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.
Easy to book a pool table and friendly staff. Only area for improvement would be bigger pool tables. Other than that great spot for a game and beer. Well done.
We had a fantastic experience at Black Dog. When we arrived we were informed of the 50% off food offer currently running throughout January. It was a good job as we could have ordered one of everything on the menu. The food was fantastic and with all the sharing plates and pizza we were able to sample a huge amount of food. The service was fab and the atmosphere was good. The servers were really good with the dogs too. Bringing over water for them as soon as we arrived. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be heading back some day!!
-Place was packed out and although staff were friendly, they were clearly out of their depth and running around everywhere. Asked for orange juice and were told it would be a while before she’d have chance to get it. -although said bookings may be on separate tables, didn’t specify that it could be on two separate booths meaning that we were split in half and couldn’t even interact as we were completely separate -Food came out at different times, and some were ice cold. My friend had to ask for new veggie bacon as her whole meal was freezing -Booked because of the range of drinks, yet all we got was Prosecco. Asked for a drinks menu and no one brought us one or even asked us if we wanted a different drink - the being in two separate booths were a nightmare and if I knew this before hand I wouldn’t of booked it. We asked to swap to an empty larger table and were told no although it wasn’t reserved and was empty.
I've been coming here for years. We always feel welcome and enjoy the food and service
Staff very friendly
Had a great time at the brunch, staff were extremely helpful, they let us arrange the tables to suit us as there was quite a big group. The food was very good and came out quickly. The drinks were proper drinks as opposed to jugs of pre mix which ive experienced elsewhere. We did not have to request any top ups, they were readily available and we were allowed to keep the table for slightly longer until the next group turned up. Would highly recommend and would go again!
Impressed by the bar staff's service, given how busy it tends to get after 7pm!
Food was very good. Service was decent but not enough servers for the number of people. Definitely good value if staying to drink!!
Big good portions and great drinks. The bottomless brunch is amazing value for money.
Had a great time. Awesome food and amazing staff. Would 100% come back again.
Went for a few games of pool, couple of drinks and food. The pizza was really nice, and great value for money.
Service was average, waitress was slightly rude but who wouldn’t be when working between Christmas and New Year? Food took forever to arrive and when it did it was ok. Took half of my pizza home for later and when I got it out of the takeaway box, I found a huge pubic like hair cooked onto the pizza, almost underneath the cheese. Was safe to say that I didn’t eat the rest of my pizza and will never be eating here again.
This was my first experience at Blackdog NQ for bottomless brunch and I would definitely do it again! Great food and great service throughout!
This was the first time trying your brunch having tried a few that have been hit and miss. We really enjoyed the food (steak benedict) and the service was great, your staff were very friendly and our glasses never got the chance to be empty. Also great to have a lager option for non wine/fizz drinkers which is a good point of difference. Would recommend above some either venues we have tried , thanks!
Came with 6 friends. Great service a staff were very friendly and happy to provide refills
We had a fantastic time. The food was brilliant, and drinks really good. The lady who looked after us was absolutely fantastic, please could you pass on our thanks to her. I will email you direct with her name when I have a look at the receipt. Cheers
food and drink were of good standard but service a little slow - they needed more staff on. I also had to remind them about the pigs in blankets that were included
My friends and I attended on Saturday 21st for a bottomless brunch and had a fantastic time. The place was very busy with it being the Saturday before Christmas but despite this, the staff were wonderful and service was great. The food was excellent and my friend ordered a vegan meal which she was very impressed with. Great value for money and good atmosphere.
the process from booking to attending the event and leaving was great. Emma who helped with the booking was very efficient and responsive. Whilst at the venue, the staff were helpful and efficient. Food was better than expected to be fair so we were impressed. all in all a good night, thank you
Lovely bar with attentive staff - food was lovely and the drinks were free flowing! Minor issue with food which was resolved quickly and efficiently. Would definitely book again
Great service and good food
