There comes a time when you are likely to be in the position of organising a family celebration. My husband and I visited The Fountain Inn to, in all honesty, check it out. First impressions were of an establishment with great olde worlde atmosphere, even though it was early and just one member of staff and one customer. We asked...

We had our wedding reception at The Fountain Inn on 5th November. Quite simply a fantastic day, delicious food and brilliant organisation. Fireworks were great! We can't thank Lisa and the team enough.

Didn't enjoy this too much at all. My cousin had the scampi and chips as she simply fancied a throwback to the '70's and got pretty much what was expected but it was soggy and tasteless. The chips were just about Ok. I had the vegetarian option of homemade falafel which sounded really delicious. Maybe I've been spoilt with a...

Quaint and pretty pub. Interior and bar could appear somewhat dated/needing smartening to some, but gives impression of a proper country pub and I'd far rather have that than than fancy chrome beer taps and hype. Friendly and efficient waitress who showed good customer service. Food was well cooked, excellent home style meals which were generously proportioned. Good choice of...

After reading good reviews, we visited for lunch during a stay in the area. We weren't disappointed. Lovely pub. Good atmosphere. Picturesque surroundings, with a nice garden to sit in when the weather is fine. Traditional pub fayre. We ordered the gammon and the scampi. Both were plentiful plates, freshly cooked and served hot. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely...

Went with a friend who heard about this place. Went on a Thursday lunchtime and she booked a table! Good job she did as there were lots of people eating. Inside it is not crowded at all, tables are well placed. I had homemade lasagne and my friend had fish and chips. The meals were great, the staff were great...

The rooms are simple and a bit bland and could do with an update a splash of colour and some pictures . The room was clean but not spotless. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was great. Some fresh quilts instead of blankets and a bit more attention to detail would make all the difference.

Many thanks for your review, we are currently albeit slowly redecorating all the rooms so unfortunately some are as you have described. I am glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay at The Fountain Inn.

What a beautiful building and gardens, the pub inside is proper old school with lots of character. The staff were friendly and good fun. Food was very good the biggest and I mean biggest fish finger sarnie ever! Basically 2 mini fish in a sarnie!!! The ham was also very tasty. We will be coming back here.

I'd been to the Fountain a couple of time for the odd bite to eat after band jobs. Last night I decided to treat myself and stay over before a band job in Ludlow. The Fountain certainly is a gem. Open all day with a good old pub atmosphere but light and airy as well. The bar food is excellent...

“if you want an early night then request a room which does not have a window facing the lawned area on warm evenings just in case of noise .... especially room 1 as there is a door immediately accesses this pleasant garden immediately outside the room. On the other hand, if you have children, this would be great ... horses for courses.....”
