Really nice Restaurant, not a Pub anymore, the food was unexpectedly good - well worth a visit, found the service most accommodating, with a good selection on the menu as well as the usual favorites best to book first. Only comment ,no drought ale.

Looking for somewhere to take mother in law out for a birthday lunch and settled on this. Just in case, we booked, and a good job we did, obviously it's very popular for lunch. Just to note, I'm nearly 60 and I was probably one of the youngest there We all opted for the set menu, wife and mum in... More

Having not visited here for many years I was not sure what to expect. But we had a fantastic meal. Some different items on the menu and a large specials board. Highly recommend here.

At £12 for a main course and a bill for 2 coming to £75 the Fountain isn't expensive but the food is only average and a long way from fine dining. The decor is tired and the paper serviettes set the tone but the choice and service are both good and you'll have a good evening.

I'd be in there every week. I can honestly say that I could have eaten everything from the menu. As well as a great selection from the seasonal menu, there were around half a dozen specials that were also tempting. On a cold evening, some good comfort food was required and the calves liver, black pudding, bacon, mash and veg... More

Honestly one of the best Sunday lunch ever! We booked the last table so expected the restaurant to be brimming when we arrived however the service was still first class. We were given our menus and plenty of time to consider all the lovely options and just at the right time our orders were taken. Our drinks order arrived very... More

Our visit was arranged to fit in with a lovely walk, we arrived early with dogs and young children, everything was set up ready for us. The menu and the specials gave plenty of choice at reasonable prices, I had crab soufflé followed by roast loin of Suffolk pork, all very nice and washed down with Adnams ghost ship ale... More
