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.

We had an excellent night and the food (all 11 course!) was outstanding. All the staff were attentive and none intrusive which was perfect. We had paired wine with our meal which was always perfectly matched with just the right amount of description on what we were getting. All in all excellent food, wine and service, I will definitely be back and recommend to friends and family.

Service was not great! Also could not use the outdoor area as private functions. Wrote on reservation that it was a birthday and then waitress said if I had known it was birthday we could have done a cake however they did know. Nice food though.

Excellent food and wine. The service was very friendly and the servers were not only knowledgeable about the food and wine, but also about the historical surroundings. A great evening all round

The food was outstanding but the service could do with being tweaked, Were greated on arrival but all a bit rushed, The waitress was very young so it may come with experience.

Our favourite restaurant in Plymouth. Great service and the quality of the food is always incredible. Lunch menu of 3 courses for £13 is unbeatable value for money.

We had another very pleasant evening at the GG but ... I again had to ask several times for the music to be turned down - having Florence Welch bellowing across the room was both distracting and made it hard ( for my old ears) to hear my companions properly. I honestly don't think the atmosphere here needs too much gingering up. Perhaps a bit of quiet instrumental ambient music might be more the thing? Food very good, as always, but we felt that portion size had declined a bit. My lamb was OK but the portions of fish (plaice, I think) looked a bit meagre.

Aside from a really good meal I thought the staff were superb, excellent service without being over the top. I was entertaining a very important overseas guest and a member of staff took the trouble to tell our visitor a little of the history, show the courtyard and give a leaflet regarding the history. Really good atmosphere and the aged beef..........to die for! Thanks!

The best meal we’ve had in Plymouth. Excellent value on Tuesday taster night, and good value wines by the glass. Very welcoming staff. Our only quibbles would be that the crab dish could have done with some of the red crab meat in it, as the white crab meat could not be tasted through the other flavours of the dish; and the banoffee pie didn’t get the filling/pastry balance right. All other courses were vg and risotto, tomatoes, chicken liver parfait and haddock scotch egg were excellent.

The girl who served us wasn't very friendly but the man was very helpful and smiley. Definitely would come again for the 3 courses for £13 offer which was such good value for money.

We don't normally leave reviews but felt we had to. On arrival we were asked if we wanted to sit at the table they had reserved for us, or as it was such a warm evening whether we would prefer to eat al fresco in their secluded courtyard. The staff quickly made up a table in the courtyard and if we thought it couldn't get better we would be wrong. Complementary appetizers, food and drink was exceptional and staff attentive throughout. We had a fabulous evening and would recommend The Greedy Goose to anyone. Thank you to the team at The Greedy Goose and we will be sure to return.
