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

We decided to try the pub for dinner after stopping on several occasions whilst out walking. Great atmosphere to the place with roaring log fires, low beams, makes the place nice and cosy. 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.

We went to The Hanging Gate Inn today and had an amazing meal. There was a great choice of meals on the menu, something to appeal to everyone in the party. The mains were hot, plentiful and cooked as we requested (steak). The desserts were to die for but we struggled to finish them because of the generous portions served.... More

Second visit to this lovely pub, hoped to see the views over Cheshire but misty! I'd had the vegetarian option on my last visit so asked if they could prepare something else - an excellent meal and beautifully presented.

It's been over 15 years since I last ate here, much has changed, not all for the good. The chef is great, my rabbit and hock ham pie was divine, my partner's long horn beef roast dinner was delicious and both good value. Great location, make sure you dine in the "restaurant" to see the panoramic views of the area.... More
