Like many others I was interested in visiting the newly reopened Dog in a Doublet, purely to satisfy my curiosity as I hadn't heard much about it, yet often passed the door.
We received a very warm welcome from the bar staff and couple of what I can only assume are regluars(?) as it seems the management had the night off.
We only wanted a light dinner so chose to order from the bar menu displayed on a chalk board at the end of the bar. We decided to have a beef burger each, that and two cokes came to just under £10.
Managed to find room on a sofa next to two dogs.
The burgers arrived after a good 15/20 mins..... On a side plate. Im not exaggerating when I say the burger can not have been more than 2.5inch in diameter and 1/2 an inch thick. Cooked to near cremation. It looked to be a frozen job, deep fried. Terrible lack of flavour. The bun was even smaller. No chips. No salad. NOT EVEN ANY SAUCE. We had to ask for it. I didn't know if I should laugh? Was this a joke? The chap serving it look thoroughly embarrassed. Eventually after an awkward silence we asked if there were any chips on the way? No. But we could order some!!
The chips (I believe to be called D chips) were very nicely presented but soggy with grease and were quite hard work to eat.
We decided to leave when the dog let rip next to me....
We were not asked to pay for the chips, and as the burgers had been so appalling I don't think I would have anyway, but it was a nice gesture.
I hope the standard of the burger has improved, as that, and the dogs flatulence really were all that let it down. I actually really like the pub as the staff and locals are very friendly.
