“Pub Cuisine at it's Best.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Just 5 minutes from Wells City Centre is the hidden gem of The Fountain.
I have been several times, and thought I should do a review, so, ,,,if it's value for money? No worries, quantity?...plenty. Quality?....All locally sourced and cooked by experts. Ambience?...by the bucketload, cosy and warm. Good quality Ales?...absolutely.

In short, it doesn't get any better. This is a MUST on a visit to Wells. Top food, service, quality and easy to get to.

“"Good food and great entertainment"”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Booked Sunday lunch for family gathering on the 11 May had some great food and was thoroughly entertained by three very talented musicians apparently from London playing an impromptu session with some easy listening music. Left a couple of hours later very full and very chilled.

Thank you to the lovely Stuart family for the review. We enjoy having you and your friends & family dine with us. The impromptu music supplied by the infamous Sam Smith and his boys was an absolute delight! Look forward to your next visit.

“Celebration”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

Had a pleasant evening with a party that celebrated their wedding anniversary. The staff were very efficient and couldn't do enough for the party. Food was outstanding, would recommend the Duck and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Have planned a return visit in September for a family meal. Definitely worth a visit!

Thank you for your lovely review! We loved sharing their special day, a 60th wedding anniversary is a rare Celebration and a testimony to two very special people. We look forward to your next visit.

“Great welcome”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We spent a lovely evening eating and drinking at The Fountain inn. We were well looked after, excellent food and pleasant wine. My only comments would be the OTT chocolate pavlova was too big and overfilled with cream! All the rest was lovely

Thank you for your review and positive comments. We are in absolute shock regarding our Pavlova- as desserts are all about decadence and OTT!! As99.99% of our patrons rave about our Pav, we will have to take your comment as personal taste.
