    The server was unfamiliar with the menu resulting in excessive food being ordered that was not necessary. The server admitted that he was new however training should have been given to familiarise the server with the menu.

    Hi There, Thank you for leaving us a review. All our team are inducted and trained when joining us, and afforded a buddy during their initial shifts. We're sorry this hasn't translated to better service here and we will continue our efforts to ensure an improved service moving forward. Kind regards Team Fountain House

    Unable to score anything more than this as we made a reservation for 7pm online at 6.30pm... walked 20mins to the restaurant to be told that the kitchen was closed and they wouldn't be able to honour our booking!
    The Fountain HouseResponded on 22 May 2024
    Hi There, We're really sorry to hear about this. Our Sunday service times are 12-8, with last seating 7:45, so we absolutely should have honoured this booking. If you don't mind we'd like to get in touch directly, could you email us at info@thefountainhouse.co.uk that would be much appreciated. Kind regards Team Fountain House

    We order seabass and salmon from the la carte manu. Both were not fresh. Salmon was too salty however the starters and the pudding was of good standard

We can assure you that our fish is delivered daily and is always to the highest standards. We hope perhaps you'll visit again so we can change your opinion. Kind regards Team Fountain House

    We had to wait 20 minutes to be seated after arriving on time. The waitress was lovely and the food very good but it was so noisy I couldn't wait to leave. I was sat opposite my partner and had difficulty hearing her. She has the advantage of being able to lip read! Most of the noise was from the bar upstairs as there is a 1M gap in the ceiling at the outside wall. I don't think I'll be going again.
    The Fountain HouseResponded on 16 May 2024
    Hi there, Thank you for leaving us a review and letting us know your feedback. We're sorry about the noise - when the pub upstairs is busy the noise does travel unfortunately. We have fed this back to Metro, our parent company, and hope to have this rectified on an upcoming refurbishment. We're pleased you enjoyed the food and service though. Kind regards Team Fountain House

    Lovely restaurant, hint of industrial and modern decor, nice to see a restaurant that does industrial in a very tasteful not overpowering way. Courteous staff. Food tasty, didn’t have time to stay for dessert but would have done. Meal price average - £15 burger and chips.
    The Fountain HouseResponded on 7 May 2024
    Hi Han, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review! We're really glad the food, service, and decor all came together to give you a great experience. Be sure to come back again soon and try some of our amazing desserts! All the best, The Fountain House Team

    Both sides on one of the main meals were both cold on service. When they returned with 2 new sides, 1 remained cool at best.

    Hi Carl, Thank you for leaving us a review and for letting us know about your experience. We're really sorry to hear that some of the food wasn't right for you and we've fed this back to the kitchen team to make them aware. Again, our sincere apologies for this, but know we use constructive feedback to help us learn and grow moving forward, and it is always appreciated. Kind regards Team Fountain House
