Wine Bar

The Wine Bar

The wood panelled Wine Bar is the award winning centre of the business. Its character is largely unchanged from the original 9 table experience back in the 70’s. It now boasts 20 tables but still works on the foundations of great food using the best local ingredients and wine expertly picked to offer the best range and value.

Gales has a busy, informal nature with service that is friendly and knowledgeable. Whenever you come though the door you know you will receive the same amiable welcome.

The Food

'Simple food done well' has long been the motto in the kitchen at Gales, and while the team here do like to, on occasion, dazzle with something outrageous, the core principles are never strayed from too far. Steaks, burgers, ribs, and other classics remain on the menu next to the ever changing and evolving specials. We want to cater to everyone here. Gales has always been a place where groups big and small can be happy in the knowlegde that their tastes will be catered for. Meat lovers are spoilt for choice, but the vegetarians and vegans are not forgotten, and we've always been proud of the fact that we've never needed a 'children's menu', as the young always find something tasty here.


Our extensive wine list boasts labels from around the world. Many of the wines are shipped by ourselves and offer quality and value for money. Try Burgundies, Bordeaux and wines from other French regions, Spanish Riojas and wines from the Lebanon. Sample New World wines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and North and South America.As well as wines behind the bar, we carry a wide selection of other drinks including interesting and different bottled lagers, ales and ciders, soft drinks and specialist spirits.
