We love to find amazing venues to socialise with family and friends in East Lancashire with our 'Pub of the Week' feature.

This week, we have chosen a Michelin Star eatery that serves great food and great wine in Burnley.

The White Swan in Fence is a small lively local pub that stocks Timothy Taylors award winning real ales.

Name of the pub: White Swan at Fence

Address of the pub: 300 Wheatley Ln Rd, Fence, Burnley, BB12 9QA

Chef Tom Parker, who is based at the pub, is rapidly gaining a deserved reputation for 'outstanding' food.

Awards for the White Swan include a Michelin Star and 3 AA rosettes, whilst The Good Pub Guide and Casque Mark also recognises the quality of real ale that is being served.   

Lancashire Telegraph:

Cask ales, a robust wine list and elevated comfort fare on told to be on offer in 'quaint quarters' with a fireplace.

Food items on the menu include Yorkshire chicken, wild Morecambe Bay seabass, and their cheeseboard is believed to be 'very popular'.

Lancashire Telegraph:

The White Swan's website says: "For us, it's about just doing everything as well as we can,  sending out the best food,  pouring the finest drinks, making people feel at home and ultimately sending you away as happy as we can.

"As the only Timothy Taylors pub in Lancashire, a brewery founded on the principle of never accepting second best, our focus is on flavour.

"With our small seasonal set menu you know immediately that the ingredients are fresh and well chosen.

"Our set menu changes regularly and it takes a great deal of knowledge, experience and focus to create food that while delighting in its simplicity, is also highly accomplished and beautifully done."

The pub, formerly known as 'The Mucky Duck', remains a traditional place where you’re guaranteed a laid-back atmosphere and a good pint.

Lancashire Telegraph:

The Michelin's Guide website says: "The concise menu allows the kitchen to concentrate on producing good value cooking from small batches of locally sourced produce.

"Dishes might appear simple at first, but there's impressive depth of flavour and some playful elements hidden within.

"The cheeseboard with homemade crackers and English truffle honey is a must, and there are some interesting wines available by the glass."
