Visited The Hanging Gate on Sunday Aug 14th. Food was ok. Atmosphere was worse than a mortuary waiting room ! Both bar tenders ( one young girl one young boy ) had zero personality. We were asked if we would like a dessert and after looking at the menu we decided not too. We asked for the bill and the... More

Title of review is self explanatory, had a wonderful Ham hock and black pudding starter and squid for my main course which was delicious. My fiancé had lamb chop which was also very good indeed. We shall definitely return. Many thanks

I useto regularly eat at the hanging gate as I lived not to far away, even though I have moved I still like to go as often as possible and have introduced my other half and his family to this briliant place. I have been a few times at Christmas and seen the decorations which just blow you away. The... More

We visited on a early Saturday evening, we sat outside before our meal and the views are fantastic. Inside we sat over looking these views and the food matched them, fantastic, we had the liver parfait for starters followed by the lamb, pink and juicy, and the beef rib which fell off the bone. I cannot recommend this place highly... More

7 of us booked a table to eat dinner on a Thursday evening. The venue was quiet and for June a cold wet evening. We all had starters which were reasonably tasty but some of the accompaniments and presentation was lack lustre. Main course, various. I had the duck which had a strange texture and the waffles were very salty.... More

Excellent Xmas party for which we booked the whole lower room. Food well presented from an interesting menu. Staff attentive, enthusiastic and keen to make the event a success from first phone call to our departure. Food ordered in advance which was reasonable given the large party size. Thank you all...we will certainly organise further group events with you.

Lovely small lunch menu, hubby had belly pork starter and we both chose a lamb main which were cooked and presented beautifully. Young landlord is a delight and obviously loves his job. There is always good beer on tap if you're an ale drinker. The pub has several rooms so you can be cozy in the snug or more formal... More
