“Poor, very poor”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Goodies has really gone down hill. I recently visited and experienced:

1. Rude staff (The 'Boss'?)
2. Small portions
3. Expensive
4. Batter soggy
5. Cod that didn't taste like cod!

“goodies and gluten free”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

My Husband has recently been diagnosed with coeliac disease, we were delighted when someone mentioned Goodies had a Gluten free Wednesday. Now what .does every portion of chips need? salt and vinegar of course, not according to the girl behind the counter, when asked for vinegar, she pointed to the bottle on the counter, which of course being Malt vinegar contains Gluten, which then made my Husband decide that he was not going to eat the chips he had paid for, because if they don't know that then what else have got wrong, cross contamination maybe etc, Gluten can make him seriously ill, so poor show Goodies, don't advertise Gluten free if you cant sort out a basic condiment FYI white wine vinegar would of been fine!

“Usually great service - disappointed - Food still good though”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

We use this take away quite a bit and do orders from the office at lunchtime. The food is very good but we were left less than satisfied on this particular occassion. We have the 10% loyalty card with the meal stamps which we had on the counter when ordering. The lady wasn't interested. She only gave 4 stamps (usually they're very generous with our orders) and then when we checked the receipt she didn't give the 10% discount so had to question that (to which we got blamed for not showing the card despite her already stamping the card and it being on show the entire time) Then when we returned to the office dicovered a whole meal was paid for on receipt but not received. We shared around the office everybody meals instead of chasing it up for convenience. All round a bit of a failure and not the usual service. We'll still be using it though but we'll be be extra vigilant next time that the person has their head screwed on and we'll count all the meals before leaving to make sure none are forgotten.

“Tasty”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Very tasty fish and chips. However my ' large' cod was very small, much smaller than my friends and certainly not worthy of being charged as large. Bit costly - £12 for cod and chips twice.
