The Barking Dog

The Barking Dog has long been one of Geelong’s favourite dining & drinking spaces. Located on trendy Pakington Street, Geelong West, the Barking Dog is a central meeting place for friends and family of all ages.

With a complete renovation (July 2010) The Barking Dog has virtually been turned on its head…

Art-deco light fittings, modern art sourced from London, colourful seating and an abundant use of textures are just some of the new features certain to catch patrons’ attention. The versatile use of the existing space offers more dining and drinking options in the bar, deck and additional private dining booths.

With the new space comes a new menu by executive chef Stuart North…

Expanding traditional entrée, main and dessert to small plates and shared tapas with a light lunch & wood fired pizza menu, you can enjoy a bite to eat with local & imported alcoholic beverages including an extensive local wine list. Innovative dishes feature quality produce, with the menu changing seasonally.

Taste and aroma combining to deliver you a little indulgence…

By day, The Barking Dog specializes in first class coffee and other hot and cold beverages, and a vast selection of sweet treats.

Add live entertainment, a contemporary lounge space and a function room and you have The Barking Dog today…

The Barking Dog is available for functions, see venue hire for our function packages.
