Fabulous fun venue. Whether it's for their now and then wine tastings or every weekend music nights. Big screen rugby or just the plug in and play Sunday's. Great vibe. Good food. Lovely people.

Our summer holiday just isn't complete if we haven't shared in a Sunday afternoon jam session at The Rock. Besides supporting local talent, where else can you rub shoulders with someone who took part in the original Woodstock (Dave Marks). Love his stories!

What a little gem! Nothing fancy , slip slops and shorts place. Small menu that is so inexpensive. Value for money and calamari, fish and prawns were delicious. Well worth a visit for a cold one.

I certainly give them 5 stars for service. Friendly. Efficient. On the ball. Food was ok- not brilliant but by no means bad. Great to catch some live music Thank you to staff for looking after us.
