My husband and I went to The Fat Dog this evening with a Groupon deal. We had the smoked salmon mousse and chicken Caesar salad for starters and the only (really extremely minor!) complaint we had with either was that the salad would be better served in a flat bottomed dish (it kept tipping up when trying to spear the food). Both starters were delicious. For mains, we had the pork chop and the Barnsley lamb chop. Again, both were excellent, perfectly cooked and we ate every last mouthful. I did like that we received what was stated on the menu. I've been to other places where the menu says one thing and what you receive is another thing entirely. Too full after all that to have a dessert!
We've eaten at the Fat Dog several times over the years, together and with various friends, and the food has pretty much always been great. The restaurant itself is very attractive - modern and clean with decent sized tables. I hate it when we go somewhere to eat and we're put on a table with no elbow room. The staff we encountered were very polite and the service was quick and unobtrusive. Lovely Merlot too! We were a bit disappointed that the fire wasn't lit but the staff may have been caught out by the cold snap in the weather. So, all in all, most enjoyable and we'll definitely be back.
