“Good food with marvellous view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Straightforward restaurant with marvellous view over the estuary. The food is good and with a varied menu. The service is friendly but not perhaps a little unsophisticated but who cares when you have good food with such a view. Make sure you go when the sun is shining!!

“Classic seafood dishes. Fantastic views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Eleven of us visited Rock Inn again this holiday. They were very accommodating in changing our booking time and numbers. We sat inside near the glass doors ....what a fantastic view! It always amazes us. Very friendly staff who provided excellent service. Scallops were tasty, sweet and beautifully cooked. Enjoyed the lovely Cod au gratin. The fish and chips were delicious, very tasty with the Tribute beer batter. All meals were hot and freshly cooked.

“excellent food and wonderful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is a fabulous bar and restaurant. It has a terrace upstairs so that you can take in the view of padstow across the water and eat great food at the same time. Very reasonably priced and the staff were wonderful. We were down there on holiday but wish we lived nearer, we would be there all the time. The best thing of all is that it is very dog friendly both inside and on the terrace. Great place.

“Beautiful and Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Ate here in May 2013. A lovely sunny lunch on the balcony with friends was absolutely perfect and very reasonably priced. With food and a location like that, you cant go wrong.
Thanks!
