“Great volcanic rock experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Went on a groupon voucher which was incredible value for money.
The prawn cocktail starter was massive and full of prawns. The crab salad starter wasn't so impressive in size but still nice.
The fillet steak was brilliant. My companion had the steak and prawns - this was a trickier meal to cook. The prawns are more like langostines and must be butterflied straight away for them to cook through. This is where it gets tricky and I suggest you ask for an extra plate so that your steak can be put on this so it doesn't continue to cook too much whilst you're wrestling with the prawns. In fact I too asked for an extra plate in order to put my steak on it.
The chips were nice and the salad was fresh.
Neither of us had dessert, so can't comment on that.
Service was excellent.
The chef has an idea of what gluten free is.
The downside is the pub needs better ventilation because when there are multiple volcanic rock steaks cooking it can get very smokey. Consequently, I really wish to go back and eat again but only in the summer when I can sit outside and be sure I won't get too smoked out!

“Love the black Rock steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Been here twice now for the black Rock steak nights (Tuesdays)
Steaks are of the highest quality and on the special nights the price is also fantastic, buy one get next one for £1
There's nothing better then eating a steak fresh from cooking on a hot rock.
Very filling meals with sides of chips and salad.
Great atmosphere busy pub.

“Disappointing food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Pie without substance, service slow and steak not tender. Chips not made with real potato. Expensive too for the hyped up quality and award-winning food sources.

“Lovely meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I visited Wareham as this is also our surname, we went to the Quay Inn and was extremely pleased with our meal. Well presented very enjoyable and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly but left you alone to enjoy our meal. We will definitely be back when in the area again. Thank you.
