Service was great throughout. We took ages to decide what to have because, even though it was a limited xmas menu, everything sounded good! We all had three courses (for under £18 each) and there were no complaints whatsoever. Sprout lovers might disagree on this, as there weren't any! Some of us had been here before, but stopped going because... More

I booked, having reviewed many possibilities on Tripadvisor in the Portsmouth/Southampton area, a birthday meal for my wife and 40 others, never having been to the Dog & Crook before - I live in Cheshire. We travelled from all over the country and were not disappointed - great choice of food, well prepared and with great service. Manager Paul was... More

We met up with friends for a pre Christmas meal. The pub was recommended by a friend and we would like to endorse that recommendation. The food was as good as any top quality restaurant and there was also an excellent selection of drinks. Despite it being one of their busiest nights we had to wait only a very short... More

Visited after many years break and was not dissapointed. The welcome was genuine and friendly and the food superb. The staff seem to really care, not just trotting out the old 'are your meals OK ' because they have been instructed to say it. As others have said, the steak and ale pie is excellent, but all the meals looked... More

Ten of us visited the Dog and Crook to celebrate my mothers birthday and everyone enjoyed their food. I had the steak and ale pie and thoroughly enjoyed it, I would say it was the best I have tasted. The service was friendly and good, we will be going back again.

It used to be a smaller quiet Country Pub but tends to be catering for larger groups of people and it seems to have lost his old character of a country pub/restaurant. Sad!!

gubblecotes1, Owner at Dog and Crook, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. The pub has been the same since 2000 when it was extended and altered. The large party's we are delighted to welcome as well as much smaller groups are a result of our popularity serving good, freshly prepared and cooked food with excellent service. We hope you will choose to visit us again. More
