I have visited this restaurant on several occasions since moving to the area. We decided to book a table for 4 on New Year's Eve . I mentioned it to another friend and her and her husband also sat next to us. I would like to point out that the food was as allways delicious. However, I was so disappointed... More

We really enjoyed having a late afternoon lunch on Christmas Day, the first time we have not cooked it ourselves. There was a great atmosphere when we arrived in the bar for some pre-dinner champagne and the staff Alex and Daisy did a superb job managing the throng. The food was excellent as always and there was no hint of... More

Dinner for two in this lovely busy restaurant on New Year's Eve. They had low key live music playing which created a lovely atmosphere. The food couldn't have been better, I had fillet steak which was cooked to perfection and my partner had halibut. We had extra potatoes as we read the menu and the halibut came without any potatoes... More

I have visited Goose Fat and Garlic many times over the years but after our experience on Xmas day, I will not be returning. We had a lovely starter and sorbet but when our main courses arrived, I had the beef which looked lovely but my partner had the halibut which came with 2 raw carrots and 3 new potatoes.... More

The menu in the Goose Fat and Garlic is fantastic, there is also a Tapas option available which you can order if you sit at the bar. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's a good place to go with friends, family or as a couple. It's a licensed premise in the evenings and staffed by SIA security, it's... More

We've eaten here four times now and each time the food has been excellent and the staff just great. Last night seven of us ate and we had a great meal which was really added to by the lovely staff team.

Heard great number of good reviews and decided to make a visit. We had a table of 4 booked for 830 and arrived shortly before. Once we placed our order, it took over 45 minutes for our mains to arrive after our starters. We had a taxi booked and we thought that we had allocated sufficient time for our meal... More

Just been for dinner with friends, without exception we all loved our food. The prawns were delicious, the monkfish with mash was gorgeous and the creme brullee was very nice. This was my second visit and I hope it's not my last.
