girl + goose

Up until very recently I only thought of The Goose in Busselton as a great destination for breakfast. When living in the south west it was one of our favourite spots for weekend breakfast. The food was always ace, my favourite breakfast dish is still their eggs florentine, and you can’t beat the view of the Busselton Jetty with those crystal blue waters that made it look like a photoshop-ed postcard from the tourist centre.

However my most recent trips to The Goose have made me realise there’s so much more to this place than just eggs.

It’s not just a restaurant …

Wiggling away from it’s perception as only a restaurant, The Goose has recently added “beach bar + kitchen” to it’s title to reflect the venue’s more casual atmosphere. Lounges and tall bar tables invite you to drop in for a drink and a nibble. The outside decking is irrestistable, what could be a better way to end a working day than this …

Now that’s a beer list …

A diverse and interesting list of tap beers is what every beer loving geek looks for when they walk up to the bar. The Goose has nailed it with twelve taps in constant rotation showcasing predominately local brews from the likes of Colonial Brewing, Eagle Bay Brewing and Cowaramup Brewing.

The bottled beer list is pretty good too. There’s still Hahn Super Dry and Corona for those inclined but there’s also Brooklyn Brown Ale, Anchor Steam and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale to satisfy your American craft beer cravings.

You can check out a full list of their beverages here – this is probably best viewed with a drink in your hand just incase you get thirsty.

The food is still tops …

Just cause they’ve gone a little more casual doesn’t mean the food has been neglected.

In short – stop by, take a compulsory Instagram of the jetty and settle in for a pint of local beer and relax; after all you are in the south west.
