Alan & Michelle welcome you to The Fountain Inn and Lodge in Parkend
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.
Rural charm, real ale and hearty country food
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 even stock locally produced wine. Our extensive menu features locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible, with a range of bar snacks, sandwiches and meals available throughout the day with food served in the pub or our dining room.
