The Fountain is a charming, traditional 200 year old village pub in the heart of the Forest of Dean, offering bed & breakfast as well as self-catering group accommodation in the Fountain Lodge. We provide a welcoming atmosphere to both locals and visitors to the area, with the Dean Forest Railway bringing steam trains almost to our door. Step into this atmospheric country pub to see an incredible range of interesting artefacts and tools filling every corner, with many relating to local crafts and history. Or try your arm at the local game of Quoits. Our aim is to provide a warm welcome to all of our visitors. Children, dogs, cyclists and walkers are all well catered for, both inside and outside in our beer garden. The Fountain Inn also has step-free disabled access and facilities. We serve a number of real ales and our extensive menu features locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible. We have a range of bar snacks, baguettes and meals available with food served in the pub or our dining room.

Couldn't be in a better setting. Forest of Dean beautiful at any time of year. Fountain staff are very friendly, helpful. Carvery excellent. Puddings delicious: it's very hard to choose just one!

Tips:

Bird watchers would love being here. Lots to watch in the Forest of Dean which surrounds The Fountain.

Fantastic little inn with excellent food and super friendly and helpful staff made our short new year eve stay memorable and thoroughly enjoyable!

Tips:

We travelled with our three dogs so the convenient access to the woods at the rear of the inn and the short walk to the local green was just perfect! Beware of dusk though as the evidence of the wild boars in Parkend is obvious so keep dogs on leads or close by . There’s plenty of local walks, nature reserves and ponds ideal for longer walks too .

Another enjoyable stay. As always a lovely welcome, lovely room and lovely food. And as always spotlessly clean and superb service throughout my stay. And dog friendly too, fabulous. Thankyou to Michelle and her brilliant team.

Tips:

The local village shop is across the road with a (dog friendly) cafe and another bigger (again dog friendly) cafe just down from the steam train staion, also across the road. A nice peaceful area.

Great little hotel.Will definatly stay again when in area.Good food and friendly staff. Would have been nice to meet the owners at some stage but perhaps they were away!

Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Drinks in bar were a reasonable price, breakfast excellent and there was an extensive evening meal menu - wise to reserve as the tables fill up very quickly every evening!

Been calling at the pub for many years and is one of my favourite. Pub itself is a proper pub which we enjoyed. Beer is always reliable and kept and served well. Only drawback was the standard of the breakfasts which we thought was very disappointing and the reception on arrival for breakfast was not particularly welcoming

Staff couldn't do enough to help especially regarding a disabled guest. Couldn't find any tourist leaflets on the premises but perhaps I missed them. A map of the forest would help if made available to guests to keep with them.

Would advise obtaining tourist interest leaflets at any of the various locations etc. FofD railway; Speech House; Taurus Crafts. Otherwise, investigate on the FofD website.

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us, we do have an large selection of tourist leaflets at the top of the stairs leading to the first floor bedrooms which you would have missed being on the ground floor. Such a shame we didn’t realise you wanted them as we would have been happy to bring you a selection to your room. Hope you found your way around the sites.

Tips:

No need to go anywhere else for food it’s awesome, we were only here for one night on business before moving to another hotel which was a pity as the second hotel was a big disappointment and if the Fountain had been closer to our next location we would have continued our stay. Definitely coming back again in future.

Room 3 was nice and large with an excellent cupboard / wardrobe. good bathroom facilities with a powerful shower. The bed, however, needs replacing or at least the mattress. Comfortable seating could also improve the room with a small table.

Tips:

The area has plenty of eating places. Parkend has a cafe and three pubs/ restaurants to choose from.if you have a dog with you there is is a wooded area directly behind the Fountain Inn. Lots to do and see in the area whether it is walking, cycling, visiting historical buildings and lovely towns. Gloucester is a superb city to visit. The Dean valley railway would suit any rail enthusiast.

I've stayed at the lovely Fountain Inn several times, always a warm welcome, nice rooms, comfy beds, hot showers. Is really dog friendly with water bowls and treats. All the staff, bar, kitchen and housekeeping are great, always a smile and super service. The coffee is good and the food delicious. Looking forward to my next visit.

Tips:

Nice walk through the woods behind the inn. Across the road to the steam train (dog friendly). Has a museum, shop and cafe at Norchard station. Post office/shop has a cafe and the cycle cafe both 2mins walk are great and both cafes are dog friendly. Taurus craft shops and garden centre in nearby Lydney and a nice park there too. Locally a weak or no mobile signal (forested area) but there are hotspots. Wifi is good though.

We had a lovely stay. The staff are welcoming and very friendly. We booked the family room, which was spacious and clean with a view of the forest. Fab location: there's a gate in the garden giving direct access to the forest behind; the cycle hire shop and train station are less than 5 mins walk; there's cricket on the village green and of course the Forest of Dean is beautiful.

Tips:

Ask for a table to be reserved for you if you want to eat at the pub. Dean Forest Cycles just round the corner have a wide range of bikes - hire an e-bike for the day. It's brilliant! No effort at all. The Family Trail is traffic free and takes you past Beechenhurst Lodge which serves food all day.

My 4th stay, so comfortable and welcoming. The rooms are lovely, comfy beds and big fluffy towels with lashings of hot water. Nice touches with bottled water and shortbread biscuits to have with a cuppa. Oh, and fresh milk readily available too. So thoughtful. Michelle and all of her staff are so kind, thoughtful and so helpful, like remembering if you want extra hot water with a pot of tea. Being vegetarian I was offered plenty of choice/suggestions off the menu, a big plus. Thankyou. And talking of breakfast the porridge is delicious and you don't feel rushed, a very pleasant start to the day. And my dog was able to stay with me at breakfast having a table laid up in the bar. Another big thankyou. The Fountain Inn is super dog friendly, bowls of fresh water and a fire to laze away the evening by, doggy heaven.

Tips:

Check out the steam train, fabulous, and Parkend station is just two minutes walk away. Pretty villages all around, plenty of walks and the back of the Fountain has lovely walks into the forest (you may even see a wild boar). Chepstow castle (dog friendly) is very easy to get to (spacious car park), and from there go onto Tintern for the Abbey (also dog friendly), lovely shop, pub across the road, and walks along the river Wye..

Fountain Inn is an excellent choice of place to stay in the Royal Forest of Dean. The staff are friendly and the drinks and food are excellent. The Inn has been improved over recent years by Alan and Michelle and is the best public house/inn in the Forest this year.

Tips:

As well as the Fountain Inn there are a number of other pubs and inns in the area. These include the Miners Arms at Whitecroft, the Rising Sun at Moseley Green and there is also an excellent India Restaurant in Lydney, called the Saffron Balti - bring your own alcoholic drinks.

The food is delicious and beautifully presented and I'm looking forward to my next stay. What was great is that I could have breakfast in the bar area so that my dogs could be with me.

Tips:

Very dog friendly village, on the edge of the Forest of Dean, with lovely walks. The steam train station is just across the main road, is also dog friendly, they have their own tickets at £2 each and can go into the small railway museum at Norchard too where there is also a lovely cafe with plenty of outside seating. Tintern, with the beautiful Abbey ruins, is just 30 or so mins drive away.

Absolutely fabulous! A family run hotel were every member of staff are all great local people with time to chat and helped make sure we enjoyed our stay. We booked a twin room and had the benefit of being on the ground floor with two doors to give direct access to the street and to the hotel reception (perfect if wheelchair access is needed). The hotel and The bar, restaurant, bedrooms and outdoor areas all so nice. An extra bonus is that the historic Dean Valley railway is next door. We want to visit again and allow more time to enjoy our stay even more.

Parkend is a lovely village set amongst forest areas. Endless activities for any everyone and yet its all so peaceful and un-commercialised.

We are in the EE network and we didn't have signal either - not their fault of course. Apart from that, location is fantastic, we have 2 meals plus carvery there on the Sunday which was excellent. Highly recommended and we are hoping to stay there again soon.

I have already given you an excellent review on trip advisor. Very little to criticise. Cleanliness, food, tea and coffee making facility, bottles of water and other little extras all appreciated. The staff were excellent - equal to anywhere we've stayed.. The accessibility to Whitemead camp was perfect for us as we had family staying there.We we're aware of some traffic noise but that couldn't be avoided.The food was very good,one of our group had a tough steak and gently complained she was offered a coffee or dessert etc but declined, the complaint was handled very well. Two of our party booked an extra night so that speaks volumes.

Tips:

The weather wasn't marvellous but there's quite a lot to see around the area. Symonds Yacht is a nice visit. We had a stop at Taurus craft centre for coffee and a browse. Lovely area for walks and cycling.

Thjs was my third or fourth stay at the Fountain. I would not return if I wasn't impressed by the establishment and its staff. That said, breakfast was a bit chaotic, on all but the last day of our stay (when we appeared to be the only guests) but I think this was largely the fault of guests not adhering to their stated timings, rather than the staff of the inn .

As a former inhabitant of the area it is difficult to single out any particular attractions. However the Dean Heritage Railway and the Heritage Centre at Soudley are essential 'ports of call' for any tourist.

Superb break - we were there for a short mountain bike break at the Trail Centre, and the Inn was a perfect base. The rooms were fine, the food great and the staff were brilliant! friendly, attentive and even allowed us to store the bikes in the cellar overnight. We would certainly recommend the Inn for this type of break and will return next time we use the Forest. Great value as well.

Very comfortable place to stay. Rooms spacious, very clean, comfortable bed and food is good. Staff are excellent. When I'm in the area, this is my choice for somewhere to stay. I prefer it to other bigger hotels.

Tips:

Always try the guest ale in the bar - it's never failed me yet.

Very friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and good interaction between staff and also between staff and customers. Appreciate the safe storage of our bikes. A drying room would have been helpful for us (particularly for our boots) as we were mountain biking and the weather was not the greatest. This is not a criticism, but would have been useful.

Tips:

Lots of off road cycle/walking trails on the doorstep including a mountain biking trail centre and family cycling routes. Great place for bird spotting and steam railway enthusiasts too.

Thank you for your lovely comments, good idea regarding the drying room, not sure how we can make one but I'll certainly have a word with my husband, if anyone can think of a way it him. If ever you need your clothes washed and dried while you are here we are happy to do that for you, nothing worse than putting on damp clothes again ! Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Michelle

We stayed with our dog and were given a ground floor room with own front door. I have mobility issues and the room was fully equipped with wet room and disabled facilities. I was very impressed with all of this and clean room with everything we needed. A disabled parking space was also available right outside the door! All excellent - thank you very much!

Tips:

Lots of walks and interesting geology and industrial relics to discover in the area.

Very warm welcome, comfortable quiet room and adequate facilities. Very pleasant staff, excellent food, wonderful ale and price was very reasonable. If you want a bustling place with lots of gimmicks go somewhere else. But, if you want somewhere comfortable in a nice area and just to chill out - the Fountain is highly recommended.

Tips:

Don't just put the village in the SatNav 'cos you'll possibly have problems finding the pub; use the post code. Try the guest ale.

Fantastic family pub with really friendly staff and great food. Spotless accommodation. Our second visit and certainly not our last.

Tips:

Perfectly situated for access to the Forest of Dean. The pub is only a few hundred yards from the family bike trail which takes you directly to the mountain bike trail centre. The pub has a bike wash and secure storage and a great selection of beers to rehydrate after a days riding.

Unfortunately the mattress was very noisy - try lying down on it and then turning over. Apart from that our room was excellent with that storage cupboard to tidy away all our photography equipment, reference books etc.

Tips:

We were in Park End for the wildlife so the little woodland behind the car park was great for us to see dippers.
