Where To Take The Boyfriend: Red Dog Saloon, Hoxton Square

Where To Take The Boyfriend: Red Dog Saloon, Hoxton Square


Struggling for ideas as to where to take your boyfriend for dinner? Look no further than Red Dog Saloon in Hoxton Square.

On a recent trip we decided this was probably the perfect place to take a hungry man on a date, for his birthday, or just a Friday night treat. The reason? The portions are big, the staff are mega friendly and it’s minutes from the party hubs of Shoreditch and the City. So you can have a few relaxing beers (we recommend the Brooklyn East IPA, with strong authority, thanks to our other halves) and the best burger you’ve ever eaten before meeting friends.


We arrived hungry (which is the only way to do so – the menu is extensive and you need an appetite to match) and ordered the Wing Sampler, a huge array of large chicken wings doused in varying sauces. Next up was Pulled Pork from the Pit-Q-Bar-B-Q, Ribs and a Californian Burger – with lashings of guacamole, applewood smoked bacon and mozzarella.

Washed down with Beverly Hills Iced Tea and Boston Sours, we were soon well on our way to a memorable night out. Each dish seemed better than the last (though we’re not sure if that was helped by the copious amounts of alcohol – either way, we don’t care), the highlight being the sumptuous burger – we’ll be on a diet for weeks following that, but it was totally worth it!

If your other half has a particularly large appetite, we highly recommend he tries the Devastator Challenge. We’ll leave the details to the experts (just asked a member of staff on arrival) but if he’s up to it,  it’s definitely worth the schlep…
