Papa Goose is a linear yet expansive space that has been thoughtfully laid out with a good view of the open kitchen and the bustling lane. It’s bolstered by two smart private dining rooms and a great sibling up the stairs, Mary Fortune, a stylish long bar for those seeking great liquid refreshment.
Owner-chef Neale White honed his skills with Gordon Ramsey and Marcus Wareing at their London dining landmark, Aubergine. His valuable experience ensures the menu is dedicated to local, sustainable produce cooked using slow-food philosophy and contemporary techniques.
Modern British food has always been the focus at Papa Goose, but over time some Italian influences have crept in. So expect to find a pasta or two alongside classic Brit fare such as Aylesbury duck and roasts.
The wine list offers a generous by-the-glass selection if you're in to take advantage of the express lunch menu, and plenty of familiar Australian bottles if you're settling in for the long haul.
