Now under new management, The Fountain makes a convenient pit-stop off the A1(M) for frazzled parents and their hungry children. Unpretentious pub grub at reasonable prices is the deal here, but a ‘fresh is best’ attitude and support for local growers drive the inn’s ethos nonetheless. Some look no further than stone-baked pizzas and meal deals on the kiddies’ menu. But chicken liver pâté and steak and ale pie are home made; steaks chargrilled to order can be served with the special house salad; and the specials list may proffer a goat curry. On tap are beers from Welbeck Abbey Brewery.
