The Fountain – Reinvented pub

For years, there was a lack of decent spots for a drink and a bite to eat before or after a trip to the cinema at Fountainbridge – that all changed with The Fountain.

The Fountain used to have a bit of a reputation as not-the-classiest joint in town, however a few years ago it reopened with a completely different atmosphere and clientele.

The decor is quirky; items such as old fashioned suitcases and wooden clogs decorate the windowsills and ledges.

The menu is fairly traditional for a pub with the usual fish and chips, pies, etc. but with a bit of a twist. The portions and quality are excellent. There is also a good selection of craft beers and ciders on the menu as well as a decent wine list. It is an excellent place to try some newer Scottish beers such as WEST or Innis & Gunn.

The sofas and armchairs in the bar offer a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere for relaxing and catching up with friends over a pint. The dining area is in a raised area to the side of the bar and can get a little cramped at the weekends.

The Fountain is a great stop for food and drink, whether or not you’re headed to the cinema.
