Fence Gate Inn

Wheatley Lane Road, Fence, Burnley (Nr), Lancashire, BB12 9EE
A large pub, serving both bar food and more elaborate meals, in their Topiary Brasserie.

Owned by ex-butcher, Kevin Berkins, they are justifiably well-known for their sausages (which have their own section on the menu) - often including one made with black pudding, organic pork and leeks.

The style of the food on offer, travels the world, with starters such as 'Asian Platter - beef samosa, potato & spinach pakora & tandoori chicken with mini puppodoms'; 'Warm Salad of Crispy Duck'; 'Wild Mushroom Risotto' and 'Queenie Scallops - with mushroom, bacon & parsley sauce and Parmesan crisp' setting the style.

Perhaps to be followed by 'Fish Pie'; 'Beef Bourguignon'; 'Crispy Middle White Belly Pork' or a Burger or Steak from the Grill.

Maybe finish with 'Bread & Butter Pudding'; 'Tiramisu' or an Artisan Cheese Slate.

We have heard of diners being over-hurried when finishing their meal - and we would be glad to hear of any complaints of this kind; but by and large, the Fence gets our vote.
