The Galley Restaurant
Joey and Aileen Chambers opened a small Fish and Chip Shop in the Co Down coastal village of Annalong back in 1990. Over the years they have grown and grown and have now just completed their third massive extension by adding on a 60-seater restaurant. Joey was a fisherman before they opened the shop and still owns his own boat. On the rare occasion he gets time off he fishes for crabs and lobsters. That means he knows good fish and where to get it. You can choose from Cod, Haddock or Whiting. You can have it battered or cooked in breadcrumbs or baked with garlic butter, spring onions, cherry tomatoes and lemon juice.
Daily specials might be homemade steak and onion pie, gammon steak, baked fish with a ginger and lemongrass crust, salmon, or pan fried chicken with a creamy leek & mushroom sauce. There are also plenty of low-fat options and super salads. Everything is cooked from scratch. They cut all their own chips and bake all of their delicious desserts, traybakes and scones. They make every effort to ensure their products are sourced locally. Their meats are from Causeway Meats, Coleraine or Nicholson’s Butchers, Kilkeel, Crabs are caught along the Annalong shore. Fruit and vegetables are from Arnotts in Belfast. Scampi is bought from Kilhorne Bay Seafoods, Annalong. Those all-important potatoes come from McKelveys in Ballynahinch and some local potato producers over the summer months.
Whether you’re in the mood for a freshly baked scone, an Ulster fry, a smooth coffee, a hearty lunch, a healthy salad, a three course meal or a delicious homemade dessert you will find it all at The Galley Restaurant
