“Pub grub perfect for families with young children but not for the group looking for a relaxed meal.”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

If it's pub grub you're after with the additional advantage of a play area to entertain your children when your meal is over, then this is the ideal place for you.
On the other hand if you're looking for a nice quiet meal in a lovely countryside setting, be sure to give Les Fontaines a miss. The quiet country setting is perfect but with children running and screaming from their tables to the playarea mostly unsupervised you will not have a peaceful dinner. While the staff were friendly, the service scored low as orders must be placed at the bar and paid for in advance. This causes a disjoint and is frankly inconvenient as main meal, additional drinks and dessert require several visits to the bar.The food was overall reasonably good, however the Thai green curry with Asian vegetables was disappointing for the vegetarian in our group as it contained three types of veg; broccoli, cauliflower and carrots-hardly Asian!

“Superb food”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We holiday in jersey every year and a few years ago we found this pub. Every year we return to eat here once or twice during our stay and are never disappointed in the quality of the food and the friendly staff . We would recommend this as a must for people who enjoy good food in a relax atmosphere (where you don't have to dress up).

“Good Food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

A great visit to a pub with a marvellous selection of food. Good service and a good atmosphere - even though it was a Monday Night. A refurbished play area for anyone who needs it would provide a valuable asset to any younger families needing somewhere to occupy their children.
