Myself and my husband booked a table in the brasserie on a Saturday night. We hadn't visited the pub for many years and had heard good reviews from others. We certainly weren't disappointed. The staff welcomed us warmly and the decor inside the brasserie is lovely. There are plenty of dishes to chose from on the menu and we both... More

We called last night and it was pleasantly busy. We had Bruschetta to share - 3 pieces - it would have been nice to have had the option of a larger portion for 2 to share and pay a bit more. I chose the pheasant which sounded delicious but unfortunately the waitress returned to say it was out of season.... More

My wife had always wanted to go to the fencegate and as we are not far from The Eagle at Barrow which we visit regularly we thought that it's sister restaurant would be just as good, we were disappointed with the Fencegate for a couple of reasons, firstly the service was slow, we had to order our drinks twice and...

Finished work and after shopping decided to go here for tea. We had king prawns and chorizo. Our mains were the braised beef and chicken Kiev, the garlic butter was missing from the Kiev. The food was hot. The place was very busy,we did not have to wait to long for the starter's. An enjoyable visit.

I regularly visit Fence Gate to eat in the bar. The menu is extensive and tempting! (Not fantastic if on a diet!) Service is always great. This place consistently delivers high quality and tasty food. Loads of different gins too!

We went as a group of six and everyone of us finished everything on our plates. A couple of us just had a starter and homemade chips as we were saving ourselves for the sweets but others had a full main meal and still managed! Cleanliness, service and staff were all excellent.
