Excellent night at the Rock Inn, haven’t been for awhile, but well worth the trip out. The food and the service were first glass. My highlight was the “feathered” Aberdeen Angus beef.

Country pub. All our food is homemade using local produce where ever possible. We have a childrens menu and welcome dogs in the bar area on a lead. Some of our rooms are dog friendly as well. Lunch and dinner reservations are recomended although not always necessary.
