Came to Castle Cary for a romantic weekend with my boyfriend and after several lovely ‘pub grub’ type meals, we fancied something a bit different for our final evening meal. We hadn’t booked so expected to wait. Asked whether they had a table and Jane...More

I’m no stranger to this underground cellar bar and Pizza restraunt. I had not been for over a year but heard “David Lunes” was playing, so I called to find out the exact night and time he was due to play. Unfortunately the staff didn’t...More

Hi Will- Sam here, manager/owner of The Gallery Bar. You have known me for around five years now and the only reason you have written this review is because we had a minor disagreement in The George Hotel and it seems that I have evidently...More

Had dinner here recently with my partner. The restaurant is downstairs in what looks like a converted cellar so very atmospheric - was recommended to us by some locals in The George pub so was expecting it to be really busy on a Friday night...More

This is literally my 2nd favourite place to eat and we drive 25 mins to get there. Food is amazing, atmosphere is cool and edgy. Service is lovely.

Myself & my partner have been here a couple of times now and both times it's been amazing. Food is sooo good, atmosphere has been great and the staff have been so friendly! Can't wait to come back. :-)

A very special place. Interesting menu now that it has added pasta to its limited food items. Pizzas are their speciality. Great little garden area, characterful cellar bar and a restaurant off the street. All of which you can eat in. Good choice of starters...More

Even though they do not do take away, they made us some delicious salads to take on the train. Excellent service. Highly recommended.

Dear Francesca, We were very much hoping you'd contact us as there was a great amount outstanding on your bill despite us recompensing you, owing to over £100. We do hope that you'll speak to your friend about this that was kind enough to come around and offer this. We were so sorry you were so disappointed with the Gallery Bar. I know that a member of staff misheard 'no chillis' for 'no cheese' and this caused some confusion in the kitchen but we were never informed of an allergy to chillis. We only offer one pizza on the menu with chillies and so why they would order this pizza when they had that allergy we are confused. There were three pizzas with chilies made in your big group under the same order when this was brought up as a mistake, and so as a good will gesture we took all of these off the bill amounting to a considerable amount even so we did think you enjoyed them as they were certainly all eaten!
