Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

It was very busy so perhaps that was the reason it was so noisy but the food was good value and at this time of year with beautiful weather there were a lot of holiday makers in

“Keeping up the high standard”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

It continues to surpass itself in the quality and quantity of the food.
Just been informed the owners have now taken over the old Salthouse in Porthcawl and re-named it the Ship and Castle and first reports are that the place is also excellent.
Will be visiting shortly and will give me opinion.
Keep up the good work - the Rock is the best value for money in Porthcawl!

“Great food at great prices.”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Just spent 4 nights at Trecco Bay caravan park. The Rock Inn in Porthcawl serves really nice meals at fantastic prices. We ended up eating there every night. Highly recommended.

“Food ok, but unfriendly staff and no atmosphere.”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Been here quite a few times. The food is ok but not high quality, but it is cheap, so I guess you get what you pay for. The main problem is unfriendly staff that are not very helpful. Went for a meal last week, having stayed away for a while, will not be returning again.
