I can't rave about The Fountain Inn enough. My room was very comfortable and recently decorated, the surroundings are beautiful and the food was out of this world. I'm vegan and had warned them prior to my arrival and the owners and chef made sure there was not only something I could eat but that there was a selection too....

For a random pub we found in the middle of nowhere we were so so pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of the food! The service was good, we were a big group of 12 but still got our food quite quickly.

We ate here twice while camping nearby. Thrilled to find somewhere we could eat with our dog and that had plenty of veggie options for us and the children. Food was amazing value, huge portions and reasonably priced. Really helpful staff too. We'll be back!

Fantastic food, reasonably priced and friendly staff. Book early for a Sunday roast. Highy recommend this pub for locals and tourists alike. Pub also offers accommodation and hostel so ideal for cheap stays for singles or groups of bikers or walkers.

Visited with family today for afternoon carvery. Food lovely, staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit. Can't comment on the rooms there as we only went for lunch. It is clearly a popular place. Good for children as there is a garden and a little play area. Dogs allowed too

What can I say other than you have just got to go here. More so if you are wanting to holiday with your dog (totally doggy friendly). The inn itself is very well maintained, everywhere clean and tidy, the bar well stocked and the food is excellent and plenty of it. The owners and staff are so welcoming and obliging....

We called in when passing on a Wednesday night. At 1930 we got the last available table for 2. The service was excellent and the food far surpassed typical pub grub. Michele took time to show us the accomodation, which looked good. Definitely a hidden gem. We will be returning.

We have stayed before and love the relaxed atmosphere of the forest,limited mobile and wifi coverage,not a problem (the cloud was available in the bar if we needed to keep in touch with family). The refurbishment is excellent,Alan has worked hard and produced an excellent history of the inn I found this really interesting. We travelled far and wide exploring...
