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 its 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.

A first time visit to the Greedy Goose, we were intrigued and curious to see such good value lunchtime menu at only £13. We expected it to be good as the reputation of the Greedy Goose is excellent. We weren’t disappointed. My fish main course was excellent. Whatever the chef did it Worked. The components came together beautifully. Incidentally there was an accident at the start of the meal when the waiter spilled a glass of white wine on myself and the table. The response was just excellent. I was apologized to and taken care of immediately. The poor waiter was mortified. But accidents happen. It’s the response that matters and it was more than good enough to ensure we’ll visit again. So thank you.

Absolutely amazing service from everyone at Greedy Goose from the moment we walked through the door. Felt very welcomed. Waiters were very good with talking me through the menu and changing it for me due to being pregnant. I would recommend this place to anybody who wants good food and good service!

We went to the Greedy Goose for their 'taster tuesdays' offer and it was fantastic. The food was excellent, and they dealt very well with my dietary requirements with some guidance. The staff were friendly and it was surprisingly full for a Tuesday which gave it a good atmosphere. We were very impressed and would certainly go again. The food was imaginative and the flavours were beautifully balanced and delicate. Great wine list too!

Food is always so good when I go, the 3 for 13 menu is amazing, although more veg with the main would be great. As always I'll return!

The meal had quality ingredients, but somehow lacked real flavour. A little underwhelming despite the obvious amount of work in the kitchen.

I always enjoy eating at this restaurant, the food served is at a very high standard, and the options on the menu available to the customer are second to none.

It took an hour to receive our starters 3 of us chose monkfish - but it had run out so we were given whiting- which was bland, skin was not crispy and was expensive- also ran out of calamari and had to have whitebait No hand towels in toilet either and we were cold

Had trouble booking a table. Unreturned phone call twice, and unresponsive email. Food was fabulous, no issues at all. A great shame, disappointing, that we were overcharged on our bill.....We had 2 large glasses of wine with the meal....NOT 3...We went off to the theatre, right after the meal, and were unable to query the bill. Living in Looe, I called the next morning to explain the overcharging of £7! I am still awaiting a reply....

We decided to try out the set menu and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and talkative. The food was lovely and incredible value for money. Pros: The whiting was excellent, as was the celeriac risotto. The skin on the chicken breast was crispy and full of flavour. Areas for improvement: Personally, I would have liked the wasabi gel to have more of a kick and the chutney was a bit too sweet for my liking. However, these are very minor points and did not spoil what was a lovely lunch in a good setting. If you are thinking about trying the set menu, it's well worth it. You'd be hard pressed to find a good quality meal anywhere in Plymouth for the same price. We will definitely return.

Food was lovely - waiter made a special effort to ask how my husband's birthday was when I popped to the Ladies. Very calm atmosphere, we were not rushed in any way, which was lovely. I hate it that some restaurants need to turn around the tables quickly, but I didn't feel that here. We have been before a couple of years ago and again, the food was outstanding, and staff happy to serve and make conversation. Thank you Fanny for convincing us to rebook after I read some negative comments, we have rebooked again for lunch in March. I advise future customers, if you aren't happy with anything, please raise it at the time to give the restaurant staff opportunity to put right. I'm sure they would prefer you have a positive visit than go away and not give them the chance to ensure you have a lovely time.
