I use the Rock reasonably frequently to take my 87 year old Mum out for lunch. The menu is fairly predictable pub food (jacket potatoes, sausage & mash, fish & chips, corned beef pie etc) but it is always well cooked, delivered promptly and with a smile. If you are looking for 'designer dishes' then this will not be for... More

From the moment I entered the hotel I was greeted with the warmest of welcomes and hospitality, the hotel is a traditional pub from the 18th century, the landlords are amazing, recommend any to stay here. The surrounding countryside is brilliant so if you are looking for a weekend away with great walks this will be the place

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
