A Little Gem

Under new management this is a must place to visit. We had crispy duck with salad followed by lamb shoulder (melt in the mouth) and ham, egg and chips, which were real chips. My husband then had the poached pears and declared them the best he had ever tasted. This place is worth braving the snow... read more

Spoke to chef night before booking for dietary requirements and she was very helpful, had to ask waiting staff a few times for things on the day however. Steak and mushroom pie was absolutely beautiful, melt in the mouth with full homemade pastry case, but vegetable lasagne had no tomato sauce and a crunchy cheese crust rather than creamy bechemal...

Myself and three friends went here on a Thursday evening quite open minded after reading such mixed reviews. Although we were the only people in ( was a very wet Thursday evening) the service was quick, very friendly. They offer a weekday early dinner menu that's great value for money. We had soup and the mushrooms to start couldn't fault,... More

I've spent 61 Christmas Days in this world, but I cannot remember a better Christmas Day moment than when I stepped into the Hanging Gate a few days ago on Christmas morning. After a freezing, exhilarating bike ride to get there, I walked into a place bathed in warmth - not just from the cheerful fire, but from the radiant... More

Having visited for a drink the week before, I took my partner for Sunday lunch after a long, cold and wet walk. The place is lovely and cosy, open fires and friendly staff but unfortunately the food is a let down. We both ordered roasts and my partner couldn't eat his lamb, it had an odd taste and was very...

This Inn has the best views in Cheshire absolutely stunning. They greet you with a very warm welcome. They have a walkers special for those who have healthy appetites and also a varied menu. The food is cooked to a really good pub standard with local made pies. There is also a small portion size meal if desired.

Called at hanging gate today for tea.cold outside so roaring fire was a pleasure to walk into. Little bit limited but when the food was served it was proper nice and the chips were worth the drive by themselves.will be calling again for tea very soon. The only bad point was the price of drinks which was a little pricey.... More

We called here a couple of months ago on a friend’s recommendation and it was probably the best pub food we had ever had in Macclesfield; well-prepared, tasty adult size portions with lots of crisp vegetables. I intended writing a glowing review once I had tried it again. Sadly, the previous tenant has left and the pub is now in... More

My partner and I was slightly disappointed when we found out that The Hanging Gate had been taken over. We like to stop off half way through our walk and always enjoyed a good meal. Well I needn't of worried. The land lord has done a great job of making the pub feel warm and welcoming. Even the real fire... More
