user reviews of the Fountain, Tottenham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Only reason for visiting this pub is that now it has a link up with a local Japanese restaurant/take-away and you can order their excellent food in the bar area.

But the beer choice (as noted before) is poor, and no cask ales. Don't come here simply for a drink.

This pub is split into two bars with the public bar on the left housing a pool table, dartboard, plasma screen and good sized bar. The right hand side of the pub is much larger with a big projector screen for showing Sky Sports and Setanta located on the wall behind a small raised area that is used for the bands/DJ to set up on during music events. There is also another plasma screen and a pool table located at the rear by the doors that lead to the beer garden.

There is only a selection of generic draught, which is a shame as there are two unused hand pumps in the public bar and another four in the main bar. The barman that served me was very friendly and my Guinness came in at £2.65 a pint. I spotted a menu and the food seemed very cheap (£2.99 for a burger and chips), so Iím not sure what the quality is like.

This is a good place for watching the football, but Iím not sure that I would want to visit any other time.

Bit of a khazi and absolutely no real ale. Large pub a few mins walk from Seven Sisters station. Tottenham is my spiritual home thanks to it's glorious football club but even i'd find it hard to praise this place. Shame really.

Best of a bad bunch round here.

Yes, the beer is poo but that's because no one in the local vicinity wants anything other than some firewater to smash down their faces and take advantage of the late license (and before anyone complains - I have done exactly that). Beer garden is lovely for a summer drink, and service is always with a smile.

It'll never win awards for being an experience but if you enjoy a pub where it's easy to get served, easy to watch football without 6 million people elbowing you or shoving their armpit in your mush, and don't want to feel intimidated by the locals, then here is the place. Just don't expect too much...

...and BTW I preferred the Connaught in it's heyday. Both very similar places....

Mediocre pub selling bland multinational brands of 'beer' to the accompaniment of a Sky sports and flashing games machines. This pub looks great from the outside - all tiled and with hanging baskets and seating. Also excellent beer garden. But what's the point if there is no choice at the bar but the same unappetizing selection of fizzy piss-water that you can get anywhere else. Waste of time!

This pub is not going to be knocked down, it has been saved!! Good job too, because one of only decent pub in the area. Pubs dropping like flys round here.

A nice big pub with pool tables, pinball, space invaders, big screen footy. A great beer garden in the summer, wiht the fountain of the name.

Cheap, decent food (nothing special, but helps soak up the beer), reasonable priced drinks, bottles of lager from 99p. Unfortunatley no real ales.

Great opening hours, open til midnight sun-weds, later thurs-sat. Live bands and discos.

I like it!

This pub is devoid of personalitly. A very unwelcoming place - avoid

I used to go to a blues jam here an thursday night which was good, relaxing atmosphere, quiet pub, decent beer,
i am annoyed because they are knocking down this pub and building more flats to make greedy profit and to house benefit scroungers/cheats

Plays host bi-monthly to the now legendary Cosmic Charlies, so for this reason alone it gets top marks!

Indoor Fountain?????
Great pub where race nor colour matters. All the regulars are really friendly and all others are made to feel welcome.

went there after an all night party, so the indoor fountain thing was interesting. Got whipped by a couple of 9 year olds at pool though. cool pub.

The only pub I know of in the area with a decent size beer garden. The garden is ok, but the fountain centrepiece can only be described as disappointing - a pathetic dribble going into a dirty pond. Inside fairly indescript, pool table and jukebox though I believe.
If you've nowhere else to go and the the sun is shining, pay a visit, otherwise don't bother.
