Have been trying to get to this restaurant for ages as had heard such good things and I wasn't dissapointed. 2 courses for £12 was great value and although hubby had steak (extra £3) wa still very reasonable. Trio of fish I had for main highly recommended it included a huge piece seabass. Wonderful service even though it was pretty... More

Me and my wife have visited The Rock & Fountain twice now with a third visit booked for tomorrow. The selection is fantastic and the price sure isn't a indication of the quality at only £12 for 2 courses it's amazing value. The steaks are some of the best I've had and we've always been treated well. My only word... More

Lunched at the R & F for the first time today and will return at some point. So why only 3*? Our food was as good as many others have described. 1 x Lamb Chops and 2 x Trio of fish. Three delicious desserts. Inc. wine, £45. The service was excellent. Good food and value for money. My gripe is... More

Went for a meal with my friends and team mates tonight and I have to say I will definitely be dragging my other half here for a meal, because not only was the price reasonable but the food was to put it politely to die for. I had Pork Loin with Garlic and mushroom sauce and roast potatoes. Also for... More

I visited this restaurant for the first time last night and I was very impressed with the food and the service provided. The Calamari starter was delicious and the sea bass with salmon main was perfect, all at amazing value at just 12 pound for 2 courses. I will be back!

I usually thank people for leaving reviews either good ones or not so good but I won't in this case! I'm always curious about reviews that are done by people who have only posted two reviews and the other one being a restaurant that I was associated with a couple of years ago. I'm sure if you said your steak... More

Fabulous food and very reasonable price tag - two courses for £12 on a Saturday night! I had the steak on stone, which means you cook your steak yourself on a hot stone at your table. Very cool. Service was good and overall very pleased with food and value for money. Will visit again!

Rang late one Sunday morning from Bristol and we were given a table for six, although it was booked for later on, that was fine, the homemade soup was delicious, the mushrooms were good and the crab was also very good. The Roast beef was gorgeous, the service was good, the prices were good and everyone was happy
