Alan Winfield left this review about The Goose

The Goose is a large pub which faces Wood Green tube station,so very handy for the first drink on my crawl of the area.
Once inside there is a large single curved room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,the seating normal tables and chairs and some tall tables and chairs,the left side is down one step,this area is smarter and carpeted and has comfy looking bench seating,there is a darts board to the front right and a pool table and bar football table to the rear left.
There were two real ales on the bar on my Saturday morning visit,i had a drink of London Pride which went down well after a fairly long journey down here.
Background music was playing.
I was quite happy having a drink in this pub.

Situated directly opposite Wood Green tube station, this is a large Stonegate pub that doesn't really need to put in much effort to attract customers. You enter to a spacious bare boarded area with the servery running along the rear wall. To the right there is a decent seating space with one long curved banquette and plenty of standard tables and chairs. The décor is a mix of floral wallpaper and a covering designed to look like a large bookcase and at the far end there is a space set aside for a dartboard. The room has been broken up by a number of pillars and sections of former partitioning wall, hinting at a former layout, although there is little left from such an incarnation. One such feature can be seen over on the left hand side, where some pleasant frosted and stained front windows can be found - an attractive sight when approaching the pub from outside. The left side of the pub is on a slightly lower carpeted level and has button backed banquettes down the end wall and more floral wallpaper. The room extends a way to the rear on the left hand side of the bar, where a mix of banquette and tub chair seating can be found as well as a pool table. The whole pub has been decorated with various mirrors, old pictures and even a miniature Wood Green sign, whilst TV screens dotted around the room were showing horse racing with other sports action promoted on posters and boards. A sign pointed to a beer garden at the rear of the building, but I didn't explore on this visit.
There were three handpulls in action, offering Sharps Doom Bar, Fullers London Pride and Wychwood Hobgoblin. I opted for a pint of the latter, served up by one of the friendly bar staff who were notably more efficient than their peers in the Wetherspoons over the road. Sadly their beer wasn't as good as that over the road, in terms of either selection or quality.
This is a pretty run of the mill place that was probably a very interesting and pleasant place to drink, but now has a very corporate, chain bar feel to it. I thought it was a decent enough place for a quick drink before jumping on the tube, but it's not somewhere I would ever see myself lingering beyond a swift pint.
