About The Greedy Goose
The Greedy Goose is set in Plymouth’s oldest building, Prysten House, tucked away between the city centre and the barbican. 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 come and eat in style, whether you’re joining us for a light lunch away from the office or a little break from shopping, 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.
We are located just behind St Andrew’s church, on Finewell Street. The restaurant doesn’t have it’s own parking but there is plenty available close by. There is a pay & display car park located next to the restaurant which is available to non permit holders after 6pm.
Lovely friendly service. Great food
The tartar was a bit strong for my girlfriends pallet. That’s me being very picky. Really it was fantastic.
Excellent lunch. Well done.
We felt wet uncomfortable as staff were running back and forth yet there were only 4 tables in our area. We were not given one waitress and this affected the whole exerorinecw as one waitress threw a drink down on the table in passing. One walked of a the table next to us asked for more bread, waitress was going so fast walked into a chair behind her. My husband sat for 10 minuets with no drink had to ask awkwardly as felt I had to put my arm up. We weee not offered water but te table next to us was. We were not given marmite butter but the table next to us was. We felt that because we were a table of two rather than 5 we were not important yet it was my husbands big birthday and we unfortunately chose to spend it with you. We asked for a break between courses yet we had eaten all our food within 45 mins and then given the bill!! Food amazing as usual but we won’t be coming back. Yes you may have been busy with graduation but don’t forget your locals!!
Service haphazard, food and atmosphere ok. You will get better vfm at this price point elsewhere.
Most restaurants come with an idea of what they want to be and they try to enforce it upon the location they’re established. Only a few restaurants allow themselves to be inspired by their location, in return factoring to the location’s evolution through the times. The Greedy Goose is one of such restaurants. The Greedy Goose is Plymouth as much as the Hoe or the Sound, in the sense that the experience it offers would feel incomplete if received elsewhere.
Interesting food well prepared. Nice wine list
I brought my mum in for her birthday and she went away a very happy woman! Amazing food and wonderful, attentive service. Our hostess picked up in our conversation that it was my mums birthday and the team followed our meal up with a little ‘happy birthday chocolate plate’ and card - beautiful little touch!
We had an amazing family meal in the Frater Room. The food was brilliant as usual and chef Tom put a special twist on the hunters chicken, which was part of the menu they created for the meal to accommodate everybody. Some of the guests had not visited before, but they all said they were definitely going to come back. Thank you.
Friendly staff, nice relaxed pace. No rush to move from the pre-lunch drinks at the bar to your table. Lunch was reasonably priced at £5/£10/£5 for starter/mains/dessert. Lovely tasting food. I marginally marked down atmosphere because the old, fixed layout is not naturally the most conducive to creating a positive atmosphere.
Fish was cooked to perfection, and the crispy egg was a real treat!
Absolutely wonderful restaurant with incredibly delicious food and a nice atmosphere. We were told in advance that high chairs aren’t provided which posed no issue as we could bring one but it gave the impression that children weren’t welcome. However, the staff were very friendly and warm on arrival and throughout our meal. The food is divine and we were suitably full by the end! I would say some of the sides are over priced for the amount that you get but the triple cooked chips are the best I’ve ever eaten. The table layout is faultless and visually pleasing as is the aesthetics of the building. Overall, we had a wonderful visit and would definitely go again. The building itself is worth seeing and having a drink in.
