    The food was exceptional quality - the best Sunday roast we'd ever had at a restaurant, with all the vegetables cooked to perfection! Very good portion sizes, too. Quaint and comfortable setting. The only negative was that the service felt rushed, almost as though we were being pounced upon. It would also have been nice to have been given a wine list with the menu.

    A great pre concert meal, perfectly prepared and presented. Both dishes were delicious: Grilled salmon, stir fry veg, lemon & herb potato cake & saffron aioli and Indina vegetable curry.

    We eat here 4 or 5 times a year to meet up with family who live further south in Somerset. Haven’t been disappointed with any meal yet. A good size menu which recognises The Fountain’s own description as a ‘gastro pub’. Nice place, will be visiting again in a few weeks.

    The welcome was friendly and the staff were efficient. The menu was good with some different things to choose from to the usual run of the mill. We started with the bread basket which was yummy, then my husband had fish and chips and I had authentic Indian curry. After that I was pleasantly full but husband found room for cheesecake that was excellent. All in all food was lovely and atmosphere very nice. Would visit again if in Welles.
