Although the goose was delicious I thought the price was too high, therefore not good value. Not including the liver and heart etc.is not acceptable at the price you charge.

Delicious - cooked it exactly as you suggested and it was perfect.

First time we have had goose - everyone loved the rich moist taste. Very easy to thaw and cook.

One goose was excellent of the two ordered, although I was surprised to not find giblets. the second goose was very badly butchered. Please see attached photograph. Again no giblets.
ThIs one finished up resembling a sort of Frankistein version of a Frankenstein goose by the time I had finished....

Past experience has been good. The prospect of taking delivery of a rotting duck and goose sometime after Christmas was not good - it was unprintable.
