Pointing dog had been recommended to us by friends - it was expensive on the menu but we wanted a treat so booked in today. The starters were very average - I had garlic mushrooms on a muffin - it had no taste at all....More

Popped into the pointing dog as I was in the area. Looked a welcoming place plus nice decor and friendly staff. OK I thought looks a nice spot for a meal. The ham hoc with sourdough bread and peas looked nice, but undressed salad, tasteless...More

We have visited the pointing dog a couple of times now as it is local to us. The food choices aren't great and the meals are pretty standard for the prices. It's a shame as the staff are lovely and the decor is stylish but...More
