I arranged a party for my family at the Rock December 13th 2014. We would all like to say a big thank you. The meal was lovely and I was so pleased I didn't need to take pre orders, it was a very relaxed atmosphere and it was lovely to see the staff enjoying themselves they were like extended family...

We were staying in a B/B just up the road so decided to have an evening meal here. Pub was fairly quiet. we decided on our meals which arrived quickly, big portions!! Everything you would expect from an out of town pub. My bitter was a bit cloudy, so asked for a replacement which was changed immediately.

We have visited The Rock previously but always just for drinks. On Friday 15th August we thought we would try the food and opted for the 2x fish and chips for £10 deal. It duly arrived indicating cooked to order, was beautifully presented, a generous portion and friendly service too! Although stuffed we treated ourselves to pudding too. Unusual for... More
