As always the staff were friendly, welcoming and kind. The set up outside has been carefully thought out and works really well....Warm heaters, good cover and good app! Thank you, we feel lucky to have the dog as our local.

The Lazy Dog is ordinarily my favourite pub in Bristol, but unfortunately the experience I had on 12.5.21 left quite a bad taste in my mouth - despite the food itself being delicious. I had booked a seat via the Res Diary app to sit in the back garden under cover. I deliberately chose that position as it was available on the app and I steered clear of being seated on the tables out the front as I know the pub well and it wasn't the atmosphere I wanted, plus I knew it was going to rain. I got a confirmation through which said that my booking was secure. When I turned up the staff told me that the back garden was fully booked and that my partner and I had to sit outside on the front tables. It then poured with rain and we got wet. I would not have bothered booking if I'd known we were going to be put there. To add insult to injury, I was told on my booking that if I cancelled I'd be levelled with a £30 cancellation charge. I feel incredibly annoyed that my booking was not what I expected in terms of the seating that I thought I had booked. The Lazy Dog needs to be crystal clear with its customers regarding the seats they are getting, when they book through these apps, particularly when there's likely to be a £30 charge if they cancel it. Please sort this out.

We ate in the undercover tent in the garden, which is now a lovely space. Food was good and the staff and manager were very friendly and welcoming :)

Great local, nice pale ales, would be ideal if there were a few more (Arbors, Wiper and True's, Electric Bears etc) but better than many places!

We had a lovely meal in a particularly warm and comfortable outside seating area. The katsu mushroom burgers were great! The atmosphere scored lower purely because of the Covid social distancing situation forcing that down. I love the Lazy Dog, and the new outdoor cover and heaters are ace! Service was great and will be returning soon...Thank you.

Excellent as ever. Even the cold weather didn't spoil things. Food was not surprisingly fully booked in advance. A good rage of drinks that suited all four of us and was very reasonably priced given the quality. A good mix of ages and good split of women and men. Gin seemed very popular with the women! Service was friendly and efficient as always. The new Butlr app is a big improvement on the last and very easy to use. I was only an occasional visitor before Covid-19 but am a regular now. A great pub that has really stepped up in difficult times. Thanks to all at The Lazy Dog.
