TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR HEATED AND COVERED TERRACE FOR GROUPS FROM MULTIPLE HOUSEHOLDS

Barbeque grew up in the South of the USA where cooks learned to slow roast cuts of meat over fire pits to make them tender. Exposure to the smoke of the smouldering wood added a distinctive smoky taste to the meat. The process could take many hours, leaving the meat tender and juicy.

Our award-winning smokers have been imported from the USA and are built to recreate the cooking process of those original fire pits. We smoke for up to 16 hours using the traditional American woods of hickory and mesquite to give a full smoke flavour.

The staff were absolutely brilliant. Dining outdoors so food got cold pretty quickly, but it was utterly delicious and we had a marvellous time. Would definitely recommend and will be back!

I would not recommend this place for food or drinks.
Firstly, the tables were disgustingly sticky.
Secondly, the music was on repeat and very loud.
Thirdly, there was 1 unisex toilet.
Forthly, the food was oily, the cockails were nasty and not value for money.

Very unassuming place but don't let that fool you. Some of the best BBQ food I've had anywhere. Good portion sizes and a real great sweet smokey flavour on the meat. Some real love and time has gone into the food here.

We were very pleased with Red Dog. The food was amazing, tasty and cooked very well. It is a rare treat to find good BBQ food in the UK and Red Dog is such a find. The service was good and the atmosphere of the restaurant was ideal. We will definitely go back.

The service was great, the girls were really friendly & helpful & just a pleasure to be served by. Great cocktails, music & ambience. Unfortunately the food just wasn’t that good. The ribs were good but not great. The rest seemed a bit undercooked & the sauces tasted of vinegar.
A shame as we had looked forward to this meal. We would return for the cocktails as they were great & the staff were fantastic.

The tables were sticky, food came was overall unimpressed. The burgers were awful, brisket was dry and several other recommended items on the menu by our waiter came and were bland and were not eatable. I took a bite of each item and had kindly asked the waiter to send all of our food back and kindly asked for the bill. Above the food being below average the noise level was unbearable. We could not hear our selves think let alone talk with one an other. The toilet was dirty and both male and female had to share the same restroom.
I am deeply disappointed with this visit and would strongly recommend nobody to waste your time and money on a place like this.

Ruined by a group larger than six people with their drunken behaviour, loudness, lack of effort to adhere to social distancing, and sitting or any empty table inside/outside. Might have been a nicer experience otherwise . Staff were pleasant, efficient and very helpful.

Would probably avoid this restaurant. Went here with a few mates a couple of days ago as we wanted a proper feast. Limited menu wasn't great and we were looking forward to the brisket but it wasn't available. Lack of options was disappointing. There were about 5 burgers to choose from and a pretty basic drinks menu (5 beers, with our top choices also unavailable).

The food came in a decent time. The wings (hickory smoked) tasted not dissimilar to the microwave ones you get in Tesco, and were small. No meal seemed to include sides, so you need to order separately. We got the pricey "loaded fries" which were quite bland.

The servers were unattentive and not welcoming. Felt like a bit of a chore. We also booked quite far in advance but got sat by the toilet door (as in, we were half inside the corridor where the loo is). There's only one toilet in the whole place so there were people queuing next to us a few times.

The burger I had was OK. It was a spicy burger which was indeed very spicy, and if it was £5 cheaper would consider getting it again (on takeaway). All in all, wouldn't recommend.

Went out for a birthday, just the two of us. Firstly we were placed in the middle of the restaurant but asked to move which the staff were more than happy to do. Amazing food! And great service!

My favourite BBQ spot anywhere in the UK, so authentic. The carnivore platter is amazing, and we loved it. Fresh, hearty, proper American grub.

Menu changed a little since we were last there; my partner wanted the Mac and cheese but she can’t eat peppers and the staff wouldn’t make it without jalapeños, also a couple other menu items listed on this open table app aren’t available either so a couple things we fancied weren’t available on the day, was a little disappointing. Also we were the only people there so it was a strange vibe sitting in an empty place but I guess that can’t be helped, strange on a Friday afternoon though.

Regardless, the food was excellent, staff very very helpful and even though it’s a little expensive, it always feels so worth it, happy to pay the money. Will certainly be back ASAP.
