The Fountain is in a great location, especially if you're going to the cinema across the road. I had the steak pie and chips which was fantastic. The decor is very bright and fresh. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Recommended.

We found this pub as just moved nearby - it's attempting to be a gastro pub - nice ambience but unfortunately food quality is not up to the price tag. £16.50 for sunday roast and £1.50 for soda and fresh lime!! wouldn't be going back better cheaper roasts nearby

Visited the Fountain with my wife, my daughter and her boyfriend. Menu is great loads of choice. We all ordered different main courses and all the food was fantastic. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, can't rate it highly enough. We will be back.
