Normally we absolutely love going to the Fountain in Ashurst. Food is usually lovely, with friendly staff and a great ambience. We went there last night and had a very different experience to what we are used to. Quite a wait for our food, and it wasn’t up to their usual standard at all. Main meal was poor in fact! Plus, they had music on loudly that sounded like it belonged on radio 1. Not pleasant for dining. Such a shame. Not sure the Car Boots that start next month will add anything to the pub either!!!

They managed to fit us and our three dogs in last minute and served us a delicious veggie roast option.

We’ve been to the fountain pub several times nice cosy pub with nice fires.
Service for food was very poor extremely slow half the table had there food and others had to wait about 5 mins before rest was served. When food come it was ok.
We all ordered puddings only to be told most run out of most puddings every thing else we chose the same thing then the waitresss said chocolate brownie but that wasn’t even on menu .
The pub restaurant wasn’t even busy so how can you run out of food ?? Very disappointed

We visit the Fountain reguraly and really enjoy the food and the cosy surroundings with log fires in winter.
Today we were disappointed, the wait for food was over 30 minutes and when it came our burgers were not quite cooked and salty. The French fries were oout of a packet and my bottle of larger was warm. One barmaid was doing everything on her own and the usually warm atmosphere had gone.
I am sorry to write this review but the Fountain normally aintains very high standards.

Lovely old pub with roaring open fire and friendly staff. Beer well kept.
But.......
Had to wait the best part of an hour for food to arrive - completely unacceptable!
The fish and chips were very good when they did arrive though.
