The Fountain (Newmarket, England - Dining)
182 High Street, Newmarket, CB8 9AP
Phone: 01638 666255
Type: Share Chinese food amongst the Newmarket sales and racing regulars
Jumping into a taxi and heading to one of the many characteristically English pubs in the villages surrounding Newmarket for a pint and bite to eat is the most rewarding experience after a day at the sales. But for those staggering out of Tattersalls when selling finishes at 10 p.m., it's more practical to nip across the High Street for either an upmarket chinese at the Fountain or visit its thai-themed neighbour Sangdao.
The Fountain's staff have patiently witnessed many high-spirited and truncated celebrations prompted by racecourse or sale-ring success at a restaurant that has long been a favourite with the top local trainers, jockeys and bloodstock agents. For those who can't face tackling the extensive menu and wine list, choose a set meal (make sure duck's included) with chinese beer, round the night off with an Irish coffee or two and you won't go far wrong.
