Description: Situated in the centre of historic Sawbridgeworth, Goose Fat and Garlic offers something for every palate and every occasion. A range of menus caters for everyone from the casual diner looking for a quick lunchtime sandwich, to a business meeting over an a la carte dinner. A set price a la carte menu during the week offers a great dining experience at a very reasonable price, and an authentic tapas menu is a great causal eating option - ideal for groups. The bar attached to the restaurant provides the perfect meeting place for those just wanting a drink, or for pre and post- meal gatherings, and is known for its great cocktails and extensive wine and beer choices. The ambiance is smart but relaxed.

Off the cuff visit on a Friday evening, was quite busy but we did see a few empty tables but were more than happy to sit at the bar.
Ordered porn star martinis and tapas. The cocktails were not the best i have tried but were still drinkable if a bit too sweet.
The tapas was good and a nice selection, we didn't have to wait long for the dishes to arrive typically one at a time like a traditional Spanish restaurant.
Good atmosphere and staff were friendly, couldn't fault the place.

Beautifully prepared new tapas dishes. Had several dishes tonight. Highlights we're paella with monkfish (ordered it twice) for, truffled goat cheese and almonds, prawns and aioli and the Spanish cheeses.
Great crowd and ambience, lovely wines, and generally a top night out.
We're locals, so are spoilt to have it on our doorstep - but I'd travel to have a night like this.
Very special.
Thank you guys.

We visited last week & tried the new Tapas Menu. We had Mussels & Potatoes Bravas as well as lots of other exciting new dishes, Churros for dessert which was naughty but delicious!
The new cocktail menu was great too, my favourite cocktal was a Mai Tai!
The restaurant & bar area looks great & the staff were friendly & efficient, we would recommend this restaurant for a great night out..
