This is a charming old inn. It has a local bar and a very good restaurant. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The setting is charming. The car park is a bit tricky, but it is the UK.

I came in after the pub had been taken over. What a shambles, they got tea and coffee mixed up, how I don't know! They clearly don't know what they are doing, prices are very high probably the highest in town. The girl behind the bar was selling alcohol to her friends, and someone said that they were under age,... More

very disapointed with the whole experience, drunk landlady and a landlord that seemed more content with looking after his locals (because they were buying him drinks). we felt that it was,nt the place that i wanted my son to witness, Having worked in the licenced trade for over 25 years, this is certainly not the way to behave when most...

The Fountain has had a superb makeover and the new owners (Simon & Asta) are very friendly and hospitable. The food and drink were top notch and I only wish I was able to stay overnight. Much improved and the best pub in Okehampton by a country mile!
