I'm a very picky pub-goer; if I don't like the seats in a place I'll never darken the doors again but I've been drinking in the fountain since the present landlord arrived around 15 years ago. I'm not a huge barfly and for much of...More

I moved to the area a few years ago, but it took me a while to find The Fountain. I'm so glad I did; the staff and regulars are very welcoming, regardless of whether you've never dropped in before or just pop in occasionally. If...More
