About Us

Welcome to the fat goose! We are a family run country pub/restaurant, situated in the rural village of Tendring, we can offer a country escape, only minutes off the A120. 

We pride ourselves on serving food to the highest standard with a relaxed yet attentive and friendly service.
We are also delighted to announce that we have retained our AA rosette for culinary excellence for the eighth consecutive year.

All of our dishes are created on the premises and we only use the best ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible. Our menu changes every six weeks or so to take advantage of seasonal produce and to ensure there are always new and exciting dishes for you to try. We have daily changing blackboards with fresh fish 
and specials, and offer a weekly changing set menu Tuesday to Friday for lunch and dinner, at only £11.95 for 2 courses or £14.95 for 3 courses.

We welcome well behaved children and offer baby changing facilities, highchairs and booster seats. The children's menu offers dishes prepared to the same high standards using totally natural ingredients.

Looking for a venue to host a larger group of family or friends? Our ‘John Edward' private dining room would be perfect for you. The room can accommodate 22 people around one table or 32 people across three tables. It is named in memory of my late father and is one of the few venues in the area able to seat so many people around one table.  It's perfect for family celebrations, meal with friends, buffets or intimate weddings - all with no venue charge! 

We look forward to welcoming you to the fat goose at Tendring.
