Really I was there in June 2014 with a few friends while we visit the west Somerset railway. Dishes very tasty and beers are the best of the place. I will come back

Noisy and crowded with sports fans watching Sport TV on huge screen. Were going to eat but could not take our order as busy with a large party. We left and ate elsewhere.

Found the Hairy Dog by chance as the local Inn we were staying at close by proved short of tables. A large, spacious bar serving plentiful meals at a reasonable price. Offers a good alternative to the usual chain pubs

I experienced a n unfortunate incident and went into theHairy Dog to report it. They were so kind and were able to call up the police as the pubs are linked to a special network. The staff were very reassuring and the tea was of course the best Miles Tea, not just a cuppa but served nicely on a tray... More

Staying at Butlins for Music Weekend, so ventured into Minehead during the day. Did a little pub crawl and popped into The Hairy Dog, it's huge inside, and very nice, huge screens for the football or sport, but also lots of booths and a huge garden. Only stayed for a drink, but if in Minehead again would definitely come here... More
