Having just signed in to the Great Burstin we ran out looking for civilisation and found Googies at the top of the hill. Dexter's meat was being shouted out from the window as local sourced and having seen a salad be placed on tge table we went in. The staff are friendly, polite and helpful, a place to take your...

The quality of the burgers is good and the taste is delicious! They use many local and homemade products, like the beef and chips. The nachos (starter) were excellent! Staff is friendly and helpful. Prices are quite high though.

I have to say I love Eggs Benedict with a passion but I now have a new passion - Eggs Pulled Pork!! Set in the Artistic Quarter of Folkestone this is a great place to breakfast and a great coffee spot whilst you look around the galleries and shops... just don't expect much of the harbour!

When you fancy a burger no where else can beat goodies. We were greedy and had yummy steak and smoky beetroot slaw but regretted it cos burgers fill you up. Worth going to for vietnamese coffee or true USA milkshakes or even deep fried mars bar pieces. All heart attacks on a plate but sometimes needs must. YUM

We wandered in after a slightly disappointing search for somewhere to eat in walking up from the harbour Googles was a bit of a find. Home made burgers were exceptional. My partner chose choc brownies and they were stand out wow. All home made and excellent

Another day on holiday another day wondering where to eat. I asked someone in Folkstone where they would take their family and they said "out of Folkstone". I chuckled but swiftly got my phone out to see what TripAdvisor said. Just as I got to Googies in the list, a woman came up to me who had overheard my questioning,... More

I try and visit this place as often as I can, my favourite place to eat in Kent! The food is amazing, service is always brilliant and everyone is always very welcoming. Always recommending Googies to everyone I know!

We were initially attracted to this place because they served Dexter beef from Sladden farm. We have had this beef on several occasions and purchased it myself direct from the farm. It is firmly at the top of the types of Beef I have tried, but had never tried it in burger form.. We were not disappointed. I don’t think... More
