I visited the Rock & Fountain for dinner one night during my business trip to the area. Parking is in an elevated car park to the right of the premise, and then there are 30-ish steps back down to the inn. This was no problem for me, but some may find this more difficult. So remember to drop them at... More

We came to the Rock and Fountain on Wednesday 14th in the afternoon and was greeted by a very friendly waitress! Nothing was too much trouble and the level of service was outstanding! The food was delicious and the desserts were to die for!! Will definitely be returning to this establishment very soon!

We booked a table for four looking to have a nice meal and a glass or two of a nice wine. The reality was of the most inept levels of service, poor quality steaks which an eight years old could have cooked better and a wait of over half an hour for coffee and don't even ask about the length...

Acp we are truly sorry for the poor food and level of service you received last week. We had a rogue batch of sirloin which we have sorted out with our supplier but the poor service is inexcusable. Obviously we have lost your custom which I am unhappy about but if you do ever decide to give us another try... More

Went here for our Christmas works meal. I was not looking forward to going, as had heard and read some very mixed reviews. The whole place was very busy throughout the evening. We were in the upstairs part. There were some good and bad points to the evening. Waited a long time for our orders to be taken, the service... More

A friend and I visited after I had visited with family in early October last year. We were greeted by a lovely gentlemen behind the bar (the butcher!) and were served our drinks then shown our table. The staff apologised for the door being open but explained that they had just lit the fire and it would be shut soon... More

Over 30 of us attended a Sunday Lunch to celebrate my Grandaughters first birthday. The food and service was fantastic, the upstairs room was ideal, thank you.
