foie gras cappuccino is to die for, as is the lobster. Ugur is a charming host and... More

We visited The Galley for the first time to celebrate my parent's wedding anniversary and will definitely return. We were welcomed warmly at the door and the service was exemplary throughout. It's so lovely to be served by people who are clearly passionate about their food and wine. We had the mixed mezze starter plus sardines and feta parcels -... More

This is our fourth visit to The Galley but the first for a year. A wonderful evening right from the welcome you receive when arriving. Lovely atmosphere and the food was superb. Service was faultless. Both had 3 courses plus 2 drinks each £80. More than happy to pay that for quality food. Will not leave it so long to... More

Today I went to the Galley for lunch and it as amazing! It was my first time going there and I absolutely loved it. The owner, Ugur, is ever so friendly and funny, I loved chatting to him. The food was delicious! If you ever go there, I would highly recommend the roast lamb or the lobster. And for dessert,... More

As usually we were warmly welcomed by Urgu the proprietor. We had taken a friend who hadn't eaten there before. Friend had steak & kidney pudding, Husband had whole lobster & I had duck. The meals came promptly and were as usual delicious. Pudding for me is their hand churned Turkish deligh ice cream every time which our friend decided... More
