Historical version 4 of Goose
Loads of space. Big outdoor area that is lovely in the summer. However it manages to fill all this space most of the time. This is a pub where there are queues to get in on a Friday evening. That is how full it gets - and mostly with school-age children, it's worth adding.
This is probably due to the cheap drinks. Unfortunately they tend not to be real ales, though they normally have something like Adnams on.
Cheap, hearty food, in some people's opinion (PeteS: The food mings. It's the worst kind of chain-pub nastiness imagineable) Unfortunately the kitchen is a little unreliable in its opening hours (though you are normally safe at lunch time, except for the wait of up to 45 minutes).
