Now keeping guest ales and they seem to be popular.

So the pub survived.... one landlord bought his partner out. Sensible move as this is def not a two jags establishment. The decor has improved considerably and gives off a far less threatening aura. A woodburner now helps create a pleasant comfy feel during the winter. Beerwise.... not a lot on offer for the ale fan. In fact it has even let its bottled ale selection dwindle. Guinness has now gone from draught to one of those electronic canned dispenser gizmos..... No bad thing because their draught was undrinkable in the main.
This pub will survive, primarily because the owner is a frugal chap with, it appears, no real aspirations for the establishment to flourish beyond it's role of catering primarily for a friendly but small bunch of regulars. That said, it fulfills that brief extremely well and harks back to a time gone by in the sense that it is a true "local" pub with a fairly young at heart feel. Whitstable has lost a myriad of such local pubs over the years.... there used to be at least one on every terraced street's corner and The Fountain and it's neighbour The New Inn are quite literally the only survivors in the residential part of Whitstable's conservation area. These two pubs complement each other very well indeed, each catering for different markets amongst the locals.

I am happy to report that since your last visit the Fountain has become a very enlightened pub. On my visit earlier today they had no fewer that 56 real ales....on draught. These included Double Diamond, Long Life, Umbongo-Lite and Fray Bentos, which as far as I am aware is the only beer in the world made from corned beef.

I had a glass of tap water. It was ace.

Been to the pub last weekend and the only real ale on offer was Masterbrew and Green king IPA in bottles...
There are no handpumps!

Friendly bar staff though.
