Joe, Tessa and our team of staff welcome you to The Fountain Inn.
The Fountain Inn built circa 1700 is located a short walk from the Cathedral and the famous Vicars Close in the beautiful city of Wells, Somerset.

We are a Gastro Pub with a quirky interior. Our team strive to deliver excellent quality food and service to make your dining experience a special one. Our menu changes seasonally and only uses the very best local ingredients. 


We are delighted to welcome well behaved children to The Fountain Inn.  We have a children’s gastro menu and we provide high chairs available on request.  We do insist that children are seated with adults and supervised at all times and that any noise or disruption is kept to a minimum.


Dogs are also very welcome in the front bar/dining area only but we do not provide them with their own menu – maybe a biscuit from the jar!  The same behaviour rules apply to them also….


Our Gastro Pub is a listed building and therefore we are limited with the provision of customer facilities such as a disabled washroom and baby changing room.   We do apologise for this inconvenience.


We have made provision for our customers to park in our car park when dining with us and we have  a Free Parking Permit facility.  Please ask a member of staff for your  Parking Permit upon arrival.   It is the customers responsibility to request a permit and clearly display in their vehicle.  

The car park is managed by Car Parking Management (CPM) UK an independent company.  Any penalty charges received MUST be queried with CPM directly and NOT the Fountain Inn.    Please request a Permit to avoid any disappointment !
