Exterior of Fence Gate

The Fence Gate is an historic, award winning 18th century inn nestled between Pendle’s most idyllic countryside set back in the village of Fence just off the A6068.


With heated table parasols and large marquee The Fence Gate is accepting bookings and walk in's for both drinks or dining from their brand new menu.

Their menus offer the perfect combination of traditional classics, chef specials, and eclectic mix of modern British dishes, fused with influences from around the world.

Within the brasserie stands a custom-built ageing unit, housing the 35-day dry aged ribs of beef, and a gin bar – a perfect place to start your evening with an aperitif.

The restaurant’s décor varies throughout the dining area giving it a unique identity – while retaining an atmosphere of casual dining.

‘The Still’, with its unusual vaulted brick ceiling, is home to a selection of extensive and rare gins, and offers private dining for up to 14 guests.

The upper level of the brasserie, with its shooting theme, houses a further assortment of rare gins.

The main bar has a real country pub ambience, with it spaciousness layout, stone floors, hand-warming wood burning stove and smaller more intimate seating areas.

The Fence Gate Inn and the Fence Gate Lodge is the ideal place to meet up and dine with friends and family, hold a celebration or just sit and relax with a drink in front of the open fire.

It’s the perfect venue for weddings, christenings and corporate events or for simply catching up with friends over a meal or enjoying a luxury stay.

The 18th century inn has a traditional bar serving real ales, wines and spirits, a brasserie and pub dining area.

The three private function rooms are suitable for any event, celebration or milestone.

Their luxurious 24-bedroom Fence Gate Lodge provides guests with undeniably grand luxury accommodation and facilities.
