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

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!

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
