Visited here for the first and last time on a Saturday evening, and was pleasantly surprised by the place itself, very cosy and traditional in décor. We were soon to be disappointed however by the food itself. My garlic mushrooms were served in a watery greasy sauce with no real taste to it, quite wishy washy. Husbands' thai fishcakes were...

I eat at the Rock regularly as I'm lucky enough to live nearby. It's by far the best little pub for drinks and food in the area. Home cooked food which never disappoints and friendly staff. Very often there's a live pianist which creates a lovely ambience and the free tapas on the bar on Fridays is a really nice... More

Visited this pub a week ago. Although we live local we always seem to travel towards the city for food. This time we were glad we decided to choose local. Fantastic staff who are very welcoming, we were a tad early for food so we were offered a drink in the "snug" which was very, umm, snug! Lol Great menu... More

Visited with eleven others. Food was excellent and served very efficiently and quickly. Would recommend this place to everyone. It is well worth a visit. Easy to find and plenty of parking. Friendly waiting staff and bar staff always smiling.

First visit was as a works lunch, now go there most Thursdays with my wife. Always a good menu with a variety of meals and they also do bitburger alcohol free lager. This is not fast food and is well worth the wait

Have been here quite a few times over the years, always been happy with the service and quality of food served. The beers are always well presented ( I love real ale) and all in all a very clean and presentable place. The owners are very approachable having travelled extensively but I did find the one bar person quite aloof,... More
