We came here to celebrate my Father's 91st birthday and were delighted with everything. Every plate of food we had was beautifully cooked and tasted great. The women serving us looked after us very well and were very friendly. Look forward to returning.

A young crowd run this little public house and they do a fine job. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is charming. Well worth a visit highly recommended.

My friend and I had Saturday lunch here today. It was beautiful. Rachel the dark haired waitress recommended a white port with feverfew tonic. It was very refreshing. We both had the lamb faggots which were a sort of lamb tartar in a cooked shell....More

The white swan at Fence is a traditional local pub that just happens to serve food, real ales & wines so fine that you will probably do a little dance of delight when you sample them. Backed by Timothy Taylors, fronted by team Turners with cellar queens Liv & Lou plus the boy wonder Tom Parker in the kitchen, we've got a veritable dream team going on. It will be love at first sight, smell & savour.
