I discovered Barking Deer Brewpub on Zomato just when I was looking for a nice cozy place to hang out with a friend. Considering the positive response from other foodies, my friend and I decided to give it a try.
Situated at prestigious Mathuradas Mill compound, Barking Deer has its own aura. Big enough sitting area for small and big groups is well organized. Their in-house beer menu is displayed on the board (along with prices) right at the entrance. One small corner is dedicated for the collection of games they offer to their visitors – Dart, Jenga, Board games. And every time I enter this restaurant, I am greeted by brewing smell which relaxes me immediately.
Choose from their in-house beer menu – Flying Pig, Bombay Blonde, Bark IPA, Honey Bee Braggot, Fallen Angel, Bavarian Pale Ale… My personal Favorite is Bombay Blonde.
If you are confused about the choice of beer to order, ask them for sample taste. Visit at happy hours and get one-on-one free offer. Apart from wide range of beer menu (in-house as well as imported), they offer good range of cocktails and liquors for non-beer drinkers.
Food menu was strictly American and Italian which qualified as finger food. I was tempted to order Burger but ended up ordering Fusilli with Creamy Spinach which turned out to be good decision. Pasta was perfectly creamy and spinach blended well with the cheese. Texas Grilled Chicken was passable – chicken was hard to cut, it definitely needed more marination. My friend ordered Grilled Chicken with Spaghetti which was good to go. We reached the conclusion that Italian food options are far better served in this restaurant and is value for the money.
Quick, attentive and courteous – the attitude of the staff was praise worthy.
PS- Just when we were checking out, we were offered free membership card with added (complimentary) points to it. On our second visit, we decided to redeem these complimentary points and the points which we had earned out of our previous bill and we had to pay Rs. 300 only for the bill of Rs. 1600. Thank you Barking Deer for this wonderful offer for the first time customer.
Verdict: A good place to catch up on friends along with freshly brewed beer and games. I am definitely visiting this place again for the overall good experience. Highly recommended for the beer lovers!
