Traditional values are important to this pub - you'll find no televisions, pool tables or juke boxes, only deliciously hearty food, meant to be enjoyed in good company. Light bites are available at lunchtime, including a range of sandwiches served on fresh, crusty bread. The dinner menu is concise, and comprises traditional dishes which have stood the test of time. Starters include beer-battered Brie wedges accompanied by a homemade ginger and pear chutney, and fresh, locally procured scallops encased in smoked bacon and served with a sweet chilli mayonnaise. Mains are equally delectable, from the fish pie topped with cheesy mashed potato to the roasted aubergine and goat's cheese harmonised with new potatoes, plum tomatoes and fresh basil.

Once an old forge, the dining room features a log fire, which is perfect for keeping diners warm in the winter. In the warmer months, guests can make use of the ample outdoor seating, and sip their way through a refreshing beer, procured from the local Branscombe Vale brewery. Summertime brings live music and a spit-roast and barbecue every Sunday, and in June the pub also holds a beer festival, with live bands throughout the weekend.

Meals are complemented by friendly and personable service, making this 14th-century pub a real pleasure to visit. The Fountainhead Inn is family friendly, and also welcomes well-behaved dogs
