We chose to eat here because it is one of the few places with a everyday menu where you can book a table in the evening. The menu is a bit restricted but wide enough to suit adults and teenagers. Our meal was good tasty pub fare that was reasonably priced (£68 for 5 main courses with drinks and a... More

I knew most of Mevagisseys restaurants would specialise in seafood dishes which is fine but being a fisherman myself I normally go for red meat dishes. The Fountain Inn was recommended to me as a good "meat" place. It is one of the two original village pubs, the other being The Ship, and has a lovely olde worlde charm. Great... More

Only found this place by accident. It was tipping it down and we were looking for shelter. Once inside we ordered drinks and chips, only to be told that we'd missed the 2pm cut-off for the food. Fair enough, we enjoyed the drinks anyway. However, the staff took pity on us and cooked the chips anyway and we have ALL... More

Great character, good beer and service. We had a lovely lunch here. It was not overcrowded and the pub has a nice feel about it. We would certainly return.

What a great little pub ! Full of friendly locals and nice choice of beers. If you are tall like me mind your head on the cling ! It made me laugh this place as a lot of large local men were stood at the bar all having to tilt their heads so they could fit under the beams. Didn't... More

We called in here for a drink on a wet weekday afternoon. The pub was almost empty so getting a seat wasn't a problem. The lady behind the bar was friendly, nice to have service with a smile. We were only there for about 30 mins but three families enquired about food during that time and left after being told... More

We went there twice and found it to be very busy with limited seating. In addition, the bar area was small and often crowded. We didn't eat there but the food did look apertising.
