Food was well priced and tasted great. Downside was some of the seating was a bit awkward and service lacked a little due to under staffing at the time.

Visited the pub on a Friday evening, for a meal and catch up with friends. The menu appeared to cater for all tastes and there were a number of specials on the blackboard plus a very good range of real ales and wines. Fortunately, we had booked a table, as the place was full, but we only had a short... More

Words cannot describe how great this steak was. It was cooked to perfection and the meat itself was melt in the mouth, probably the best steak I have ever had. Well done grundisburgh dog!

We called into the Dog on the way back from the Suffolk coast during half term week and were so glad we did. The pub wasn't busy as it was only 6.30pm so we had no problem getting a table. We ordered 3 main meals and drinks and whilst the service wasn't the fastest, when the food arrived it was... More

Four very happy people smiled and said their goodbyes, following a delightful evening in a traditional Suffolk pub. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, tasty staters, delicious steaks and scrummy puds. Service couldn't have been bettered, thank you.

We visited the Dog, a regular venue over the last three years when on holiday in Woodbridge. This visit wasn't up to the very high standards set in the past due mainly to the poor maner we were addressed in when we arrived and mentioned we had a reservation. The gentleman did not know where table 12 was this could... More

Lovely village pub. Food was decent and service was at decent speed. Atmosphere was good also with a nice bar area. Only small issue would be the dining area is a bit small but nothing major. Apart from that decent visit and I like the rustic Pugh-like furniture in the restaurant!

The Dog offers a relaxed and as the name suggests ‘dog friendly’ drinking and dining environment. So firstly if you don’t own a dog and you don’t like dogs being in the eating restaurant area with you, then this is not the place for you. However if you have a well behaved hound that enjoys socialising with you then The... More
