Review on The Galley

A frontage as adventurous and unusual as the cuisine, you certainly would not mistake The Galley restaurant with its pink walls and aquamarine painted window frames. It stands out from all the other buildings on busy St Nicholas Street - as does its food.

Combining fresh, local ingredients with gastronomic flair and ingenuity, the Galley provides diners with a raft of mouthwatering dishes. The kitchen goes on a world tour, taking in specialities such as confit of Gressingham duck with saké and Lapsang Suchong tea, char-grilled loin of pork coated with north African spices and served with homemade plum ketchup, and rack of Highland lamb with local organic oyster mushroom sauce. To finish, try 'sexy' sticky toffee pudding or hand-made roasted coffee, Turkish delight and pistachio ice cream.

Delightfully cosy and intimate, the Galley has a welcoming and vibrant bistro-style atmosphere, with an open area on the lower floor and individual rooms upstairs. In the summer months, you can dine alfresco on the terrace. A fascinating global wine wine list, with bottles specially imported by the Galley's owners, further enhances the meal. There is a sister restaurant in Woodbridge.
