Not our first time at the Galleon and the food is always good. after a little delay with the starter and some confusion about what was included on a sharing platter for 3 ( originally came with just 2 pieces of deep fried Camembert and 2 small pieces of bread for the pate) . Normal service was resumed and we enjoyed well cooked and well prepared mains.

Paid well over the normal for shop bought stoned olives with supermarket ciabatta bread warmed up, incredible let down.
My husband had a rump steak which was ok and I had the rump burger which was so salty I could only eat a quarter of it and needed to ask for water!
Staff were lovely though!

Excellent food and service, only negative been the seating location was very tight probably due to a large party behind us, seemed pointless to ask for another location as it was 7.30 on a busy Saturday evening. Slighly spoils the occasion when you have to ask other parties to breath in in order for you to leave the table and vice versa.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I would definitely go back again. The service was good but the food was even better. The steak was cooked perfectly and the pepper corn sauce was delicious. I would 100% recommend this place.

Went for my daughters 21st. Staff were very helpful with cake and decorations. Nice clean modern decor. Lovely quiet atmosphere. It wasn’t busy on Sunday evening but not many staff about and had to get their attention. Food was ok. It very expensive for what it is. My boys would have been happy with McDonald’s. To be fair I cook good quality steak at home for a fraction of the price so wanted something a bit special. £4.25 for a portion of peas!!! Overall nice place but wouldn’t go back. Nothing wrong just not for us prefer soulville.

We have eaten at the galleon a number of times and always been happy, we visited on Saturday the 7th of September and whilst the staff were very polite and friendly from their performance it was clear to see they were new to the job, a number of mistakes were made with the ordering process which wasn’t too bad, there attention to our table was very limited and we had to keep calling them over for more drinks but as I’ve stated the girls were lovely, I feel they were not given enough training and it was clear to see they needed a little more which is not their fault, the restaurant wasn’t over busy so I feel the management should of had time to oversee the new staff, I didn’t say anything as I didn’t want to knock the new staffs confidence I also left a generous tip as they did work hard just didn’t pull it together as they should of done, our bill was £350.00 and I didn’t feel I wanted to question the service against the bill as we did have a lovely meal, we will visit again.

WE CAME TO TRY OUT 'THE GALLEON' FOR A SUNDAY CARVERY. IT WAS RECOMMENDED BY A FAMILY FRIEND. SHE SAID IT WAS A GOOD ALL ROUND DINING EXPERIENCE, HOW RIGHT SHE WAS...... WE FOUND THE STAFF VERY ATTENTIVE AND PROFESSIONAL. THE FOOD WAS SUPERB AND WE WILL DEFINITELY BE COMING BACK TO TRY OTHER MEALS.

My wife and I were looking for a quality steak house. You don't mind paying good prices for a good experience. Unfortunately...this was not. The sharing platter...two wings overly coated in an extremely hot sauce. Tepid mushrooms hardly warm with a cheese and garlic top was unbalanced. Deep fried brie is what it is but prawns were watery and the cocktail sauce too scarce. So... to the mains...my wife had sirloin medium which was pink and left a good amount of blood on the plate. I went for a 20oz tbone which was full of gristle and
very fatty... only charred on one side and the other side showed areas the meet wasn't even cooked. I complained and they cooked it again but too little too late really. Battered Onion ring was soggy. When it came back from recook the onion rings had been replaced but so had the fries and the fresh lot were very anaemic. Why as British we don't complain enough at the time is beyond me but hey ho...we finished up and asked for the bill. Whilst there was an apology from the waitress at the time of initial complaint... nothing further was said whilst I paid and the £70 bill was quite frankly insulting considering the poor quality food. To add insult to injury....we were told "come back on such and such a date...we do a 2 for £20". Well...I cant remember the exact details...I was just wanting to leave. All I all I am still struggling to find a quality steak house in my region.

The steakhouse was very nice and the atmosphere good. Staff welcoming and very attentive. Both my husband and I had fillet steak. Was beautifully cooked and worth every penny. Would certainly go back and recommend to our family and friends.

We enjoyed our meal, the steak was amazing, no complaints there! Scallops a little rubbery and mushroom a little watery but it’s nothing major! Only thing I would say is the service for drinks was very slow and we had to continually look around to grab someone’s attention and it wasn’t overly busy either. We would definitely recommend and would go back

Decided to book for special treat for a 75th birthday. Choice of table when we arrived. Waitress was friendly and helpful. My husband had the 20oz T-bone steak. Cooked to perfection. I had sea bass fillets really tasty and well presented. Could have been hotter. Had a chat with the chefs very interesting. Would certainly go back on our next visit to Chesterfield.

We took my mum for a birthday treat on a Sunday .We had a carvery that was very nice with a good selection of meats and vegetables . The desserts were excellent too. The staff made us very welcome and were extremely friendly and polite . The only negative for us that is wasn’t very busy with only another couple dining and it didn’t seem to have much of an atmosphere . Would visit again
