I've been coming for meals here nearly every week to meet up with friends, because it's just so wonderful! Really tasty food, a specials board which has new items every time I go in! Really friendly staff and a very warm welcome. Great prices, great pub! What more can I say?! You have yourself a very loyal customer. For those... More

First of all the good points, pub is very quaint and staff are helpful and friendly. Seems to be a couple of bars and a separate eating area too. Didn't eat here in the evening but both my daughters have on separate occasions and they both rate the food highly.. Breakfast was fine, no complaints. Now the room was another... More

Another day, another dollar! Lovely pub, really lovely bar staff, sincerely very lovely, very caring, welcoming and extremely friendly. Nice setting, very nice pub, small but lovely outside space. Nice looking food menu, plates coming out of the kitchen look nice. Shame about the landlady, seems to enjoy being rude when it suits her!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a couple of days working down in devon and we choose the fountain inn as our accommodation. The room was very clean and comfortable with en-suite the only downside was no TV in my room . We also had dinner in the bar and found this to be very nice and good portion sizes. Breakfast was also plentiful... More

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.

Ok, so I walk in to what I think is a classy, modern day pub but am approached by a grumpy bar maid who seems to be inflicting her bad mood on the rest of the staff. She looked as if she was a manger, dark hair, in charge - yet doing nothing; other than bossing these shambles of staff.... More
