We went to The Rock after reading some excellent reviews. The decor is lovely and we were warmly welcomed and shown our table. We weren't offered drinks so had to go to the bar ourselves. We ordered the garlic mushrooms to start and were really disappointed. Undercooked mushrooms in a milky sauce accompanied by a tiny piece of bread. The... More

We were going to book a table due to local reviews which were excellent. Then we noticed at the bottom of the online menu they cannot cater for allergies. Although they are open and honest which is great I fear that with other local pubs/restaurants/hotels catering for allergies they are going to fall behind their local competition. My wife is...

Just returned from a 3 month business trip and stayed in "The Rock", about a mile from Blackwood. Wonderful owners and staff. Very comprehensive help-yourself continental breakfasts, good, "honest", home cooked food from a comprehensive menu. (Try the great pepper sauce with the rib-eye, Caribbean chicken or the bread and butter pudding.) Excellent local and "guest" beers. (But) perhaps best... More

We arrived at The Rock which we had chosen because of it's location being so close to Maes Manor where we were attending a Wedding. There is Plenty of parking at rear, we were greeted by Jennifer the owner who showed us to our rooms after arranging an early lunch for us as we had to leave quite soon to... More

Where do I start? I travel extensively throughout the world with work and this was indeed a business stay. From being greeting me in the car park with an umbrella as the Welsh weather was once again being predictable, to my room with everything (and I mean everything...) you could possibly ever think about needing - my stay was one...
