Loved the food - loved the decor - great staff

We had an early tea at Papa Rock. I loved this place with lots to see around the walls, ceiling, shelves etc. Albums, singles, drums, motor bikes, helmets, t-shirts and lots more. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a real fire stove. It was snowing as we sat looking out of the... read more

We have visited Papa Rocks a few times a week for the last 2 winter holidays to Aviemore with our dog Alfie the Kerry Blue Terrier. Most recently last week commencing 21.2.15. We have always found the friendly owners and staff excellent and they offer an efficient service (we have never been rushed away!) Our dog is always made very... More

We were initially quite impressed with papa rock, the decor and the feel of the place is quirky, warm and inviting. We were advised to book a table as it would be busy on a Saturday night and when we phoned we were told they only hold tables for 10 minutes so we couldn't be late. We thought this was... More

Good welcome. Big portions nachos fajita starter was huge. Kids meal good value for money. Was disappointed with burger, looked the part with all the trimmings but the burger paty itself was not beefy/homemade. When I mentioned this lady was quite aloof and said it was Aberdeen Angus! Well maybe 5%!. If you like big deep fried portions then this... More

Have eaten at Papa Rocks two years running. The menu is wide enough to suit different tastes and everything is well prepared. Service was friendly and efficient. Lots of cool record covers on the wall - I have deducted a point for calling themselves 'rock' and playing Abba!

We had two visits to this restaurant this week. Both occasions were enjoyable. A major plus side is they are dog friendly and whilst only allow one dog at a time, it worked so well for us as our pet isn't too happy with other canine company, meant we could relax. The staff are so friendly and helpful and we... More

Kids enjoyed their kids meals and husband was full after his fajitas. Will be back next time we visit the... More

Attended with family and food was of good quality and large portions as previously described. I really wanted to highlight that the staff without exception from someone who I assumed to be the owner / manager through all the waiting staff were as genuinely helpful, friendly and pleasant as I have experienced anywhere. They chatted without being intrusive and were... More

Lovely friendly staff, food average but a little on the pricey side. We went here as not booked in anywhere and these could accommodate us.
