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.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Dined at the Goosefat and Garlic on several occasions and honestly....I absolutely love it. My first experience at the GF&G was for my sister's wedding reception in 2009 and I've been hooked ever since. The atmosphere, service and most definitely the food are all remarkable.

“One of the best meals I have ever had.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

It was my first visit to the restaurant and actually a second choice as our first choice was fully booked.
The food was fantastic. I had pigeon for starter and monk fish for main. It was all cooked beautifully and the flavours worked so well.
Two of the ingredients were different to the menu description but they worked so it was fine.
Had a bottle of prosecco with the meal which was gorgeous and very reasonable priced.
The service was great and the restaurant itself was lovely.

“A good lunch at a reasonable price!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Having visited GF&G on several occasions, at varying times of the day and have never left disappointed!

I have treated friends and family to Sunday lunch and dinner on a Saturday night at GF&G and everyone has been impressed with the food and also the service.....suffice to say, it's the place of choice for us for a nice meal (not taking anything away from the other nice establishments in the area !)

My most recent visit was on Sunday for lunch and yet again the service was absolutely fine and the food was very well cooked and tasty.

Well done Goose Fat staff, keep up the good work!

“What a fab place”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This was our first time visiting this restaurant, we went on someones recommendation, well what a fabulous place the food was excellent and value for money, we had the early sitting so had the early menu, but was not disappointed at all. The manager and staff were very professional without being too much. You really need to check this place out.

“attentive and professional service and excellent food”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

the fist time we have been here and were impressed by the professional service from the initial phone call to book a table and throughout the evening. a really good variety on the menu. we eat out a lot and the choices were impressive and we all really enjoyed our food . the end of the evening was marred for me due to the sharing of the toilets with the bar. there was a queue of rather drunk men that i felt uncomfortable standing next to whilst waiting for the ladies. there is only one cubicle. when it became free two young women came out still holding their drinks. it was reminiscent of my old clubbing days but didn't fit with being at a nice restaurant. as i was coming out of the toilet one of the men let out a most disgusting belch as if he was about to be sick . this was only my isolated experience but it wasn't congruent with a relaxed dining experience and think its important for the owners to be aware of this. the waiter however was great and gave us a complimentary glass of port when it didn't arrive initially.
