Food & drink

The fish and shellfish comes from Day Boats landing their catch at Brixham. Some of the fish is line caught and they do not serve species that are under threat on their menus.

The mussels and cockles are harvested from the tidal section of the Exe Estuary about 3 miles downstream from The Galley: truly local food you could say!

The vegetables are locally grown from the farms around Topsham and the team make sure that only the best produce makes it to their tables.

They are committed to sustainable fishing and farming and only source their produce from suppliers that share this outlook.

They love sourcing interesting ingredients for Head Chef Jason Mead to cook and working hard to source unusual local produce and wild food.

The Galley like to be creative with some old staples, which you may find on the Pudding Menu from time to time.


With a unique location on Topsham Quay and fabulous views over the River Exe you can soak up the atmosphere of this ancient seaport from the comfort of the two dining rooms.
