Visit to New Restaurant

This was a new Restaurant to us and we went as we saw a report in the Local paper The ambience was very nice and the choice of lunch menu quite varied with good descriptions.

Heather managed to squeeze us in at short notice on a Friday night. We have eaten here quite a lot and it never fails to disappoint. The calamari starter was amazing and a huge portion. My partner loved the spicy lamb starter whilst my 11 year old chose to have cheesy garlic bread as a starter, this was the biggest... More

We ate lunch at the Rock and Fountain a few days ago. We had heard glowing reports about the place and they were not wrong! The 2 course meals are advertised at £10 each. I had the lamb for starters and main meal and I have to say the food was excellent and the whole meal was very good. Total... More

We arrived as a party of six and were seated in a private room, which was lovely. I'm a Peskatarian and I found the menu to have a lovely amount of fish dishes and a lovely vegetarian option (of which wasn't the same old-same old vege' dishes as you usually find on menus). Waitresses were lovely and very attentive. I... More
