This is a traditional pub doing home cooked food in a very picturesque part of the Wye Valley. We often stop there for food after walking or fishing in the area. In winter you can sit near the fire and relax and in summer you can have your food out in the lovely little cottage garden. I would recommend the... More

Stopped off during a walk in March with several of my hiking friends, we had a nice hearty meal and a great pint of beer, some choose a pint of cider. Staff and locals were very friendly and made it a very nice visit for myself and my friends. We will visit again.

The Fountain Inn was a welcome place after 3 hours walking in the area. 10 of us had food and everyone without exception said their meals were excellent. The beer was also very good with a varied selection available.

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Made to feel very welcome by the landlord. Really good beer and tasty, wholesome food. It's a good rustic pub with no pretentions. We'll be going back, for sure.

Had the good fortune of spending a few days at Tintern we thankfully stumbled across this charming pub. The menu was varied and centred on local produce, we chose a sharing platter of fish with salad and bread, tuna, prawns, salmon among others were all perfectly cooked, all puds were homemade and equally tasty, fantastic value, great service would love...

Have recently had the good fortune to spend two Sunday lunches here. The first time me and the OH were looking for somewhere to have lunch but didn't want a roast, (everywhere seems just to do roast on a Sunday theses days) the Fountain came up trumps. We sat in their lovely garden on a very hot afternoon and both... More

We celebrated a 23rd wedding anniversary with friends and had a lovely afternoon tea. We can highly recommend the food,location and service. The yea was well stocked fresh sandwiches, cream scones and served with tea on the landlords mothers 30 year old china. We were asked to be careful with the china.

We visited the Fountain for Sunday lunch. After a wet walk from Tintern a decent beer was very welcome. They had a wide range of lunch options and all were reasonably priced. The food came quickly, the service was friendly and everything was tasty. Well cooked using good quality ingredients. We'll be back.

Our meals were brilliant value. The owners really do deserve support, they are so lovely. Nothing was too much trouble, properly sized meals, made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and cooked to perfection. Have visited a few times for a drink, good real ales and sat beside the log fire, bliss! Have booked a table for Christmas! Yes, that good!

We'd been staying locally for a fortnight and it was without doubt the best pub/restaurant in the area. We ended up back there lunchtimes, evenings and for Sunday lunch. Its a touristy area so there are many establishments around but this was the most welcoming. Great family run pub with lots of atmosphere, they were even running early breakfasts for... More
