The Fat Goose

Heath Road, TENDRING, CO16 0BX

1 rosettes

The family-run Fat Goose is the kind of place where the kitchen bakes its own bread and local ingredients figure large on the menu. It's a restaurant, not a pub, but it still has an easy-going vibe and the interior blends old and new with aplomb, so expect slate floors, exposed beams and well-spaced wooden tables, and a warming wood-burning stove in the cooler months. The straight-talking menu kicks off with prawn and scallop ravioli, followed by Gressingham duck breast with passionfruit sauce. For dessert there's summer berry pudding with peach ice cream. There's a daily specials board, a deli and a kids' menu, too.
