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 the show. Some of the plates wernt to my taste but that's the point, Tuesdays... More

We had a terrific evening at the Hanging Gate Inn, Sutton. 20 of us returned from a twelve mile walk around Sutton, in the pouring rain, to be met at the Inn with roaring fires and a very warm welcome. This was an event we had organised in advance. Liz Kellett, who runs the Inn, had organised the evening with... More

-Great location, with spectacular views over the Cheshire Plain- making The hanging Gate perfect for an early doors drink on the decking or to watch the sun set if your more romantically inclined! -A gorgeous open fire in the snug bar area makes this place very homely and welcoming. -The lady who runs the place couldn't do enough for my...

This place is just unique. The spot is idilic yet close to Macclesfield town centre - view is pretty unbeatable, both from the sunny terrace outside and from inside dining room. The new owners are trying to create something really special and it's exciting! We tried the 'pay what you think, no menu Tuesday' which I would recommend! But also... More

Didn't get to eat here as we just called in and it was fully booked. Nice atmosphere with an open fire and cosy feel. Took a look at the menu and we will be back! I recommend you book in advance, especially if you want a table with a view, which is magnificent.

Wonderful view over the Cheshire Plain to Jodrell Bank. We chose the whole-table 5 course tasting menu at lunch since the one-page menu offered was a little sparse (less than on the website). Slightly more food than we would have liked but everything was expertly prepared and presented. Beer and wines both good. Very friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere.... More

We called a week ahead to reserve a table for my birthday meal......advisable as the popularity of this place seems to be growing, and for good reason. Our daughter is vegan and her requirements were fully met, and some! My better half had the Parma ham spinach and butternut squash followed by a trio of roast meats with sticky toffee... More

We called in on Saturday lunchtime quite by chance. (Our usual venu was fully booked for an occasion.) We had the most delicious food and beer all served with a smile. The views from the dining room are spectacular! We sat in the bar with our dog,Archie, whose sole mission was to keep an eye on the landlady....and the chance... 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.
