‘Oldy Worldy’ Sussex Charm

It doesn’t get more atmospheric than this, with its 16th Century archaic charm, blooming trellis archways and a countryside pond – a splendid example of a Sussex dining and drinking at its best, brought to you via owner Alex Tipping.

Imagine low beamed ceilings, a cosy cavern of rooms, solid farmhouse tables by the fire and wonky floorboards that have been part of the setting for many years and you will be on your way way there.

The Fountain Ashurst is definitely a wonderful venue to discover if you haven’t yet ventured to this part of Sussex.

    Visited The Foiuntain Inn in Ashurst last summer for a beautiful wedding. Had an amazing time with family and friends and the venue was stunningly decorated with a relaxed atmosphere. 🙂
