“Extremely Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Absolutely delicious food in a beautiful old house. Yes, the dining room is small (but I like this) and the food is not cheap (but for once it is actually worth it). And yes, the new waiting staff is 'inexperienced' as inferred from another review, but it is also charming, welcoming and eager to please - all in all an absolute delight. We are a family of foodies and find it impossible to eat without discussing the food. Its rare to get 5 different plates of food and all of them not just be delicious but unusual, beautiful and unexpected. I don't think I've ever found myself saying 'wow, there's so much WORK that's gone into this food' before. It's a gem.

“Great Food Poor Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

The food at The Moody Goose is excellent but is let down by poor service. Only two staff were working when we dined and we were left waiting longer than necessary. My order for fillet steak was taken without asking how I wanted it to be cooked and soon after sitting down the room filled with smoke from the woodburner. The smoke made it uncomfortable and detracted from the excellent food. We also had to wait 45 minutes between asking for our bill and receiving it when the restaurant was almost empty. We will think twice about returning as the prices are on the heavy side.

“Excellent food in relaxed surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed a two night stay at the Old Priory and ate both nights at the Moody Goose. We enjoyed the food so much on the first night, we reserved a table again for our second night. The food was superb, served in a warm, relaxing small restaurant in this lovely old building. Drinks prior and coffees after, were served in the lounge with an amazing inglenook fire place and wooden beam. The new owners can not do enough to make your visit a most welcoming experience, and their chef is secong to none!. We will deffiately return when we visit Somerset again.

“Pleasant dining experience...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

We decided to go here on a business lunch and were greated with a very warm welcome. We opted for the brassiere menu and were not disappointed. The food was of a high standard and the portion sizes were just right for a lunch time dine. The deserts were very impressive.
I look for to returning in the evening for a dining experience.
Well done The Moody Goose!
