Went for a pub meal that we have previously enjoyed at this venue, to discover a "share" style menu. It was suggested we try several different dishes to share. Um bit pricey for this! We ordered a beef curry $30 and a Drunken Duck $36 and had to purchase a $6 serve of steam rice to accompany same. The Drunken Duck was with Brocollini ..... um it was served with Bok choy. The Asian spices were the pieces of cinnamon stick and star of annise that needed to be lifted out. It had smashed and shattered bones all the way through it..... road kill comes to mind. The total cost of our meal $100. That was the above plus one glass Chardonnay one glass apple cider and a bottle of sparkling water.
Not sure when this new menu arrived but it's not one we will revisit.
Staff were lovely.

Thank Kathy O

Food was good calmer salads excellent, parmigiano good, children's menu generous,
Overall the food staff good attentive, my only disappointment was the FOUL language coming from the next table ( female patrons). This encouraged us to leave with the children as soon as we finished our meals and going elsewhere for desert.

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!
