We only had a drink here but we received a warm welcomed and enjoyed sitting on the bench outside. We were recommended this pub for fish and chips - but we were not planning on a meal.

Full of character and a bevy of locals making it a very happy & enjoyable visit. My Grandfather, Father, and Uncle were regular visitors when in town. See why now.

Have been using this Pub for many many years and each time we go back the food just keeps getting better. This pub's food is as good as you get at Rick Stein's but at a fraction of the cost, one of the best eateries in Cornwall.

The Fountain is like stepping back in time. It is a proper pub with good beer and really good food. HUGE crab salad, really fresh from the sea, Gammon steak lovely Next evening Scallops and a lovely pork chop - Beautifully cooked. Friendly people, could have stayed longer and drank a lot more ! Sadly time ran out !

We had a great family meal here. We ate upstairs in the restaurant which is small, quiet and very pretty. The menu had a good choice and 2 of our party had the Codfather! A plate full of enormous cod goujons, scampi, chips etc. I had the fish pie - you can't be in Mevagissey and not have fish. It... More

My boyfriend and I went to the fountain inn on 21 June for a coffee and brandy after dinner in the Portuguese restaurant. I really Loved the pub, it's very cosy, got lots of character and plenty of the fishing villages history in pictures. Would recommend one to visit it.

We went to the fountain for drinks on several nights during our week stay in Mevagissey, the pub is cosy and we were very welcomed by the landlady and staff. We hope to return next year and definitely will spend more nights here. With regards to the review below we were there when this happened and personally thought it was... More
