About The Greedy Goose

Please note that due to Covid-19 & the layout of our building, we have made the incredibly difficult decision not to open quite yet.
We are currently planning to open up from 4th September, opening only on Friday & Saturday evenings, for either our 7 or 11 course tasting menus only, with prepayment required. The Greedy Goose unfortunately doesn’t bode well for any social distancing & therefore we have had to make this incredibly difficult decision to keep our customers & staff safe.

We really hope you understand, and look forward to welcoming you in the near future.

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 enjoy either our 7 or 11 course tasting menus, for dinner with friends or family, a romantic night out, or a big celebration.

The Greedy Goose opened in November 2014 and was 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.

WE WERE VERY APPRECIATIVE THAT FRANCESCA HONOURED OUR GIFT VOUCHER. IN THIS CURRENT ENVIRONMENT THEIR HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES WERE VERY GOOD. AUTOMATIC HAND GET INSIDE THE DOOR AND THE SEATING WAS SPREAD OUT SO THAT NO ONE WAS SAT TOO CLOSELY TOGETHER...WE DID NOT HAVE TO WAIT IN THE FOYER BUT WERE SHOWN RIGHT TO THE TABLE. THE STAFF WERE REALLY LOVELY, HAPPY AND ACCOMODATING. SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. THE MEAL WAS IMPECABLE AND OF A HIGH QUALITY. IT WAS FRESH, HOT AND TASTY. WE HOPE THAT WHEN THIS CRISIS IS OVER THE GREEDY GOOSE CAN RECOVER ECONOMICALLY. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN THE FUTURE. GOOD LUCK

Although we visited the restaurant amid the Covid 19 crisis the staff were very professional in their attitude and super friendly. We really enjoyed our evening.

As a treat for our Anniversary we enjoyed a fabulous 11 course taster meal last night. A wonderful warm welcome and superb service from staff who are quite obviously passionate about the food they serve. Will definitely be returning soon.

Sunday lunch has extra wow factor bits to distinguish from more ordinary venues. Also, the range of vegetables included was superb. Price is also very competitive. Much better Sunday lunch than Boringdon Hall, and service much better as well

Fantastic service and we had the pre theatre menu.The building is lovely, relaxed atmosphere. The food was good, we were a little disappointed by the options on the menu as similar to The Treasury and was expecting something a little more special than a burger or macaroni but was still good value for money. Would go back to try the tasting menu which looked great but obviously more expensive.

A wonderful restaurant! The staff are excellent, very welcoming and brilliant at explaining the extensive food choices. This restaurant caters for all budgets! From great value £15 for 3 course Pre-show meals to full 11 course taster menus with wine, all delicious! Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner whilst visiting Plymouth

Came for a weekday lunch while visiting Plymouth. Had a little trouble finding it, as the street was being worked on in advance of the Mayflower 400th anniversary, but the challenge was well rewarded. Terrific food, friendly and efficient service.

The early evening menu is very limited as you'd expect with a set menu and the portion sizes small however I was comfortably full at the end of my meal. Unfortunately the temperature was slightly cooler than I'd like, just not comfortable. Very polite and pleasant staff.

We have been looking for a restaurant to use through the year, yesterday was our low key 39 Wedding Anniversary. Your attention to detail is splendid EG the butter was at a spreadable consistency, rare indeed! The staff friendly, helpful, but not intrusive. My Baked Cod dish, perfect flakes. Happy punters!

Really raised my bar for what good food is, not a single bad dish and considering what the same level of dining would cost in London a bargain I’d say.

The three course set menu was good value for money. The food was creatively cooked and well presented. Portions were smaller than average, but appropriate to the price. We all absolutely loved the rhubarb mousse with ginger ice cream.
