The Goose, U.K.

(The Goose at Britwell Salome is Temporarily Closed and Chef Ryan Simpson and some of the former staff are looking for a “New Opportunity”).
Members of the staff are in a dispute with the owner regarding the direction of future operations for the one-time pub.  The Goose had lost its one-Michelin star after Matthew Tomkinson left for the Montagu Arms in Beaulieu in the New Forest, The Goose had just recently regained its Michelin star back, due to the hard work of Chef Ryan Simpson and his team. Now Ryan and some of his staff in both the back and front-of-the-house have decided to quit after hearing that the present owner wanted to turn the fine dining restaurant back into a pub.
