The White Swan

Nestled in the Pendle countryside, the White Swan at Fence can be found on Wheatley Lane Road, just off the Padiham bypass (A6068) outside Burnley.

Whilst you may simply pop in for some drinks after a country walk, you do not want to miss the fine food this Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant has to offer. With no standard menus in sight, the daily changing menu details a selection of finely crafted dishes from locally sourced produce.

The traditional pub décor boasts a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere and serves a great selection of Timothy Taylor cask ales.

Head Chef Tom Parker was trained at Michelin-starred Northcote, just 10 miles down the road and brings with him a passion for good British food, only cooking with the finest seasonal ingredients available on a daily basis from local suppliers. With top food critics saying that Tom’s passion is evident in his food, his mouthwatering dishes are bound to satisfy your taste buds.

Examples of dishes include; pig’s head nuggets to start, with mains such as smoked eel with charred kale, parsnip puree and a rich veal jus, guinea fowl with baked celeriac, wild mushrooms and lovage, cottage of oxtail pie using our very popular smoked mashed potatoes, sea bass with minted new potatoes and crushed peas and toad in the hole with venison sausages.

Sweet tooth? Their daily desserts and selection of cheeses will not disappoint.

If you’re looking for a blend of traditional country pub with a fine dining experience, the White Swan at Fence offers a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff, local cask ales and fantastic food. That coupled with its rural location and open roaring fires, means it’s the perfect place to drink and dine.
