If you enjoy luke warm coffee and dry cakes then this is the place for you. Not good enough to compete with other local independent cafe's so I won't be returning

Visited Googies after hearing a lot of people praising it. The service was good enough and the place itself is nice and roomy. But the food itself was rather disappointing for the price. I paid £16 for the rack of ribs and wish I hadn't bothered, there was just about no meat on them at all. My friends had various... More

Visited between Xmas and the new year. We popped in for coffee and cake with a few friends. Stood at the door for about 20 mins waiting for a table to be cleaned, it wasn't that busy at the time, approx 3.30pm. At least 3 different members of staff asked us if we were ware waiting for a table and... More

In my opinion one of the best eateries in Folkestone, excellent small but varied all made on premises,service was excellent and very friendly even when the restaurant was full. Went there on Boxing day and they fitted us in immediately, luckily we got there early and by the time we were seated and served they were turning people away as... More

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
