I ended up for dinner in The Barking Dog on the Malone Road on Friday night for a lovely meal with fellow Queens Radio seminar sohorts - Matt, Keith and Kathy - fresh from teaching us all how to read the news.
The Barking Dog is just up from The Bot and right across the road from the Eglantine Inn. Didn't it used to be the other Gourmet Burger Bank branch?
Anyway, parking was easy. The atmosphere inside was good. The service was fun and friendly - perhaps even slick!
I loved the menus that were attached to wooden clipboards - gimmicky but not pretentious. Reasonable selection of food, enough to choose from.
My home-made scotch egg starter was fresh, warm and runny. And the main course gnocchi was tasty and not stodgy.
Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. And the prices weren’t extravagant. You can always check out local comparison site Lookaly and see if anyone else has anything to say about it.
I’ll be back. Soon.
