We decided to take a break from Butlins for the afternoon. 24 of us went for lunch and considered that had to get 24 meals out at the same time food was lovely and hot and plenty of it. Some people I've noticed have complained about the price of drinks but personally I didn't think they were that bad. We... More

On a day out and needed a lunch break and this place looked interesting. It was well worth a visit and we enjoyed a snack lunch. The homemade tomato soup was to die for. The only draw back if you were disabled was the toilets were up stairs but they were spotless.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, however, the food was really not up to scratch. I had the lasagne - it was over powered by herbs and the cheddar cheese on the top was way too much. I couldn't eat it all.

Hi, sorry you thought our chefs fresh homemade, made with the best ingredients, lasagne was not to your liking.. On future occasions if you tell us at the time, something is not up to standard we will always do our best to put the situation right. Regards Chris More

There were plenty of tables to choose from on our arrival. The menu has a varied selection of meals and although more expensively priced than similar restaurants, we all felt the food was of a high quality. There are tvs throughout aimed at sports fans.

Meals arrived very quickly, staff very polite. The mixed grill was massive and hubby was very happy, I thoroughly enjoyed my veggie burger too. Couldn't squeeze... More

Stumbled upon this place whilst visiting butlins. Was looking for somewhere to eat whilst strolling trough the town. I saw that it offered a play area and having a four year old that's a plus. Well they weren't joking when they said play area. It was huge! Plenty of tables out and you can see the park from the tables... More

Not many places open during winter so we were pleased to find the Hairy Dog. The staff were great and the food was honest pub grub, just what we wanted on a cold winters night
