Why we love it

Just like this cracking tavern’s frothy namesake, when it comes to the Fountain Head we can’t stop gushing. A well-proportioned town centre boozer with a solid selection of local beer on tap and a quietly ecumenical flavour to the decor. Plus board games, books and a dog friendly vibe. It might not have outside space, but it does have big windows and is south-facing. Staff are always up for a chat. There’s couches, and tables of all sizes. As for food, the Sunday roast is justly lauded, but the scotch eggs are also a bit special, alongside your standard complement of burgers and smaller sides. Triple cooked chips, too. Whet your appetite yet?

Excellent food and service


Good quality food


I've always liked this place. It has an open fire and very warm feel to the place. The food was very nice (crusty burger bun did cause some food spillage when biting down but hey ho! ) Good service though I went midweek so was fairly quiet. Excellent value with the Wriggle app. Decent selection of beer and lager too.


Good veggie options!


Had an awesome jackfruit burger and chips here. Lovely place to lunch!


Nice cosy pub with relaxed atmosphere. Sandwich portions were good and they were tasty. Great place to mix it up on a midweek lunch hour.
