If you're looking for a truly Scottish experience then look no further than the Rocks! The food was lovely and portion sizes very large! The service was impeccable and we got free tasters of top whiskys and cognacs. I would return here any day of the week!

Went with family for a few days at The Rocks to celebrate New Year's Eve. We had a fantastic room overlooking the sea and rocks and the coastal paths that wind round the headland leading towards amazing sandy beaches and of course lots of famous Golf courses. The food at the hotel was excellent and not enough praise can be... More

we just had our work christmas do here last night and I just wanted to say a massive thank you (again) to the fabulous staff. We had the private room (seating 16 of us comfortably), which was beautifully set out and very festive. The food was excellent, lots of it and very reasonably priced but what makes this place so...

Absolutely fabulous lunch today for a group of 16 ladies. We had our own private function room, which was perfect for a group our size. The service, as usual was outstanding, as was the food. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Cannot praise The Rocks highly enough. A place to return to again... More

Myself and my partner stayed at the Rocks in their luxury room this weekend and there is only one word to decribe our stay.....EXCELLENT! From the moment we arrived until we left we recieved a first class service. The room was clean, modern and the jacuzzi bath and balcony made it for us. Food in the restaurant was first class...

Great food and service, been three times now, same quality and service every time, the menu has good local dishes and serves excellent fish as a restuarant by the sea should, the location is superb, I recommend a walk along the cliff top walk to build your appetite, its worth it.

You won't be disappointed in your stay here. We arrived late but the staff were only to pleased to help us with our luggage; they also suggested dining in, and as it was rather late so we decided to try the restruant. What a wonderful meal! The food was excellent and the dining staff very friendly. We tried the seafood... More

We have visited The Rocks many times. It is a great pub restaurant with excellent food, large portions served in a convivial atmosphere with windows overlooking the rocks and sea. The rooms - there are 12 of them are well kept, clean and all have great views - again overlooking the sea and rocks towards Dunbar harbour. The Rocks has... More

5* is for the food, bar and staff rather than the rooms. The restaurant is splendid and justifiably the #1 in the restaurant reviews of Dunbar. Great selection of dishes including fresh local seafood at very reasonable prices. We visited on a Thursday night and the dining rooms (4!) were very busy with locals who generated a great atmosphere. Nice... More

Our anniversary fell on Saturday and where else did we wish to spend it? Our favourite restaurant of course 'The Rocks'. I had already telephoned Jimmie Findlay to reserve 'our' special table and we had a pleasant journey down from Edinburgh as usual although the day was cloudy and rainy to start but brightened up in the afternoon. As usual... More
