I popped in here one warm summer evening. There's a lovely little courtyard / beer garden and they serve decent pub grub.

The menu choices were varied and mouthwatering. 3 of us had the steak and ale pie-really tasty and lovely flavour came though , chunky chips were advertised as gourmet and they definitely were! 1 had...

Absolutely loved our experience here. Saturday shopping with the kids and its like a beautiful friendly oasis here. Outstanding service, great value for money and good fresh food. We sat in the courtyard surrounded by beautiful baskets of flowers. We will be back very soon.

The food was great - a homemade curry with original ingredients and very tasty. The service was friendly and the atmosphere in the pub welcoming. Would happily go there again.

Years ago this pub was the place to be seen, cracking court yard to sit out in in the summer, food was always good... it went down hill for a few years, but it's on it's way back up again. Friendly, helpful staff, good selection of drinks. The Friday night steak dinner for two is great. Hope it continues!! Can't... More

Decided last minute to grab a bite to eat out. Pub was very busy but managed to find a table. Service very quick and staff were so polite and attentive. And the food - wow - never seen such size portions!! Was so delicious 😋 Can't recommend enough. Will definitely be returning. Thank you The Fountain Inn!

A frequent haunt for my husband and I for drinks and food anytime of the week. The staff are lovely and menu good traditional pub food. Also dog friendly with a pretty courtyard with lots of flowers in the summertime would recommend.

In between wedding dress trying on we had built up quite an appetite so my friend and I decided to try The Fountain, tucked away in an alley beside Westgate Street it looked like a suitable place to eat.

VERY helpful staff and the lady tweaked the cod and chips dish with help from the chef into something really delicious. I... More
