The Fountain Hotel
Open all day
The Fountain Hotel
A previous winner of the 'British Food Pub of the Year', the interior of The Fountain is a clever blend of styles which is reflected in the menu. A traditional 'Olde English' country style merges seamlessly with a more contemporary setting with a nautical theme. The menu mirrors this with a range of traditional wholesome fayre integrated with some more exotic dishes with a leaning towards a seafood flavour. Swordfish and marlin are regularly offered alongside pheasant and venison on the daily specials board.
During the warmer months, the large beer garden offers the chance of alfresco dining, or maybe just somewhere to enjoy a cool, refreshing drink in the sunshine.
Children are welcome at all times (a kids' menu is always available) and the garden boasts a wide range of play equipment including a trampoline!
The central feature of the pub is a 1000 gallon aquarium, unique in a pub, which is home to several exotic species including a sting ray, a lipstick tang, an emperor snapper, a lion fish and star attraction 'Dancer' a leopard shark.
Open all day for food too, there are designated non-smoking areas available. Booking a table is necessary.
This traditional black & white 17th century farmhouse became a beer & cider house in 1855, and was known as The Hippodrome (meaning racetrack) in recognition of the horse racing which used to take place on Oldwood Common, adjacent to the pub.
As a coach house and cider mill it served the drovers with their herds on the way to market in England from the lush feeding grounds of the welsh hills.
The pub boasts its own organic herb & vegetable garden, the produce of which is widely used in the award winning menu.
The Fountain is home to its own mischievous but friendly ghost, Mr Thombs, a previous landlord who died while saving his dogs from a fire at the pub in 1958.
