Good pub, good food, nice people

Good Pub food, friendly service, great for lunch. This was our first visit to Barking Dog. The more we go to Amesbury the more we enjoy it. It was a nice surprise to find this place as we walked around town looking for lunch.

We spent a fantastic evening at the Barking Dog Restaurant. The atmosphere was very cozy. The restaurant is very clean. The service was excellent and the food was absolutely amazing! Adults and children enjoyed it! They had many offers for gluten free. I highly recommend it to everybody!

Food was delish, service was friebdly and prompt. And they accommodate strollers and kids. Their cinnabon ice cream dessert is everything.

Surprising menu for a local pub - food is good - atmosphere is dated but comforting - definitely feels like a local's place - I've taken many friends and family there and they've always enjoyed it. Staff is always friendly - as they Motto says:

I've never had bad service, food or drinks here. They have by far the best drink menu and drinks around. The food is amazing too! Great spot and I'm never disappointed.

A great place for a casual meal. The burgers are good and everything is reasonably priced. They could use an updating because the furniture is a bit dated.

I've been here about 5 times in the last couple months. I always sit at the bar. Have had three meals, and quite a few beverages. Food was good, and hot. Fast service. Staff is friendly, and helpful, one of the bartenders is a very funny guy.

We went to the Barking Dog for a late dinner and were surprized how good the food was despite the description that it was just "bar food" it is certainly a cut above "bar food". we have the fish/chips and they were as good as any I've ever had. service was quick and friendly and the app's and drinks were...

Always happy with the food and drinks. Good menu variety - the haddock dishes are always good. The desserts are yummy - worth saving room for if you can. I like the drink specials and the sangria flight is always a good choice.
