The Fountain Inn is a 15th century Inn and is situated at the foot of Cliff Street
by Shilly Ally 'Op and is believed to stand on the site of the first recorded settlement
of Mevagissey which was then known as Porthilly. Mevagissey once boasted 20 Inns,
Taverns and Ale Houses, but the Fountain Inn is known as the 'Father of them all'
as it is the oldest public house in the village.
A true local public house which welcomes visitors from the local community and also
those from farther afield. The Landlord, Billy Moore, has run the pub since 1982
and together with his partner Lynn Porter and their team supports many community
initiatives. They are passionate about offering good food and a welcoming atmosphere.
Facilities include two bars, a restaurant and two bed and breakfast rooms.
