    Great cosy venue with relaxed vibes. Staff were very accommodating to our pet dog. Excellent drink selection. It was convenient to order dinner from local businesses & then enjoy it at The Fat Goat who provided cutlery, plates & everything we required to have a mn enjoyable dinner.

    "Female waitress was very rude. Booking was confirmed for an inside table but when we arrived we were rudely told there was none available and we had to sit outside. Bar staff - lack of knowledge of the products they were selling. We would normally recommend the Fat Goat and have done so in the past. However, last night experience was disappointing and would be cautious recommending moving forward.

    Love going here whether it be to pick up some takeaway beers from the bottle shop or to stay in with some local meals. Always great fresh beers on tap.

    I did book a table on the deck but I assume a function was on and we were moved to the street.

    Booked 4 days in advance, turned up 5 minutes before our confirmed booking time to be told they hadn’t reserved our table with no apology, staff confirmed it was booked in their system and I saw it when he looked it up. We were offered a small table put right at the door and in the middle of the long queues to the bar with no apology and rude attitude. There were other reserved tables but when I asked why we couldn’t take one of those, I was ironically told they were reserved! We were advised if our table became available he would let us know. We moved ourselves when we noticed a free table outside (as we had booked) and cleaned it ourselves. Bar service was slow, and it was way too busy for the size of the bar, very noisy and people constantly having to wait for the toilets. Bar itself doesn’t serve food but you can order from local take away places to be delivered and the pizza was fantastic. But this place does not deserve the credit for that.
    The Fat GoatResponded on 29 December 2023
    I'm sorry you had a poor experience but glad you were able to enjoy the local pizza. We had an unusually busy Sunday between 5 and 7pm on the 17th December due to the annual Upwey night market being on. You were booked to arrive at 6:45pm but arrived 30 minutes early which is why your allocated table was not yet available. The staff seated you in the temporary area to accommodate your early arrival. We are usually more attentive to re-seat customers, however on this occasion our staff were run off their feet for a couple of hours due to the market and it being the last trading Sunday before Xmas. I do hope you understand - the festive season is a rollercoaster for hospitality, especially for popular little venues like the Fat Goat.
