Red Dog is an authentic Bar and American BAR-B-Q restaurant, serving 18-hour roast ribs, brisket, aged chuck steak burgers and much more, all best enjoyed with tasty cocktails or milkshakes.


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 and juicy taste to the meat. Our award-winning smokers have been imported from the USA and are 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 18 hours.

    The food was delicious, the meat on the beet ribs fell apart, the platters are the better value, lemon pie was like a creamy cheese cake. Will be going again in the near future. To try out alot more.

    Very ill in the night after eating, new menu change has not helped. Whole group felt the same. Disappointing as we usually enjoy this place but not when it makes you violently sick.

    Good food, wait staff were very good & attentive but it took a long time for our first drinks to arrive and food was very slow (around 40 mins). We were informed by our waitress that it was because we got stuck behind some large parties, which I understand, but somewhat spoiled our time as we had somewhere to be so had to rush our meals. I'd have hoped for slightly better as it is not a budget restaurant.

    We came to red dog saloon for a birthday meal. Whilst the burgers were excellent, at £20 for double burgers, charging £5.50 extra for chips is slightly disappointing especially as they were warm and a bit soggy. The waiting staff were excellent and really looked after us.

    Went for an afternoon lunch and ordered a platter for two. Sent back the mac and cheese to be heated as it wasn’t warm when it arrived. The first half of the burger and BBQ sandwich we had each was pleasant but the rest of the food was cold, the pork shoulder was inedible and the chicken tenders tasted like they had been sprayed with antibacterial spray! Really didn’t enjoy it for the £90 we spent on our bill. Took some food home with us for our dog as at the price we paid was very disheartened to leave any!! Told the server and he said he would pass it onto the kitchen as shouldn’t be cold. Wasn’t his fault but maybe don’t do lunchtime platters as it felt like we had the nights before food badly warmed up. Really disappointed as we have been before and had different food which we enjoyed.

    We had high expectations from Red Dog as had heard good thing but I don’t think I would return. Once we arrived the host was on the phone arguing with someone, but was looking at us and arguing. Which wasn’t the best way to enter the restaurant. He did later come up and apologise he was shouting at someone on the phone. The service was very slow, the food was mediocre, we ordered the mixed meat platter which was just ok, but certainly not worth £32. The Mac and cheese was neon orange and only had a few bits of pasta in. The scallops were the size of a pea and cold. Mash potato looked out of a packet. Cocktails were good, thankfully! I had to ask the waitress to clear our plates as they were sat on our table for ages after we had finished. Unfortunately we will not be returning. I think for the price Hickory’s is by far superior.

    Was really looking forward to the visit. The food was beyond poor. It was extremely greasy and fatty on the meat despite purchasing one of the chef platters. Very disappointing and won’t be returning again. Staff were friendly enough and always asking if can help.

    Great food, but doesn't overcome poor service, unjustifiably high prices, and automatic addition of a 10% service charge when you have to go to the bar to order more drinks yourself. Came to watch the F1 but the table we had reserved was taken by walk-ins so had to sit elsewhere without the best view of a screen. Staff happy to stand and chat whilst stood in front of 4 people sat trying to watch a race. Overall a really disappointing visit. Maybe it would make more sense to reserve the small rear section for people that book to come and watch sports? Maybe then offer the sports with audio in this section. Or don't offer it at all if it can't be accommodated properly.

    Very disappointed. Visit regularly before football, and usually order a small portion of meat e.g. 1/4 lb pork shoulder, and loaded fries, which with the trimmings worked great together as a meal. Menu updated, neither are available anymore. Instead ended up with entire blade of beef (too big, no ‘trimmings’), and regular/ plain fries. Ended up sending both back and asking for them to be removed from the bill. Not planning to visit anymore unless the menu is changed back.

    Very very very, disappointed. I’d booked for my partner and I and clearly stated on the booking that my partner has a peanut allergy. This wasn’t picked up until we’d sat down at the restaurant. The lady came back after sitting us to ask if we had any allergies which isn’t a problem so we confirmed my partner has a peanut allergy. The lady left and returned with a menu guide of all the items with potentially peanuts in them. This was literally the entire menu so we couldn’t have anything. At this point she had taken a drinks order and instead pf cancelling it, i had to pay for the drink prior to us leaving. spent £7 on a coke and pineapple juice. What made it worse was that they did not have any pork or beef ribs available, no steak just burgers on the menu! We had travelled to have the rib platter because thats what they do! We both left extremely annoyed and frustrated. We didnt even drink the silly drinks because we wanted food with the drinks. There was no sort of concern or offer to say look dont pay for the drinks if you cant eat we apologise nothing. Definitely never going back.

    The food was good, well the meat tasty but could have been hotter when it arrived at the table. The really poor point was the fried food (e.g Onion rings) the oil either too hot or needed changing. It's very expensive for what you get. There is a 10% service charge included. Generally, for good service, except when a charge is imposed.

    Tables are way too close together to the point the people next to us were basically at the same table. We were right next to the bar so the noise was horrendous and it felt like me and my partner had no privacy whatsoever. Also the pricing on the menu is completely false advertisement. If you cannot order the platter for 1 person at £32 then why don't you just put the price at £65? Would not reccomend this place

    Booked a table for 7:30. Had to wait 30 minutes before we could sit down hostess didn't really care that we had a half hour wait. They had run out of glasses, washed a glass in front of us and served cold wine in a warm glass. The waitress who served our table was really nice and helpful, the only good thing about our visit. Food was really tasty however well over priced. £38 for a bottle of pinot grigio, would be fine if it was a special bottle but you can buy the same one from a super market. Portion sizes were small given the price, most of left wanting more food. Not going again

    We arrived at around 18:05 when the booking was 18:15. We were told our table wasn't ready yet which was completely fair and we had drinks. At 18:15 however I went back out to ask if the table was ready and it wasn't which was pretty disappointing and we were told to wait so we just stood around the bar area. Then we were told we could sit down at the table behind which was okay but the tables in the restaurant area which we actually booked were so much nicer and quieter so we could all talk as there were 8 of us. The staff didn't kick the people who were overstaying into our allocated time yet at the end of our meal we were told we had to move as there was a table booking. We didn't feel like we were treated fairly despite the food literally being amazing and our waitress too but it was really a shame as it was just really loud in bar.

    Unfortunately, when we visited a lot of items on the menu that I was looking forward to trying were not available, ( the pork ribs, brisket, beef ribs) but the food that we did have was great! I ended up having the pork shoulder which was nice and the 1/4 pound portion size was manageable for me, someone with quite a small appetite. The staff were very friendly, energetic and helpful with any queries that we had regarding the menu. I enjoyed the American authentic of the place with artwork and posters on the walls and as lover of country music they play some bangers. I’d definitely go back again, I still need to try every thing that was out of stock

    Went to Red Dog as a treat for my son’s 16th birthday. Was looking forward to the food as we had been following on insta & everything looked amazing. Food was great. Part my fault but fries had to be ordered separately which I didn’t realise & so got them when our burgers were gone. Orders for my daughter & whilst her good was coli g we popped to the loo & whilst we were there her plate had been cleared away before she had managed to eat it. Didn’t offer to replace her food or knock off the bill. Test if food was great but very over priced. Should’ve gone for the platters in hind sight. No atmosphere in there at all, we went in a Friday evening.

    Food was great, nachos were awesome, burger was delicious and juicy. Service from Courtney was very good. Didn't have room for dessert, but ordered another drink. Rob came over and told us we'd have to vacate the table as the next booking had arrived early. He put our bill down and said cash or card before we'd had a chance to look at it. Questioned if he would be moving us on if we'd ordered dessert and were told hed have crossed that bridge!? Rob was very rude and showed no customer service skills. He ruined an otherwise great meal

    We attended on a busy Saturday night, had a platter for two (US Kentucky). Plenty of delicious food included for the price, couldn’t eat it all, so we brought the rest back with us. Food came out quickly, but they did come out before the drinks… the staff were quick to get the drinks once we told them we hadn’t had them yet. There is a 10% service charge, which isn’t brought to your attention until you receive your bill. £8 to bring one plate out and forget the drinks for 25 minutes? Toilets are far if you have struggle with stairs. Overall, the food was delicious and good value for money. Would recommend

    Food was nice. However the server, Lilly turned extremely rude when we asked her to remove the automatically added discretionary 10% tip from the bill. That btw is unfair to automatically put on and some people will feel obliged to pay it. We’re in a cost of living crisis so be grateful people have come in the first place and to them add 10% is a bit cheeky. When we asked Lilly to remove the tip she didn’t speak another word to us, she walked over to the till got the new bill, took payment then went back to the bar screwed up the receipt and binned it, I then saw her say something to another waitress who then looked over at me and my brother. I said that you and bye as I left and she ignored me. Extremely rude to go off like that because we didn’t tip. No one tips me for my job and I would never dream of acting that way to one of my clients.
