We went as a group of five & the food was lovely. However, they messed up our bill somehow & put other peoples food & drink on ours. This was sorted but had to go through exactly what food & drinks we had. Staff were all lovely & smiles round. We would go back there.

No problem at all and the steak was perfectly cooked :) My wife had the beef brisket which she enjoyed and we both finished off with a crème brulee each. The... More

We returned to the Fence Gate for dinner after an absence of several years and, as usual, the car park was packed. Not quite sure why this place is so popular but clearly lots of people like it. Sadly, we were a little disappointed. The food was pretty average and the service was distinctly sniffy and unsmiling from the waiter... More

This place used to be my worst nightmare... Too busy, badly laid out, sweltering hot, expensive & taking over 20 minutes to get served cos the locals all got served first... So, why go?? Well, we stopped going... Until this weekend... So pleasantly surprised. It's still pricey, but it's lighter, brighter, more spacious & seemed calmer. Getting served (even getting... More

Vegetarians who are diary free will also struggle!! It's a meat eaters paradise and a carb loaded menu!! The restaurant is delightful the decor very classy, and they have absolutely loads of...

We have visited the Fence Gate a few times every year over the last 10 years or so. The most impressive feature of this establishment has been its consistency. We have eaten at lunch and dinner times, in the bar as well as in the brasserie. The food has been consistently good and so has the service, despite the many... More
