Have never had a bad meal here. Service is always friendly and efficient. The butternut squash and goats cheese gnocchi is a delicious starter, please put it back on the main menu ! The steaks are not cheap but the best I have had. Also the burger and the fish and chips are delicious. Cocktails are discounted between 5pm and 7pm and the barman will make anything for you even if not on the menu. Super friendly. Sticky toffee pudding was amazing and staff are happy to substitute cream for ice cream if you ask. Lovely place inside and loads of space outside for sunny days. Large garden area as well if you have kids that want to run around. Will return here time and time again.

Ate here on a busy Friday night, food was ok but just pub food really at very over inflated prices, service was ok, good selection of wine.
Pleasant interior and nice seating outside for a drink in the sunshine but we won't eat here again as there's so much choice around Bramhall/Cheadle and for the price we paid I would rather eat in a restaurant.

Pointing dog is a really good place with plenty of potential good food good atmosphere slightly prices but is on the higher end of food and service. Had confit duck starter was lovely and presented superb. Had chicken main slightly disappointed because all I got on my large plate was a chicken breast and a leg!!! Needed a potato and some veg, sauce/jus to finish this well executed dish off.

Called in here last night with my girlfriend and was amazed as to why I hadn't heard about this place before. The food was superb, the atmosphere was fantastic and the staff were really friendly. They've got a great beer garden outside which i'll definitely visit again this summer.
A must go for me!

Shocked to see recent negative reviews, went here the other day and the service, food and drinks were all to a very high standard. Nice atmosphere, modern and stylish throughout. Great menu selection, difficult to decide but I ended up having the aubergine cottage pie which was delicious. Highly recommend! Great location to stop off as it was after a trip back to Manchester from Alton Towers. The service was flawless and prices were reasonable and comparative to similar restaurants we have been to. Definitely will be visiting again, keep up the good work!
