Heard about the Friday fish and chip night, thought we would give it a try, when we arrived the restaurant was full of dinners both on fish and chips and what we had found to be the fantastic early bird menu. Since we were last there the whole of the interior has been refurbished and looks outstanding. My friends sampled...

Went a few weeks ago with some friends who go there often and was really impressed. So much so that my husband and I took my mum and dad last week for an early mothers day treat. They too were very impressed. Food was outstanding, service good, nice hand pulled ale's and both food and drink are very reasonably priced....

I seriously cannot understand any bad reviews about this place, especially about the landlord. We did the booze and snooze a few years ago and had a great time, although the landlord was a bit strange back then. When we arrived this time the place has been done up and it has a new landlord (David) who seems like a...

Haven’t been to the Fountain for a couple of years but visited last night with family and really enjoyed ourselves. The wait for food was quite lengthy (over an hour) but worth it and extremely good value when it arrived (Tuesday early bird menu) and to be fair the place was packed to the rafters. Very challenging to cope with...

This hostelry is quite close to home, so ideal if you don't want to cook some nights. Excellent value if you're eating early but very good value anyhow. At a time when restaurants are getting too clever and, it has to be said, failing to deliver in many areas, it is reassuring that The Fountain keeps it relatively simple and...

Me and my partner went here to eat, the food was very good and the service was also good and prompt, one little moan my partner ordered morrocan lamb but was served minted lamb, an error by the manager as he failed to change the menu that day.

It’s a long time since we were at The Fountain and having seen the local adverts we decided to give it a go for an evening meal. The inside may have been given a lick of paint but the table and chairs are still the same. We ordered two steak pies, what a disappointment. The meat in the pie was...
