Not really the kind of bar one would want to visit unless they were stuck around Barking station. Food and drinks are at the reasonable Wetherspoon prices with food quality being average. Staff are not particularly friendly and there tends to be some sort of a drunken brawl every other week. Overall I would say it has a very forgettable... More

The Barking Dog is a mess of a pub, I had a quick pint in there for old times sake, the other day. We used to occasionally visit on curry nights etc, but nowadays it's a load of oiks looking for a cheap way to get off there heads.
