After reading good review we decided to give it a try. We were delighted to see a reduced price for Fish & Chips for seniors. The fish was just a little greasy, but it didn't bother my husband in the least. I just peeled away a little of the breading and the fish was very good. Chips were absolutely great.... More

Tonight we visited the fountain inn, we both had the lemon sole, the meal was exceptional. Rick stein couldn't have done better, the staff were very polite and helpful. The food was well priced. Will definitely go back again. Well worth the visit

If you want fish & chips in Mevagissey you have to come here. They are just the best. Huge portions, the freshest local fish, incredible batter, great chips, fab mushy peas. The best in Cornwall! The only thing I'd ask for is more welcoming staff, I know it's the end of the season but we all like a good friendly... More
