    How nice to see you!


    You'll find us in the green neighbourhood of Cheadle Hulme.

    Sitting pretty in our own grounds and gardens we are a Bar and Restaurant open daily, dedicated to the consumption of fine food and drink.
    We are inspired by the metropolitan and vibrant heart strings of the surrounding City of Manchester yet balanced with the wholesome vitality from the heartlands of Cheshire countryside.
    Our locations reflect our ethos for enjoying the privilege of seasonality and field time harvest from our surrounding country lands.

    Matched with a modern dining attitude means we settle for nothing but the finest from field to pot and contents of plate and glass.

    Come, eat and stay a while, sit and let us bring to you plates of taste and nourishment for daily dining, special treats and happy times.

    Drink with us and we'll make sure your glass is never empty or at least always half full.

     

    Be sure to ask for our Treats & Tipple Card to enjoy our Food Sales and exclusive treats!

    • Waken, lords and ladies gay,
      On the mountain dawns the day;
      All the jolly chase is here
      With hawk and horse and hunting-spear;
      Hounds are in their couples yelling,
      Hawks are whistling, horns are knelling,
      Merrily merrily mingle they,
      Waken, lords and ladies gay.

      Sir Walter Scott

    Wine Club Review

    The Pointing Dog was delighted to welcome Felix Moreno, Export Director of Bodegas Senorio de Ayles to host an evening of their wines with an Iberian inspired menu out together by our chefs especially for Wine Club.

    The evening began with the estates Aldeya , Tempranillo Rose which was matched with Flambeed Gambas with Chilli and Spring Onion. This dry rose , lived up to its billing and stood firm against the spiced backbone of the 1st course.

    The Rose was the closest thing to a white that evening, as what followed was an exquisite flight of award winning reds which went from strength to strength… literally!!

    Ayles are one of only fourteen Spanish wineries which have been awarded the coveted “Pago” status. This national and European accolade recognises the breadth of quality and distinction a winery has achieved with its wines, and is the pinnacle for any Spanish winery. In the case of Ayles it has been the reds which have captured the imagination.

    The first red of the evening was the Garnacha , Aldeya, which has been a staple of the Pointing Dog list which offers an incredible bottle for the money. Rich in fruits of the forest, this was paired with a playful Charcuterie platter, which set the tone nicely for the rest of our dinner.

    The next three reds were an oneological Sesame Street, the first being the “A” from Ayles. This blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon was barrel fermented in French Oak, which gave it a level of complexity and structure, without the ubiquitous oaky characters which don’t suit all. This velvety red was poured with an open rabbit lasagne , which courteously gave the “A” the road in the flavour stakes.

    The alphabet game continued with “Y” of Ayles pitted against a succulent Lamb Kleftiko. The Kleftiko compromised of a slow braised lamb shoulder served with a pomme puree. The “Y” which is the same blend as the “A”, has however, been aged in French oak barrels which gives a vanilla backbone to the pallet. This was a must with the sweet juicy lamb and creamy mash.

    The final letter “E” of Ayles , which is a French oak aged Tempranillo, is atypical if compared with its Northern Rioja neighbours. The oak is subtle and well integrated and the wine is silky and elegant, without the macho-ness of Rioja. Alongside this stunner, Wine Club enjoyed a hearty Venison Bourguignon which tested the appetite.

    The curve ball of the evening was the final wine which challenged the age old mantras of matching food and wine. The dessert , a chocolate and caramel parfait was accompanied with the Syrah, Serendipia. This incredible creation of bitter chocolate, pepper and black cherry simply blossomed in the company of the salted caramel.

    It was another incredible evening for Wine Club, with Felix keeping us all entertained with a behind the scenes insight into the workings of this iconic winery.

    Our next oenological soiree will be a night of cheese and wine on the 12th May. Watch out for details - coming soon!

    Wine Club: Report

    Our resident wine expert Oliver Haussels from C&O Wines reporting from ringside seats from our last Wine Club dinner at Pointing Dog.

    Ding Ding...Over to Oliver!

    It was another full house in the Dog for the New World v Old World , Clash of the Titan –esque wine evening. This bacchanalian marathon consisted of 5 gruelling rounds which pitted 2 competing wines against Chef’s crafted dishes, with Queensbury Rules observed throughout.

    Round 1 – Sparkling Wines
    The first bout of the evening involved the prize-fighting Champagne Joseph Perrier – Cuvee Royale – Brut versus South Africa’s fresher Kaapse Vonkel – Cap Classique from second generation Simonsig Estate in Stellenbosch. As the bell went these closely matched duo both displayed vigour and zip. However the veteran Champagne showed its 200 years-worth of experience with its elegant staying power and lasting ability until the bell.

    Round 2 – Riesling
    Our second contest’s protagonists hailed from the Mosel Valley in Germany and the Eden Valley, Australia. In the Old World corner Weingut Otto Gorgen surprised the baying crowd with its dry crisp elegant Riesling with incredible youthful agility and panache. However Yalumba, Australia’s oldest winery showed its skill and delivered the knockout blow with its robust white from its 75 year old vines.

    Round 3 – Pinot Grigio
    Italy’s reliance on its past glories and scores of fans was laid bare by the sensational arrival of Kiwi newcomer Matahiwi Estate. This punchy upstart from the North Island came flying out of its corner, and made swift work of the Venezia Giullia Feather weight, who quickly threw in the towel. Possible mis-match with the Mount Hector weighing in at £25.

    Round 4 – Pinot Noir
    The gloves were off when Albert Bichot’s Chorey Les Beaunes from Burgundy went head to head with Alistair Scott’s second fighter of the night from New Zealand’s Mount Hector camp. These seasoned campaigners went the full distance in this closely fought duel. Power, backbone and finish were matched pound for pound, and the decision went to the All Black on points.

    Round 5 – Cabernet Sauvignon.
    The final gladiatorial encounter of the evening was between two heavy weights from France and Chile. Chateau Haut Beausejour from Bordeaux’s left bank flexed its muscles whilst Aves del Sur’s Gran Reserva used its stamina and backbone to stay of the ropes and keep its French opponent guessing. In the dying seconds , the Chilean powerhouse used its full weight to see off the Bordeaux brawler.
    It was a fast paced and raucous pugilistic soiree, with all guests backing their favourites, though no unanimous decision was made.

    Our next oenological evening will be held on the 16th October and will feature wines from the “Beautiful South”. A handpicked selection of the Southern Hemisphere’s most iconic wines. Box clever and book early!

    Our Own Brew!

    Fancy a pint? Well of course you do! We're particularly pleased to let you know that we have created our own ale to perfectly embody Pointing Dog! We've named our special brew 'Doggie Style' (Naturally) Cue hearty chuckles at the bar – don't worry this isn't a wind up!
    What to expect? Well perfection in a pint. It is golden brown in hue, light, refreshing on the palate. It is a fruity ale with nutty overtones created by a fusion of six different European malts and two southern hemisphere hops, Nelson Sauvignon from New Zealand and Galaxy from Australia.
    The whole experience is a voyage of exquisite discovery and we know you're going to like it very much indeed

    Our brew is a collaboration between Pointing Dog and Worth Brewing of Poynton Cheshire. We've been brewing, tasting, brewing (hic) for months to hit upon the perfect pint for you – and we're happy to say Ta Da! Here it is... Enjoy it folks – this is special stuff!

    It's available in Pointing Dog The Original (Cheadle Hulme) for now – so well worth a trip to sample our liquid gold – but we'll let you know when you can get it from your local Pointing Dog & Duck in Bakewell and Pointing Dog Clubhouse, Sheffield  as well!

    Wine Club Revealed!

    It was a full house for last Thursday’s Italian Wine Dinner. Pointing Dog chefs had worked hard in putting an epicurean selection together which showcased some of Italy’s best regional dishes whilst resident wine expert Oliver Haussels from C&O Wines was on hand to talk through the wines which had been carefully chosen to pair with the courses. As always spirited regulars kept him on his toes with plenty of questions!

    We were also delighted to welcome Carlo and Giovanni Batistella owners and wine makers of our own House Prosecco. We have always been proud of our Prosecco which unlike the majority is hand harvested, and comes from vines nestled in the hills around Conegliano and Valdobbiadene renown for the Prosecco’s finest wines.

    The Prosecco Spumante, Vignadoro was the natural choice to kick start the festivities. Its delicate apricot and peach palate with a zesty finish was the perfect accompaniment to a sharing Antipasti platter which included fire roasted red peppers and bocconcini.

    We then moved onto a crisp Gavi di Gavi , from award winning wine maker Guido Natalino. It was a delightful mouthful of melon and delicate hazelnut. Chef had chosen Genoese cioppino, a fish soup infused with coriander and tomato which brought out the lime backbone in this silky white.

    The first red of the evening was a Dolcetto d’Ovado from the same gifted winemaker Guido Natalino, a medium bodied spiced red with elegant crushed fruits of the forest. This was served with Pasta con funghi e tartufo, whose truffle and mushroom combo was divine.

    The blockbuster wine of the evening was the Amarone della Valpolicella, Corte Vaona. Weighing in at a hefty 15.5% this muscular red also exuded a lingering elegance, in part due to the Ripasso method of drying the grapes. It met its equally robust match in the braised beef ( Stracotto al vino rosso )

    This lively evening was rounded off with a delightful medium sweet Moscato d’Asti. A fun and friendly white with a light fizz. A lighter dessert wine like this needed a lighter dessert which chef readily provided with a refreshing Lemon Mascarpone.

    Our next evening of great food , fab wines and raucousness will be the 12th June when we’ll be pitting New World Wines versus Old World and you the audience can decide…

    Fab service, gorgeous food could not fault it . Seating was great , candles and decor very contemporary. Recommend the root vegetables and the sword fish .Sweets tasted fresh and delicious, well worth a visit.

    Superb food, fantastic atmosphere. Great night out for my birthday, all the meals were lovely. Price was excellent as we got the 40% off.

    We have visited here numerous times & never been disappointed - whether for Sunday lunch, a group of friends having a night out, Fathers Day or a quick tea after work, the food is consistently good & the service always very good. The menu is good, the food always delicious - it is rather pricy though as most mains need a side dish which bumps the cost up. To sit in a lovely setting & eat great food though, it is worth paying a bit more than other similar restaurants.

    Wine Club: Bolney Estate Tasting

    We had a great turn out at our Bolney Wine Tasting on Thursday 21st November.

    We were delighted and proud to welcome Winemaker Stuart Barford of Bolney Estate to a chilly Cheadle! They hosted the tasting, talking us through the range of wines.

    40 year old Bolney Estate in Sussex was voted “UK Wine Producer 2012” in the International Wine & Spirit Competition, and the Pointing Dog has been listing their Cuvee Noir since they received this prestigious award. The wines tasted were dominated by their stunning Sparkling wines, which are all made in the traditional method (that used in Champagne) and are aged on the lees to give them intense flavours.

    The wines tasted included; Bolney Bubbly, 2010 Sirrius Rose, 2010 Cuvee Rose, 2009 Blanc de Blancs and ended with their surprisingly powerful red; Lychgate. Our guests were bowled over with the scale of quality and professionalism from an English winery, whose industry suffers from the twee cottage industry image of yester year.

    Pointing Dog is committed to show casing some of the world’s greatest wines, from some of the greatest wineries. In conjunction with our wine importer, we will hosting regular tastings, accompanied by professional commentary. Our next evening will be Italianate on 6th March 2014.

    Great Reviews!

    As the season as well and truly turned... We thought we'd warm the soul with some heart warming comments from recent reviews on Trip Advisor!

    Thanks as ever to everyone who posts reviews – it means so much!

    Family Sunday Lunch

    Visited on Sunday 27th October 2013. There were fourteen of us plus a child. The food was superb and the customer service excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful, and considering how many of us there were we did not have to wait an age for the food. For a big family get-together it was an ideal place...

    Impressive Service Matched by the Food

    The Pointing Dog is well worth a visit.Nice decor, pleasant and efficient staff and the food is of high standard.The menu caters for all and the lunchtime menu offers good value for money.

    Fab food – Great Staff

    The uber glam Tweet came to pay us a visit recently... This is what they had to say – in love and lust...Just how we like it! Fab review! Thank you!

    'The restaurant looks like an old converted barn and is full of snuggly corners, open fires and, for some reason, antlers. We felt right at home and the log burning stove next to us was a very welcome addition seeing us the temperature was in single figures outside.'

    'We went a couple of weeks ago now and I still crave what I had for my main meal, it was the perfect Autumnal dish, all warming, rich and so very tasty. I had the Venison Bourguignon with celeriac mash, I have nothing else to say about it other than you need it in your life. The Man had steak, cooked exactly as he asked and from the mouthful that I stole is everything that you'd expect from a tender fillet steak.'

    'Let me tell you about dessert, as one of my favourite things in the World, dessert is kind of a big deal. I had already fallen in lust with the thought of the Chocolate Cake in a Jar from seeing the image below on the website and it exceeded expectations. The jar was full of a mess of praline, chocolate fudge brownie, chocolate frosting and hazelnuts with fudge sauce and white chocolate ice cream on the side, YUM. It's probably worth the trip out of Manchester for this alone. '

    Review: Coggles

    High end global luxury fashion and lifestyle brand Coggles dropped into Pointing Dog, The Original for a spot of tea last week. Coggles is a premium international fashion retailer home to over 200 men's and women's designer collections from established fashion houses, emerging designers and rare international labels. At Coggles you can also find a carefully curated LIFE section that contains the best from Music, Books, Bikes, Vintage and Home, as well as the UK's largest street style archive with new shots added weekly from London and other European fashion week cities. So we were delighted when they picked Pointing Dog to feature in their top hits of recommendations. Here are extracts from their review... 'Only a stones throw away from Manchester, Pointing Dog in Cheadle Hulme offers a little slice of the country in an urban setting. Playing on the seasonality of the British harvest, Pointing Dog creates a winning combination of locally sourced ingredients and modern dining ensuring only the finest food graces their tables.' 'If you're a fan of comfort food, Pointing Dog is the perfect place for you. The interior is a maze of hidden corners and snugs with wood burning stoves and coal fires to keep you cosy throughout the evening. Reminiscent of a hunting lodge, the walls are studded with antlers and images of dogs are dotted around the restaurant and lounge area.' 'The staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the ingredients, they offered extra details about the source and flavour to aid us in our choices and, as promised, our glasses were never empty or at least always half full.' 'Definitely one to visit if you're in the mood for some comfort food this Winter.' With thanks to Clare Potts – read the full review HERE

    We've been here since 2011 and we're proud to make the most of our position in spectacular Cheshire and beautifully connected to Manchester – which means we can lavish you in the best our lands, farmers and producers have to offer with influences of global and inspiration.

    Living Edge Magazine Say...

    We are delighted to be in the October issue of Living Edge Magazine. We are their top recommendation for lunch! This is what they say! 'Head over to Pointing Dog on Grove Lane for a delicious lunch – perhaps from the daily menu, featuring a great selection of seasonal produce and Pointing Dog favourites.'


    They also advise to call in for a drink around 6pm to 'relax and unwind over a drink' You can of course come in for lunch as Living Edge recommend which is naturally a fabulous thing to do – and enjoy 2 courses for £13.95 or 3 courses for £17.95. Perfection! 

    Check out our Daily Menu.
