    It was just OK, not what I was expecting from Galvin. At first glance, restaurant is beautifully set overlooking the golf course but downhill from there. Service was mediocre and the food was average. Soup not good, salmon starter was nice. The potatoes in the roast were rock hard, probably left overs from the lunch service. Sticky toffee pudding was not sticky and not enough toffee sauce, more like a cake but also didn't seem freshly prepared. At nearly £50pp for 4 I won't be going back.

    Disappointing not up to previous standard. Wonder if chef has changed? Service is not as slick missing Leonardo previous manager

    A special evening was planned for my wife and I at Galvins @ Centurion. Impressive arrival with big bold gates and a short drive to a modern building that has been tastefully designed.
    We were greater at the door and invited to sit by the fire for some drinks, this we did, lovely.
    45 minutes later and some 25 minutes after our booking the waiter appeared with no apology for the delay and took us to our table.
    The dining room is simply furnished in a casual elegance styling, relaxed and elegant.
    We duly ordered and the starters arrived, risotto and a terrine, simply delightful.
    This was shaping to be a great night, mains then arrived, pheasant and bream. The bream was light and beautifully cooked and the pheasant looked inviting. As I began to enjoy the pheasant I spotted a hair, short, thick and black, then another! I called the waiter over and quietly pointed out the hairs, not wishing to make a fuss or create a scene in front of their other diners. The waiter acknowledged the hairs and offered to have another dish prepared, this I accepted. They did however leave my wife eating hers and I felt it would have been better to replace both dishes so we would be eating together. The replacement dish arrived in due course and it was delicious.
    We finished our deserts and took coffees in the lounge area.
    All in all lovely food in lovely surroundings, just a little disappointing that at no time did I receive an apology for the hairs in my dinner or no attempt to in some way compensate me by say removing the 12.5% service or not charging for the main course. This would have represented excellent customer service.

    Food was average, I was served the wrong drink, was refused the set menu because it was after 7pm, a honest mistake made by the waiter, we then received a bill for over £100, which was rectified once I complained to the manager
