Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

First visit despite living local and it exceded our expectations. Service friendly, polite and efficient. The food was superb and portions very large. The lamb casserole had been cooked to perfection with not a single piece of fat in the lamb. Authentic, quality food with...great service. Will definitely go back, and soon.More

I'll start with the only positive, and that was that the food was reasonable. We were initially seated in the new extension, which is a bit like a school canteen with absolutely no atmosphere. It did, however, stink of amonia, making it impossible to enjoy...eating in there. We asked to be reseated in the front of the restaurant which staff did without fuss, " Thank you!" Eight minutes into our starters, the main courses arrived, and despite saying we hadn't finished our starters, the server continued to try and leave the mains on the table ( I couldn't even put this down to being busy as they weren't and there was more staff than customers ) Once we received our bill, we found extra drinks added to it, and sides charged for that had failed to arrive. This used to be our favourite restaurant, and it's sad that standards have been allowed to drop so far.More

Food was cold and had to be done again. Service was shocking and overcharged! Poor communication throughout. Also very expensive for poor food and service and then £20 added on as a service charge just because there were more than 6 of us! Will not...be visiting again! I think having only 2 tables full on a weekend night says a lot!More

Very overcrowded, even the Bar had tables around it. My starter of chicken wings came immediately, which suggested they were already cooked and not fresh. The food came before the drinks and my wife's main course had to be returned as it was cold in...the middle. Staff were asking us for our table number. As regulars, we found a marked problem, both with Staff and the food. We will not be returning anytime soon.More

Great place and food and service are awesome. The garlic bread and meatballs were ace. Chicken and lamb skewers for mains, really good. Only down side, they put us in a side room, then we realised when people kept walking right past our table, that...we were right outside toilet. Should have asked to move but didn't want make a fuss. Still had a great night, just a heads up, you need to get rid of that table spot. It's a stupid place for people to sit.Only other issue is carpark, tiny and very hard to get in and out if you are lucky to get a spot. Service, food and the place are first class and beautiful. Think next time we'll ensure we get a table in the main bit though. 😅😄More

We have visited Rokka several times and whilst the food is always really nice the staff are not the friendliest and the place lacks atmosphere. There is very little customer interaction. I asked if we could use our Meerkat code and I was told the...‘boss no longer does this’ despite having the offer showing as available on the compare site. I don’t mind paying full price if the food is nice, which it is, but it’s a shame the staff don’t make a bit more effort to make the customers feel welcome.More

Came with my parents for my birthday meal. I am vegetarian and had ordered the mushroom and spinach risotto for my main course. What arrived was the chicken risotto. Food was sent back and I was left to watch my parents eating. Then when the...correct dish arrived it was undercooked and the rice was still crunchy, pretty much inedible. Service was poor, staff didn’t seem to care that they’d made a mistake and nothing was done to rectify the second issue. Definitely would not recommend and will not be returning.More

Greeting great. Downhill from there. Music so loud difficult to talk. Waiter dismissive. Worst of all food appalling- ordered the mixed grill for 2. Albeit plentiful overcooked to point of cremation. Clearly not freshly cooked as dry & cold. Sadly couldn’t return it as normal...as large family celebration ages 25-78 & would be embarrassed. Would not recommendMore

Hi sorry I’m not sure. There was a beer garden out the back when it was a pub. I’ve not been out since it’s been a restaurant.
