Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was a last-minute choice as we had a dog and the previous venue was unsatisfactory. It was a Saturday afternoon, and I had doubts getting a table for five, but the staff were accommodating and brilliant. The venue is dog friendly and we were...shown quickly to our table even though busy. The service was excellent and the food was superb. Definitely return with a bigger pair of jeansMore

Our burgers were tasty and nicely cooked but not worth £20 ish each (without fries). Also a 10% service charge was added on to the bill without our knowledge (we only noticed the small print at the bottom of the receipt after we had already...paid). We won't be going back unfortunately.More

Me and my husband decided to eat here Saturday afternoon which was a very costly mistake… £92 lighter and still hungry. There are a few comments on here about the price of the brisket and I completely agree £18+ for a few slices of beef...is outrageous, £5.50 for a pot of fries again outrageous. I would recommend the mash and burnt ends but at £7.50 not sure the price reflects. All of the staff were pleasant and accommodating which was the highlight. I always believe that you get what you pay for but honestly I came away feeling robbed and not the treat we’d worked hard for.More

This was our first visit to Red Dogs in nearly a year, and I have to say, I was really disappointed. The biggest disappointment was the price - it has become very expensive! There were 4 of us, 3 had a burger and fries, one...had brisket and no fries. With a drink each it came to £140! Since when did a burger and fries meal cost £35? The biggest rip off is the sides. When you are paying £16-£20 for a burger, you expect it to come with at least fries. A small cup of fries adds £5.50 to the price. If we had wanted onion rings (we didn’t due to the price) that would have been £7.50! The food was okay. Nothing spectacular, but nothing particularly wrong with it. I had the “When Bouffalant Met Patricia” burger. I ordered the chicken extra hot, and there was no heat in it at all. Also, the crispy coating was extremely salty. Overall it tasted okay though. My brother ordered brisket. He said it was nice but he got 4 slices on a plate, a small pot of sauce and nothing else for the grand total of £18.75. It looked like a starter to be honest. Maybe it’s just me, but nearly £5 for a slice of brisket is taking the pi$$. Since my last visit, the menu has changed completely, and I don’t think it has been for the better. I left last time thinking I’d had a good meal for a fair price, this time I left feeling ripped off which is a shame. I won’t be back.More

What an absolute shame, this was a great place to visit a year ago but now you’d avoid it like the plague! Waitress was lovely but the food was inedible. New menu needs to be scrapped and chef/cook with it. We are not fussy people...but my daughter ended up being sick there straight after eating. Blue Plate should be avoided at all costs, even the smell turns your stomach.More

My partner booked a table for 7pm, we got asked to go to the bar and wait where we weren’t served a drink until 7.20 (no it wasn’t that busy). We then got sat at 7.25 with no apology from staff and right in the...middle of the sports section, next to the entrance/exit door. The staff were all-round rude and had no care, weren’t even asked about sources when seated and then given the wrong ones when we asked! Our server then sniggered at us when we asked to remove the service charge! Awful place, don’t bother.More

Visited here for lunch today and walked away very disappointed. Asked for my burger to be extra spicy which it wasn’t, the burger was brown chicken and fatty. Also asked for crispy bacon which it wasn’t. Overall very disappointed and will not be visiting again,...even if it was free. The female waitress got defensive when I told her what I wasn’t happy with. As stated, I will not recommend it won’t visit again.More

Booked a table for as a romantic meal for two.... We were then seated in the sports bar with bloody football on the screens. I asked for us to be moved but they declined. We already had ordered our food but my partner wanted us...to cancel and leave due to my hate of football but I said no we will put up with it. The volume was loud and the area was dimly light. This made the viewing of the menu hard....I could read the print in a bible easier....and the menu was very shabby looking and not in a good way. The staff were pleasant... The food....we had 2 burgers and 4 drinks....oh and fries!!! It was OK but the reason for leaving this review and I never usually leave a "moaning" one is that I had my pants pulled down over the price..... My other half grabbed the reciept and said .....guess how much? £50? No......higher!!!! £70 quid.....£15 average tasting burgers and fries were extra....nearly £20...really Sadly this is our first and last time here. I would have been more excited about giving my £70 to a homeless bloke.... So a Saturday night out ended within a hour....went home and had some cheese on toast..with Worcester Sauce...Lea & Perrins ofcourse..More

Disappointing Reserved a table on the quieter side of the restaurant. Unfortunately, the service took a downturn after the initial drink order, with 30-minute intervals between visits from the staff. We were informed that certain items on the menu were unavailable, and the blender was...broken, ruling out shakes as well. The long wait for our food was disappointing, and my side order of fries was underwhelming—25 small, burnt fries priced at £4.50. Despite requesting sauces, none arrived. Overall, the food was mediocre, and I won't be recommending this restaurant to friends. We also asked for the service charge to be removed from the billMore

What can I say! Arrived on time for a family meal and were told the table was not ready, took over 40 minutes for it to be ready! Sat down ordered and the food came bit by bit, imagine your burger coming 5 minutes before...your fries! My double spicy doomsday burger looked OK when it arrived but one squash and it was mush and only an inch thick, not good considering the burger was £20 and the fries were £4.50. Went for a visit to the toilet which was far far away and up numerous flights of stairs, only to be met with bags over the urinals, drips of water from the tap and no soap! Disgusting. When the bill came there was a 10% surcharge added so you had no option. Places like that should focus on delivery of good food and service and earn the top not expect it! I would give this place a wide berth!More
