We came here as a friend had been many moons ago and found the food to be hearty pub fare in lovely surroundings, so it was recommended to us. On arrival we were seated in the restaurant section of the pub, which had lovely views over the valley, and the menu looked very appealing. But unfortunately thats where it ended.... More

The Hanging Gate Inn team welcomed us in a very friendly and warm way. The first impression is that of arriving at a typical rural English pub with cosy seating corners and blazing fireplaces (warming on a rainy day like we had). When following the stairs down to the restaurant annex you'll be rewarded with the most stunning views as... More

We took some friends visiting us from Sri Lanka who wanted to taste "real" English Pub food after a brisk and scenic walk which started at Leather's Smithy pub in Macclesfield. We worked up a good appetite by taking a longer route and went to the Hanging Gate Pub ready to devour a good meal and we were not disappointed.... More

This pub is recently under new ownership and everyone went out of their way to accommodate us and make for a terrific dining experience. The atmosphere is wonderful with breathtaking views, the food is excellent. I have celiacs disease and cannot eat anything with gluten. They specially prepared a mushroom soup and special sauces and breads for me. I had... More

Wonderful food with generous portions and a good a selection and also reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful however, the service was slow and there was a long wait between courses. These may just be 'teething problems ' as I believe it has recently come under new management. The views are fantastic over the Cheshire countryside and the... More

Our table for food was overlooking superb views of the cheshire countryside, you can see for miles. The food was superb, great value for money with very... More

New landlord recently taken over. He's putting a lot into it and is a personable, friendly chap. He cares about the pub, and really wants it to be something special. Food and drinks are very reasonably priced, without compromising on quality. It is fast becoming a new, regular haunt of mine, and I'm really enjoying bringing friends to see it.... More

A friend & I visited this pub during a long walk. The staff were so friendly, the meal-divine and very reasonably priced. The views from the Inn are superb, overlooking the rolling Cheshire countryside.
