Was really looking forward to this unique dining, and booked it as the last night of 4 at Potters, as it was our anniversary that day. We just paid a supplement on Potters bill (in advance when we booked) and paid separately for wine and drinks. Food was good. Starters were nothing special, but the main event, the meat, was...

Always book Black Rock & Grill for the Wednesday evening, it's a unique evening for dinning with friends. Staff always very attentive and keep the meat and fish topped up. Looking forward to our 2016 holiday.

I really enjoyed my visit. Completely unique concept, high quality food and friendly/helpful staff. Definitely will come back in the future. Outdoor seating review below is not necessary as it would not work for this type of meal.

I have been to Black Rock 4 times now and every time the food, the service and the atmosphere - all perfect! You will never leave this place hungry or dissatisfied! Choice is great, and I love the novelty of cooking on a hot rock! The only thing is the price, that might scare some people off, but you get... More

The biggest problem with the restaurant is the slow speed, and lack of extra bits and pieces. If you choose the exotic meat menu, then your initial plate of raw meat is quite small, and on our last visit wasn't even that exotic - wild boar and buffalo, and although when your raw meat supply runs out they happily provide...

We went there for a family night out. It is a nice place with great staff. But it is not my idea of a nice meal. The novelty of hot plates and cook your own food on a plate covered in salt. Is not great. Yes the food is all fresh and the meat nice and lean. But at £35... More

Visited The Black Rock Grill as heard about the 'Hot Rock' experience here. Definitely did not disappoint! We turned up not knowing what to expect and we were blown away! The waitress was perky and clearly loved her job from her excitement about serving us. You get bread for an appetiser and then starter, main and dessert. We were expecting... More
