Real Ale Ray left this review about The Fountain Inn

A good traditional and well kept pub, with a respectable clientele. The interior was carpeted throughout, traditional upholstered banquette seating with matching chairs and white painted rendered walls. Four handpumps serving Holdens Golden Glow, Robinsons Dizzy Blonde, Wye Valley HPA and Abbot. We went for the HPA which was in great shape.

Quinno _ left this review about The Fountain Inn

A former Banks’ pub, this is now opened-out and modernised but a cosy place nonetheless; white grey and purple colourings (yes really, but it works), pub carpet, ice lighting. Very friendly barmaid, great banter for the two minutes she sorted our order out. GBG 21 listed with three cask offerings over five (I think) pumps – whether this was a deliberate reduction to help turnover or simply running out, there was at least a guarantee of freshness and my Wye Valley HPA was close to perfect (NBSS 4.5) – other ales were Castle Rock Harvest Pale and (oddly?) GK Abbot. Really bustling atmosphere and I enjoyed my stop here.

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).
