A wonderful meal to celebrate a special birthday. Six of us visited The Barking Dog and had a wonderful evening. Food was delicious and staff were attentive and extremely helpful.

We went here on Saturday and have booked our second visit straight away. The food was amazing, I couldn’t pick what to eat as everything sounded so good but I decided to go for the steak and I wasn’t disappointed. Cooked to perfection and I...More

The tapas and chicken were good. We had the burger and found it to be too big and reminiscent of meatloaf. The fries however were excellent. The featured dessert-the caramel tart and peanut butter ice cream -was good. Local beers and cider hit the spot.

In my opinion, for the quality and type of food you get, it's much cheaper than places with similar menus

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