So glad Gallery Cafe has reopened post-lockdown. Delicious salad today and the absolutely amazing Black Forest Cheesecake which is heaven on a plate. Excellent COVID safety measures and you can sit outside making it even safer. My fave cafe in Guildford

Second time eating lunch here but since I last came they've got a seating area outside with heaters which is nice as the cafe is small and cramped. The food is good, big portions and they offer gluten free bread. The only thing I didn't...More

Thank you very much for your kind words. I totally agree regarding the ham that day, we were supplied with the wrong product that morning and in hindsight shouldn’t have used it. Hope to see you again soon!

We had afternoon tea here which was really nice, lovely food, great service and very friendly. I never knew the cafe was here it’s a hidden gem, let’s hope more people discover it and enjoy the food.

My mum and I had a delicious afternoon tea here today after reading about it recently. The homemade scones were delicious and so yummy, and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Can't wait to return to try out the rest of the menu.
