Went for lunch today with our friends, four of us. The atmosphere was cold and unwelcoming.The menu was limited which is OK if it is changed day by day but this was unimaginative and the food reflected that. I first visited this place in 1976...More

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!

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
