Nearly an hour after ordering we had our meals.. barely cooked omelette and... More

We occasionally visit La Fontaine when in the area and this time I have to say was the worst experience with three of our party coming down with food poisoning after a meal. The food selection is poor (4 choices) and all are fried, the drinks selection is limited with only house wines on offer and beers. The owners should... More

True to its namesake La Fontaine Pub sits proudly at the heart of this medieval village facing the fountain in the centre of the square. Visitors always receive a warm welcome from Sheila & Dave the owners and whether just stopping by for a drink or lingering longer over a meal one is guaranteed a first class service amidst the...

Since my last review this English style pub has vastly improved and is now, at times, bursting at the seams. So much so that I have nominated them for the "Best of British Awards 2012". They now shut on Wednesdays since, for some reason, the town seems to empty that day although is crowded on Thursday morning as it"s market... More
