Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I come to the galley often. It is, in my opinion, thr best cafe in Lyme Regis. The staff are super friendly and the coffee is great. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere in the place is war and welcoming. It's is almost always...busy and for good reason. I will continue visiting the galley for the foreseeable future.More

We went to Lyme Regis for a bimble about and opted for lunch in the very nice looking Galley Cafe as the window was full of tasty looking treats and snacks. we were shown to a table in the narrow but well presented cafe by...a happy, smiling waitress and left to peruse the menu's. The mostly music & skateboard based artwork adorning the walls was very pleasing on the eye, creating a laid back atmosphere. I opted for the Eggs Halloumi which consisted of, a lovely muffin, halved, then several thick slices of halloumi cheese, two delicious runny poached eggs, all topped with a velvety hollandaise sauce. It was truly divine. My wife had the vegan breakfast which included: fried onion, hummus, red peppers, tomatoes, avocado, beans & toast. She thoroughly enjoyed it and was full after eating it. However we did order two pieces of Guinness chocolate cake which we ate later in the day and it too, was very tasty! I can't recommend the Galley Cafe enough. Well run, well priced and very delicious.More

Good for drinks but after 40 mins gave up on the breakfast and went next door. Over priced and staff more interested in larking about than serving. Kitchen baking products for next day instead of filling orders for today

A lovely little cafe, comprehensive menu, excellent choices for both vegetarians and vegans with some interesting unusual breakfast items. My partner had the chocolate and Guinness cake- enormous portion and declared delicious. I had the hummus and roast red pepper on a freshly baked baguette,...bread was still warm and it was stuffed full of delicious garlic rich filling- excellent. Service was lovely, informative, professional and friendly. Place very clean, tables cleared and wiped constantly. We will be regular visitors whenever we are in Lyme RegisMore

A slightly hippy place with assorted seating. Very busy for October, but cleared by 2pm. Had a really nice pastie and pickle, but I would not have minded having the table wiped clean.

This cafe has a cool surfer vibe and decor, but plenty of people as old as us were happily eating there! They had friendly, helpful staff and the service was quick. We enjoyed a filling and delicious breafast, with a very decent pot of tea.

An hour wait for eggs royale and when it arrived the eggs were overcooked. Ordered drinks beforehand, due to wait ordered more drinks and they just left the empties on the table. Went to pay to be told I had to pay in cash, which...wasn't mentioned beforehand, so I had to make my way to a cash machine. 32 pounds altogether for what was a pretty crap experience. Thankfully, Lyme Regis was great, and we had an amazing lunch at the pilot boat. I wouldn't return here.More

Hi there . I’m sorry you had a negative experience at the Galley. As you see from our reviews we are usually on point. I can only apologise for the wait on food. I assume we were extremely busy if you waited an hour. Apologies....More
