Came here on New Years Day with 2 friends. Everything was fantastic from the food to the service. The meat was amazing! Big shout out to the chef Anthony who went out of his way to make me mash potato. Thanks for a great visit. Will definitely be back

The very famous Gibraltar Rock has always been a great place to visit, and the reason why - it's because it really is great! The very tasteful recent refurbishment has even added to the experience. The food, the service and the atmosphere is the reason why they are top dogs in terms of Sunday dinners and fine dining. Please go...... More

I visited with a work colleague after a busy day. We were both starving and the Carvery definitely filled us both up. Very good value

We visited this well known local bar/restuarant for a carvery. It is only £7 and the meat (a choice of beef, lamb or turkey) especially was top quality. A good choice of veg and lovely big Yorkshire puds with tasty gravy. Serves a decent pint and the views of the sea and priory make it well worth a visit.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and were a little worried if they'd be too busy focusing on the carvery and not the average menu but we were very wrong! The food was fantastic! There was three of us in the party and we had the vegetarian lasagne, steak and ale pie and the fish and we were all impressed.... More
