Been visiting the Hairy Dog for many years. Great selection of food and drink with a very large outside play area for children. Also dog friendly inside and out. Food is always excellent quality and plentiful but they do hike up the prices during the summer months, which is common practice in Minehead but unfair to the loyal locals.

Easter holiday in Minehead with the grandchildren. This is the third time we've eaten here because there is a great outdoor play area. The food is decent and reasonably priced and service quick even when busy. Don't suppose we'd eat here if it was just me and him but hard to find somewhere so child friendly.

Went in for our usual meal as we go there every time we stay at Butlins and considering we go 4 times a year and every might we eat in there. Well this year we were sadly disappointed I had chilli and when it arrive it was that dry it look like it had been sat in the bowl for a good few days let alone hours. Our chips we're cold and my son's steak was cold. Tried go get staff attention but they kept rushing past and we're not approachable. Tried to leave a comment on the way out but still no one to grab the attention of . Disappointing!

I imagine this place is very busy in high season. And with its central location, huge capacity, low prices and good quality I understand why.
It's exactly like a Wetherspoons but with sky sports.
Pint of Tribute £2 is incredible. The food was value too.
So if you want cheap town centre fare then this would suit. If you want more of a cosy pub atmosphere there are alternatives.
