Lovely Food with picturesque views

We popped in on the off chance we could get a table and we were one of the lucky ones yesterday who could without having booked. The staff where enthusiastic and very helpful. We could only choose from the light bites menu so can't comment on the overall menu choice. There were enough choices... read more

Not been here for a few years, but it's clear the new management have changed this pub's fortunes very successfully. A friendly staff team, warm welcome and an excellent meal. The attention to detail and quality of the meal was very impressive. Good real ales and excellent choice of wines to accompany an interesting and attractive menu with a range... More

Visited for lunch to this historic pub. The starter of scallops/black pudding, main course of lamp rump and dessert of frozen chocolate with burnt orange and hazelnuts were of very high quality, beautifully presented. Could have chosen anything from the superb menu. The view from the cosy dining room was fantastic even in the rain! Service was excellent also. Would... More

The food ranks as high as any top restaurant I've had the pleasure to dine in, we went with the in laws and were totally delighted with the quality of food on offer here. The staff were attentive and friendly but it was very unrushed between courses which was just as well because even on a grey, rainy day the... More

We sampled the delights at the Hanging Gate whilst visiting family and enjoyed a great dinner (both meat eaters and vegetarians alike). The limited wine list was the only blemish on the whole experience; service, taste and presentation were all excellent.

We went here for a birthday lunch, and were absolutely blown away by the superb menu. This is outstanding fine dining for only slightly above average prices - well worth the (rather lovely) drive from Manchester. And my husband loved the real ales. Compliments to the chef!

A beautiful spot overlooking the Peak District, absolutely stunning views and amazing food from the new management team. Great little bar upstairs with a lovely fire before you can pop downstairs and enjoy the discussed view. The menu is great with an obviously hugely talented chef. There's a huge outside area too to enjoy. GO!

An amazing and dedicated chef, coupled with a young enthusiastic manager are well on the way to making this the best place in the area. Food is astounding, simply astounding. Beer well-kept, and the views... well they'll never change :)
