Food is good and for not more than 46,70 pound we both had a meal with desert and total of 4 drinks. Opposite there is a small parking where customers can park if you are early. Staff is friendly. Close to the city centre and the cathedral

We had lunch at the Fountain on Easter Sunday and we really enjoyed the place. Food was good (roast-beef, quiche, and fish and chips), service was attentive, and prices were reasonable. The atmosphere is also very pleasant. To be recommended.

Staying at a friends house in Wells we staggered a full 100 yards for Sunday lunch at the Fountain. Service was immacculate; super friendly, charming, attentive, informed and attractive. Food was good but fell short of excellent. We both started with goats cheese salad, perhaps rather a lot but with a competently dressed salad, mercifully free of frisee. Roasts beef, lamb and pork are all sourced locally. I had the lamb and my wife the pork loin. Both were too much fat for our taste and we forgot to ask for gravy on the side so that our plates followed the English habit of swimming in it. Vegetables were generous and delicious - not overcooked as much pub grub can be. We enjoyed a good Spanish Tempranillo, shared a great Bakewell tart with local ice cream and finished with proper coffee. At £60 for the two of us we felt we had good value. Altogether at the top end of the pub dining league.

The Fountain Inn has a delightful atmosphere and superb food.

We turned up on the spurr of the moment and managed to get a table which was lucky as they were fully booked all night.

The manager was extremely friendly and helpful and recommended some excellent dishes. I had the steak which was delicious and my boyfriend has Coq au Vin which he said was also delicious.

Prices were reasonable for the service and quality of the food and the atmosphere was great. We sat near the open fire in the front dining room which is a good spot.

Very good Sunday lunch in a beautiful little city. I didn't give it five 'dots' because the restaurant was very cold, so much so that I had to leave my coat on. The other minor niggle was that some of the cutlery was dirty. However, the food was lovey and hot. I had roast beef and it was splendid. Reasonably priced, around £11 for a main meal. Recommended, just would have been nice to have has the heating on!
