I've never had a hot chocolate quite like the one they do in Googies! My friend and I needed a breather from shopping and fancied a nice hot drink. We both ordered a white hot chocolate and a selection of the cake on display next to the till. Everything was absolutely fantastic! We will be coming back to try one... More

Arrived for lunch and was welcomed by friendly staff who were attentive. Ordering food and drinks was easy. The staff were well informed about all the food on the menu and specials. As a vegan this was brilliant as I could make a decision quickly! My friend ordered bangers and mash with chilli jam and I had the vegan burger... More

We had a works do here, we had a nice area set aside catering for a large party. The bar was staffed on an ad hoc basis but met our needs adequately, the beer selection is very good catering for most tastes. We had pre-ordered our meals so apart from a few additional starters everything was good to go. I... More

A friend bought me to googies for a birthday lunch. We had seen an old menu online which differed from the menu they had. When we enquired about the burger we wanted (which wasn't on the new menu) the waiter was extremely helpful and told us that he could get the kitchen to make it for us regardless. The food... More

No problem as she was very apologetic & accidents happen, but then me and guy on next table had to move tables & clear up the mess, again no problem. But it... More
