Incredible cosy countryside pub with some history. Delicious, always fresh food delivered from local butchers and fisherman. Very friendly and polite staff giving the guests "space" to enjoy meal and environment in the pub or in the nicely located garden.

A meal at The Rock is always a pleasure and consistently good. When my family come down from London they always insist on coming here!

Had been recommended and it was all I expected. Lovely pub, lovely food, great service and atmosphere. The Sunday roast was good - not the best I've had hence my 4* ratings - but more than good enough to go again

Exceptionally good. There were 8 of us and the service was friendly and efficient. It was toward the end of a long service and still the staff was cheerful and accommodating. The food was superb - I wished I could have had nearly everything on the menu!!! An excellent lunch and we look forward to coming back. A five star experience.

The pub was not busy yesterday but it still took ages for hungry kids to get their food, this made the experience less enjoyable than it should have been.

We visit The Rock every month or so and have always had an excellent meal in a relaxed environment. Our visit on New Years Day was well up to the high standard we have come to expect. Happy New Year to all!!

Everything about our stay was excellent from the room, to the food and the staff, who could not do enough to make us comfortable. It was a sadness to leave.

It was a very nice meal and excellent service. I have always liked the Rock, since I played rugby with Adrian Deane who was the owner a long time ago. Sunday was as good as ever- well done!
