Quiet Sunday afternoon 28th with little Fella and choices according to him & trip advisor really Aspendos or Googies. First thing that struck me was (Owner/Manager) Keith very welcoming and friendly. Second thing a little organised chaos with some staff. We moved from outside to in due to threatening clouds with one gracious lady only to be quizzed once moved... More

Unexpected find. Something for everyone in our parry of 6. Wonderful, extensive menu. Wish I could have tried everything! Lovely, relaxed atmosphere and a fitting, modern style of decor. Chilli beef nachos are to die for. Fussiest restaurant critique ever calls it "fantastic"! A true gem, not to be missed out on.

Polite and friendly staff. Apologised for delay on food even though it only took 10 minutes. Food was very tasty and filling

It is with a heavy heart I write this review. Googies has lost it's charm. Has it changed management? On the plus side, the venue is lovely, and the bar extension is fab. It has a great selection of beers and cocktails. It's such a shame that the service was painfully slow (20min wait for our round of 4 drinks... More

Popped in for a burger and a few drinks which they failed to charge me for. Excellent quality but the chips were somewhat burnt. Nice ales. Slightly surprised by the numbers who turned up as they were short staffed

We stopped by for a coffee. Quick service with nice seating outside to enjoy sunshine. Has changed a lot since 2013 my last visit its unique qwerky feel with old books, games and piano are gone which were charming. But still a very nice eatery and coffee bar. There is an extended bar next door.

This place gets better every time i visit - great food, great vibe and great drinks. Food menu is quite pricey, but you get what you pay for - hand made burgers in brioche buns. Will definitely visit again soon!
