About The Greedy Goose
The Greedy Goose is set in Plymouth’s oldest building, Prysten House, in the centre of Plymouth. The building alone creates a very special & truly magical ambience, with it’s very own fine water well, a private first floor dining room, and a stunning courtyard, it’s a great spot for you to really be able to make the most of what we have to offer, whether you’re joining us for a light lunch in the beautiful courtyard, dinner with friends or family, a romantic night out, or a big celebration.
The Greedy Goose opened in November 2014 and is the first venture for Francesca & Ben Palmer.
Ben brings years of experience and awards to his kitchen and he specialises in using local, seasonal produce to create memorable flavours. Ben has worked with some of Britain’s most respected chefs, who have all played an important part in his career and achievements.

The Greedy Goose Ratings and Reviews
We were lucky to be able to enjoy the set menu option which is a fantastic value. Unfortunately it is no longer available but even their new 5-10-5 offer is good value for the quality of food you are served. The restaurant is beautiful and cosy and the staff friendly and very professional. The food is just fantastic. I would recommend Greedy Goose to anyone.
This restaurant gives you that ‘I feel special’ feeling - the service is brilliant, the food so beautifully presented and some of the best cocktails I’ve had in Plymouth. We’re not sure how we’ve managed to miss out on this place for so long! Sure, it’s a little pricey but then again you get what you pay for and it’s rare to find somewhere in Plymouth that’s as special as this place.
The food is ridiculously good and very imaginitively served. The staff are excellent and get the right balance of discreet attentiveness. I loved the flavours of the different courses, even the bread was superb. My only criticism is that the pricing is a little high but I do tend to think that about most restaurants and The Greedy Goose comes closer than most to justifying the prices.
Thank you, we had a really lovely and special time celebrating the Solstice and being together as a small family of three. We were surprised and glad to learn about this hidden jewel in Plymouth which can be a city that is a bit depressing at times. We feel that this restaurant adds to the quality of life in the city and wish there were more locations like this one to go and to enjoy. Everything was perfect (and we are not that easy to please). Thanks and we will come again.
By far the best meal we have had for years in Plymouth. So pleased to have found this little gem. Ben Palmer the Patron/Chef last cooked for us years ago in Looe & was excellent then - but he has stepped up a few marks into much more sophisticated food. Well done.
We went for my husband's 70th birthday and everything was excellent from the first greeting as we went in to everything else in between. The staff are really friendly and the birthday card that was on the table from all the staff made my husband's night. Thank you to everybody.
It was the first time that we visited the greedy goose! And I have to say it was well worth it,from the beautiful interior to the friendly staff! There was no rush and nothing was to much trouble, as for the chef you could not fault any part of the meal it was beautifully presented and outstanding in flavour! The menu from drinks to the food was just plenty of variety for everyone! I can't wait to go back again! I would recommend to everyone in my family as I have told everyone had outstanding it was!
The Greedy Goose is, put simply, brilliant. Our family have now eaten five times. Each meal has been delicious, creative and has gone on to be positive subject for discussion. I particularly like the pre-theatre options which are always interesting and enough to keep you going until a late,light supper. The wine list, although quite small, is well chosen. There is always something to accompany the chosen meal. If you haven’t been yet, and you live in the Plymouth area, do go. You will not be disappointed.
Truly a fine dining experience, outstanding food, local produce. Exceptional wine list, attentive but not intrusive service. Very atmospheric and historical building. We dine out alot and have high expectations. This is a memorable experience, we shall certainly return. We highly recommend the Greedy Goose to discerning foodies.
We had a fantastic, creative and outstanding meal here. The service was excellent and the staff very informative. The ambience for an evening meal was perfect. The food, where do I start, I'm not a dessert person but it just got better and better. I had scallops, steak and then a blackberry Eton mess. I left feeling very satisfied and we can't wait to come back soon.
Had a lovely meal celebrating my mums birthday, there was a card waiting for her on the table from the staff which was a lovely added touch. As a family we have been a couple of times when my parents visit. The food is always lovely, this time we had the G+T Battered Fish and Chips and the Stake with Green Peppercorn Source and it was delicious. The Triple Cooked Chips (TCC) were as good if not better than you could imagine! Deserts were also amazing, we had the Bread and Butter Pudding and the Chocolate Mousse, empty plates all round. Lovely staff and brilliant service. Would definitely recommend if you are in Plymouth, celebrating a special occasion or just want to have care free, high quality, delicious meal with attentive staff.
