Multi-award-winning venue below Pendle Hill with brasserie, bar and function suites.

Nestled below Pendle Hill and surrounded by beautiful countryside, The Fence Gate dates back to the 17th century. Over the years it was home to local squires and a prominent cotton merchant until in 1982 the current owners converted it into an inn. Today with its public bar, modern brasserie and function suites, The Fence Gate is firmly established as one of the area’s leading multi-purpose hospitality destinations, catering for everything from a quiet pint or romantic meal to weddings and charity balls. The brasserie’s modern British menu draws on influences from around the world and is open for lunch and dinner every day. The traditional bar has a welcoming log fire in winter and comfy sofas and is a great place to relax with a glass of wine, a pint of Cask Marque-accredited real ale or a gin from one of the largest collections in the world. The main function suite – the Cromdale Room – has its own dancefloor and can seat up to 240 whilst for smaller events there is a choice of The Still and the stunning new Bar 1782. Regular tribute nights are held throughout the year and all kinds of function can be catered for including weddings and conferences. The Eagle at Barrow is a sister pub.

The Fence Gate Inn has a refurbishment and is looking fantastic. Definitely my venue of choice in the Burnley area. Mrs W Excellent food good service and probably one of the best in the area along with it's sister hotel, The Eagle at Barrow. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone! Graham Monk Went to the restaurant after recommendation from a friend, food was excellent, extensive wine list, service was excellent and was busy with a good atmosphere for a Tuesday evening. Would recommend to anyone and will certainly be visiting again! Menu has just been changed (July 09) and prices lowered slightly... more than worth the drive out...... Cbrierley After booking a table on a sunday evening, and arriving a little bit early for drinks. we found they had no knowledge of our reservation. Service from the floor staff seemed a little rushed, dirty linen on the table was slightly off putting, However. we ordered and found that the food was absolutely great. Beautifully presented, wonderful flavours and perfect wine. All in all, a lovely meal. After been over charged!! front of house could maybe do with a refresher course on customer service. But kitchen was bob on!! Parker I went to the Restaurant in a party of nine on Sunday 28th October. We arrived late not our fault but never the less there was no problem with the booking. We had a lovely meal in very pleasant surroundings and nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Would recommend Fence Gate Inn to anybody Well Done. Wendy
