We really enjoyed our trip to The Barking Dog. The food was interesting and well cooked and presented. It arrived quickly and the service was friendly and helpful. I did not receive the main course I ordered as the waiter misheard me in the busy restaurant, but as I did not want to wait for the main I had ordered,... More

We had a fantastic night with friends here recently. The lighting and decor create a great ambiance. Great menu, food was really tasty and well presented by pleasant staff. Very busy when we were there with great buzz.

I've been to the Barking Dog at least 4 times so far in 2014 and it is consistently very good - I particularly like the salt and pepper scampi starter (don't take it off the menu now...), the Spiced Butternut Squash Arancini with Aioli tapas and the steak main course are always excellent. I've friends who consistently have the Beef... More

We can really recommend this Restaurant. We ate here on Sunday night. The place was very busy and, even though we didn't have a reservation, we were given a table after a few minutes wait. My husband had Cod and it was beautifully presented and he was well pleased. I had the Fish Pie and it was delicious. The staff... More

Recommended by a friend, had never been before. Treated like long-lost friends, the friendly waiter made us feel at ease right away. What we hadn't known is that we were in for a treat as we had the very talented Gavin to entertain us, (excellent guitarist), & since this is a restaurant, you'll want to know about the food? Delicious!... More

Very pleasantly surprised by a night out here with 4 friends, We shared Tapas as a starter and nothing was left on anyone's plate. The main courses were all delicious also and of decent sized portions. The sweet potato fries were yummy. Staff were all very friendly and efficient. Will definitely return soon.

We ate here on Saturday night. The young man who showed us to our table was very pleasant. We were seated just to the left of the door to a small table for two. It has nice lighting BUT you can't read the menu as its too dark. We had to try and edge our menu close to the candle... More

If you are looking for a great meal and cool atmosphere, go here. My boyfriend, friend, and I had a great time here on a Friday night. The atmosphere was very lively, service was fast and friendly, and the meals were all wonderful. Tip: the sweet potato fries were amazing!
