Description: We are a full service restaurant located in beautiful historic Merrickville. We also have a great pub for get togethers with friends or casual meetings with clients all in an 1856 historic building. During beatiful summer weather sit on our patio and have a great meal in the sunshine! Book your next party in our separate party room that can accommodate up to 50. If it's a group, a family outing or a romantic night out give us a call or just drop in and we can accommodate all your needs. Cheers from The Goose!!

We had our son't rehearsal party dinner in a lovely room beside the main dining area. The service was wonderful and the food was even better. Very affordable, good size portions and delicious. I would highly recommend this friendly restaurant and pub.

We have had many rehearsal dinners in our private room. We love to be part of that special day for couples. Thanks for choosing us and all the best and good luck to the bride and groom! Cheers from all of us at The Goose!

We had a Fisherman's Chowder, Fish & Chips and Mussels to start. All excellent, very good value for the dollar. Then to top it off our waitress was awesome! Thanks for a great meal, we will be back next time we are in Ontario.

Nice location, but the food is typical pub fare which is ok if that is what you want. I have freinds who rave about the food, but I didn't feel the same

We are sorry our food was not quite what you were looking for. Our menu is big and it has a lot of variety. We are a pub so pub fare is part of what we do. We also have many diverse entree selections to choose from, %95 of all our food is made on premises so we are not like typical chain type restaurants. We hope you will give us another chance so you can see we take tremendous pride in what we do. Thanks for your comments, Cheers!

We stopped in for a bite and a pint, and will return for another one in the future. The list of draught beers is extensive, and included an old favorite of mine that I hadn't had in years: Newcastle Brown. To go with that, we had fish & chips, and the smokehouse chicken quesadilla. The fish was okay (one piece was a bit oil soaked rather than firm and flaky, but the other one wasn't), but fries were excellent and so was the quesadilla. The service was very attentive and quick, even with a full restaurant and pub, with the three servers in the restaurant side working as a team to deliver to any table that had food ready if the actual server for the table was busy at another one (we ordered with one, got drinks from another, and had food delivered by a third).

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed yourself at The Goose. We are not really sure why one of the pieces of fish and chips was different than the other because they are made at the same time per order so we don't have an explanation for this. However we are glad your overall visit was a great one and look forward to seeing you again, Cheers!
