    The Brown Dog is a lovely local pub, hidden away in the back streets of Barnes like a calm oasis. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was delicious, especially the Sunday roast, which was one of the best roasts I've ever eaten.

    Booked table outside because BD website said "...we have just completely covered and heated our beautiful terrace...", however no table, heater or covering set up for us, despite re-confirming. Very cold, no-one else outside, but BD didn't bother to contact us, nor to save us a table inside. Inside utter chaos: massively 'over-crowded', cramped tables placed ridiculously close together, people stood at bar shouting to be heard, very hot, therefore slow service. Food looked good, but avoid busy Friday or Saturday nights because they clearly over-book!

    A favourite neighbourhood pub - food is all excellent and massive portions so great value. The pizzas are excellent. Very hospitable and friendly staff and of course super dog friendly! It’s a real gem in the Barnes area!

    Excellent local. Had a “simple” pub lunch with a friend from out of town. Everything was done right - friendly and unhurried service, classic fare cooked very well, and a great wine and beer selection. A real gem.

    We go to Brown Dog quite often, but will propably don’t chose a Friday evening again. It wasn’t very cosy! Extremely bad acustic. Also, ot would be great to see some more alternatives in the menue, especially as we would like to consider this as our best local pub.

    Great food & excellent service. Only drawback was the noise level from many young children that were screaming the place down. Not the pub’s fault at all, more that of the selfish parents who choose to ignore the thoughts of fellow diners.

    This was going to be the first time I visited The Brown Dog in a few years and expectations were high - I was coming here with someone who had never been and was constantly raving about it, so hoped it would be as great as I remembered it to be. Amazingly, it's even better than I remembered! We both had the pie which was phenomenal and the Hazy Jane and Siren IPA to drink. Those working there were so lovely and friendly, and the atmosphere was just right. There was lively music but it was never so overbearing that you couldn't hear the other person, and lots of dogs that you could say hello to! Perfect.
