New Moon Pub Company opens third venue in 12 months

The New Moon Pub Company, based in Knutsford, Cheshire, is set to open its third venue in 12 months, after it acquired the Hanging Gate in Weaverham, near Northwich.

The company, co-owned by David Mooney and Paul Newman, already owns the Lord Binning in Kelsall, where Mooney is chef-patron, and the Old Sessions House in Knutsford, which is due to open in early September.

Mooney said: "We are diligent about using premium-quality produce and, where possible, source products locally, as there are so many wonderful producers on our doorstep… Willington Farm Apple Juice and Delamere Goats Cheese to name two."

Newman, formerly a founder and director at Living Ventures, said: "We're excited to bring our elite brand of informal fine dining to the Northwich area. We're passionate about what we do and the experience that we are able to offer to all of our customers and we can't wait to open the doors to the new Hanging Gate experience."

The company will spend £250,000 refurbishing the new venue, which is set to open in December. It plans a fourth site soon.
