First of all, the staff were lovely and ensured we enjoyed our meals and we were having a pleasant time. Secondly, the food was delicious! I had the pan fried salmon main and I loved the sauce is was in. It was the perfect portion size. I would definitely visit again.

My wife and I were staying locally and had a lunchtime meal and an evening meal. Both meals were excellent. The hosts were very welcoming and made recommendations on the menu. The local beers were excellent. The menus are interesting and contain locally sourced food. The fish I had at lunchtime was one of the nicest pieces of fish I... More

The Rock is a wonderful taste experience. The Chef's passion for presentation and quality ingredients go hand in hand, making a perfect balance. After an impressive first visit I came back here several times for the individually prepared dishes which are so full of flavour. Tender lamb with seasonal vegetables was so good that I soon returned for the same... More

The food is very good, if expensive. Sadly if the chef was half as good as he thinks he is, his food would be twice as good as it is. Don't dare ask to change any part of the meal because the chef considers that each meal is perfectly balanced and doesn't care what the customer thinks.

We use to eat here often, and then had a bad experience the first week the new owners took over which was some time ago now, however we thought we should try it again, its been redecorated but has lost a little of its rustic charm, my understanding is the husband cooks and the wife is front of house, food...

Another tasty meal at the Rock Inn. Every mouthful is delicious. And the portions are certainly not stingy. The owners were very friendly as usual and even though they were serving a busy Sunday lunch they still found time to show me the newly decorated rooms. I would definitely stay at the Rock Inn and look forward to another fab... More

Rock Inn is a great local pub, better than it has ever been in the fifteen years I have been living in this area. Lovely location and friendly service with a chef who understands the importance of good fresh ingredients and the wrecking ball effect of the microwave oven on anything worth eating. It should be busier than it is.
