Me and my family had a lovely meal here, friendly staff and great chicken. Great burgers and kids meals. It's located just near the quay. Good outdoor space and well kept beers, very Covid aware and felt confident that they were doing everything they could to keep staff and customers safe

We stopped off here for some lunch after a sail over from the Hamble. Normally we would walk into the town as the Fountain is right on the Red Jet ferry terminal and can get a bit busy but, on a whim, decided to try here. We sat outside and the service was very attentive, the staff friendly and chatty. Food was pretty good and value for money so we were not dissapointed. Andy ( I think he was the Manger) did a brilliant job making sure things ran well in this Covid secure world we live in, he is to be congratulated.

Random stop off for food and drinks. Food was amazing. The sea bass risotto was the best I've had in years. Strict Covid-19 rules and hyper cleanliness from staff made us feel safe. Andy the owner was lovely as were all the other staff. Will definitely be back.

The only pub in cows that made us feel welcome walking in off the street. Good food friendly staff. Couldn’t ask for more.
