Have visited The Rock Rose a number of times. Food and service always great and prices reasonable. Had no heating today and Mel plus staff were so apologetic. This didn't deter customers who understood situation. Will definitely be back. The carvery is good value for...money.More

We visited at lunchtime. Staff friendly. We had a choice of tables and were asked to choose from the menu on the table and then order at the bar which we did. Happy to sit here for a couple of hours, chatting in comfortable surroundings....Club type surroundings with big tv's, slot machines and a children's play area. The food was standard pub fare, it didn't stand out but no problems with it. Frozen chips and the christmas special burger which was a nice mix. Plenty of parking.More

As a family we had a wonderful time at this event on Saturday 30th Oct. The children enjoyed their sweet treats, meal and pudding but most of all the pumpkin carving! All the staff were friendly and everyone had fun, thank you to everyone working.

We have visited the Rock Rose several times during October and the summer and have received excellent food at very reasonable prices. Can definitely recommend the gammon steak and our friends have also visited in our recommendation and were very impressed!. We are looking forward...to going again and taking advantage of their very special deals leading up to ChristmasMore
