The Fountain Head

A 14th Century pub serving traditional award winning real ales from the Branscombe Vale Brewery and good old fashioned cooking. There are not many pubs left like the Fountain. An open log fire, slate flags on the floor and home cooked prices that won't break the bank. This is a place to enjoy some good conversation, to sup some ale and relax. There are no jukeboxes, pool tables or wide screen TVs, just a very warm welcome and everything that pubs used to be.
