Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Fountain Inn

Canal-side pub, and certainly the most interesting feature of Tipton's undistinguished High Street. Looks pleasingly traditional both inside and out, having a partly opened-out layout featuring a 'L'-shaped bar and a narrow lounge on the other side of the central counter. With four of the seven handpumps in use when I stopped by, I found Wainwright, Abbot, Wye Valley HPA and the Holden's Golden Glow (£3.40, but a bit 'end of the barrel' which is a bit disappointing for a GBG-listed establishment).

Friendly canalside pub that features in the 2019 Good Beer Guide. Good ale selection today. Hook Norton crafty series Sundial, Arkells Spring Hopper, Wadworth Burnt Orange IPA and Elgoods Saturday night Beaver along with their regular Greene King Abbot and Wye Valley HPA beers. Beer garden through the pub, and canal seating served with plastic glasses .

Historical associations with the Tipton Slasher - blue plaque on pub, monument over the road.

2017 Good Beer Guide Entry. Classic pub furniture around a single bar. TV with football with sound on low. Wadworth 6x amongst the choice of 3/4 real ales on and it was in superb condition.

Tidy, traditional pub.
