We visited The Geese having seen all of the rave reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed! So often roast dinners can be disappointing and it's rare that every aspect is done well, but the one we had at The Geese was practically perfect in...More

Five of us for Sunday Lunch. This is a real old world pub in the hilly Hanover area of Brighton which is populated by young people. The Geese has made a success of providing good wholesome food at reasonable prices and has built a reputation...More

Great selection of Ale. Very friendly barman. You can choose you sausage, choose your mash and choose your gravey! What more could you want! Great Pub in a great part of Brighton!

Regular visitors to the geese. Can't fault the sausage and mash on the offer on Wednesday. Roasts are one of the best in Brighton. Do need to book or get in early though as often fully booked

Absolutely delicious roast dinner. Pork belly was perfect, gravy was rich and scrumptious, veg crunchy yet cooked, piggies were immense. Service was fab. Stuffing was slightly herby but still yum. Highly recommended. The tits
