    Excellent food, although an odd over selection of Asian dishes available appear to be at odds with restaurants old world feel and wine list. lovely service, nice restaurant overall. One note: Even taking into account restaurant mark ups the decent wine list prices are a little divorced from reality for some items. Shame as makes it difficult to select good wine.

    A great experience, we wanted to have lunch with our two youngest (9 and 11) and didn’t fancy the usual “catering for kids” venue. This was perfect. Kids were really well looked after and we got to have a lovely lunch, staff were excellent and friendly. Will be back for sure.

    Sadly it was disappointing. The service was very slow. Two starters ie the soup was cold and had to be sent back. One stater ie the scallops took ages to be served as in the other five guests had finished theirs. A rather disappointing and expensive experience.

    Excellent meal for Mother’s Day . Pork belly and calamari to start with . Followed by duck , chicken and roast beef. The service was impeccable and the staff were working so hard and keeping on top of everything . Roast beef the best I have had in years - so tender and cooked to perfection. Chicken was moist and a very generous portion. Duck again superb. One portion of baileys crème brûlée- divine .

    It was my wife, Lucy's, 60th birthday. She had a wonderful evening. The service was first class, excellent. The food was beautifully presented and prepared - delicious. The ambience was very relaxed and convivial. This is our 3rd time dining at The Wild Goose Grill - it just keeps getting better each time. Our sons, 21 and 20, really enjoyed their evening. We very much look forward to our next visit.

    Not one to take the time to make reviews but felt this experience warranted one. From the moment we were greeted by the Manager/Owner to our coffee at the end of the evening the whole experience was top notch. Four of us dined and we all raced about our starters, mains and desserts. Thank you Wild Goose.

    The ultimate test of a restaurant is the experience they give on a busy night like Valentines. We have always enjoyed the food and experience at the Wild Goose Grill. And the experience during our Valentines dinner was impressively, also excellent! Great food, wine & service. There was no compromise of the menu and ample space between tables on such a busy night! Both of which are frequently compromised on by other restaurants on such busy nights. Definitely will be back!

    My wife and I recently visited the Wild Goose for my wife's birthday as we have visited the restaurant on numerous occasions. On entering the restaurant, I was approached and was asked who's birthday it was. As we were led to the table and sat down we were asked, would we like some prosecco. We thought that this was a nice gesture from the restaurant as it was my wifes birthday. As always we only had 1 course due to the size of our appetites, but we went for the best which was the Cote de boeuf and a nice bottle of red wine costing almost 70 Euros At the end of the evening we asked for the bill and it was 183 Euros. To be honest we were a bit taken aback that we were charged 26 Euros for the prosecco. This is not about the money, but how it was done. A tea cake with a candle in it would have even been a nice gesture. We like the restaurant and the food is excellent but in my opinion, the restaurant could have skipped the offer of the expensive glass of prosecco and if it were my restaurant, I would have given someone who has visited the restaurant on numerous occasions a free prosecco or is this just my way of thinking???

    The food was fantastic. However we were handed our bill and asked to leave as they needed the table back. We were only there for 60 minutes when this happened and had spent over €160. The couple sat next to us were seated before us and they weren’t asked to leave as they needed the table back. The gentleman beside us agreed with me and thought it was rude. It ended our evening on a sour note.
