I found Gala through Tripadvisor and read the reviews so I was prepared about it's inconsistency but I wanted a dinner that was a step up from the regular offerings around Williamstown after a long drive. Driving up from NYC that day, I just expected...More

I think thus restaurant need a total change of management and staff. We stayed in the hotel and had a discount coupon. No menu, no coffee, and no waitress makes a very poor start on the day. The poor experience will impact on us staying...More

We love to sit in the lounge area and have s light meal along with really well-made drinks. Friendly bar staff too. Garden area is super this time of year and who doesn’t love dining outside. Gala will not disappoint.
