Still the best for bangers & mash

The birthday was in a pub on the other side of town near Hove but we enjoyed The Geese so much last time we had to come back even if it meant getting a taxi across town!

ORDER. THE. LAMB. SHANK. It was enormous, divinely cooked and delicious! I had the beef but luckily was able to clean... More

I try and pop in for a few pints at least 3 times a week. It has a great atmosphere. Also one of the best pints in the City :) They always play good music and the staff are always happy and welcoming. In the evening the place comes alive with people chatting lit by candle flame. In the winter... More

We stumbled across this little pub on the edge of Brighton. Stopped for Sunday lunch. Fantastic food. Roast lamb, veg and Yorkshire pudding. The sausage wrapped in bacon was a nice touch. Plenty of rich gravy. Friendly, helpful staff. Great value Great choice of music

We ventured into Hanover on Sunday and found this lovely pub my husband and I had one of the best roast dinners ever !!!!! My husband had the chicken and I had the beef both of which were amazing it was fairly busy but that is always a good sign. Friendly staff and great service will be back very soon.

A friend and I visited the Geese last Sunday. There was enough space for us to squeeze in, but I would recommend booking a table if you're more than two. The weather outside was horrible but the cosy atmosphere in the pub soon warmed our spirits as did a well concocted and reasonably priced bloody mary. I had a nutroast.... More

Where else can you think to go out for dinner and have sausages and mash over and over and over again and be happy?! Every time a different combination a different taste, different mash and different gravy, my last visit the duck sausages were amazing! The Winter ambiance is wonderful, warm, cosy and inviting, busy but not too loud, fun,... More

Had a Sunday roast here and it was excellent. Plenty of food and the lamb was perfectly cooked. Friendly staff and really cosy atmosphere. Would recommend for a rainy Sunday.

I had some family visiting for the weekend and we wanted somewhere relaxing to grab lunch, on a Saturday afternoon. I was with my wife, Mum and Dad, Aunty and Uncle and my Grandpa, who's in his 80's. We booked a table for around 1pm and when we arrived there was just a couple of other tables occupied, we were... More

Very nice atmosphere, probably more for the quiet get together than a crazy night. Bangers and mash is the menu and they do it very well. Service is on point as well.
