We went in for a snack and a few drinks, we were seated quickly but then had to wait 15 minutes for our drink orders. In this time I decided not to eat and was ready to leave. We ordered 2 milkshakes, when they arrived they were warm £11 for this unpleasant visit

The beef, gravy and assorted vegetables were delicious. Service was friendly but very haphazard which was a shame as the food was so good

Two of us had soup which was very good and two had nachos which I was told were also good. We all had burgers, the choice on the menu was so inviting I could happily have ordered most of them. Which were very tasty and the other orders coming out of the kitchen looked really nice. The bill was also... More

I have eaten here a few times and even though the food has been good the service needs a lot of work. I have just experienced waiting 45 minutes for two mojito's and a Bloody Mary. The staff didn't seem to bothered that we waited so long. Have now decided that I am going to stay away from this place... More

We decided to come to Folkestone for the day and after walking around for a while found Googies on the edge of the high street. We both ordered burgers and were not disappointed when they arrived. They were beautiful gourmet burgers served with the tastiest chips! The service was friendly too! When we got the bill we got another surprise...... More

You have not experienced a good burger unless you've had one from here. Everything was cooked to perfection and we didn't have to wait very long for food.

We had breakfast at Googies and the choice of dishes was good and interesting. We tried different sandwiches and they were tasty and generous. This could not be said of the coffee which came in small cups. The prices were OK.

Hi Linda Thank you for your review and hi-lighting the excellent quality of our food, this is of course why we are always so busy. Looking back at our reviews, I feel most people are complimentary about our service, occasionally things can go wrong which can be caused by several factors. It was myself that followed up on your mains,... More

Visited today and had very bad experience with service. Went with 2 other friends and sat outside. Ordered drinks with food and was told there was no hot dogs so we all ordered 3 chips as none of us like burgers (not very difficult order to get wrong obviously), however when food came they managed to somehow have got chips...

Hi Katie I do recall this incident and I'm sorry that on this occasion, you had a bad experience at Googies.
