In the company of my part lover and full time friend I was guided to the hanging gate Inn, one of many secrets she has kept hidden from me for many years. The staff were refreshingly surly as they wished to close and people had...More

We found that the Sunday lunch menu was very limited and the wine list wasn't offered so we had to ask it! There was only one veggie dish - mushroom risotto. Whoever prepared this dish must have missed school on the how-to-cook-risotto day. It had...More

Gave the no menu Tuesday a go- totally worth it! Earnest the head chef cooks up some incredible and unusual flavour combinations while you feel a million miles away the rest of the world. The views are amazing but the food was the star of...More

We are small country pub with outstanding views across the Cheshire Plain, we serve food of the highest standards under the guidance of acclaimed chef patron Ernst van Zyl who moved into the kitchen permanently at the end of October. We serve light bites 12/2:30 Wednesday - Saturday and a lazy lunch menu same days until 2pm. Friday and Saturday lunch and evenings we also offer a 5 course tasting menu with or without wine flight and Wednesday - Saturday evenings our a la carte menu. Sunday is traditional roasts day with a super choice of dishes cooked to order. Our wine list is wonderful with lots of fabulous wines and we always have our hydes original and a guest beer on draft. We close Monday and Tuesday. Look forward to seeing you soon. THG team.
