We had roast beef which was...

Not the first time I've eaten here, so we decided to eat here again for a Special Valentines meal. On arriving here on a cold miserable February evening it was nice to find a warm and cozy bar/Restaurant area and a warm welcome from the bar staff. After having a drink we were shown to our table, we were sat...

Decided to take the wife out for a meal, could not decide where to go as a few choices locally. Chose The Rock Inn as i know it has a good reputation. Well i wasn't disappointed, the service was second to none, and the food was sublime.
