I booked my parents a meal at your restaurant for their wedding anniversary. I then paid over the phone for a bottle of Prosecco to be placed on their table as a surprise. My parents thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the value for money at your restaurant, however they did not receive the Prosecco. Not only was I charged for... More

Six of us went out for dinner at the Rock and Fountain. We were all very pleased with our meals, and the price of 2 courses for £10. Good service and a good atmosphere, but you need to book in advance. I'll definitely be going again.

The food really is top quality, alacarte and very good value for money. I can honestly say that I would expect to pay a lot more than what we are charged, ok the venue gets very busy, sometimes the wait times can be a bit on the long side but the food is consistently excellent. I would like to see... More

We tried this restaurant/pub tonight after we had many rave reviews from our friends. To be honest the food was very good and exceptional value at £10 for two courses. What spoilt the evening was that we were sat with a group of 30 ladies in a separate room upstairs. I believe it was a female choir saying goodbye to... More

This was our first visit. The lunchtime menu was priced at 2 courses for £10 and was terrific value for money. The food was well cooked and the staff were great. I would strongly recommend this place for anyone that wanted terrific value for lunch. There was also a good choice to choose from.

We popped out for an impromptu celebration lunch and opted for The Rock and Fountain on a friend's recommendation. We both had the incredibly good value set lunch menu - £10 pp for 2 courses or £14.50 pp for 3 courses. There was a good selection of menu choices for all three courses and everything was beautifully cooked and presented.... More

Ate lunch here today for a family birthday. Having read the reviews we went with an open mind and must say we were extremely impressed. One of the first things you notice about a weekday lunchtime is how busy it is. Luckily, we had booked because I don't think we would have got in. There was a nice buzz of... More
