About Black Dog NQ
Black Dog NQ is a New York inspired bar, diner and pool hall situated in the Northern Quarter underneath the famous Afflecks Palace.
The bar is the perfect venue for laid back brunches, impromptu cocktails and late night partying.
Excellent service. Pricing was very reasonable.
Excellent value for money and superb, quick service.
I thought the food was really nice, the service was brilliant (never needed to ask for a top up!) and really liked the atmosphere of the place! Will definitely visit again!
Fantastic service, great atmosphere. Very popular bar. Our group had the corporate table, would definitely visit again!
It isn't clear from the confirmation email which BDB the reservation has been made at. I wasn't aware there was more than one and so the group went to the wrong venue (Oxford road), where the manager was less than helpful in resolving the issue. Given that this was a 'stag do' for my father who is celebrating his 50th wedding anniversary this week and is not in great health I was very disappointed. Apprently they are not the first and are unlikely to be the last to make this mistake. Maybe it would be useful to make the venue more specific and obvious with the booking details. That said, when they arrived at the correct venue they had a fabulous time and reported that the staff and the food were amazing. Thank you BGB NQ!
Great value for huge pizzas and good cocktails.
Came for my hen do, had an amazing time ! The staff where absolutely brilliant, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. My only negative is my food was a bit cold but it was still really nice.
I hired a room at Blackdog Ballroom for my engagement party. They were very helpful from start to finish, I highly recommend their events team. They are wonderful if you need to hire a room or just party in the main area. I can’t thank them enough!
Really good value for money. Gorgeous food, great music and top service. Only thing that needs looking at is the pool cues, all seemed broke and chipped
Kelly was our waiter and he was ace. A few had dropped out of our party last min, but he was very accommodating. There was some confusion with food items missing and some people had to wait a little longer than other, but all were happy with food and Kelly was lovely keeping us to speed with the goings on in the kitchen etc. He even gave us one extra round of drinks after our allotted time had finished (bottomless brunch 2 hours). I enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the drinks were free flowing. Great experience and value for money
Great food , loved the loaded fries. Drink selection fantastic & brilliant service. This will be my go to place when in Manchester.
Great food, great music, great service, nothing else to say except we will be visiting again!
We had bottomless brunch and loved that they came round with the bottle and you were never sat with an empty glass x
We had a great time at brunch, and thevsyaff were extremely helpful and lovely. My friend is a vegetarian, and would have liked a little more variety in savoury options for vegetarians. The food we had was delicious however, and we will definitely return!
Great nights DJ & Pools tables great combo
My confirmation of reservation came through on my email but when I got there I wasn't on this list. I had to wait 2 hours for a table. The bar man was good and gave us free drinks and a free game of pool but was just really not impressed. Also there were people standing next to the pool table that weren't playing pool in our way. When we asked them to move they weren't nice. We played pool for 10 minutes in the end. Really bad experience :( wish we hadn't of bothered and won't be recommending...
First time ever bottomless brunching, will definitely be returning! Guaranteed to get your moneys worth and the food was gorgeous. Chicken and Bacon Waffles... highly recommend.
Had a great night shooting some pool and having a catch up with old friends. Good vibe
Food and atmosphere were fantastic. Will definitely ne coming back thx
Excellent friendly staff great value for money perfect place to unwind and have chilled fun
Great atmosphere, and staff 😃
The waitress very rude. I arrived on time, but my friend was running late due to his train arriving late. The first server was polite and explained the bottomless brunch would begin when the first drink is ordered. Another waitress then came over 15 minutes later and said that the booking commenced at 2pm. It felt very rushed and she didn’t serve with a smile so to speak. It wasnt as if the place was overly busy as well, or I would’ve understood her frustration
Bottomless brunch - food was just average - a bit cold and some were a bit dry.
Fantastic food and drinks. We booked for the bottomless brunch and the food was amazing! We did however have to ask a few times for our next round of drinks, this could have been due to how busy it was though! Staff were great!
Great room, nice staff and excellent facilities.
