The name is a historic remnant from the days when Denniston was a flourishing mining town and had a pub known as the Red Dog Saloon. This Westport restaurant/café/bar makes an effort to serve local produce, and the fish is always a good choice. Order turbot if it’s on the menu. A notable feature is the size of the portions; "generous" is an understatement. It is a popular place, but the kitchen is small and diners may face a wait for their meals.
