Wonderful atmosphere even though a quiet Tuesday evening. They lIt candles on all of the empty tables which we thought was nice and added to the ambience. Sensational seared salmon starter, great coffee, reasonably priced.

We visited 9 years ago and booked again based on found memories. It was even better this time and we will not leave it another nine years before we visit again. Jon and Kate

Excellent meal. A little slow bringing drinks to the table at the start of the meal but the restaurant was busy. Highly recommend eating here. First class food!

Service was very slow. Food was not very warm. Requested steak to be "medium" and was served rare.

Quality of food was high but very little quantity. Ordered J2O but got provided a different drink without being told. Child meal said it had Parmesan but this never came. I left very hungry after starter and main meals so a very disappointing evening experience.

We have decided there is only one place to eat near our home in Bovey Tracey where we get a quiet environment (thanks to carpets - so no grating chairs) excellent food and friendly service. That is the Rock. We'll be back soon! Carolyn Malden

One of those rare ones where you arrive feeling peckish not really hoping for one thing or another and then BANG! The food was off the scale! Whitebait best ever! Smoked pheasant breast lovely then we both had the Hake main, simply you could have been in the best restaurant anywhere and still have been blown away. Extraordinary, well done everyone.
