I reviewed this pub after a stay a couple of years ago and gave it a glowing reference. I returned for another night away recently and while all was still very good - I cannot be quite so glowing about it. The welcome was a bit difficult as the pub was so busy, but the room was freezing and there... More

My wife, myself and our two dogs have just returned from a lovely three night stay at the fountain Inn. It was was only our second stay there, but we have stopped for a drink and meal in the past.

Popped into the Fountain Inn for an evening meal - bit of a chance being a party of seven - and had a lovely evening.

The food was delicious, locally sourced, freshly cooked and well-presented, with our choices including Chicken Korma, Chilli,... More

Many thanks to Michelle and staff at the Fountain Inn for a great stay this weekend. Our group of six from Hastings shared the very reasonable lodge accommodation. Great breakfasts, lovely walks and well-kept ale, what more could we ask,(the weather was fantastic too).

We normally tend to stay in larger hotels, but this place had been recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. Our room was a good size and very comfortable. We faced onto the road in front, but the village is not busy and there was very little noise from outside. Breakfast was very good, and the evening meal... More
