My partner and myself went here last week for a meal. I have been many years ago when it was extremely popular and I often struggled to get a table. My partner had never been. It was a Tuesday night and the pub was very quiet with only another couple eating. The staff were very friendly and polite and there... More

The much vaunted Fountain Inn left me wondering how the 5 star reviews could have been so different from my own experience. Dreary, threadbare and unwelcoming, the place should be closed for a month and totally revamped. The food was relatively expensive and very ordinary. Service was indifferent and our group of 9 were shoe horned into a space which... More

This was my first visit but I was not disappointed. A nice warm welcome, no rush laid back but everything was worth waiting for. Unfortunatly one of my party was unable to find anything suitable due to diet problems but the staff were very helpful in finding an alternative. Well done every body

We always regularly visit this place on the way back from the Peak District, but how it has changed unfortunately. A slightly scruffy interior matched only by the unclean cutlery and complete lack of ambience which was only made worse by the bright interior lights and dull brass work. The staff were very pleasant but the meals were very mediocre... More

Beautiful location. Friendly staff and food was OK. Bedroom was dark and dingy but comfortable. The whole place is in need of refurbishment. It's a bit like a nice pub/hotel from back in the 1980s. It could do much better by moving on with the times.

My wife and I had lunch from the £11.95 for 2 menu and we both thought it was very good value. I had steak pie and my wife had beef stroganoff and both meals were tasty and excellent value for money. We eat out on a regular basis and we have paid a lot more for a lot less. The... More

Stayed for one night during whitsun bank holiday. Staff generally ok apart from manager who needs customer service and manners training. We had misplaced the room key and politely asked for another one at the end of the evening. Only to be told there was no room keys available and there was nothing they could do about it!! After much... More
