The views are astonishing

Although the pub had closed when we reached it (3 pm on a Thursday), we talked for ages with the landlord outside. Nice to see someone prepared to be flexible with visitors...trying to run a business as a service as well as for profit. We will be back.

We stayed here for the second time last night. First time was in Jan 2015 when we were allowed to park out Motorhome overnight in the car park and so we came back for a second visit. The food was really good on all three occasions we had a meal and the Hydes Original bitter was pretty good too. The... More

I have always loved this pub but I had taken it off my faves list as it had been taken over, and you just never know... I went there yesterday with a friend and we were really happy with the welcome (very friendly new landlord, Steve, who chats and informs as appropriate but doesn't try and take over!). The beers...

Tried to visit this pub on Saturday evening but found a "closed for private party" sign. Tried to visit again today, for lunch, and the door was locked. No signs either. Very disappointed.

We are sorry that you have been unable to visit, however you have failed to mention that we were so busy on Saturday night that it would have been simply impossible to park any further cars or indeed physically fit any further people inside what is a relatively small pub without it posing a safety risk. With regards to yesterday... More

After having a slightly disappointing first visit, we were invited back by one of the owners Sarah and she made sure everything was perfect. Beautiful starters, steaks for mains and nothing was too much trouble. We will be returning for sure.

This has been a pub that me and my family have been going to for decades, and for me, now living abroad, it always brings back great memories to be in the area. When it was suggested that we go to the Hanging Gate for lunch on Easter Monday we decided to call ahead to order our food so it... More

First visit to this pub and probably the last. Good points... Fantastic view, lovely clean fresh smelling toilets and friendly staff. Bad points.... Waited hour and half from point of ordering to actually receiving food. Not that impressed with the food when it came. I had beef bourginon which did not have much beef and the mash on the side...

Things went down hill once we tried to order drinks, glass shelves were empty & the place looked as if they had been busy. Ordered Guinness, only... More
