We could not fault this place on a recent Wednesday night stay in Wells. Although it was quiet on a week night the staff were very friendly but efficient and looked after us very well. It was a very cold evening and there was a fire burning which added to the lovely warm welcome. As for the food, well ....... More

Wow!Wow!Wow! One of the best roast dinners I have ever had. I ate with 4 friends and we all had an amazing lunch. This is by far the best place to eat in town.....really nice atmosphere and staff. Brilliant value too! I also ate here before christmas and again the food was excellent.

Had a lovely meal here in January with friends, sat near the open log fire, lovely as it was bitterly cold and snowing outside ! The meals we had were all excellent and reasonably priced. More of a restaurant than a pub, although there was a small bar area where you could just have a drink and a chat. Will... More

5 of us ate at this Pub/Restaurant on a Tuesday night in early November. The tables were all full and there was a great ambience. Somehow the two guys serving managed to keep everybody happy with their attentive and friendly service. The food was great, I particularly enjoyed my steak (served Medium Rare and cooked to perfection). This is high... More

Me and my partner visited the fountain on the 2nd day of our holiday. Most of the places we had looked at in the local area were really expensive but this place was really quite reasonable. I had chilli con carne with rice and cheese topped nachos which was really tasty and the portion was more than enough. My partner... More

We went to The Fountain Inn on a Monday evening, as they have a 2 for £12 menu which proved to be very popular with the locals. The menu had a nice variety of dishes to choose from, which included the usual variety of pub meals. Service was quick, and we didn't have to wait long for our food. The... More

A nice enough restaurant but not really as good as the locals make it out to be. Food was fresh, well cooked and tasty and not too expensive - just don't go in expecting an amazing dining experience and you will probably be more than happy. Its really just a pub that serves (admittedly good) food.

Last week we went to the Fountain expecting a lovely evening. How wrong we were. Food seemed ok but the childrens portions were very small indeed.I had to give my daughter half of my fish to make it just a normal kids size. I had the fish and chips and my wife, the chicken salad but I found a caterpillar... More

We visited on a Monday where they have a 2 For £12 deal. Menu not extensive but we all found something we liked the look of and I was pleasantly surprised the food was excellent. In total for the three of us the bill was £38 for four drinks, three mains, one dessert and one coffee. The service was good,... More
