Hidden gem

This little pub could not be in a better location. High above the hills the views are fantastic and a welcome retreat for walkers. Food wise slightly mixed views, the first time we went had a fantastic meal and the portions if you have a healthy appetite were enormous. Second time we went it was... read more

We called for lunch after walking around Macclesfield Forest. As it was a nice day we sat around back in the 'new' section which provided a great view of the Chesire countryside (this being a relative 'high spot' in Chesire!). Warning to the wise it is a little exposed so can get windy making eating out something of a challenge.... More

We went here to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. I rang ahead and booked a table and was given one right in front of the large window in the dining area, so we had a magnificent view over the Cheshire Plain and surrounding hills. The food was very nice and yes it was a little more on the pricey end of... More

Having been a frequent visitor to the Hanging Gate since I passed my driving test in 1976, it still is a wonderful pub with excellent food, good ale and wines and splendid views. It may have had different custodians over the years but I for one will always return to what is, after all, a pub that is dear to... More

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.
