“Great Tapas”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Can't believe I live less than a mile away yet I've never really bothered to go. Went last night, we had every Tapas dish on the menu and more!


Lovely place and nice staff, will be using it more often.

“Nice , but not outstanding”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Went to the barking frog last night. Had three courses each. Complimentary bread and dips served before the meal ( very nice touch). I had the black pudding fritter and my wife had the greek salad. Both very nice , followed by sea bass and steak. The food was good. The service was great and the resturant is quite nice and trendy . While I don't have any complaints about anything I must say nothing really wowed either of us. Don't get me wrong, we had a nice meal and I feel it was very good value for money but to be rated in the top 5 resturants in the area I was expecting a little bit better. Nothing really new or exiting on the menu, but there were specials on that I'm told vary every day. I will go back to the barking frog but I wouldn't recommend it for very special occasions, it's quite a casual place with a nice drinks lounge on one side of the building, separate from the resturant which works well. I don't want to put anyone off with the title of this review but all in all there isn't anything on the menu you won't find in a thousand other places across the country, however, very good quality and very good value for money.
