    • 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 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.

    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!

    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
