I was disgusted to arrive at this establishment to find it covered in a pro-Brexit banner. It’s unacceptable for a business to support something which damages its customer’s livelihoods! When I went inside, the rooms were dirty and food overcooked. The staff were also rude,...More

I don't mean 'old school' in an offensive way at all - a lovely place with friendly, welcoming staff who were chatty and kind. A good choice for lunch, with all dishes priced at £8. I had the corned beef pie with chips & gravy....More

About
Description
Your hosts Paul and Jennifer Taylor extend a warm welcome to you here at The Rock. The former winners of the Enterprise Inns National Pub of the year competition have put their plans to emigrate More down-under on hold. Having taken on the tenancy of The Rock in July, they have completely refurbished the entire hostelry throughout. We offer an elegant, well stocked bar, choice of real ales, interesting selection of wines and some old fashioned soft drinks which all catch the eye as you approach. The menu is comprehensive, predominantly fresh food based, catering for both those on the move lunchtimes, as well as those who prefer to linger. Our specials are innovative and changed regularly.
