Went to the Fountain today for lunch, hubby had the roast, looked really good, real home made meal and plenty of gravy. He loved it, and the beer is kept really well. I don't really eat roast, saw they had crab sandwich, so thought that's for me, they don't really do them on a Sunday, but as it was not... More

The Fountain was recommended to us by a friend. It's a great pub with a really good atmosphere and a good selection of ales. We ate in the upstairs restaurant and our food was truly special. Service was very good. Fantastic value for money. Would recommend booking as The Fountain is a very popular place.

Went to this pub for two evening meals. Real olde worlde and lots of locals head there. Great food at reasonable prices, but very busy and unless you book for restaurant upstairs its pot luck as to getting a table. Would go again if and when next in Mevagissey.

Excellent end to Cornish break and extended walk around nearby coast and countryside. Stooped off in Mevagissey and found pub tucked away up narrow street close to harbour Front bar crowded but went through to rear Smuggler Bar which was empty and oasis of calm. Beers excellent - best of holiday and had special of the day Cornish Sole which... More

Popped in here for some dinner. Were lucky to get a table as it was packed - even at 6pm on a Thursday evening. I had the fish and chip special, with fish fresh off the boat that day and it was delicious - would definitely recommend. Good selection of real beer as well. Most definitely a 'proper pub', and...

We were recommended this pub by our B&B owners. Definitely worth a visit! Delicious fish and chips, fresh and filling! Get there before 7pm to guarantee a table, limited seating in this popular place.

The Pub has a great athmosphere and is something really special! The seafood was cooked (or warmed up) a bit too long, but still okay. Nice choice if local fish!

Possibly the best pub food I've had, the fish was so fresh and then perfectly cooked - mussels and scallops were both faultless and much enjoyed. Slightly more comfortable seating for my elderly backside would have made for perfection!

Situated just off the high street in Mevagissey is this small comfy pub. We have visited The Fountain now for over 3 years. The food quality is excellent and has remained consistent throughout. Their fresh fish and chips is the best in the area. There is a varied but uncomplicated menu of main meals and toasted sandwiches. It also has... More
