Amazing food and service. Ugur was so helpful when choosing gluten free selections for my wife, making freshly prepared food for over 25yrs can't rate this restaurant highly enough! The sexy sticky toffee pudding is a must! 😍

I like to try interesting food which The Galley seemed to offer, but we all felt it was lacking in real flavour. We went on a weekday night which may explain why the atmosphere was a little flat, also the waiter/owner was heavily promoting a...More
