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 smokers have been imported from the USA and are built to recreate the cooking process of those original fire pits. We smoke for up to 16 hours using the traditional American woods of hickory and mesquite to give a full smoke flavour.

Took my groomsmen here after a suit fitting. We were late but they were very kind about it when I called. The whole experience was excellent, can’t understand how anyone could say anything negative if they had a similar experience to us. Food was excellent, service was really friendly and professional and we didn’t wait any longer than I would have expected for a group of 7 in any circumstance let alone one coming out of an incredibly difficult few months for hospitality. Great value, great food, great service, a perfect afternoon for us.

Nice place, good atmosphere once people came in. Food was tasty, and the service was spot on. Chicken wing portions are a little confusing, but we got there in the end.

Will be back for sure.

Awful experience. Toilet was disgusting staff couldn't have ignored social distancing more if they tried. Dinner took 1 hour to come out but honestly I don't think staff could care less. Save your money eat elsewhere

Worst dining experience I have ever had. I booked a table and I was still put in the midst of 10+ people. There were no social distancing in the tabling. Me and my friend had to move our selves to ensure we weren’t less than a meter close to people. We booked the table at 5:45 and got our food past 7pm. When we got our food, they forgot one of our burgers and we had to wait while our food got cold. We had to request for them to warm it up. The food was bland AND the burger was extremely salty. The cups are tables were sticky and the service was poor. I had to shout across the room for the employees to actually come to our table as they would regularly go outside for a smoke. Considering we were one of the very few people in the restaurant the service And quality of food was horrific. Do not dine here.

Dissapoonted as this was the place we chose to break our lockdown. Have been looking forward to eating their delicious bbq. Unfortunately when we arrived we were informed they are only serving burgers and wings from their menu. There was very little social distancing in place as the back of my seat was in direct contact with the table behind me. The portions also looked smaller than usual.

I booked a table via Open Table - my daughter's birthday treat!
When I arrived at the Red Dog it was closed due to a fire ?
The booking system should have notified me

It was lucky that Bodeans was just around the corner!

Understandably the Soho branch was shut due to a fire. SO we decided to get in an Uber to the Hoxton square Red dog. The Hoxton square was possibly the worst dinner out we have ever had. after telling our friends how amazing the food was and how we all travelled from brighton to be disappointed by the lazy and rude staff (including managers) and amazingly over cooked food.
the Soho branch was amazing the last time we ate there. it could not have been a more polar opposite experience from the Red Dog we know.

Was closed due to a small fire. Sure that can’t be helped. However letting us know it was closed would’ve helped.

The food was amazing. The service not so much. We finished our appetisers before the drinks arrived. The service was very slow and had to keep trying to get their attention and the restaurant wasn’t even busy. Had mentioned that it’s my husbands bday in the reservation and even called to remind them and yet they still forgot to mention it. Would think about it before going back.

Nice venue, good location but the food was poor - especially for the premium price tag. Chicken wings were dry, fried chicken tasteless, but the brisket wasn’t bad. Expect much more for a £40 meal!

The food is good, and, having been before, we were looking forward to the fried pickles. However this time they were almost inedible as was almost like eating pure vinegar. That said the meat is always great. The ribs cold have ben more tender but the chicken tenders and brisket were very good indeed.

Bland food
The Mac and cheese was very poor, resembling something you would buy packaged in a summer market
Beef short ribs - dry, no sauce, tasteless
Chips - taste of oil as so over fried

This place has lost its mojo. I use to always back Red Dog to deliver top bbq. This time round the food disappointed. Still great service but the food is not up to the standard it had previously set.

Good service and food came quickly. Food had great smoke flavours but lacked in tenderness that I have come to expect from this cuisine, maybe this is because we came late in the evening. Cocktails were very nice also.

Like everywhere, some things on the menu work, some don’t. How lucky you are depends on whether you’re a chicken or beef person: Southern fried chicken yum, short beef rib yuk. Oreo milkshake was too thin but the Oreo biscuit was a nice touch - don’t get that at GBK or Byron. GBK does the best Oreo milkshake in my view. The mac cheese would be great if the cheese wasn’t so synthetic.

Service was very good.

Found red dog saloon after a last minute search online. WOW what a find. Don’t let the unassuming exterior put you off as inside we experienced brilliant service and the most delicious food. Huge portions , fresh food and amazing value . My daughter who travels to America for a couple of months each year said it was the most authentic food she had eaten outside of Philadelphia.!!!!!
