I found staff to be rude and that layout of our table such that every time a staff member walked by me I either got my chair knocked into or elbowed in the back of the head. I ordered steak which came with no sauce,...More

I have been to Barking Dog many times before and have enjoyed it. Today I visited for lunch with my Mum (a pre-Xmas tradition of going somewhere nice for lunch). We both ordered Christmas dinner at £18 each. 3 smallish roast spuds were nicest part...More

Okay....the food is good here but not so exceptional that I would go back. The restaurant is also not cheap. The issue letting down this restaurant is the unfriendly rude staff, big hint - when your first customer turns up at 12.20pm for lunch to...More

Have visited a few times and as always it delivers. The initmate setting, friendly staff and tasty food always make it a win-win. The home brew is also up there with some of the best beers I've tasted. Always enjoy ordering the tapas.

I would probably say no. Somewhere like Springsteins Diner on the Lisburn Road might be better.
