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.

    Very expensive for what you got, burger was dry and not much flavour. Expensive for sides too and unless you go at a certain time where you get a side included it will end up getting very expensive for a meal for 2. Onion rings very greasy not impressed overall

    Food was lovely and the portions were decent. Disappointing that you don’t get chips with the burgers though for the price! They didn’t have what we wanted and there was no draught beer (although they did offer 2for1 cocktails to make up for it) Menu was also different to the one on their website. Our server was helpful and smiley but they came to take our mains order while we were still eating our starters. Would come again hopefully they have a full menu

    Drink service was very slow, and unable to serve draft beers due to the hot weather because of their set up. Food was tasty, but a little on the expensive side for what it was.

    15 of us attended, drinks & service was very slow, a couple of wrong burger orders so had to wait with chips while the correct burger was cooked which wasnt ideal. Food was very good when it finally arrived but it did take a while. Not a great experience for saying over £450 was spent.

    Wings very poor. Overcooked but cold and very greasy. The burger patty itself was good but let down by everything else particularly the chips and flavourless cheese.

    Slow service, dealt with 3 people before ordering drinks and food, waiters aren’t very informative about the menu, felt rather conned with the tip being added because we wouldn’t of left a tip for the poor service. Very poor compared to other bbq restaurants.

    The menu would have been easier to follow if there were photos of the food on offer, what is on the instagram page is not labelled clearly on the menu. Plus soft drinks like coke is available on the lunch time deal but it's not listed as a drink. The food was good though

    Been here many times before for mixed meat platters and been lovely.. had burger today and was dry and completely tasteless... honestly a McDonalds 99p burger had far more taste. £4.95 for a portion of obviously just frozen supermarket fries with no seasoning at all. So dissapointed as drove over 30 miles to take my daughter for a special occasion....

    Good food and service but too expensive. We were a table of 7 that ate at the Red Dog Saloon on Saturday 30th May. The food was good as was the service. The food arrived in good time and the staff were friendly and attentive. I had the double LTB chicken burger and for a double it was £13.25. The burger came with no sides, so I ordered mac and cheese and that cost an additional £5.50, in what was only a small ramekin. A draft pale was also £5.50. Initially our total bill was over £208 including a %10 service charge and then we also found that over £19 of Coke and apple juice was on the bill which we didn't order. The staff were apologetic and refunded the amount. We all agreed that we enjoyed the food but felt it was overpriced and the fact that the burgers came with no sides was disappointing. We didn't leave a tip as a service charge had already been added. I'm not sure we'd go back because the prices are just too high.

    Terrible service. Sold out of most bbq meats. Was not told until ordering. This has happened on a previous occasion. If we were told before we ordered we would of left and gone elsewhere but being told after ordering drinks and our food is disgusting. Then having to pay for drinks that we wouldn’t of ordered if we were told about the sold outs. Spoke to 2 different managers that couldn’t care less about customer service or satisfaction. The response was it takes 15 hours to cook the meat. That’s fine but tell your customers before they order. I think it’s disgusting that we complained twice to 2 different managers and neither one thought the right thing to do was take the drinks off of the bill. How disgusting to make people pay for something that would not of been ordered if the staff were competent in doing they’re job and giving the bare minimum of customer service. Will never go again. Will never recommend and will be posting my disgusting experience on social media

    The most expensive meal I’ve ever had to pay for. My wife and I have eaten at The Shard, The Ritz and Gordon Ramsey restaurants. This was the more expensive than all. The chicken tenders - which came with a bone in were burnt to a crisp and totally flavourless. The amount of meat we were recommended to eat was way too much. A 10% service charge was added without our permission and felt obliged to pay this. We were offered complimentary drinks as we didn’t eat any of the chicken. These drinks were then added to the bill too. Probably wouldn’t return

    Some of the food was great but some was just a soggy mess. I was not too happy about the service charge which was £20.00 in our case, that should have been down to me and based on the whole experience not just an automatic addition on the bill.
