First, but certainly not the last, time we've eaten here. On arrival we were swiftly shown to our table, furnished with menus and a drinks order taken. Plenty of choice on the menu and we went for burgers of various kinds, which seem to be the speciality, with a side of beer battered onion rings... read more

My partner and I had a rare night out tonight and thought we would see where the evening took us, we saw Googies was open still for dinner so thought we should check out the hype.

Hi Sorry you didn't appreciate the double fried hand cut chips using Kent Potatoes cooked in Kent rapeseed oil. Or the Free range Grass Fed Dexter beef reared locally at Sladden farm, less than 10 minutes drive from us of which we have full exclusivity. All our produce is of excellent providence. Always worth checking the providence of your food... More

Title says it all really. An uninterested guy took our order. Seemed a bit put out when one of our party changed their mind whilst ordering. It was as if the guy had better things to do then stand there and take an order. Got shown to a table where the girl was clearing it from the last sitting. She... More

Had a wonderful lunch yesterday. We were dealt with so warmly and politely. A real pleasure. Menu is really nice and inviting. A bit pricey, but food was plentiful, and really delicious. Cant do it often, but worth every penny.

My partner and I had a lovely lunch here for my birthday. We each chose a burger and fries with side salad. They were both absolutely delicious. Service was fast, efficient and friendly! Thank you Googies!

We took 3 different burgers and it was awesome. The prices are expansive but it is really good food. The decoration is nice and service is cool. I'll visit it again.

Such a shame. Googies has changed: the coffee is still really, really good. I used to enjoy reading the paper or chatting. But now there is oppressively loud music. The three of us couldn't hear one another. Two young children at a table nearby had their fingers in their ears. It's styling itself like a London bar with background music... More

Hi Andrew Can you let me know what day and time this was? We do up the music in the evenings as this fits in with the evening vibe. However during the day it should be just background. We we will always turn it down if customers request too. I can be emailed at googiesartcafe@yahoo.co.uk Many Thanks Keith More
