Visited the Fountain with my wife, my daughter and her boyfriend. Menu is great loads of choice. We all ordered different main courses and all the food was fantastic. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, can't rate it highly enough. We will be back.

Went last Sunday around 1pm half expecting to not get in, but there was lots of space, we got a warm welcome, super speedy service and a delicious breakfast of poached eggs, muffins, hollandaise sauce and we added streaky bacon plus one with black pudding and one with haggis. Highly recommend and will now be my go to Sunday brunch... More

I recently visited The Fountain whilst waiting for friends. I ordered a large glass of wine and paid with card. I was charged only £4:25 for the wine and £5 for using my card so in total £9:25 which turned out to be a very expensive glass of wine. I will not be returning.
