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.

Barking and good times isn't words i'd normally put together but this pub really is a diamond in the rough. The bar staff are friendly enough to offer good service but also trained enough to offer a good experience. Can't fault the place for value and them experienced staff are hands on in offering the best beer in town, credit... More

I visited this pub with a few friends on a Tuesday evening. Having been to many whetherspoon pubs, I have to say that this had to be the friendliest whetherspoons so far. There was a decent number of staff working which is very unusual for this chain of pubs and we didn't have to wait ages to be served. The... More

My office decided to come here for christmas dinner. On entry, the smell of stale smoke from years gone by still lingers. The clientele were typical for a local Weatherspoons during the daytime. I refused to try their christmas dinner and went for the sirloin steak. It was not nice at all, dry and tasteless and the chips were horrible.... More

A decent Wetherspoons pub next door to Barking station. Roomy, with plenty of seating and offering a good range of standard chain pub food. Often has some decent ales on tap as well. Definitely a cut above your average grotty Barking establishment. Probably best avoided on a West Ham match day, more from the point of being packed rather than... More
