Mushroom risotto lacked taste. Ordered cappuccino, came as filter coffee. Lydia waitress very sweet. Food a bitvoverpriced but realise times are hard.

From the minute we arrived the experience was amazing. The Ibiza type vibe outside with the music playing and luckily the sun shining started our night perfectly. The food and cocktails were outstanding but most of all the staff were so attentive, professional and friendly. What a team you have. We will definitively be back.

Team were great. Food was ok. Not the best chateaubriand we’ve had. For the price you can get better. Staff were however lovely and very attentive. No issue with them.

The food was lovely, particularly the risotto. It was a little more expensive than we had expected (didn't look at the menu before hand) but we were very happy with food so the price makes sense. The service was great, lovely young ladies who were very chatty. The domes provided a lovely little bubble, there were a few very loud customers in another dome but not a lot can be done about them. Overall we would book again but more likely for a special occasion than a regular evening out.

This was our first visit to the Black Dog. First the positives: the outdoor dining area and domes were really good; staff were friendly and the food was of a good standard and well presented. However, the service for our visit was poor. First we were brought a starter not ordered and which we were later charged for despite assurances this would not happen. There was a long wait between starter and main course of approx 40m. Main dishes or sides were not brought together with a wait of around 10mins. And overall service was slow throughout despite there being only around 5-6 tables of customers. We did raise the service at the end and were told the manager was willing to offer a shot each, but this seemed inadequate compensation. Given the surroundings and food this could be a really good place, but based on our experience we are unlikely to return.

Over £11 for a large, basic wine is appalling The table was inappropriately huge in the dome hardly any room to move Service really great Menu not very exciting

Pork belly was very dry. No staff asked about how things were with the food at the time of eating so didn't have the chance to mention above. The burger was average for the price. Shame about the food as the place is lovely for drinks.

Frustrating lack of communication leading up to the dinner — messages ignored, phone calls not answered. One of the two light bulbs missing in the dome. Five steaks ordered with different cooking times, all arrived together, the waitress had no idea which was which so neither did we.The fillet steak was cold, grey in colour with a piece of gristle attached. This was a much anticipated dinner for 8 family members to celebrate my son’s 5oth birthday and it was inappropriate to make a fuss at the time, An expensive, disappointing evening.

Myself and 3 friends visited on Friday 7th May whilst eating indoors was still restricted. We had a dome which was clean, dry, warm and nicely presented. The staff were attentive and friendly. We were quite a fussy bunch with food choices and every request was catered for. The food was amazing and presented beautifully. And the cocktails were delicious too. Good value for money. We will be back. Thank you.

We enjoyed our food and the young lady who served us was lovely .She couldn't have been more helpful . We had difficulty accessing the menu on our phone ( I know this is due to restrictions) and would have thought it simpler just to have it written on a board .

Came here with my partner for our anniversary meal, the staff are absolutely lovely!! I absolutely loved my food I had the rump steak and some sides and it was all beautiful, my partner had the steak burger he wasn’t as impressed as I was he said it was over priced for what it was.
