    Mostly okay but garlic bread only cooked on one side so very doughy/soggy and only warm not hot. Hunter's chicken sent back as chicken was cold. Taken away and microwaved so came back hotter but quite chewy and started 10 minutes after everybody else. Ribs were dry (expected sauce). Waitress / waiter both very pleasant. Asked for condiments and re-asked when chicken brought back and five minutes later they arrived. Been before and generally a good meal so we will return to try again. Won’t recommend until we have returned.

    We’ve eaten here many times over the years and always been very happy with the quality of food, value and friendliness of staff. This last time is first time since COVID, but all is as it used to/ should be, just a bit more expensive (but that’s universally the case with eating out in our experience).

    Been twice in one week as was so impressed. Lovely food and excellent helpful and polite staff. Ate from the two course set menu which is reasonable and a great choice and also eaten off the a la carte menu which was also lovely food and not over priced. Would highly recommend.

    We decided on the a la carte menu which was only marginally more expensive than the set menu. Waitress service was efficient, helpful and polite. Drinks were served at our table in a timely manner and our food followed within 15 minutes. After each course we were allowed ample time to digest and savour. All three courses were cooked perfectly and our waitress could not have been more helpful. When the bill arrived I was pleasantly surprised as I expected it to cost more. All in all an extremely enjoyable time from the moment we were shown to our table to the time we left. Would I visit again? Already booked!

    Asked for vegetable soup and when it came it looked like it was just a chopped tomato with herbs in it. Certainly not worth the money and we also had sirloin steaks with a Stilton sauce but it was missing the Stilton and it was served with ordinary knives rather than steak knives so it made it impossible to cut, also very fatty Don’t think we will be returning any time soon

    Very little bad to say, except I'd prefer more chips with the main courses. Starter (spicy chicken mini fillets with flatbread and minty yoghurt sauce) was very tasty. Burgers are very nice. Service was friendly and prompt. I like the outdoor space, nice ambiance and just feel more relaxed out there in these strange Covid times. When the weather gets colder I'll probably still sit out there but wrap up well!

    We have given the service 3 stars due to having to wait 57 minutes for our food to arrive. We regularly use the Rock and Fountain and have never waited this length of time before. When the food arrived we did admit the 57 minutes had been worth the wait. However the wait may have put others off had it been there first visit. We have booked for our November catch up. Staff are always friendly and our waitress was excellent especially as it was her first day. It was great to be back and we were thrilled you had survived the Pandemic.

    Great country pub grub. Not a quick lunch, 3/4 hour wait. But for a catch up with friends it's ok. Two courses £14. Good choice of mains we had the fish, burger and lasagne. Excellent. The went for orange and passionfruit cheesecake, but came out as strawberry, which we ate anyway and was delicious.
