I loved it (but my mean family made me mark it down)

Went with the missus and in-laws. I found the staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. My food was lovely, not a huge plate but that is the way I like it.(The family said they wanted more but their steaks were so good they did not mind the price or the amount on the plate).

We visited early evening and found just one other table occupied, but still had to wait 50 minutes for our food. The steak was over cooked and a mass pile of chips wasn't enough to distract from that. At £16.90, you'd hope the premium would give the chef an extra pair of hands to speed up service and cook the... More

Having seen a couple of bad reviews since its revamp we were a little unsure, but I am so pleased we went. The minute we walked in we were greeted by a member of staff and shown to... More

Went here at the end of March with the family for my birthday. It was a Sunday lunchtime carvery and the food was excellent. The staff were extremely kind and helpful and had no objection to my daughter decorating the table and bringing in a birthday cake for me. Thanks to you all.

We went to Flaming Jacks (The Rock) for my birthday, which just happened to be on a Wednesday. The food, as usual, was fantastic! To make the evening better my good friend turned up unexpectedly and then Ian and his team also joined the 'party' to make it a very enjoyable and memorable evening.
