Just to say how much we all enjoyed our meal at the Hanging Gate on Saturday night. The food was gorgeous and it was a really nice atmosphere too. I think we all agreed that we would very much like to come back again!

A lovely place with a great view looking towards Wales. Food was tasty and staff were friendly. I would imagine you need to book for a Sunday lunch as it was full but well worth visiting if you want a walk or just food.

I would argue that this pub has one of the best views of any place I've visited. In fact I'd challenge anyone on TripAdvisor to find a better one. The pub and restaurant is small and personal. So that can be good or bad. My...More

We were really pleased to find extra nappies, nappy wipes and nappy bags in the changing room here, along with a toy to keep your little one entertained. Small things like this can make a really big difference when you're eating out with a baby....More

We took some family members for the 5 course taster menu and it was excellent. Great food and wine flight, relaxed atmosphere with friendly service and a magnificent view. For a small pub and limited team this place is exceptional. Highly recommended.

Expensive Sunday lunch with a party - not inspirational...food did not appear to have been cooked to order more assembled. No options for children. Lack of atmosphere in dining room and waiting staff poor. Other than the magnificent view, nothing to recommend.More

Hello, It's such a shame for us to read this review. I can honestly assure you that every single item on our menu (all of our menus) is cooked to order when the check is taken to the kitchen. Our starters range between £5/8 mains...More
