It took an hour for starters to arrive and even when we asked if someone could check how long it would be, no one got back to us. I understand it sometimes happens but our frustration would of been eased by someone communicating with us. When the starters arrived they were just placed in front of us without asking which plate was for which person.. only a minor thing but added to frustration. No cutlery given for mains and then only one set and then steak knife arrived after. Food however was amazing and the staff very polite. Would of definitely of tried a pudding but felt pretty fed up by the end of it. The outside wasn’t busy but wasn’t sure of inside so hard to say why such a long wait. Would definitely like to return and give it another go because of quality of food.

We weren’t the only dinners to find a certain member of staff rude. They were unorganised we changed our booking they claimed we didn’t although I had proof which showed they didn’t update it their end. they had a member of staff in training which they left to go it alone meaning it took 15 minutes to get a drink. The starters were the best part you had no choice but to cook your stake while eating it on the rock as there was no where to put it pointless in having a sauce as you couldn’t put it over the stake as it would cook and evaporate. The desert was hard chucked together and looked like it just came out of the fridge the presentation while a supermarket dine in meal deal desert is presented better. Have emailed a complaint but just like their customer service on the night It’s poor as I have got no reply.

Fabulous service and amazing food as always. Covid measures in place are the best I've seen in a pub/restaurant so far. Would 110% be coming back again (is my girlfriends favourite place to eat anyway) and would recommend to anyone.

TBH we booked here because we didn’t know the area and wanted somewhere we could book online so we wouldn’t get stranded without lunch. Loved the warren like pub although initially a bit daunted by the size of the menu and prices (I.e. big menu often means reheated bulk food and it looked a bit pricey for that) but we were proved wrong and it was one of the best meals I’d had in ages. I had ribs which were as good as they could possibly be, but the side salad and onion rings (Recipe please- they were like where onion ring meets doughnut in a good way) were absolutely to die for and my husband will tell you I’m really hard to please :-) The only drawback was they had the awful middle of the road bland mix tape that so many pubs and restaurants had on. A minor fault and first world problem I know but (ironically) everywhere I go, Crowded House and co always seem to follow.

Having been told there would be a 40 minute wait on our food we were prepared for a wait however after getting our starters after about 40 mins what we weren’t expecting was another 1 1/2 hours wait for our main and I suspect we were forgotten about!! The staff were apologetic but we had lost our appetites! Not sure we’d come again.

Service was a little slow, though this might have been because they were busy. They did apologise for this. In saying that the food was excellent and there was plenty of it. The menu had lots to choose from. The restaurant was in lovely surroundings. Would definitely recommend.

The BEST steaks we have had. The 4oz rump steaks on the children’s menu were incredible and cooked perfectly (medium rare). Really impressed. We will absolutely return.

Absolutely fantastic food and service. Great value with the discount but worth every penny at full price. Already rebooted for Sunday lunch in October with more friends.

Very slow service, waiters prioritised a larger booking and we were left waiting an hour for our plates/trays to be collected. Would’ve ordered desert but didn’t fancy waiting another hour

We sat on the edge of the terrace however smoke from the smoking area kept blowing towards us which wasn't pleasant! This did spoil our meal a bit. The black rock steak was melt in the mouth as usual though ...delicious.

The Black Rock Steak was very good, I highly recommend it. The starters could be improved, the Calamari rings were mediocre and the sauce on the chicken wings was too overpowering. The waitress was delightful and went the extra mile. An enjoyable visit for our party of six, well done.
