The heart of any village is the village pub, and the heart of the Geese & Fountain is our bar. Whether you live locally, are staying in our B&B rooms or are just passing through the area you are welcome to join us at the bar for a drink or two.
Having re-opened the pub in 2015 after it stood empty for over three years, we were delighted to be selected for inclusion in the very next CAMRA Good Beer Guide. We’ve been listed in the Guide ever since. In 2018 we were awarded the “Pub Of The Year” title by our local Vale of Belvoir CAMRA Branch, a title we retained in 2019.
We serve only the finest in locally brewed ales, lagers and ciders. All the beers served on the bar are brewed within a 40 mile radius of the pub, often at award winning breweries – the East Midlands is well served with quality ales. We also have one tap on the bar serving a selection of European imported lager, currently the Czech Pilsner, Budweiser Budvar . You can check out what beers we are currently serving by using the Real Ale Finder app on your mobile phone or on this page on our website.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: As we are currently unable to offer service at the bar, all orders must be taken at your table. We strongly recommend downloading the Real Ale Finder app to see what beers we have available both before your visit and while you are with us.
Then we have an extensive selection of bottled and canned beers from some of the top breweries in the UK and abroad – from established classics like Westmalle trappist ales and Flensburger lager to the up-and-coming Wild Weather Ales, craft beer artisans like Siren and Weird Beard, and local brewers such as Linear Brewing from Bingham and Brewstes in Grantham. You can download our beer list for more information.
Our wine list is sourced from organic vineyards across the world. Working with specialist wine importer Vintage Roots, we have selected wines of real flavour and character, many of which are low in added sulphur. Vintage Roots also undertakes an extensive carbon audit of the transport methods for their wine, and funds environmental projects to offset the carbon impact. Our wines are therefore ‘carbon neutral’, making them a guilt-less pleasure. Download the wine list to read more about what’s on offer.
As you’d expect, we also offer something a little different on our spirits shelf. Organic whiskies, a list of 100 gins from both local distilleries and others from all over the world, vodka from Market Harborough and even a locally distilled Absinthe are all available.
We haven’t forgotten the drivers or those who simply don’t enjoy alcohol. Alongside the locally produced Belvoir Fruit Farms fruit presses, Fever Tree tonic and soda and Fentiman’s traditional soft drinks we also offer the more familiar Coke, Pepsi and J2Os. We also have a number of quality alcohol-free or low alcohol beers and ciders, including Bitburger Drive, Erdinger Alkoholfrei and BrewDog Nanny State.
