    Lunch for 4 people and three of the meals very perfect but the fourth which included soup was extremely salty. It was soup the day (vegetable) and as I had previously ordered it and at the time again found it very salty I decided to write this review.

    Food and service was good. Noise levels very high. We were a group of Adult friends who only meet twice a year. The area our table was in was very noisy with screaming kids. I notice that other areas were quieter. We left after main course because of this

    The restaurant was very full (no complaints there) therefore the “noise” level was up. Excellent food and service, we will miss the Goose.

    Food was excellent and service A1. We are very sorry to hear the Wild Goose is closing as we visited regularly. My wife has trouble walking and we always requested downstairs and always got it. The online booking facility was always super efficient. Wishing all the staff there the best of luck for the future

    This is always a go to spot for catch ups with my friends group as it’s the perfect central location for us all to travel to and meet. The service is always top notch and the food gorgeous. The staff are also very patient with us when we are the ones still chatting holding them up from closing !!

    The Wild Goose never disappoints. As always it is a great place for our family to have a lovely meal celebrating landmark memories of our life. Food service and ambiance is always on point. Looking forward to many more meals there.

    Delicious food… courteous staff. Well priced for the amount of food you get. I would have liked a few ‘smaller dish options’ as I didn’t need to have such a large portion - but there weren’t many smaller options on the menu. Furniture was a bit ‘jaded’ (eg the faux leather on our chairs was all flaking off).
