The Fountain is situated towards the southern end of London Road, just by the milestone.
At the beginning of the 20th century it was a small country 'spit and sawdust' pub
The Bodley family were licensees, first William then his son Charles.
Hospitality wasn't then only service offered to local residents. There was also a slaughter house behind the pub. Don Foxley tells more about this in his story.

During the 1930's Captain John Harrison became the licensee and took the pub up market making "the Hotel which is different". Don Foxley and Frank Daniels tell more about the aeroplane trips bringing custom to the Fountain around this time

After the second world war the Fountain reverted back to being a small country pub, but without any spit or sawdust. It was extended during the 1970's
1968 1976
By 2000 the roof had been thatched and the pub had become one of the Harvester chain of restaurants
