Casual
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.

We were very pleased with Red Dog. The food was amazing, tasty and cooked very well. It is a rare treat to find good BBQ food in the UK and Red Dog is such a find. The service was good and the atmosphere of the restaurant was ideal. We will definitely go back.

The service was great, the girls were really friendly & helpful & just a pleasure to be served by. Great cocktails, music & ambience. Unfortunately the food just wasn’t that good. The ribs were good but not great. The rest seemed a bit undercooked & the sauces tasted of vinegar.
A shame as we had looked forward to this meal. We would return for the cocktails as they were great & the staff were fantastic.

The tables were sticky, food came was overall unimpressed. The burgers were awful, brisket was dry and several other recommended items on the menu by our waiter came and were bland and were not eatable. I took a bite of each item and had kindly asked the waiter to send all of our food back and kindly asked for the bill. Above the food being below average the noise level was unbearable. We could not hear our selves think let alone talk with one an other. The toilet was dirty and both male and female had to share the same restroom.
I am deeply disappointed with this visit and would strongly recommend nobody to waste your time and money on a place like this.

Ruined by a group larger than six people with their drunken behaviour, loudness, lack of effort to adhere to social distancing, and sitting or any empty table inside/outside. Might have been a nicer experience otherwise . Staff were pleasant, efficient and very helpful.

Would probably avoid this restaurant. Went here with a few mates a couple of days ago as we wanted a proper feast. Limited menu wasn't great and we were looking forward to the brisket but it wasn't available. Lack of options was disappointing. There were about 5 burgers to choose from and a pretty basic drinks menu (5 beers, with our top choices also unavailable).

The food came in a decent time. The wings (hickory smoked) tasted not dissimilar to the microwave ones you get in Tesco, and were small. No meal seemed to include sides, so you need to order separately. We got the pricey "loaded fries" which were quite bland.

The servers were unattentive and not welcoming. Felt like a bit of a chore. We also booked quite far in advance but got sat by the toilet door (as in, we were half inside the corridor where the loo is). There's only one toilet in the whole place so there were people queuing next to us a few times.

The burger I had was OK. It was a spicy burger which was indeed very spicy, and if it was £5 cheaper would consider getting it again (on takeaway). All in all, wouldn't recommend.

Went out for a birthday, just the two of us. Firstly we were placed in the middle of the restaurant but asked to move which the staff were more than happy to do. Amazing food! And great service!

My favourite BBQ spot anywhere in the UK, so authentic. The carnivore platter is amazing, and we loved it. Fresh, hearty, proper American grub.

Menu changed a little since we were last there; my partner wanted the Mac and cheese but she can’t eat peppers and the staff wouldn’t make it without jalapeños, also a couple other menu items listed on this open table app aren’t available either so a couple things we fancied weren’t available on the day, was a little disappointing. Also we were the only people there so it was a strange vibe sitting in an empty place but I guess that can’t be helped, strange on a Friday afternoon though.

Regardless, the food was excellent, staff very very helpful and even though it’s a little expensive, it always feels so worth it, happy to pay the money. Will certainly be back ASAP.

The food didnt stand out for the price you're paying. It felt a little like I was eating a wetherspoons dinner. The chicken wings are tiny, nothing different than what you would get in your local pub and there were 4 of them. I would say they were more the size of pigeon wings than chicken.
I had the loaded chips which werent exactly loaded. There was nothing about them that stood out, felt like that came straight from a bag.
The beef brisket was tasty though.
The service was good but took a while to get the drinks.
This was first restaurant I've been to since lock down so I was very excited but it was unfortunately disappointing.

Only two staff who were very friendly and did their best but seemed overwhelmed. Half an hour from sitting down until drinks arrived.

Food - smoked meats were tender, wings were OK. But everything was lukewarm and wildly oversalted.

There seemed to be a lot of bill disputes on tables around us as the till obviously isn't set up to deal with the 50% discount scheme.

Booked a table, sat at table for good half hour plus without any staff service. Asked twice to give our order and weren't even able to order drinks in that time. In the end, we gave up and walked out.

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.

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.
