Glamorous fish restaurant Galley’s sublime winter menu is not to be missed.

The venue has been discretely tucked away in the centre of Upper Street for the past year – but the food is anything but modest.

Punchy plates include a venison steak tartare starter – an exquisite game-based take on the French classic (£11). Squid (£9.50) is gloriously crispy with an Asian chilli twist.

Even a humdrum sounding pumpkin velouté veggie option is made dynamite with a wild mushroom and blue cheese kick (£7).

Galley doesn’t come without its eco-credentials, and all fish is sustainably caught.

For mains I opted for the roasted halibut. With a tinge of tarragon and saffron-infused potatoes (£25) it delivered on both the comforting factor and sophistication.

Other choices include pan-fried sea bass with gnocci and mushrooms (£19) and butternut squash ravioli (£16.50).

A sticky toffee pudding with praline and whisky sauce (£7) rounds off the meal nicely.

Founders of Galley, Polish-born brother and sister Marcel Grzyb and Oriona Robb, have a connection to the food trade that goes way back, with a grandfather who was the local village butcher and parents who owned restaurant, pizzeria and deli.

Oriona who is a stylist has made her mark on Galley’s lavish décor, with green velvet banquette seating, vintage rugs, Moroccan-style tiles and ambient lighting.
