    Had recently been to R&F & was quite disappointed. Was not planning to return. So glad I did. All had 3 course meals from the Festive menu - meat, fish & veggie. Food hot and well cooked - delicious. Only criticism would be sprouts overcooked. Service really good - attentive but not overbearing. Very relaxed & enjoyable experience. Well done R&F - will be back.

    An enjoyable evening. I took visitors for the third time in as many months and they were delighted and impressed with the food and service. We ate from the special offer menus and found there was a good choice and excellent value. We particularly liked the veggie menu. Impressive all round!

    Just some small improvements needed. There was a little confusion on where to seat us even though we had booked initially but we were placed upstairs which was actually better as much quieter. Food was great. Small thing which didn’t matter as such but asked for garlic bread with cheese as a side with main meal but came out before starters so had to eat as would have been cold. Food was tasty and good value as always.

    Lovely looking country inn with a good friendly service. We took up the offer of two meals for £14 and the food was tasty, good portions and hot. All in all we felt that we had very good value for money.

    We visit the rock and fountain regularly now, whether that be for a quick drink after a walk in the forest, a sit down meal or a take-away. The staff are always so friendly, the service prompt and polite- nothing is ever too much trouble and the food- delicious! On this particular occasion we visited for my fiancé’s birthday meal- everything was perfect. We will Be back very soon :)

    Came for Dinner on Saturday eve as we were visiting for the Rugby. Gluten free options were great. I had chicken wings which came out cold on the inside and very uncooked once bitten. Lamb rump wasn't bad bit tough and over cooked for me though. Waitress was amazing very accommodating and embarrassed the chef could get wings right. Prob won't come again unfortunately

    Very quick service even though they were very busy. I am always apprehensive about ordering steak out as a lot of places struggle to cook it properly. All meals was beautifully cooked especially the steak it was melt in the mouth and cooked to perfection. Thank you for a lovely meal as always
