“Excellent food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

This was the second time that my wife and I have dined at The Gallery. The food was superb again, mine host charming and welcoming as usual, and the meal would have been excellent value if we hadn't bought a wonderful piece of art. Again!

Hello Richard M & Wife, It was lovely to see you both again, I actually thought initially that you were house hunting in the area,as many do. I was glad to see we kept up our usual standards (High), as for the art (again) I think your wife had earned it!? Yours Gratefully Simon & Tracey

“The Best Place for Excellent Food in Central Chard!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We cannot speak highly enough of The Gallery. Excellent quality fresh foods. Lovely ice creams and puddings. Fine wines and great coffee. Very welcoming, hospitable hosts. Just imbibed in a most splendid Easter Sunday lunch (roast sirloin of beef etc). Compliments to the chef!

“Would Highly Recommend...”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

This was my second visit to the Gallery. Food was cook to a very high standered as was it the last time I visited. I really do like the different art around the restaurant.

Service was brilliant and the staff were more than happy to help and were very friendly. I didn't feel rushed one bit or at the same time feel as if I was hanging around for our food. The lamb was just beautifully cooked.

Only one small thing though we paid with cash and was aked if we wanted the change back which took me by surprise as I think a £18.50 tip is quite a lot for a table of two to give.

I don't want to leave this review on a bad note though as this lovely restaurant really doesn't deserve that and I will most definitely be visiting again.

“A suprise”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

The welcome was warm and the food just that bit different, tasty and well presented. There always seems to be an exibition of art in some form or another which adds to the atmisphere. and it is small enough to seem as if you were a guest rather than just a customer
