Went here for a walk and some lunch, brilliant location, fabulous views however we warned there would be a 45 minute for food. We waited for an hour and a half and people after us were getting their food! We weren't the only ones feeling fed up...

Firstly, I must own up and say
that I have only eaten a cream tea and had a snack soup lunch at THE GARA ROCK. Both were tip top. The site takes some beating. Breath taking views and walks to give an appetite. I do know that there has been a change of management recently, but all the more reason to go along and give it a try. I live locally and will certainly do so very soon. Watch this space for a report.

This is a great spot for a walk and a spot of lunch with the family and dogs (if you want to bring one). After a lovely walk along the coast or a quick trip down to the remote beach below - there is no better place to have a family lunch or coffee n cake - the food is excellent and plenty of it - we had a variety of starters and plates to share. The restaurant is very contemporary and airy with outstanding views. It is quite a drive from the main road but well worth it!

Website says opens at 9am. Got up early and walked 2 hours to get there only to find notice on the door saying opens at 11am!!!
Although there were many staff inside they were unwilling to make us a cup of coffee. Very unimpressed.

A family get together was made perfect with a beautiful coastal walk ending with a roast Sunday lunch at the Gara Rock. 8 of us, including 1 vegetarian booked the set roast and arrived slightly late (we phoned ahead-no problem, very understanding), the setting is amazing, wonderful sea views and our reserved table was large and provided a good vantage point. The 7 non vegetarians enjoyed a meal comprising 3! roast chickens and generous portions of superb roast vegetables, it was absolutely delicious. The vegetarian nut roast was reportedly first rate as well. Service was friendly and helpful and the meal was completed by a wonderful range of hot and cold puddings, served with a choice of ice creams or clotted cream. The total price per head for this was £15, which we all considered to be a bargain. I would unreservedly recommend the Gara Rock to all.
