We had planned to eat at The Galley during our week in October but when we arrived in Salcombe were disappointed to find the restaurant closed due to flooding, with no future date for opening. We are hoping this will be open next year and...More

Absolutely delicious food in comfy surrounds with a lovely ambiance - but the most amazing thing is the efficiency of the two girls waiting on the tables. These two put the best restaurants to shame.

Ate at the Galley tonight on the last of fourteen nights and many meals in Salcombe. Worst meal we've had in the town, which is a shame because it should be very good. Kids meals cheap enough but not very inspiring. Duck went down well,...More

The Galley is Salcombe's longest established restaurant, having first opened in 1962, and has the most wonderful view from its dining room.Where possible we use traceable fresh local produce and have an extensive menu including Salcombe Lobster and Crab, and a great selection of fish which is all from day-boats landing in Plymouth and Brixham. We also serve Westcountry steaks and chicken, and 'Gressingham' duck, and we also serve a selection of vegetarian dishes.We look forward to welcoming you.
