    First time visiting the restaurant, added bonus that it's dog friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful. Even enough to give some vegetables to the dog. We shall be returning.

    Bit of a mixed bag for our group….really good mussels (amongst the best I’ve had), a good fillet, alongside a pretty bad rump. Steak cooking was hit and miss. Bread basket/board was a cheap baguette, at the same time as the lemon meringue pie was fantastic. Service was good, the guys were working hard to do a nice job. We had a really nice table in a private room (The Library) which we hadn’t asked for which was a nice treat. Wine list was pretty basic but a good selection of beers to choose from.

    The food was so delicious and definitely worth every penny. The menue has variety of meals and very good deals. The dining experience was nice, lovely to eat in in the evening with the glow of lights and the fire going creating a peaceful atmosphere. We did have to wait around 40mins for our main courses after we had starters but was assured by my dining guests that they have never experienced that before so I do understand that things can happen and our mains came out freshly cooked and very delicious anyways. Definitely recommend!

    When we arrived our table wasn’t quite ready so we ordered a drink whilst we waited. The restaurant was extremely busy but the staff were doing a fabulous job. Once we’d been seated our order was taken in good time and our first course arrived quickly too. The food was amazing, great value and the staff were friendly and accommodating even though they were all very busy. We will definitely be coming back.

    Good service, food hot on warm plates. Well cooked A tad annoying that table we had was a bit drafty as by the door, but fire was lit so not too bad. The £16 menu was good value for money.

    Really excellent meal out. Our first time at the Rock and Fountain. We went on Tuesday so chose steaks from the steak night menu plus starters. Very tasty ribeye steaks perfectly cooked. Too full for deserts. Hannah, our waitress, was lovely. Will be back!
