“Excellent Fish and Chips”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

My husband and I have been going to mevagissey for years and never been to The Fountain, what a great pub really warm and friendly and a great pint of Tribute but what was the highlight was the fish and chips really delicous with very nice mushy peas all in all quite scrummy in my husbands words one of the best fish and chips he has had (and he has had a few!!)

“What a fantastic pub/eaterie”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Well worth finding - in narrow passage in centre of Mevagissey. Really old fashioned pub as one would imagine, low beams, small rooms and several bars. Really welcoming, very friendly staff, warm - especially on a cold February evening. The place was packed out. Food excellent - fresh fish. One of our party had fillet steak - perfect, really tender (as it should be). Quite noisy, but that's great and as a village pub should be. Could not fault food or service. We will definitely be going back.

“warm and welcoming”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Great pub to escape from a cold wet January day. Crackling fire, pleasant staff, good ale and wifi! Didn't have a meal but felt under no pressure to have lots of drinks either.

“Somewhere cosy and lively on a cold November day.”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Attracted by the board advertising fresh Cornish sole for lunch. Quite a long wait as place humming. Enjoyed the banter between 'mine host' and locals. Very large, beautifully cooked fish with chips and salad. Not at all greasy. Tables in bar small but it's worth sitting there.
