It's a Beefeater so has that standard menu of mostly steaks and ribs. Even though it looked only about 75% full, had to wait 25 minutes for a table. Service was friendly, but pretty slow. Food was ok but nothing special. Would have given it 4 stars but knocked one off for the slow service.

The service was good but the meal very disappointing and overpriced. The menu choices are small which is not a problem if the food is better quality. I had meatballs with linguine, I'm sure it was tinned tomatoes poured over meatballs also from a packet, not good enough for the price.

Came here for a meal and found the food very good and reasonably priced. Have eaten here a few times now and no problems.

6 of us ate here. It took 2 hours for mains and desserts. As mentioned in other reviews, the serving staff seemed to prefer standing at the back chatting. Most of the desserts were unavailable. The lamb looked like a jumbled mess, the rest of the meals were average and the prices were about 50% more than similar restaurants. Needless... More

'The Goose' has been one of my local/regular pubs for a good number of years now, I've been down there at various times during the day and evening and sampled their wares many times over. As a 'chain' style pub it's okay, it doesn't excel in any one particular area, they just serve beer and food and do it quite... More

Eat here at least once a month and have really tasty food every time . Nice staff and atmosphere. The chicken and ribs are brilliant so are all the steaks.

Went here with my partner and daughter and it was very busy but our food came out very quickly. The double bacon and cheeseburger is absolutely gorgeous! The server we had was really good and very friendly. Highly recommend this place! Excellent service. We will be back!

Arrived 15 minutes early, staff stayed talking to each other at back and called that they weren't open till 12. Went in at 12 and gave order but had to chase it after a half hour wait, even though other customers after us had theirs. Also the table we were placed at was the only tidy one, to the right...

The chicken and ribs dish (£14.29) was simply awful. The ribs were over done. It was difficult to differentiate between the meat and the bones. The chicken breast had been hammered wafer thin to make it appear much larger. Also, it was way, way overdone on one side. Leathery. Chips (skinny fries) were disappointing and bland. Corn on the cob... More
