You either love wetherspoon pubs or hate them

Its a typical wetherspoon pub. If you are a real ale drinker then you are in heaven but if not then you will still pay far less for your drink here than most pubs. Yes its Barking and its a run down town, however I found the people in there were very friendly and the staff also came over as... read more

Visited this J.D. Wetherspoon pub last month, in need of a drink before taking a train from Barking Station next door. I entered the pub, having negotiated my way around a group of people crowding the entrance. The interior was rather busy with families. There was the usual good selection of cask ale available that I expect at a Wetherspoons... More

Used as convenient to hotel and station. Not all Wetherspoons in London have Fish Friday on offer. Very busy and noisy pub on the evening, fish looked good but was slightly undercooked. Service excellent. Breakfast next morning OK, quick service and usual good quality for this chain

Visited Friday and Saturday this weekend for food. The toilets are on the small side and the whole place is very busy on a Friday night. Despite this the food is good and the drinks prices are excellent for being in the London area.

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.
