“Perfect location”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely evening meal and going again tonight. The location close to the sea is perfect. Good place to have a drink at the bar and then move on to the meal. The food and wine selection was fantastic. Well worth a visit. Good value too.

“Sea View Restaurant in Lynmouth”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We dined in the restaurant here on a Sunday night. The restaurant was full but we still had excellent service. The food was good and well presented and the wine was reasonably priced.
You can dine in the bar or outside in the summer but try and get near a window in the restaurant for a relaxed evening meal.

“nice lunch spot”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

My husband and I were hungry and tired coming off the SWC trail well past 2pm, so we decided to eat at the first halfway decent looking place that was still serving lunch. The Rock turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. I had veggie lasagna, which was quite good. My husband had the fish and chips, which he enjoyed. The service was friendly and timely; the seating was clean and comfortable.

The garden looks like a lovely spot, overlooking the harbor, but it was too cold to sit out the day we were there.

“Great location”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We dined at The Rock House on a grey damp spring evening...and were cheered up by friendly staff and tasty food! We were a litte early for dinner, but were offered a drink in the bar, giving us time to peruse the menu and time for the kitchen to open!

The main menu selection was good, with a couple of specials thrown in. And given its harbouside location it felt appropriate to try some seafood. I had the salmon and my wife had the scampi. Both were plentiful and tasty and we decided to sample their desserts. And although these seemed to be pre-prepared they were pretty good.

We'd go back to The Rock House, when we're back in Lynmouth

“nice surroundings”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Staying nearby and this place was recommended, nice place comfy n great location but food was bland and served way to quick,no sooner had we sat down with our drink n our food was there!!!! We did expect more as the place looks like it would serve up tastier dishes but was sadly disappointed.Staff were friendly though.
