Visited the Barking Frog last night (Wednesday),after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor.We arrived without booking a table and even though they were quite busy,we were seated right away.
The service was friendly and very helpful.We were served drinks and complimentary bread and dips while we waited for our starters.
I chose deep fried goats cheese and hubby had mushrooms in a pastry basket.Both delicious.
I had shoulder of lamb which was the best I have ever tasted, the meat was so tender it fell off the bone,hubby had a pasta dish with the most gorgeous garlic bread with tomatos and sweet red onion. Yum yum!
We couldn`t fit in a dessert but I am sure they would of been just as good.
It is not the cheapest restaurant in Southport,but if you don`t mind paying a little more for excellent food with service to match, then go!

The Barking Frog in Southport is my favourite restaurant. I live in North Yorkshire and regularly visit relatives in Southport so try to eat there as often as possible. The food and service are excellent and it is well worth the long drive.

I am a regular at the Barking Frog restaurant and would like to share with you how fantastic the food and ambience is, they can't do enough for their customers and offer an amazing menu which is changed each month. Every meal I have had there has been great and I recently spent my pre-wedding meal there with friends from outside the UK who also thought the food was outstanding.

I can honestly say it is the best restaurant in southport and you will have to travel quite a distance to get better.
