Our first time out for dinner in 4 months and it was wonderful! You made it all feel very near to normal and respected the new rules at the same time. All 4 of us looking forward to coming again.

All was great. The panacotta maybe needed a little more flavour or richness but that is being very picky.

Fabulous pub and superb food. Friendly staff who managed the current Covid restrictions spot on. We had really lovely lunch in great location and felt very Covid safe. Have already recommended and will be going back.

Underestimated our bike ride up a 3-mile climb to the pub by 30 minutes so kitchen should have been closed but they fully accommodated the 6 of us with delicious food and attentive service. The ride back took 10 times less. The bill was a little pricey for the size of portions but the quality of ingredients and their presentation probably make it value for money, and it was nice to know we were supporting a business get back on its feet. Recommended.

Lovely to be able to dine at the Rock, service, food all excellent. Wish we had asked to sit on a larger table because despite all having a reserved sign on them (hence we did'nt ask) no other diners arrived whilst we were there. Did'nt spoil.it though, Dan was a real pleasure and a pro, as were the serving staff.. until next time then!

My sister and I had a lovely lunch in the garden. The pub had been very well planned and we received a friendly welcome with the staff coping very well with all the changes they have had to make to keep us and them safe. Super atmosphere and food, we will certainly be hoping to go again soon. Thank you all.

Very welcoming and happy to have a dog too. Only marked down on atmosphere because Covid makes everyone a bit subdued. Thank you. Great lunch
