Sir Alexander Fleming was a loyal regular. Legend says that it was mould spores from this ale house which blew through Fleming’s window, leading him to the discovery of Penicillin in 1928.  The Fountains Abbey derived its name from: "Fountains" - nearby sites of early known springs and wells; "Abbey" - Westminster Abbey possessed the manor of Paddington during Saxon times.
