Joe, Tessa and our team of staff welcome you to The Fountain Inn.

We are a Gastro Pub with an exciting menu which features freshly prepared dishes with interesting flavour combinations.  We pride ourselves on using locally-sourced ingredients of the highest quality.  Our team are passionate about the consistency and quality of the service and food.

We have a warm inviting atmosphere with a quirky, eclectic interior which adds to the overall dining experience.

You can find us located in the conservation area of  Wells adjacent to the world renowned Wells Cathedral and a short walk from Vicars' Close, which is the oldest residential street (mid-14th century) in Europe.


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.


Sorry, we no longer allow dogs/pets.


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 the car park opposite 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 this in the vehicle.  

The car park is managed by Car Parking Management (CPM) UK an independent company.  Customers can park between 12 - 4pm and 6 - 11.30pm.  Penalty charges received MUST be queried with CPM directly and NOT the Fountain Inn.    We are not responsible for any parking fines received.  Please request a Permit when we are open  to avoid any disappointment!
