We visited Googies today and were thoroughly disappointed, upset and dissatisfied with the customer service. Total waiting time 1 hour and a quarter before burgers arrived, with no attempt by the staff to let us know about the delay. Clearly the staff neglected the order, which was not a complicated one. Other tables were served, ate and left before our... More

We stopped here for a bite to eat and as we were on holidays to take the opportunity of the wifi. The salads that we had were very generous servings and tasted great. The service was friendly. The wifi very very slow. Maybe shouldn't advertise it. The toilets desperately in need of some TLC. Heading in the right direction though.... More

Wonderful plate of three locally reared Dexter beefsteaks with a tasty glass of Rioja to enhance the flavours. Helpful and friendly staff created an evening to savour.

I hate to start on a bad note, but how long have these toilets been like this? If it were my restaurant it would have been made priority by now as they are truly grim. Service was OK, they all seem keen but the waiter did try and give our food to the table next to us, perhaps a little... More

Came on a Saturday night for a drink, left after some great tasting food and an excellent craft lager. Friendly service, well put together food and excellent drinks options. Thanks, we'll come again.

Stopped for a salad, but the Ham Egg and chips looked too good to miss, service was quick and efficient. What I liked most was the good choice of good quality speciality teas.

We had a very nice dinner at Googies on a quiet Tuesday. But special offer: a real big burger with a nice foreign beer for only £9.95. Nice and friendly peoples!

Arrived on a sat evening and managed to get a table. The burgers are amazing and such good value, onion rings were also fantastic. The coctails were great the waiter even made us a new one as they didnt do any that we liked. Overall the service, quality and value was excellent.
