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!

We had a wonderful break in Okehampton, the landlord and his wife were warm and friendly, and so committed to making our stay a good one. The locals were all ready for a chat too! The food was excellent. I thoroughly recommend this place!

Room is decorated very nice and modern, and room is a good size. Everything was very clean. Bathroom is lovely and big with a huge shower but we were disappointed we couldn't use it as on running it, the tray filled up very quickly and would not go down at all. If we had used it I think the tray... More

Things are still looking a bit like a building site in places but that aside we had a comfy stay. A warm welcome and helpful... More

Recently revamped, the decor is now in keeping with the style of building. It has a lovely, proper village pub feel to it, even though it's in the lovely town of Okehampton. We had bar food, which was excellent value and totally delicious. My Steak and onion baguette had massive pieces of steak, cooked as I had requested. I hope... More

I was made very welcome by the owners of this wonderful old Inn, located near the centre of Okehampton. The Inn has recently undergone major refurbishment, it remains the lovely old inn with all the charm, but, with the added advantage of contemporary glass doors in the old entrance way , which lead into the newly laid garden. The rooms... More
