As it stands today the Fence Gate is a beautifully restored three storey building built towards the end of the 17th Century. It had been a house to local squires until the 1850’s when a wealthy cotton merchant Mr Hartley purchased the property and ran his business from the house. Some thirty years ago the house was purchased from a doctor and his family and converted into a small restaurant.
In 1982 the present owner purchased the property and extensively modernised transforming this beautiful building to an Inn. The addition of two banqueting suites the Cromdale Room and Patio Suite accommodate up to 400 guests, and more recently a modern 104 seater brasserie was added to our comfortable Public Bar.
Today Fence Gate has an enviable reputation for its hospitality, excellent food, fine wines and traditional ales and is also proud to be part of ‘Made in Lancashire’.
