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.

I love the Greedy Goose and judge it the best restaurant in Plymouth. The set lunch is such good value that it is a suitable venue for everyday and not just special occasions. This time they were very busy because of graduation week so we risked the disappointment of missing dessert because of the 2-hour car parking limit, but our waitress without fuss sorted it for us. Thank you once again.

Went to The Greedy Goose for my partners birthday, had the three course lunch for £13 per head, been several times to the Pierre Bistro in Royal William yard, but as we had been in the City decided to try The Greedy Goose and it was faultless. The staff are polite and welcoming, linen napkins and clean cutlery placed by the staff as taught at college. The food was first class, portion size was inline with the price and very tasty. I had the amuse bouche which was a cheddar cheese ball with mayonnaise , the goats cheese and beetroot salad, salmon with crushed new potatoes and for dessert chocolate brownie with ginger ice cream.

will be returning in the near future.
