There’s nothing better than a hearty, filling pub lunch, especially on a Sunday afternoon. Recently we decided to take a drive out to the Hanging Gate pub in Chapel-en-le-Frith. After hearing terrific reviews about the food – and the portion sizes, we decided to try it out ourselves.
The Hanging Gate pub is located in Chapel, High Peak not far from Glossop, a scenic village – especially on a Spring afternoon. Once we arrived, we got seated right away and handed the menus – I ordered a naughty fruit cider, something I always feel the need to drink when the weather is glorious.
The menu is extensive with many vegetarian choices available which I always find extremely refreshing. Previously when I visit country pubs I’m stuck with one or two option to choose from, the majority of the menus are usually focused on meat meat meat.
It was pointless looking at the menu, I had already checked online and decided on the cheese pie, everyone knows cheese holds the key to my heart, especially paired with chunky chips!
Can we just take a minute to appreciate the size of this piece of pie!
I’m going to put it out there and say it was one of the cheesiest and scrummiest pies I’ve ever had the pleasure of putting in my mouth. I wasn’t able to finish it, but i bloody well tried.
Of course, in typical Alex style, I ordered a dessert regardless of the fact I had to undo my jeans…. ending the day with some waffles, cream and chocolate sauce.
Overall I would fully recommend anyone who likes to consume well over their calorie limit eating homemade food to take a trip to the Hanging Gate in Chapel, I will definitely be returning for another feasting.
This summer I plan on visiting a lot of local restaurants and country pubs on the look out for more tasty, vegetarian dishes, so look out for them, fellow veggy friends.
