Food and service were all really good. The bar area was very noisy because Wales football match was on. Hopefully next time we go (which we will) it will be quieter.
Really pleased there is an a la carte menu available as well as the excellent value of two course for £12.

Service was friendly and helpful but a little slow - particularly the arrival of our food once ordered. Also, chutney that was part of my dish was missing though quickly rectified when I mentioned it.

Nice atmosphere and pleasant seating area to sit out in during the good weather.

Good food - all three meals . Tasty and nicely presented

Will return for further meals.

Food was good, but menu was not as good as before. Had to wait 20 mins for starter, but weren’t in a particular rush. Still great value & will return.

Food quality was great and value for money. Service was fantastic.
Only negative was having to walk through a rowdy bar with locals just drinking and no masks... Also smokers sat in eating areas who were vaping... Puffs of smoke.. There is a smoking area provided.

Went for a meal with our son who we hadn't seen for ages.
Greeting on entering was excellent and made us feel welcome. Taken yo a table. Gave our drinks order which was brought out quickly. Gave us menus and left us to chat and decide on our food choices. Came back after 10 mins. Gave our order. The food is made to order and is fresh. When it came out it looked awesome. One lamb, one sea bass and two salmon and crevats. Food was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. There was no rush and everyone felt relaxed and enjoyed the meal and ambience of the R&F Highly recommended.

Had a lovely family meal. Food was really good. Service was a bit slow but it was busy & it didn’t spoil our evening or wouldn’t stop us going again.

We went there this weekend and the weekend before. The experience was much better last weekend :
- I ordered a halloumi burger and the halloumi was missing
- My husband had the stuffed camembert breast chicken and the Camembert was missing
They kindly sorted my burger though.

We visited on the bank holiday. The location is nice with several options including, indoors, outdoor shaded benches/ tables with umbrella roofs. The property is quite big, with a good amount of parking space. The food options were also quite a few and good value for money. The only negative part was extremely slow service/ though the team did check-in frequently if we needed anything. The only thing was that they never gave us a heads-up on waiting times. So the drinks came after 10-15 minutes of wait, starters came an hour after the order was placed, and main courses arrived after an hour and a half. Otherwise, all good, a family/ dog-friendly place (outdoors).

The food was beautiful as per usual. We had to wait along time for our starters and main course. We also made a drinks order and had to wait 50mins to receive our drinks.

This is my third visit in one week, customer service is excellent they go above and beyond and are very tentative popping back and forth to the table to see if we need any drinks or anything else, the food is first class every time, whenever I visit it’s absolutely packed but that doesn’t affect the customer service, a massive thank you to the Rock And Fountain, the chefs and the team you’ve got everything spot-on

We used to love The Rock and Fountain . Sadly we won’t be returning. The food was awful . The burger came in a french stick instead of a bun ! Was rock hard you couldn’t bite into it ! The chips were so old and brown , looked and tasted like they were from days ago . The pate came with rock hard bread too ,! They need a new chef or they will loose all of their loyal customers soon .

The food was delish and the dessert was the shining star. Only small issue was that we didn't get our drinks until half way through the main meal but other than that the actual seating outside was stunning and we will definitely be returning!

Food was very good. Quick service and overall very pleased only thing to note is the lad bringing out the food bought cutlery for puddings held by the part you eat off and not the handles. Wouldn’t put us off going back but others might in the situation. We noted this to the girl that too the bill.
