Quiet atmosphere. Parking.
The staff. Quality of the food.
Having heard so much about the Goose in Oxfordshire, I was overjoyed to look forward to a birthday/Sunday lunch there yesterday.
How disappointing to find the beef almost stone cold on arrival, and when I asked for a fresh one, I got the same one back, micro-waved hot plates and all, that was passed-off as a fresh one! The staff even said it had not been re-heated, but the slice I had tried was evident, along with frazzled Yorkshire pudding.
It eventually re-surfaced as an undercooked couple of slices of raw meat. For a neighbouring table, the waitress didn't even know what the soup of the day was, and took about 5 minutes to find out, prompting the diner to suggest "Perhaps I should have asked her an easier question".
This over-priced imitation "Gastro-pub" is not recommended.
