Great Irish pub with fantastic atmosphere. Good beer and cider on tap, Irish tunes playing in the background and plenty of Irish staff all added to the fun. We had dinner here - portions were generous and the meals were full of flavour.

Went there in a group of friends for some good, old fashioned, comfort food. Ordered the bangers & mash......Which, according to the menu online consisted of Pork sausages served on a bed of colcannon with caramelised onion and finished off with parsnip crisps, peas and gravy. What arrived was disappointing for a simple dish........ Pretty sure the Sausages were lamb... More

Visited twice, and enjoyed it very much. Friendly service, good beer and food. Sausage platter and Roast Beef were both very good. Second night enjoyed some good live music. Don't request Wagon Wheel!

Had a few pints and some lunch here, guiness acceptable, had a steak special very appealing and pleasing. Staff friendly and efficient, large establishment but a quiet day when we visited hope to catch some banter and craic on a second visit

Many of the restaurants in Christchurch were closed on Monday night, so we were glad to find the lively Bog open and busy. Food portions were large and tasty- typical pub fare. The table and stools were not so comfortable, but the service was friendly and we enjoyed our dinner.

My wife and I came here for a quick bite and a brew. Having been told about the "Pea Pie and Pud" I ordered same. Pie was warm on delivery and cold within minutes., mushy peas were just peas mashed in a blender, and the chips were so so. Service was however great, and the Guinness one of the better... More
