We ate here the previous week after arranging to meet with some relatives over from Montreal. Everyone thought the food was fantastic and the staff were so helpful and accommodating. We were so impressed that we booked into one of the rooms the following week on our way back to Yorkshire from the Isle of Skye. I'd read mixed reviews... More

Auf Empfehlung unseres Vermieters haben wir dort Geburtstag gefeiert. Super Essen und ein genialer Blick von Tisch 2b aus. Our landlord recommended us this restaurant to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Food was amazing and we had a nice view from from the table 2b.

This restaurant provides you with class, atmosphere, it's very romantic.....but most important, the food is excellent. Been a few times and every time as good as the other. I'm going back in two weeks with family for my wife's 30th and can't wait, they have been extremely accommodating. You need to try this place out

Our evening meal was excellent, beautifully presented and great value. I opted for a half lobster that had only been landed a couple of hours earlier, so it had a great texture and taste. Cask ales on... More

Our third visit in three months. First class service (Thank you James), excellent food and a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. The menu is interesting and varied, step-mother really enjoyed the fresh lobster and for me (vegetarian) an interesting and unusual choice (I get really fed up with veg lasagne & mushroom risotto being offered elsewhere). In summary, a topt place, we'll... More

2 mums, 2 daughters training for The Moon Walk talked the rest of the family into walking with us with the promise of dinner at The Rocks. Set off from Haddington and walked to Dunbar, really cold and windy day and arrived at The Rocks to a roaring fire....bliss. The welcome, as usual, was warm and very friendly. We had... More
