About the Pub

The Geese and Fountain is a traditional village inn easily found on the A607 in Croxton Kerrial, offering a wide selection of local food and drink, a quiet and welcoming atmosphere, and accommodation. There is no juke box or fruit machine, but occasional live music and a monthly folk club supplement the hum of conversation. Dogs, children, cyclists and walkers are all very welcome.

There are no permanent beers, but six local breweries always feature:- Oldershaws' Belvoir, Brewsters, Oakham Ales, Grainstore and Nobby's, together with a number of guest beers from other local microbreweries. There are 5 hand pumps.

In addition, the Geese and Fountain offers locally brewed lagers (currently Brewsters Helles and Nobby's Pilsner) in addition to Freedom Four, three kegs of local craft beer (currently Oakham Ales Export Stout, Charnwood American Pale Ale and Shiny's Wrench) and a number of local traditional ciders (currently Hallaton Bottle Kicking Scrummage, Torkard Cider's Floppy Tabs, Charnwood's Bradgate Hunter, and Churchill's Spalding Scrumpy). There are a wide selection of bottled and canned beer, a fully organic wine list, and food made fresh from local ingredients including geese, chickens and turkeys farmed in the village of Croxton Kerrial itself.

Having re-opened after a long closure in 2016, the pub is listed in the 2017 Good Beer Guide, and also offers seven en suite B&B rooms. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are served every day, and pub games including darts and cribbage always available. A large beer garden provides outstanding views over some fantastic countryside.
