Lovely meal. I particularly recommend their Sunday roast! Very pleasant atmosphere with good service and reasonably priced.

Lovely meal, went in mid week with a friend and had the duck risotto which was lovely. Great atmosphere and didn't get rushed off the table once we'd finished eating.

Arrived at 3pm to be told no roast beef. Settled for roast pork, however it wasn't actually roast pork more like pork steaks, a total lack of flavour. Roast potatoes reheated and hard, no stuffing and minimal gravy, we shall definitely not be returning!

Attended a family event here and though the venue itself is nice we were unimpressed with the food and prices in general, consider an 'average' bottle of red wine at £20 rather a rip off, would not rush back here as there are decent restaurants a short drive away in Bramhall with good food and wine at realistic prices that...

My daughter and husband had their wedding reception here . All the staff were very pleasant and good . Must particularly mention Huw the area manager as his expertise was great at assisting the bride and groom in making sure everything go smoothly on the day . Thanks to you all for making the reception go well

Again a delightful visit to the Ponting Dog. Valentine's night menus was running and the Chef delivered very good food on the plate. Service was entertaining and professional delivered by Golda, she was truly a star throughout. Look forward to our next visit.

Came here a few times when it first opened but hadn't been back for quite a while until this weekend when we've been twice in two days. Service was good both times and there's always a lively atmosphere but current menu seems more limited than I remember and my meal on the first night (sardines then harissa chicken) was much...

We rocked up here for Sunday lunch 6 adults, 2 children and 1 baby. Plenty of space and choice on the menu. The duck tacos are a starter must would happily eat them as a larger portion for a main. Staff were friendly and understanding of allergy requirements when asked. Lovely setting for a great catch-up.
