We are visiting Geelong on a nostalgic trip as we lived here 10 years ago. We decided to go to The Barking Dog on Pako St as had eaten there a few times previously.

My husband had the slow cooked beef cheek with truffle infused gnocchi and mushrooms. After one mouthful he said you have to try this, it was melt in the mouth and full of flavour. I ordered the scotch fillet, which I normally don't order when dining out as I can cook that at home but we'd been away for a few days and felt like a steak. It came with onion tarte-ti-tan and smoked potato puree, tomato salsa and green beans. It was absolutely delicious, the flavours were great. One of the loveliest meals we've ever had in a pub. Highly recommend

A long-term feature on Pako Street in Geelong West which has evolved as the wallets of the patrons have grown fatter. There are a number of interesting and separate eating ventures within the facility - full marks for staying relevant!

After searching for a mid range pub meal we decided on The Barking Dog.
Got a car park out the back. Table was ready for us. Staff were friendly and efficient with food and drink orders. Meals were large and filling. We had an arrangement of the options - all satisfying. No disappointments.
The venue was good. It was a busy night. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

So very impressed with our visit to the barking dog today! The table service was second to none. Extremely friendly and professional staff. The food was beautiful. Arincini balls and croquettes absolutely beautiful. For a main I tried their vegan option, the vegan mac and cheese with vegetables. It was delicious! Everyone on the table had a try and they all really enjoyed it. The steaks were beautiful, all cooked well. The parmis were perfectly cooked. I tried the pornstar martini, very sweet but absolutely delicious! Would definitely come here again!

We were visiting family in Geelong and we had previously visited the Barking Dog before, last time (about 4 yrs ago) it was a bit dark and dingy looking but this time it was different as the place looked much brighter and cleaner.

We had lunch there and it was very nice, i had the ploughmans platter which i really enjoyed, the other people in my group had varying dishes and they all enjoyed their meals including the kids that were with us.

Decent enough selection of craft beer on offer and had to sample a guinness due to St Patricks Day as well.

Much better experience this time, cleaner, brighter and the staff were very good.
