“Wild goose is worth a gander”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Sat upon a pine bar stool, I started to dribble and then to drawl, at the delicious breakfast being prepped, choice, small but perfect -the menu simple kept! Poached eggs and hollandaise, smoked mackerel,satisfied left amazed, at how simple food served fresh and true, made me smile through and through. A well kept secret is it meant? The Wild Goose at the Goods Shed.. heaven sent!

“Wild Goose at the Goods Shed Market, Canterbury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Brilliant bar food: little dishes of the most scrumptious and interesting food, cocktails and coffee.
Popped in for a lunchtime snack yesterday. Food is described by Lucy who cooks, waits and serves the food as tapas sized dishes but these are something between a starter and main course size.
Yesterday's delights included free range chicken, with blood oranges, roasted fennel and toasted almonds £5.90. Delicious. What a find.

“Wonderful new addition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The congeniality of the folks in the kitchen, the view of the market from the cozy kitchen bar, and the array of tasty morsels served up here make the Wild Goose a charming and delicious new addition to the Canterbury Goods Shed. Inventive cocktails and tasty small plates will certainly have me coming back for seconds.

“SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Four of us (adults) walked in off the street to try our luck and had a tapas style sharing Sunday Lunch here.The Goose is an enclave in the corner of the Goods Shed and whilst there is a buzz things never got too crowded. This is not a restaurant in a conventional sense, you have to go to experience it. The welcome & service were perfectly balanced, the menu and food eclectic without being downright weird, the taste(s) stunning and the bill was both reasonable and fantastic value for money. The earlier review pretty much sums everything up and we would agree that indeed this was and is a 'beyond-excellent' experience. Overall this venture knocks spots off better advertised and more pretentious outlets in the city.
