Situated in the centre of historic Sawbridgeworth, Goose Fat and Garlic offers something for every palate and every occasion. A range of menus caters for everyone from the casual diner looking for a quick lunchtime sandwich, to a business meeting over an a la carte dinner. A set price a la carte menu during the week offers a great dining experience at a very reasonable price, and an authentic tapas menu is a great causal eating option - ideal for groups. The bar attached to the restaurant provides the perfect meeting place for those just wanting a drink, or for pre and post- meal gatherings, and is known for its great cocktails and extensive wine and beer choices. The ambiance is smart but relaxed.

The food was good and well presented but the noise from the bar area is very off putting for everyone dinning. Can't hear yourself think let alone have a conversation. Would be great if they found away to block the noise out better

Lovely meal with husband, son & daughter-in-law at this great little restaurant. Have been a few times and always the food never fails to please! Staff were as usual very attentive and we enjoyed the deal of 3 courses for £19.95! No doubt we will return again.

Good food, good service, would definitely come again. The evening menu could be expanded somewhat but a great place, with lovely cocktails and reasonable prices.

We had a party of 19 having a meal to celebrate my daughters birthday in January. Apart from our party the restaurant was very busy. This did not make for delays with our food, which all came to the table piping hot and everything was supurb. The whole place had a wonderful buzz, staff very helpful and pleasant. You could...
