“Stuck in a timewarp....... dreadful, wont be going again... ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

Oh my goodness me... this sad establishment, has deffo seen better days! Décor drab, dreary, and old fashioned. Toilets, 70's style, in need of total refit. Food, confused, dated and poor quality. We had nachos. They were a plate of mush and cheese. Two pizza's, looked nice, but tasted like cardboard smothered in cheap cheese and meat. Red housewine, cheap and tasteless.

Saturday night, and the place was all but empty... (that should have been a warning sign!)

Sorry but it is completely awful, TIMEWARPED !!!

“Still going strong.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013 via mobile

Coggy's and Mr Dobbs were a right of passage for most kids growing up in the Halifax area from the mid 80s. Although Dobbies is long gone, it is good that Coggy's is still going strong.

The food is simple but consistently good and the service has always been good as well, with some of the waiting staff having been there for a long time.

You cannot fault the food at all so if you want a pizza or burger you can't beat it. The only downside is that it could do with a bit of a makeover as the decor is looking dated and the seats are a bit uncomfortable.

Until recently there has been little competition in Halifax, especially from the big chains. Unfortunately with the cinema opening there is now a large number of restraunts within a two minute walk, all selling pizza, pasta and burgers. Hopefully Coggy's will hold its own as it provides good food at a good price.

“Shocking”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

So excited to go to this restaurant really looking forward to it. My boyfriend booked our table for 9 on Thursday the 15th of November, for a start the person he spoke to over the phone to book the table didn't even take our names. So we spent time getting ready, Only to turn up and the restaurant completely empty no lights on, it was shut! I can't begin to describe how mad and upset I was, they have a great menu I wouldn't be able to find something else like that in halifax! It's just a good job it wasn't a birthday or something!
