We ate here on a night out and to be honest I found the food to be a bit mediocre. The ribs were OK, not enough sauce on them. The chips were not the best, a bit limp and barely warm. The restaurant was empty but we had to stand there and wait while the staff decided if they had... More

Located just around the corner from the top of the revitalised and gentrified old High Street, Googies is a great restaurant offering locally sourced Kentish fare with an American twist. It offers local, free range, grass fed Dexter beef and a great selection of craft beers on tap, including BrewDog. Disappointingly the pulled pork bun and sliced Dexter brisket had... More

Fourth or fifth time we have eaten here. Very consistent fayre. Great atmosphere and generally the service is good though at peak times it can be a little slow as the kitchen can get a little overwhelmed. My partner and I both had delicious burgers and the usual massive pile of scrummy chips. Too many for either of us to... More

Great location with a real street scene in a skilful pedestrianised part of old Folkestone. This is a real fun place -- great beers, good service and excellent casual cuisine. Nice too see a focus on local produce -- always a plus with me. Our friends loved it, said what a great advert for Folkestone.

Just eaten the best Eggs Benedict of my life - and I've been around a bit! The ham was to die for, the eggs were cooked to perfection, the hollandaise sauce was velvety and the sour dough bread was tasty

First visit to Googies bar and it is a fabulous place. Worlds apart from a Wetherspoons! Amazing selection of beers and a really trendy bistro type ambience and setting! Didn't eat, but the menu looked appetising enough!

So having been very pleased with previous visits I decided to go for a birthday breakfast here with some close friends in anticipation of a great day being New Years Eve and all. I had a very blunt employee on the phone the night before when I was booking a table however I brushed this off and put it down... More

Met up with a friend who has local knowledge of Folkestone, he suggested Googies...... I had a chicken Peri Peri burger which was delicious, really really good, accompanied by a dark ale!! He ate a pulled pork bun which he said was far too sweet and he couldn't finish it, so on the basis of his food coupled with mine... More

Our Christmas shopping expedition ended with burgers, fries, and a brew at Googies. To mark the season Rudolph Burgers were on the menu, a generous Patty of venison topped with cheese and pickle relish. Googies is one of the few places where they know how to cook the meat and retain the juices, a must for a great burger. The... More

Make sure you understand what your customers are requiring and what "deal" if any they have set down for. We came all the way from Peterborough knowing nothing of the deal and looking forward to exploring the menu. Make sure you are aware of this.
