Frequently asked questions

Do you accept walk-ins?

Yes, we love to have walk-ins. If your walking or cycling past us – stay for a pint or have a leisurely dinner or lunch. We can get über busy though, so if you can – try to book first to avoid disappointment.

Do you accommodate dietary requirements and allergens?

We sure do. Whether you’re gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian – we’ll always do our upmost to ensure you can join a lovely meal with us. Please do you speak to your server when you order as we can always make adjustments to what’s on the menu to accommodate your needs. We even have gluten-free beers and lagers available.

Can I just stop by for a drink?

Absolutely you can. If you’re driving, cycling or walking past we’re a brilliant place to stop. Whether you fancy a cocktail, a locally crafted gluten-free beer, a glass of rosé from the local Coolhurst vineyard – or you change your mind discover you’re actually a bit peckish and want a full course three course dinner…You’re welcome to join us for a little or a long as you like.

Can I reschedule or cancel my reservation?

Yes, you can do this easily via OpenTable or just give us a call on +44(0) 1403 710219. We appreciate you letting us know if you can’t make it.

Can I get a taxi from The Fountain?

You sure can. We have a local chap we use and we can give him a bell and you can leave your car in our car park if needed.

Are children allowed?

Yes, we’re a family-friendly pub. Children of any age are welcome during the day and early evening. High chairs are available but limited in number, they can be booked in advance. We would ask parents to ensure that their little people do not run around in the eating areas (excluding the garden) as hot food is being served by our staff.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes indeedy – we love dogs and even have our own Delilah, the resident pub Cavapoo! We generally don’t allow them in the restaurant but they’re welcome in both of our bars, The Seagrass Champagne & Seafood bar and throughout our extensive gardens. Our gardens are gated most of the way around but we’d advise keeping your pooch on a lead and all four paws on the floor.

Do you have a garden or outdoor space

Yes, we have loads! We have a very large garden with laid to lawn area, a terrace, Seagrass, our outdoor Champagne & Seafood bar, a deck that over looks our pond and various other nooks. There are lots of tables with shaded areas available and umbrellas in the summer too.

Do you offer accommodation?

Unfortunately not. But there’s heaps of brilliant places you can stay nearby or we can organise transport for you. We’ve listed a few of our favourite places we’d recommend you stay that are a short walk from the pub.
