Bed & Breakfast – special offers for 2018

Bed & Breakfast offer 1: Book Saturday, get Friday or Sunday half price

We love our B&B guests at the Geese and Fountain, so often it’s true that people arrive as customers but they leave as friends. We’d like to encourage you to spend a little more time here, so for the next three months, we’re offering a half price second night for any booking of a Saturday night B&B stay. So if you’re coming to attend a nearby wedding, or to visit Belvoir Castle or to watch the waterfowl at Rutland Water, why not make a weekend of things? Don’t just stop for one night and rush off again in the morning. Enjoy a great deal on a second night, and give yourself time to relax and unwind in the beautiful surroundings of the Vale of Belvoir.

Bed & Breakfast offer 2: Book a 3 night weekend, we will buy you dinner on your first night for FREE

Come for a full weekend, for any stay of 3 nights or more that includes a Saturday, and we will buy you dinner on your first night here to say ‘thank you’ for being our guests. Any dishes from the pub menus, including specials, can be ordered, up to a value of £30 per person.To qualify, mention this offer at the time of booking, and book the full B&B stay AND a table for dinner on your first night. We will then pay for your dinner, meaning you only have to pay for your drinks!


Both offers can be used by solo travellers, couples, or groups up to 4 people. So if you’re thinking of a weekend away, and you’d like to take advantage of either of these offers, please email us or call 01476870350. Again, these offers are only available if you book with us direct, not through online travel agents such as booking.com or expedia.

Both these offers are available until the end of March, subject to availability.

Burns Supper – January 26th 2018

This year’s annual Geese and Fountain Burns Supper – commemorating the great Scottish poet Rabbie Burns (and providing us all with a cracking excuse to drink whisky and eat delicious food) – will be on Friday 26th January 2018.

Last year’s Burns Supper was great fun, and this year promises to be even more fun – with the great Bill James joining us to provide a bagpipe accompaniment to the proceedings.

Guests will be piped into the pub at 7pm, and will take their seats for dinner to commence with the Selkirk Grace at 7.20pm. After the starters are cleared, the traditional ‘Address to a Haggis’ will be recited as the Haggis is piped from the kitchen and presented to diners. Following the remainder of the meal, guests will enjoy the ‘Toast to His Immortal Memory’, the ‘Toast to the Lassies’ and the ‘Reply to the Toast to the Lassies’. If you’d like to volunteer to recite or perform some of Burns’ work during the evening, please get in touch.

The full menu is below, with classic Scottish dishes including a vegetarian option for every course. Book now.
