Recently refurbished and under new management, the transformation is incredible - from 'dive' to 'find'!

Have recently had both lunch and dinner at the Fountain.

Generous, scrummy portions and friendly service make it a great spot.

The biggest problem with it is it's just down the road from work, so maybe a little TOO convenient!!! :)

Visited The Fountain Tavern today. Excellent quality food with both quantity and quality. We had the roast, curry (chicken tikka) and 2 of us had the 'Fountain Burger' all exellent. Both the apple crumble and chocolate brownies were also good. Good service.

Have visited this pub regularly for lunch and dinner since it re-opened. The food is nicely presented and delicious. If you like spicy food, the curries and the chilli con carne (my favourite) are very good, plus there is a daily specials board. The staff are very friendly and helpful, all together, a pub worth visiting!

We went here for meal in a large party, the order was sent through in advance so there were no surprises for the kitchen. I would have expected that we would all have got our meals on or about the same time but it took nearly 30 mins from the first main course coming out to the last one. This was a great pity, my partner had the sole, which was very nice and looked equally nice, though by this time I'd long since finished the warm seafood salad (for salad read a few green leaves pushed together) which, on the seafood side was OK. With iffy service this let down a place we had been looking forward to eating at and while one of the course we had was nice, it wasn't outstanding.
