American
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 smoker has been imported from the USA and is built to recreate the cooking process of those original fire pits. We use the traditional American woods of hickory and mesquite to give a full smoke flavour, and the meat stays in the smoker for up to 16 hours.

Very poor service. Got given the beef ribs instead of pork which was £10 more and they blamed it on me because I ate the ribs. All the milkshakes were £5.50 but came on our bill as £6.50 and £6.75. We told the manager this and he said it was because they had an old menu. We said that was very wrong because they may have been overcharging people all day. He did not seem to care and walked away so us probably still overcharging people wrong prices to the current menu.

Waited over 30 minutes past our reservation for the table, food was very salty and had to send food back. Quite disappointed.

No social distancing measures in place which was concerning. Music was too loud to think, let alone have a conversation. This made us want to eat and leave ASAP. Food was adequate, but overpriced. The meat was cooked well but the side dishes were lacklustre and flavourless.

Been coming here for all birthday celebrations for a number of years. Will not go again. Service was very poor, waited over an hour for food. Quality of food has decreased. Very disappointed. Guerilla fries are a joke, simply fries with a mayo and tomato relish dripping in vinegar... certainly not worth the price!!

Food was lovely and really good portions. Staffs were extremely nice, but had I had a feeling they were understaffed and I had to wait a long time until I could pay my bill.

We arrived and it took 25 mins to order but the waiter who seated us (actually the manager) had forgot to say some items were no longer available, so we quickly rechecked the menus it then took another 15 minutes to re order and then a 50 minute wait for food after that. The waitress and manager gave us no update to where the food was until we asked around the 45 minute mark. The food is good but it’s not worth the terrible service. I understand it’s a post covid experience and other processes now have to take place and maybe there is less staff. But I visited a year ago and it was exactly the same so I don’t think you can blame covid. The food is the only thing holding this place together. Maybe a victim of its own success but the service is a shambles to say the least.

It was absolutely great. My partner and I felt awful we couldn’t leave a service charge but that was due to the customers rather than the service. Lovely staff and food though!

Food wasn’t worth what we paid. Had the whole menu available but didn’t have a lot of the food left to order considering it was only 4pm on a Sunday they had no ribs etc. Won’t be returning again. Such a shame as used to be one of our favourite restaurants

The food was enjoyable and the decor was cool. But it was very noisy, this may be an acoustics issue rather than music alone, but I came home with a sore throat from shouting at my partner who was only across the table. Although I liked the build your own platter system, value for money is also not great. £5+ for 100gr of sausage is not good when you realize that at that weight it's is basically just one regular sized sausage sliced up.

They put us downstairs with the kitchen door wide open so between the the kitchen staff laughing as yelling and the trying-too-hard music we could barely hear each other. We were the only ones seated downstairs which was weird because there were seats upstairs and since we made a booking you’d think we would have been able to sit where it was nicer.

Also two drinks come out to £16/£17 how I’m not 100% I’m guessing furlough was tough on the server. We ended up ordering food from BIRD (amazing) at the table and leaving to enjoy it in the park.

It’s annoying to be over charged but that’s the last £16 I’ll ever spend there.

We Live close by and use red dog saloon quite regularly. However, this visit was a complete let down. All the food was overcooked and dry as the coleslaw seemed to be Tesco economy!
I’m under no illusion that the food is cooked fresh, it’s slow cooked barbecue food I fully expect it’s to be reheated but this was dreadful. Our normal barbecue visits are to Bodeans at either city Road or Tower Hill, on this occasion both were closed. We have always kept Red Dog for special occasions as it is that much more expensive. We won’t be going back until we get decent reports from friends who also use it.
It doesn’t help that both I and my wife are fairly competent cooks and so have been eating amazing food for the past three months.

It was my first time coming to red dog and i really enjoyed it. I appreciate the recommendation the waiting made as the brisket did not dissapoint at all. Although the food was excellent and the service was exceptional the only thing that i suggest is that they dont make the chicken burger as salty as it was that day. Other than that five star.

We come here quite a lot, usually the food is amazing and the whole experience also, this time though the food was ridiculously bad, the burgers were drenched completely in butter and the loaded fries were oily and undercooked. We could only manage to eat a little bit of each of our meals, we would have complained at the time but unfortunately we had other plans we had to rush to make, very disappointed won’t be coming back just yet.

We were a group of 4 visiting for a Friday lunch. The food was good but not worth writing home about. The staff and service was very warm and hospitable. They do try to give you a Texan BBQ experience all round.

I enjoyed the food and it’s reasonably priced and very delicious. However Staff could of been a little bit more attentive. We were kept waiting quite a while for someone to take our order and had to get up a few times to reorder food, drinks... Not the best.
