The Fountain Inn is a family run business and it has been since 2010 when the property was bought, totally gutted and refurbished. With no previous experience in the industry, we pride ourselves on what we have achieved and the the reputation that the Fountain Inn maintains. The Fountain played a big role in the Rebecca Riots and we are located opposite one of the two commemorative stones that were placed on the sites of the toll gates that were attacked in Pontarddulais in 1843. The attack was planned in the Fountain Inn by the leader or Rebecca, Daniel Lewis, a local weaver, who lived with his parents in a cottage beside Goppa Chapel, which is a very short walk away. Please see our website if you would like to know more about the Fountain's history with the Rebecca Riots and we also display some memorabilia on our walls within the restaurant and bar area.
