Reopening Soon!

We are currently closed but truly hope to reopen our doors again and see you soon.

The perfect haunt for those wanting an alternative to the usual pubs and bars in town, this is a real pub with a modern twist. We’ve taken speakeasy style and raised a glass to home comforts. Behind our bar you’ll find great beers, an array of spirits and a modest selection of wine. Our food focuses on simplicity and sharing, prepared using only the freshest ingredients.

The Fountain is the perfect place for a drink after work or for meeting friends through the week. Directly opposite from Fountain Park; it’s also a great hub to head to for ‘pre and post’ cinema food & drinks.
