The much vaunted Fountain Inn left me wondering how the 5 star reviews could have been so different from my own experience. Dreary, threadbare and unwelcoming, the place should be closed for a month and totally revamped. The food was relatively expensive and very ordinary. Service was indifferent and our group of 9 were shoe horned into a space which...

This was my first visit but I was not disappointed. A nice warm welcome, no rush laid back but everything was worth waiting for. Unfortunatly one of my party was unable to find anything suitable due to diet problems but the staff were very helpful in finding an alternative. Well done every body

We always regularly visit this place on the way back from the Peak District, but how it has changed unfortunately. A slightly scruffy interior matched only by the unclean cutlery and complete lack of ambience which was only made worse by the bright interior lights and dull brass work. The staff were very pleasant but the meals were very mediocre...

Beautiful location. Friendly staff and food was OK. Bedroom was dark and dingy but comfortable. The whole place is in need of refurbishment. It's a bit like a nice pub/hotel from back in the 1980s. It could do much better by moving on with the times.

Stayed for one night during whitsun bank holiday. Staff generally ok apart from manager who needs customer service and manners training. We had misplaced the room key and politely asked for another one at the end of the evening. Only to be told there was no room keys available and there was nothing they could do about it!! After much...

Looking at other reviews , you either get the place or you don't. The staff are great, friendly and open, the chef has a great understanding of flavour and lovely presentation, scallops were some of the best I've had in the area for a very long time, risotto fabulous, and a lovely rhubarb frangipan to finish off with. Well thought...
