“Great Food and Great Sports Bar”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I was visiting my in laws in Feb/Mar this year and coming from Ireland i wanted to see a very important six nations rugby match so having searched various bars in Margate i came across the Keg and Galleon.The first thing i did was to ask the manager if they could show the game and he said no problem 'choose a tv and i'll put it on ', just for the record they have approx 7 tv's ! ( there might have been more?) The waiter was over to me very promptly and i gave an order for some wine and then mused over the bar food menu....they have got such a wide choice , sipping on my wine and waiting for the game to start i was now having difficulty choosing what to eat, i wanted something to nibble on so what to go for??...'surf & turf basket, chicken wings, fishermans basket, nachos, calamari strips, tatoe skins etc etc etc , for the 'hungrier patron' they have a wide variety of burgers, pies, grills, salads , curries, fish & chips and so on...well i eventually chose chicken finger basket and tatoe skins, service was quick and ample portions too, the game started & i was a very happy chappie with my 'belly & palate' satisfied ...we won too which was a bonus...PS we came back a few days later and had main course and again the food was spot on...its not five star dining but what they do ..they do very well....i'll be back
