Situated in the historical area of Lambeg, this once hotbed of industrial craft, was also well known in years gone by for its greyhound racing, with the first dog track behind our premises here, and afterwards at Ballyskeagh!

Food was absolutely lovely however the waitress seemed totally disinterested and gave no attention to the diners at all. One of our party ate their Chowder with a fork as she ignored several attempts to call her to ask for a spoon. Hoping she was perhaps a new start and maybe just hadn't learnt the ropes yet.
Excellent meal, great drinks, lovely staff. Our first visit and we will certainly be back.
Found it a little chilly inside when we arrived, but it did seem to heat up while we were there.
Great food and nice atmosphere, lots of room and the Guinness is great too
Very good service and special recognition to micah for being able to get us seats inside during a cold night
Kitchen backed up. 20 mins before someone even came over to us . Never be here again. Last time they had the exact same excuse. Got up and left. They still had the audacity to charge for two drinks.
As usual service and food was excellent and we will keep going back.
Fantastic meal and great service, couldn’t recommend highly enough
Easy parking, lovely tasty lunch and friendly staff. I will. be back! Thanks.
Food was exceptional,
Staff friendly and accommodating,
Food reasonably priced,
Will definitely be returning
Great Sunday lunch - huge portion and really delicious. Very busy restaurant with lots of families and therefore lots of noisy children, so maybe not the spot for a peaceful lunch.
Outstanding food, my favourite spot for Sunday dins to date 👍👍
Booked in for Sunday lunch, great food, lovely staff and relaxing atmosphere so what more would you want? 5*
Amazing service and food. Great quality. Friendly staff.
Friendly service and the steaks were to die for! Very generous portions too.
Excellent choice of food, great cocktails, and very COVID safe 😊
Fabulous food and great service. We arrived earlier than anticipated and were seated without a problem. Staff were very pleasant and the Lemon Meringue dessert was superb!
On arrival staff were not friendly- didn't even say hello.
We had a child with allergies- staff were completely unhelpful... the response was we will take care but can't guarantee .. we eat out regularly without any issue... this is the first place that has not been able to accommodate or even try to. We had to get up and leave with a very upset little girl who couldn't understand why they were so unhelpful. Won't ever be back to this place and won't be recommending it either.
Great food. Great service. Lovely, clean, bright, friendly atmosphere.
Fantastic food, great beer friendly staff.
Will definitely be back!

Would definitely recommend.
Had lunch with friends from London an we had a lovely meal served by very friendly staff
Sunday Dinner at the Crafty Hound this time, with all the family. Lovely to see the place busy and the staff were exceptionally attentive. The food was SO GOOD, definitely have the roast beef if you’re visiting on a Sunday!
The waiting staff were helpful - taking orders for food and drinks were fine. The finessing of having drinks for the party of 4 arriving together at the same time did not happen but not a major issue. The food arrival was all over the place- different staff doing different bits was not organised. The staff did seem keen to please - they just need direction.
Still -none of this spoiled the occasion.
Fantastic meal even when 1/3 of my main course mussels didn’t open it was rectified immediately and with no hassle with an extra starter portion.
Great food and great service.
Great outdoor seating.
Food and service was great. Would definitely recommend.
Great food but some meals on menu not available hence the 4 star rating. We were there late so maybe that is understandable. Food ordered was fab and great value though. Staff are lovely and very attentive.
Everything was till perfection service food absolutely beautiful. Only thing I thought the portions were small
Very friendly staff and affordable food that was well portioned
The staff at crafty hound are a great bunch. Very polite from the moment you walk in the door until you are leaving. We got the option to sit outside but wanted to sit inside because it was cooler, the host recommended outside seating in a shaded area and it was lovely. Also the food was gorgeous, those chunky chips are to die for ❤️
The food and drinks were outstanding but we were left waiting for service for a prolonged time and were not informed about the drinks promo’s
A lovely visit as always, great food, drinks and service!
