Simply the best place to eat in Folkestone

My wife and I are looking to move to Folkestone and Googies is fast becoming one of the main reasons for me. The care that goes into the food is evident from everything I have tried and you will be hard pushed to find a better burger in the capital. Sauces are homemade and the Dexter beef is... read more

Popped in for some brunch with the girlfriend as not been before we were greeted with a smile from the young female waitress and a gormless looking stare from the older guy (who we found out to be the owner ) We then witnessed some ranting and raving from the owner first on his mobile in full view and earshot...

Visited Googies for the first time! Well it certainly won't be the last.... Service great. Food absolutely fantastic. What a great find, the staff & owner were great. Very chatty & don't seem to miss a trick. The burgers are great & I'm not a burger lover. My hubby is a chef & is never really that happy whenever we... More

Everything was great and in general I do like this place a lot. Really good food and service. My only slight critisim is that from certain tables towards the back of restaurant you can see downstairs and it's a bit messy and off putting. Maybe it was just a bad day when I visited, not sure. I would have voted... More

Thank goodness for Googies! In a town where a sandwich shop tops the Trip Advisor list you'd be forgiven for thinking the town had nowhere to eat at all. Googies is an oasis of a place in Rendezvous Street - They have hung in there admirably as the businesses surrounding them have gone to the wall over the years and... More

Popped in today for lunch with family and we all enjoyed our food thoroughly. Really tasty burgers with lots of flavour, crispy chips and onion rings. Will definitely return if I visit Folkestone again.

A very nice place to have a tasty burger with some local ale selection. Since there was a large group of people who were celebrating birthday, staff suggested that they would take our order before them so we would not have to wait, which is very considerate. Burger was very tasty, and surprisingly big beer and ale selection.
