The Fountain Inn in Mevagissey is a 15th century pub, and is situated at the foot of Cliff Street by Shilly Alley ‘Op. It is believed to stand on the site of the first recorded settlement of Mevagissey, then known as Porthilly. Mevagissey once had 20 pubs, taverns and ale houses, and The Fountain Inn is known as ‘The Father of them all’ as it is the oldest pub in the village.
The pub has two bars. The first is the ‘Smugglers Bar’, with its tales of smuggling illicit rum and brandy. This room was used as a pilchard press in the 18th and 19th centuries. The large illuminated pit in the floor was used to store the valuable fish oil, and the holes in the walls held the beams for the presses.
The front bar has been slightly altered over the years, but the oak beams, slate floor and fireplace are all original. Food is available in the bars during lunchtime from 12-2pm and in the evenings from 6pm-9pm. There is a wonderful range of fresh seafood and prime steaks available.
Children and dogs on leads are both welcome.
