This pub stands head and shoulders above anything else in the vicinity.
An absolute treasure, good independent traditional pub but run by a landlord with an eye for the modern drinkers who clearly takes pride in his pub and is interested in his clientele.
Up to 8 ales on hand pumps and tasters readily offered and a massive range of unusual canned and bottled beers.
Excellent food menu, cooked in a kitchen adjacent to the bar. Tasty, good value too.
Siren Suspended in Rainbows 4%, Market Bosworth Autumn porter 5%, London Pride 4.1%, Moor Raw 4.3% (unfixed), Oakham Citra 4.2%, Redemption Rock the Kazbek 4.1%.

14 keg beers on sale last Friday mostly priced around the £6-£7 per pint mark (although the Hardywood Kentucky Christmas Morning was £9) and 6 cask ales all priced around £4.20 per pint (three of which were also on sale when Blue Scrumpy visited). I tried the keg Chorlton Lemon Brett Sour which looked disgusting but tasted sublime. The planters on the roof terrace could easily have graced the concurrent Chelsea show.

I agree with all the favourable reviews. One extra point: I like the feature of showing names of all the beers, source, ABV and price big and clear on a blackboard.
You know what you're ordering with no nasty surprises waiting.

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.
