The ambience is lovely and the waiting staff are pleasant and friendly, however this place is either really understaffed or terribly inefficient. We waited an hour for our starters and another 30mins after that for a main. We requested an additional food item which never arrived. Having been thrilled to see so much vegan choice on the menu, I was disappointed by quality. The pea fritters were over cooked and really greasy. I wouldn’t recommend or revisit.

We have dined at The Rock and Fountain on many occasions. We were so pleased to see a pub that was well supported. The pub and its staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was plentiful, good value and of satisfactory quality. We were disappointed not to find calamari on the starter menu, but look forward to it returning soon. We did find the music too loud and intrusive for a peaceful lunch, but maybe it suits other clientele. We look forward to returning at the beginning of August when we have another table booked. Thank you for making our dining experience so welcoming.

Beautiful meal for my birthday, went with my family and the food was lovely but the service was very slow, we turned up at 2pm and didn’t get out until around 5:45 we were waiting between 20-30 minutes per course. Only 4 of us had a starter so the people who just ordered mains had to wait an hour for their food. The children’s came with the starters so the children had to wait over an hour then for dessert which I think their food should of came out with the mains. At the beginning we asked for the kids menu 3 times which should of been given to us at the beginning when we came in. I have been on numerous occasions and I have to say this was by far the worst service I have ever received and I was very disappointed. Chips came hard so they had to go back to the kitchen so my 2 family members were not happy with this. I am really not sure whether I will come again for a while as it has upset me as this was my birthday and was very excited to come back.

Lovely venue, surroundings and staff all great. Food tasty, fresh and plentiful. Will definitely revisit and would recommend.
Small note in that as a first time visitor, car parking signage not completely clear. Wasnt too much of an issue as we were early and plenty of space.

We enjoyed our meal at the Rock and Fountain. There is an extensive menu with prices to suit all pockets. As it was a warm evening we sat in the garden area. Staff were friendly and the food was good.

One meal wasn't served as described on the menu. Sixties music playing in the background didn't add to the ambience.

Our first time. It was very busy and lively but the music selection was good even though it seemed to be turned up as the evening progressed! Bit concerned that a group of 4 drinkers were sitting at a table adjacent to ours & their language wasn’t great. Couldn’t drinkers be seated away from eaters? Thankfully as the noise in the room increased this was drowned out. We were very impressed with the food. Hot & plentiful. One of our part is a Head Chef (not local!) and there were no complaints! The service was great especially from the lady with the very blue smiley eyes. So pleasant. All in all a great time was had after a long lockdown.

Myself and daughter had Sunday lunch, two courses for £14. Both the starter and main course was lovely, we both thoroughly enjoyed. Service was great also, nothing was too much trouble. I also like the fact that we ate at 4 p.m. which is not offered by a lot of restaurants. Would definitely recommend.

Eaten here before and will always recommend to others. Sunday lunch is always delicious and good value for money. Their lunch and deserts set menu have a nice variety, and the vegetarian option also tends to be very tasty indeed! Child menu options are great too, and the portion size of adult and child plates are intense. You will need to pace yourself!
It gets very busy. Very, very busy, so booking in advance is recommended. Car park can be awkward as it narrows and you can get parked in by bigger 4x4s, but there’s loads of parking to be had.
Staff have always been friendly every time we’ve been, as they are very busy you may find yourself waiting a little for your bill, but the ambience is so nice I recommend ordering a post dinner coffee with the bill.
