“Highly Recommended Village Restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

We had our first meal at the Fountain restaurant shortly after they opened in June 2012 and have been back many times since.

Over the last year or so we have got to know Catherine and John well, who are very welcoming and nothing seems to be too much trouble.

The menu is extensive with plenty of choices including vegetarian, children's meals, early evening specials and a specials board for even more options. We've just recently tried their stone bake pizzas which were awesome!

As everything is cooked to order this allows some flexibility with regards to ingredients and takeaways are available too. If you'd prefer to eat something that's isn't on the menu there is also the option to call in advance and arrange what you would like for your meal.

Everything is very reasonably priced, well presented and expect generous portions!

We have booked early for Christmas Day lunch but will be back many times before then!

Yet again John and Cath did themselves proud.
Provided a buffet style banquet fit for the queen.
Quality and quantity second to none.
Great food, great presentation, great taste.
Very impressed - again.

“MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

We have eaten here on a few occasions and have never been disappointed.
The food is very well presented, reasonably priced,very generous portions made with fresh local ingredients and most of all extremely tasty.
The Thai Green curry is the best and freshest my friend has ever tasted, I had a rump steak and it was cooked exactly as I'd asked and served with excellent onion rings and all the trimmings.
The desserts are to die for. All homemade and well presented.
You must pay a visit soon and I can assure you you will not be disappointed.
