We spent a week in Mevagissey and frequented this pub a few times. We ate in it twice and both times the food was fantastic. The pub is very oldy worldy with a lovely roaring fire and a temperamental resident cat. Much to the delight of my dog! The staff are very friendly and very helpful. It's quite a cosy... More

The oldest pub in Mevagissey. In November when most of the tourists have gone, it turns into a cosy, local pub. Very friendly, lovely fire, good food and service, dogs allowed.

Great little pub with open fire and lovely warm welcome from the staff. We ate upstairs in their intimate restaurant which was full, fab meal and what lovely staff. We will be back and well recommend a visit may be worth booking as very popular.

Realy cozy place, again a warm welcome, the food was excellent, was a bit dubious when we were handed laminated a4 menu, but wow what we were served was fabulous. My partner an I both had the scampi and cod goujons. Huge portions with thick fillets of lightly battered cod, loads of scampi, chips were delicious. Came out feeling stuffed!!!... More

Even on a wet November evening this pub was busy but there is an upstairs dining room. My husband enjoyed excellent fish and chips followed by Cherry Crumble and custard whilst I had a delicious Fish Pie and Eton Mess. All the food was well cooked with generous portions. The service was efficient and friendly. This was genuine pub grub... More

Traditional pub tucked up a little side alley run by a true Cornish-man. Excellent lunch of locally caught sole, scallops and delicious fish and chips. Good choice of real ales all kept properly and great taste - superb.

Staying at the top of the hill made visits to the Fountain the perfect place for us! My friends and I ate here several times during our week's stay in Mevagissey and we were never disappointed. I tried several things on the menu and I especially enjoyed the fresh seafood. I loved the history, the atmosphere, the service, the resident... More
