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!

I would have definitely appreciate a different menu choice, something different. The menu was the same as last time we were eating back in July. Please can we have different choices.
As a regular with us you know we don't change our main menu. People come regularly to enjoy our dishes and don't like to see them disappear of the menu. You will also know we have daily changing specials available, to give regulars more choice. We feel our prices are very fair, and with costs rising daily, they will increase also.
Enjoyed our meal was beautiful
Excellent ambiance and great value, but some of the serving staff seemed inexperienced and not comfortable
Pleasant meal on a Saturday evening with friends. Food tasty and good service.
Gorgeous food and excellent service. I’ll definitely be back
Excellent food and good service.
Nice atmosphere in pleasant surroundings.
Always love the crafty hound. Amazing food, lovely staff
Friendly relaxed atmosphere.....great food ....entertainment after in bar was great
Staff very friendly and the food was delicious. Very cosy.
Lovely night at the crafty hound - service was super
This place is a hidden gem, we often overlook our local eateries for the bright lights of Belfast or the perceived sophistication of Hillsborough, but all too often you end up with a mediocre meal that cost a small fortune.
Not so with the ‘Crafty Hound’ , the meal i had last night was heaven on a plate, a feather blade of beef that just melted in my mouth, with a deep, rich, meaty jus, it was so tasty I’d swap a kidney for the recipe
Try it, you may just be surprised!
The food took over an hour for just goujons and a burger but it was lovely when it decided to arrive
Chefs Special Topside of beef was too die for as was the orange creme brulee
Our first visit to the crafty hound did not disappoint. Cocktails were unreal, the service was fantastic. We had the steak deal the steaks were cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back
Seated under a speaker and was extremely difficult to hear my wife. Service was good and food was OK. Wouldn't rush back though
Great food, great service and wonderful cocktails, had a really lovely evening.
Had lovely meal at crafty hound last night staff where just the best very friendly efficient food was plentiful an good
Although service was a little slow considering it wasn’t very busy, when the food arrived it was excellent and very good value for money. Staff were pleasant also.
We had a really good time here. The team were lovely and very helpful - and made great cocktails. We really liked the food and thought the menu was great. Would definitely go back.
Staff friendly and food lovely! Will definitely be back soon!
Great local eatery and reasonably priced for food.
Could do with updating the Menu.
Disappointed my meal of chicken goujons was served in a wee bowl more like a starter. Portion sizes are very small. Definitely not good value for money. Would think twice about booking again
Lovely place food fantastic sevice couldn't be better
Very slow service. Thankfully once order taken, food arrived quickly.
Good food, slow service and a fair price for what you get.
Great service and food amazing would highly recommend
Lovely food and great service seating area bright will be back again
We had Sunday Roast with all the trimmings. Roast was cooked to perfection and the gravy was very tasty too. Thanks
Food was delicious, service was friendly and really reasonably priced
Lovely food and friendly staff.
Delighted with our visit. We were a big booking with plenty of kids but we’re made to feel welcome and service was great!
Fabulous food relaxing atmosphere with be back. The price is reasonable as well.
The food was great, couldn’t fault it. The service was a bit poor though. It wouldn’t put me off returning, but definitely needs to be improved. The live music in the bar was super too! We had a lovely evening all round
Food and cocktails are fab in a lovely atmosphere.
We had a family meal on Sunday 26th to celebrate a milestone birthday. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant we felt very welcome and shown to our table. The table service was 10/10 and your staff were all very attentive.
The food itself was outstanding and we all had great day.
Would highly recommend
The 8 staff standing together at the entrance could not find my booking then took 20 minute to wipe a table for us to sit at. The table I was given was beside the door to the bar which was extremely noise and when I asked to be moved I was told no. Considering there were very few other diners I thought this was rude. Very bad atmosphere and despite having plenty of staff not one was able to welcome us or make us feel at ease. I asked for a high chair and didn't get one then got my menu but no kids menus. By the time anyone even came to take our drinks order I decided it was time for us to leave. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant at all.
Great service and food . Staff very helpful and polite . Would definitely recommend it.
We were made welcome at lunch time.
The service was very good indeed, the music which was quite loud was turned down at our request.
The food was very fresh and well presented and we enjoyed our meal.
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.
Been here quite a few times even before it changed names. Always had great food never been disappointed.
