Restaurant description

A grand gastropub on the outskirts of Manchester, Pointing Dog The Original serves modern dishes and an extensive drinks menu in a setting that blends contemporary design with quintessentially British comfort. Settle back in front of the inviting hearth and crackling wood burner, or sit up at the bar with its galvanised light fittings for a craft beer or classic cocktail.

The Pointing Dog menu offers a great selection of traditional British pub favourites with gourmet makeovers, as well as crowd-pleasing recipes from all over the world. 28-day aged steaks are served with triple-cooked chips and truffle butter, while the lamb shoulder shepherd's pie comes with Butler's Mature Cheddar mash. For those after a lighter meal, there are rustic baguettes, while generous Sunday roasts are a popular draw at the weekend.

Classic afternoon teas are also served at Pointing Dog The Original in Stockport, with optional glasses of sparkling. The bar also serves up an extensive wine, and all kinds of craft beers.

A popular gastropub for all-day dining through to casual drinks, Pointing Dog The Original is a 4-minute drive from Cheadle Hulme Rail Station.

    Well cooked food. Especially loved the chicken starter. Staff were friendly, organised and efficient. Lovely and peaceful.

    One starter served raw. Another starter featuring mozzarella arrived without... Mozzarella! The dishes did not arrive grouped together. But with intervals. Observed mixed household groups dining not within covid rules

    It was okay - clearly staff were stretched as service and attention were very poor, food was okay nothing special.

    Food OK but had much better elsewhere locally. Service not great either. We ordered an 8oz steak and received and was charged for a 12oz. Cutlery dropped on floor from another table was not picked up despite waitresses passing by many times. We picked it up ourselves to prevent an accident. Restaurant ambience not great either as it was very noisy and you could not hear other people at your table.

    Lovely restaurant, we sat by the open patio doors and looked out onto the outside dining area. All the necessary Covid safety measures are in place, very impressive as not all restaurants are taking them seriously. Food OK for a pub/restaurant, fillet steak overdone but didn't complain as it was very tasty and we had a full 50% off. The waitress was lovely, very helpful and charming, even though she had to keep a distance from us. A great place for families. Looking forward to going back again soon for lunch when we get a sunny day and can sit outside.
