“Refreshing mid walk”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We stopped here for coffee and tea (although one of our group tried the fine ale) whilst on a 12 mile walk. Very good service and the meals looked and smelt very very tempting ... if only we had had the time!

“What a Spot!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have visited the Hanging Gate many times (including yesterday!). It seems to get better and better. My favourite thing ... no, that is impossible ... my favourite things are the view, the excellent real ale, the mouth-watering steak ciabatta and the great and welcoming service. I have tried several dishes from the menu and never been disappointed. At first I thought it a little pricey, but came to realise that the quality is so worth every penny. I sat outside last evening and watched the sun set over the Cheshire Plain and Joderell Bank; it was spectacular.

Was biking in a group and stopped here. Had one of the best burgers i've ever had, really tender beef. Friendly service and a great view from the outside barbecue tables...recommended!

“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We've been a few times - very cosy atmosphere, with log fires etc. food is very tasty. Great views of the cheshire plain outside. £10 in a taxi from Macclesfield, if you fancy leaving the car and sinking an extra 7 - 8 pints than you planned for.

“Good food but expensive, beware of the land lady.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We have been to the hanging gate pub a few times, the food is always good, if a bit expensive i had the sunday dinner with beef it was £15 which is to expensive it was lovely but not enough pototoes or veg, the land lady can be a bit brash, at one meal she complained about our coats looking untidy on the back of the chairs,and tried to take them away to hang up. The toilets arent very clean either.
