On visiting family in Swansea, the restaurant was booked for a Saturday evening for a party of 15 of us ( no small feat ). We had not pre-ordered our meals, but that made no difference. All the meals once ordered arrived at the same time very efficiently with great service. All the meals looked great and well presented, needless...

Another lovely meal at The Fountain, one very slight criticism is more veg is needed on a table for 4 people, the portion was very meagre, infact only 2 florets of broccoli between 4, was surprised that when we asked for more veg we were charged for it. The meat, beef and lamb was delicious and this was a decent...

The garden area was an amazing inviting area. It was clean with a comforting feel. The entrance and decor were just beautiful; we had a warm welcome. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Our menu was full of delighting food which made choosing a meal a challenge. We both chose the Ribeye steak with the garlic prawns (surf and...

Went here last weekend and was really looking forward to it, to be horribly disappointed! The bread basket with balsamic vinegar dip and oil was massively over priced for the 4 "mothers pride basic type" rolls which had clearly been mircowaved to heat up.... So didn't start off great! The fountain burger was of a cheap basic standard which resembled...

The room was large and clean but the bed was very, very small and not comfortable. Staff at breakfast and the lady on the first evening when we had dinner were very helpful and polite. The Gentle man who helped us with check in only really cared about taking pre payment and the disclaimer forms we had to sign. Staff...

Live in the Bont and have drank in the fountain on numerous times but never eaten, and won't again. We arrived ad hoc Friday and was reluctantly shown a table by a very miserable young man.He walked off and didn't even ask if we wanted a drink!!! I ordered white bait and then for main house burger. Let's just say...

After googling 'gluten free swansea' and finding the Fountain, we thought we'd give it a go. We thought it looked nice and bright on arrival, possibly over-modernised. The girl behind the bar was very welcoming, and quickly showed us to a table. The service was perhaps a little too over attentive - or maybe we were chatting too much! We...

Lovely Sunday lunch here for Mothers day with the family, food was delicious, fresh and hot, beef was melt in the mouth tender and the others in our party had pork, lamb and chicken and all commented how delicious it was. Will be back!
