Great Pub - review by happyman
Went to the Goat for their new carvery on Sunday. Was very impressed with the whole thing. Good food at a very reasonable price, very well kept beer and a good wine list for the wives. The children were happy too, with their free coke refills. The staff were very good, helpful and happy. After lunch they found us a table in the front games room, where the kids stayed amused with some of the board games and we watched a great game of football on a very large TV with an amazing picture. Will definitely be coming back. 27 Oct 14

This pub is so good - review by hooter
I have been going to the Goat for over a year and have always found all of the staff really nice and friendly. The beer is always in good nick and the food's really good too. The Sunday lunches are marvelous.They are family friendly during the day now so I can even take the wife (who likes the choice of wines) and kids on a Saturday afternoon for a spot of lunch and watch a bit of football while the kids play a board game. Fantastic!! Well done the Goat. [May 13] 05 May 13

Definitely gone down hill... - review by hannahro

I used to love the Goat but it really has gone down hill.... The food is pretty bad and over priced and all the staff are rude. I don't think I have seen any of them smile for a good year or so. I am boycotting it!! [Feb 10]

Going ... or gone ... downhill - review by cranford

I'm with the last reviewer on the sulky bar staff - perhaps we were there on the same night! Also - the quality of food has really taken a dive. We used to go to the Goat fairly regularly for traditional pub food - nothing fancy, pies, fish and chips etc, but tasty. We went a while ago and I was disappointed. We gave them another try last week, and my fish and chips were truly grim. My husband's pork was basically indeterminate meat swimming in gravy with undercooked roasties. Needs to pull its socks up or will surely be going the way of so many pubs nowadays. [Oct 09]

Come on barmaid, a smile costs nothing! - review by poodey

The Goat is a lovely pub, loads of nooks and crannies perfect for the various little meetings/get togethers which were happening there last night. But it's really let down by possibly the most miserable staff I've ever encountered in a pub. Sullen, sulky, and so downcast - come on people, how much does it cost to look a customer in the eye, smile and maybe (shock horror) say please or thank you? Making customers feel like they are hugely inconveniencing you by asking for a pint is not on. Hence the miserable one-star rating. [Sep 09]
