Not to be confused with that other gluttonous bird, the Fat Duck, The Greedy Goose is Plymouth’s most historic fine dining destination
Ben and Francesca Palmer took over Prysten House, the ancient building that previously housed Tanners a year ago and have kept its fans, while attracting a whole new set.
VISIT FOR authentic, modern British cooking from Ben and his young brigade. Beautifully prepared dishes are the epitome of entertaining cooking – think pumpkin soup served in a Kilner jar with a waft of smoke as you open it. Get the full experience in the tasting menu with matched wine flight.
DON’T VISIT to catch up on your emails over lunch – three foot thick walls mean no Wi-Fi.
WE LIKED the ‘mostly red’ or ‘mostly white’ matched wine flights, so you can choose the flight to suit your palate.
INSIDER’S TIP get a great value taste of the Goose when you visit at lunchtime, as there’s an additional menu at just £10 for two courses and £12 for three.
