The food was awsome the lamb and peppers starter i could have done as a main as well it was fantastic. We had sirloin steak for main and it was cooked to perfection with the most amazing hand...

Have visited a few times and have pre-booked on each occasion. Good welcome on arrival, immediately seated and order taken promptly. We have enjoyed all the food. Half a duck is what it says it is. Value for money in a very pleasant environment.

First visit was awful. My meal was good but my partners meal (pork) was just fat....no meat at all! On complaining my partner was given a free cup of coffee! .......hardly fitting for not being able to eat the meal. Second visit a few weeks ago was a different matter. Same meal ( pork) but absolutely delicious......high praise for chef.... More

We've been a few times under different owners but have to say the Sunday lunch we had this week was the best meal we've ever had there. We will definitely be returning. 2 courses for £10 or 3 for £14.50 I believe. We had to take our dessert home as we couldn't eat our 2nd course after the wonderful roast... More

First visit to the Rock and Fountain following a recommendation from a friend, it won't be our last, in fact we booked again for next week whilst we were there. The restaurant is in a nice location, is pleasant and well decorated and the staff are very helpful. Plenty of space between the tables but you certainly have to book... More

We went to the restaurant for an 18th birthday meal. The meal was beautiful. I chose the spicy lamb to start and salmon for main course. The presentation was as good as any high class restaurant, the portions exactly right and the taste was amazing. The price for the two course meal was what shocked me ten pound! We were... More

I have visted the Rock and Fountain many time, all equally as fabulous. Their meals are amazing quality and value for money! People moaning at how expensive drinks/sauces and other extras are obviously have never tried to run a business before! HELLO TWO COURSES FOR £10 isnt that value enough?! They have to make a profit somewhere. The staff are... More
