Review on The Fountain Inn

The Fountain Inn, originally built during the 16th century has a well-deserved reputation for superb quality food and an excellent choice of wine.

The kitchen uses the finest local produce to create a tremendous selection of delicious home cooked food available to diners in both the bar and restaurant.

Offering a choice of vegetarian dishes, a children's menu and vegan dishes on request; desserts and a fine selection of West Country cheeses round off a splendid, good value meal.

    Poor quality food, service and to top it off I got a parking ticket for parking in their car park

    The food was extremely lacking in any flavour (fish) and the service was pretty low. The final straw was the parking ticket for parking in their car park! At no point when we booked the meal, phone calls and emails (Xmas party) were we advised that we needed to get a parking permit from bar. We were not advised by any member of staff during the evening that we could get a ticket. They really don't care! Be careful! That was a really expensive awful evening never to be repeated!!

    The worst restaurant in the world

    On the 28 of June I went to Fountain Inn for a professional meeting . My husband came with me but he could not attend to our meeting and he just wanted to stay apart and have a meal . He sat on the a table and asked for a menu . The waitress asked him if he was alone and my husband said yes . Then the waitress just told him all places are booked and no place for him . Meanwhile I sat on upstairs for about 2 hours and there were plenty of table unoccupied until the time I left the restaurant . All this time my husband just sat in the car waiting for me . This is not possible and this is extremely rude what they did for my husband . He is not a beggar asking for charity , he wanted to spend his money at this restaurant . It is a shame what we experienced here . We were all over the world but anywhere we did not have such a humiliated treatment . I will tell to all my friends no to go there as it is a risk of being treated in the same way . Also we will not go there ever .
