-chicken wings were absolutely reheated
-literal whole steak slapped in a steak sandwich that I felt like I had to disect to eat. Frozen veg that honestly looked disgusting couldn't even take a bite. Mash that had absolutely no seasoning or butter completely plain seemed like they had been reheated from earlier in the day.
Also purchased a 12 o steak was ordered medium well it came out a dry tateless slab of meat that did not appear to be fresh at all. paying 80 for a meal you'd expect more value for your money. Shame for a beautiful restaurant as seems like a gorgeous set up but unfortunately couldn't recommend as food was shocking

Fantastic flavours!
We were all very happy with our food. One person was disappointed to see that the fresh fish option that we viewed on the online Sunday Lunch menu wasn't on the menu in the restaurant. It was fairly noisy in the restaurant with a lot of young children but that is probably to be expected on a Sunday, and the employees cannot control that anyway. Just a head's up!
Social distancing and hygiene measures were really well controlled. The exception being some people & children hanging around the benches at the front door (which need to be removed for that reason).
We were greeted at the front door by a friendly, upbeat employee with a visor who communicated to employees inside via a headset. We were brought in by another employee who seated us bang on our prebooked time. We were given printed menus (which were disposed of after use). And the cutlery came out in sealed paper bags which was unexpected but good to see. Every table had an antiseptic gel dispenser on the table. The food came out within minutes which was impressive. Every employee was communicative, friendly and prompt. We couldn't be happier with the service.

Hi There,

had a lovely meal and enjoyed the evening, however not your fault, but there was a very annoying woman sitting at the table under the T.V., just herself and her husband. She kept looking over at me, Staring at me which made me feel very uncomfortable. I know we are not regulars and maybe she was wondering who we were but there was no need for the stares... Apart from that the meal was divine, I would highly recommend your restaurant to my friends. in fact I intend to visit with my sisters soon.

kindest regards,

Terri Ryan

We visited this restaurant as it was the closest to the nursing home thar I was visiting an aunt. It was Sunday at lunchtime and booked it online. Staff were very friendly and all wearing masks. There were signs saying everything was sanitised including condiments. We ordered our food and it came out very quickly. Too quickly to say it was fresh however it was nice. A server came over to clean a table after a couple left and to say it took him less than one min to clean it was an understatement.

Has gone way down hill, used to go there regularly with my partner. Went last week and had chicken goujans and chips! The chips were like a child portion and chicken gougans was like something out of the freezer. Wont be in a rush back there again for a few months!

Overall our experience was ok, service bit slow and that wasn't due to it being busy as was 7pm, food was ok tho thought presentation could have been bit better, eg burger could have done with few lettuce leaves on the plate to add colour. Steak only ok for price paid.

We enjoyed our evening at the Wild Goose. The food was great and the service was good. The restaurant was very Covid friendly in terms of sanititation. The only downfall was that we were there shortly before closing and felt a bit uncomfortable/in the way of the staff. Overall it was nice and i would probably visit again if in the area.

I understand it’s challenging times with social distancing but we reserved 2 tables for a golden wedding anniversary and we had to sit with our backs to each other. It was very impersonal and so embarrassing turning around to speak to our family with other diners sitting sideways looking at us.
