“Still the best Salcombe restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2010

Visited the Galley on 14 June, a quiet Monday night but stiil came away totally satisfied.. Impeccable service from smiley well trained staff and super food again. Cood value house wine.The scallops were fantastic. So much better than the pubs in Salcombe which are still serving pub food at Galley prices. Try it - you won't be dissapointed.

“Grown up, Nice food, Sit near the window, very nice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2010

This is not cool & hip, & no good for sitting outside. It is a good old fashioned fresh food resturant. Local day boat fish is on the menu of course, along with a good look in from all other food groups, scouced locally + serving of vegetables is included with mains. Service was informal, happy & efficient.
Price for a relaxed three courses including wine and posh water £35.00. Just the ticket.

“What a Shame”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2009

Salcombe is a brilliant setting but a pity there are not restaurants to match - at least one! We thought the Galley ticked all the boxes, the ambiance was good, the location was perfect and the service very good but the standard of food was disappointing. It was almost as if they were nearly there but did not have that touch of finesse to make the leap. All the dishes were ok, but that's all, with the exception of the lobster which I should have sent back because it was overcooked, rubbery and no flavor. I am so annoyed I didn't!
