We remain open for business!

At this uncertain time we would like to take a minute to reassure you of the steps we, as a responsible business, are taking to keep our wonderful team and customers safe. We will continue to take government direction and advice as it is issued.

We would like to reassure you that the safety of our staff and customers is our utmost concern. Hygiene and cleanliness has always formed an integral part of our day to day operation and we’re continuing to maintain those high standards.

As our menu is all cooked with fresh seafood, meat and produce, we will offer a reduced menu offering to ensure nothing goes to waste.

Finally, we would like to thank you, our lovely Galley customers, for continuing to support us by dining with us, engaging with our online messages and just by sharing our posts. For a small independent business like ours, that support is gratefully received.

Do please continue to support local shops and businesses where possible. Our doors are open and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

With best wishes,

Nigel, Jason and the team.

Welcome to The Galley


The Galley is a charming fish and seafood restaurant in historic Topsham, overlooking the River Exe estuary. With such a bountiful larder of Devon’s coast and countryside, our family-run team proudly serves the very best of Devon on a plate.

We offer a select but confident menu with a carefully curated wine-list with recommendations for each course. Head Chef Jason Mead lets the produce speak for itself, letting natural flavours shine through. Dishes are intense, clean and immaculately presented. There are daily changes to the menu, depending on local produce and seasons.
