The guy that greeted us as we walked in was really welcoming, the bar staff clearly knew their stuff and the food was brilliant. We chose not to eat at our hotel as it was a bit stuffy and cramped in their restaurant so come to Ricks where the food was better, the atmosphere was relaxed with great service

How do you review somewhere that tries so hard to please, has helpful staff that you really like but at the same time you can not ignore the old decor, squeaky floorboards, and shabby room. I really enjoyed our stay here and for the price it's on the button value wise, but it does need updating and there are a... More

This place is fabulous. Had a very late lunch/very early dinner last Saturday and it was brilliant. I had one of the best lasagnes I've tasted in years, and friends all had fish. All fresh, great portion sizes, good value for money. Staff are brilliant as well. So friendly and obliging. Definitely be back.

we had looked at the rocks a few times but never tried, we discovered a friendly atmosphere with a array of specials on the board, try the sizzling pig if you get the chance, the staff are very helpful and attentive, half bottles of wine are a rare find, but handy when one person is driving.

This was our first visit to The Rocks for a while. Same warm welcome and great grub. The only thing that struck me was how it's beginning to look a bit tired and in need of a makeover. It has an odd smell these days too. Noticed it on our last few visits. A kind of musty smell which I... More

The food here lives up to its reputation ; the starters in particular were very good - the mains were well cooked with excellent potatoes and veg and large portions. Desserts varied from outstanding to good Service was cheerful helpful and knowledegable and the ambience in the restaurant was pleasant- bubbly but not too noisy

The Rocks is quite special... excellent food, a lovely ambience and great staff. We visited for St.Valentine's, our meal was delicious and not overly priced. Well worth a visit!

Superb food and even better service at this restaurant within a hotel (I normally avoid these as places to eat as, given the captive audience of residents, often hotels don't try very hard with their food). We were able to order in an unconventional manner, mid-afternoon, a selection of 5-6 starters that we ate tapas style. All dishes were great,... More
