SquareMeal Review of
Balls Brothers Hay's Galleria
A glass of wine, a game of pétanque, a platter of British farmhouse treats to share – there’s much to like about this Balls Brothers outpost housed in the attractive, relatively tranquil open-air
galleria; however, you’ll need to head downstairs if you require sustenance in the dining room proper. Brick-lined arches hint at the building’s former use as a wharf cellar, making it an
atmospheric – almost conspiratorial – location for some indulgent wining & dining. Seafood is the focus at this particular branch, so crab ‘crumble’ on Melba toast with watercress salad might
open proceedings ahead of Cornish cod, crayfish & flageolet bean cassoulet. Meanwhile, juicy steaks assuage hungry omnivores, with the DIY ‘volcanic black rock grill’ as a big selling point.
The food is matched by a reliable Balls Brothers wine list.
