About Black Dog NWS
Black Dog New Wakefield Street is a New York style bar and diner showing all the live UK and American sports with a pool hall, roof terrace and basement nightclub, Underdog.
We booked the rooftop terrace for our UK wedding reception having got married abroad. The room was lovely and with a few additional bits of decoration really looked great. The staff were fantastic. Emma, the manager, was so helpful and happy to go through things with us as many times as we needed (and we needed to go through it quite a bit- I was a slightly stressed out bride!) and the bar staff were so sweet. Food was great, no complaints there and very reasonable. We bought drinks vouchers for all our guests and that went down really well and is a great option. All in all a great night was had by all and we would certainly recommend the Black Dog Ballroom to anyone for their event.
Great value for money, impressed with how easy it was to book, great sociable snack food, music gets very loud and difficult to talk after a certain time
Great venue, great atmosphere, loved the music! Only slight development area was that one of the staff members behind the bar obviously didn't want to be there which didn't help the mood. He wasn't rude just short and disinterested.
The food was nice but when I made the booking I said we had 2 vegetarians in the party and to make sure there were vegi options. The vegi options on the night consisted of 2 sliders (so one each) 4 tiny vegi kebabs (2 each and hardly filling) and one cheese and tomato pizza which because it was put out first before any of the other pizzas all the none vegis had a slice and one of the vegis didn't even get to have any. When I explained what had happened to a staff member and asked if there was any more vegi pizza I was told "no that's it now for your booking." So the vegetarians in our party had to fill up on chips and nachos. I was really disappointed considering I had actually paid the price for 16 meat eaters (I notice your vegi buffet option is actually cheaper). Other than that the atmosphere in the venue was good and the drinks were really good.
Second time of hiring this particular room at Black Dog NWS and it did not disappoint. Great atmosphere and the event ran smoothly without issue. Food was great and there was plenty choice and the drinks selection accommodated for everyone who attended. The bar staff were fantastic and a great night was had by all. Would definitely hire the venue again and recommend it to anyone.
I was disappointed with the karaoke room. It’s badly presented and the machine was difficult to use (and filthy!) Drinks were good but as there was only one person serving we had to wait a long time. The only good think about the booking was we could have the room for a large group, making it reasonable value for money.
Hi Cassandra Thanks for your feedback - our karaoke room will be undergoing some refurbishment work soon. We're glad you felt it was good value for money and hope you'll join us again after the work has been done. - Black Dog
