The Wild Goose never disappoints. They have a superb menu and the food is delicious. My kids also love the food which is the main thing for us as it makes dining out so much easier. The staff are always super helpful and accomodating and the service is overall just fantastic.

Food was superb, area was well lit (would have preferred a more romantic lighting scheme) but overall the experience from arrival through to departure was excellent.

Starters were nice. Main courses very poor. Couldn’t finish the chicken curry and the chicken burger very poor too. Won’t return.

Convenient, parking, great food, family friendly and lovely staff 😊 Went for lunch with my friend and our two toddlers and we got a great table by the window and away from other people which made us feel safe and comfortable that we are not interrupting others. Had a lovely time!

We had table booked but arrived earlier than we anticipated- they glady give us a table. I was very impressed how the handled covid 19 restrictions and on a few occasions I heard them ask public to wear their masks while leaving their tables. They also turned away people who did not have their covid certs. I was very impressed- great choice of food- service was so fast. And quality and price were excellent. I will glady go back.

Meal was lovely and everything was perfect and I will definitely be back. Only took off a star as expectations from reading online Gluten Free menu was very high only to find out it had been shortened and my initial choices were gone.
