“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Was pleasantly surprised when eating here had heard mixed reviews and that it could be pricey - however really good food - slightly pricey but not overly so! Had great relaxing meal with friends - would go back again.

“High standard maintained”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Had lunch at the Fence Gate last week - this was by no means our first visit and it was good to see that the high standard of food and service is still a priority here. The deliberately "quirky" lunch menu offers many very interesting choices and the food is presented in an interesting way. The excellent reputation locally is fully deserved.

“Good food,shame about the service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This was an anniversary celebratory even.ing out. Our table was booked for,7.15pm we arrived early and were shown to,our table. The drinks and starter were served shortly afterwards. The main course was served after a short wait then we had to wait over an hour for the dessert to be served, the waitress apologised for the delay and it was not her fault but we felt that there should have been more staff. When we went to,pay the bill the girl on the cash desk was aware of the delay and agreed that more staff were needed. We did not feel that a tip was earned but felt that the waiting staff missed out because of the delays in the kitchen.

“Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Had a fantastic day at fence gate yesterday, we were celebrating mums 80th birthday and so was quite a large party20 of us!!
Well the staff could not have been more friendly, nothing was too much trouble, they had us all served very easily without stress, and that's some feat with small children around!!! The food was superb and the desserts are "amazing!!!" Can't wait to go back x

“Perfect for a Family get together”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The smells from the kitchen on entering the buzzing atmosphere of The Fence Gate heightened my anticipation of a great night out. After a brief stay in the bar to wait for the rest of our party, we were lead to our large table in the restaurant. From then on the night was perfectly executed. The waiting staff were just attentive enough without being overly pushy, the menu was quite varied in it's culinary repertoire, but really hung together when the varied starters came to the table. Delicious, beautifully cooked food. Well priced for what we had and a great night out.
