The hanging gate staff are very friendly, welcome you into the pub & can't do enough for you. It's a relatively new pub to me, happened to stumble on it on one of my many road trips with a local classic car club. Also ate here for the first time a few Sundays ago, ordered a meal around 10minutes after... More

Been coming here for years. It is set in the most incredible place overlooking endless green, you can even see as far as liverpool on a clear day. Went today for lunch with friends, and was thoroughly disappointed. It has recently come under new management as I was to find out. We all ordered food about 20 minutes into arriving... More

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

Dropped in on the off chance and was met with a really friendly welcome, tried a pint of NZ beer which was a delight, unfortunately we missed lunch but were offered a panini for less than £2.00 which was lovely, complete with a salad served outside overlooking the countryside it was a great way to start our anniversary.

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
