First visit....great welcome in a real pub from the mid 1700’s. Atmospheric, great cask ales (old peculiar was superb). Food was brilliant too, good service and large car park. Might stay here one day.

I called in with my daughter just before 5 so she could have her tea after finishing her shift at a local employer as I thought this would be a lot better than McDonald's we had the week before. How wrong was I. To start with I ordered the meals and i wanted a tap water which apparently has been unavailable for at least 2 days but funnily enough the soft drinks n cordial dispenser that work's with water still worked and obviously the glass washer did. U can buy one sir from the fridge!
Anyway I ate here numerous times over the years but today's was to say the least possibly the last the pub wasn't busy so you'd expect a pretty good quality meal but I'd have been served a better meal if the food was sourced from farm foods and I'm talking breaded chicken fillet at this moment. My daughter had sausage n mash that I left me feel that we'd have got better quality at McDonald's! When I asked if they had salt n vinegar I got it's over there. Do service is 1/10 and quality 2/10. I never thought the Rock would end up this shabby ! Sorry guys you've fell a long way

I visited the Rockingham Arms on the evening of 23 August 2019. I usually enjoy visiting and am a regular but I was particularly disappointed on this occasion. As the weather was nice, the pub was busy but there did not seem to be many staff working. I had to wait a long time at the bar to order food - bar staff were slow and more focussed on chatting. I eventually placed my order and once I had done so was told there was around half an hour wait for food. I pointed out they could have told me that before I had ordered. When my food came, I was disappointed. Portion size was small and presentation was bland. The bacon in my burger was fatty.

I was also put off by a group of people ‘vaping’ (I, amongst others, were sat outside in the garden eating). Whilst it wasn’t smoking in the conventional way, having plumes of vapour clouds drifting around you whilst eating was not pleasant.

So all in all, I left feeling disappointed.
