I think it had been almost 5 years since my last visit here. I was back briefly yesterday, following a visit to the Draft House Old Street, just across the road. The Old Fountain was quiet and we were the only ones in. But it still has a good craft beer and real ale range. Ales were Hammerton N7, Tempest Cascadian, Five Points XPA, Oakham Citra, Moor Confidence & Fuller's London Pride. The cider was Cock Eyed Mad Jack.

Just have to agree with "curleysue" and other posters this is a gem.
A must visit if in the area.

Great boozer, with a fantastic range of beers from near and far. Staff very friendly and helpful and price of beers and food is surprisingly good value for the area. Food is also excellent. This pub is a gem and all involved have got things just right. Long may it continue

A busy lively pub with a great range of real ales. Not only is there quantity the quality is of the highest standard as well. This pub is run by people who know how to look after beer!
From memory there were 10 ales available including Siren Dinner For 2, Camden Town Gentlemen's Wit and Camden Hells and Mallinson's Chinnor. The Dinner for 2 and the Camden Hells were both very good!
The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. There's an aquarium in the pub which is a novelty. A lack of music means conversation is encouraged. I ended up chatting about Dover to a fellow drinker who regularly visits the town for a spell of fishing.
This pub is not to be missed if you are in the Old Street/Angel area.

Little gem of a pub in an area which is not short of watering holes. Whereas a lot of other establishments in the area are fairly mediocre to say the least, this little place shines like beacon on the horizon.

Situated with entrances on both Baldwin St and Peerless St and in very close proximity to Moorfields Eye Hospital this split level bar maintain the look and the feel of a traditional family run free house which is somewhat a rarity for Central London.

Great range of ales on tap and a real cider to boot. Only stayed for one which was an offering from the Summerwine Brewery in Yorkshire. At 5.5% this went down quicker than Paris Hilton on video camera!

This place also seems to be free of the groups of boring, pretentious spoilt little rich kids trying to be all out there hipsters that pollute the nearby pubs of Hoxton and Shoreditch with there stupid hair and clothes and their match thin roll ups of old drum. Long may this continue!

All in all, a great pub with great values!!
