“Personal touch!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Operating as a take away outfit in the evenings, who are a definitely a cut above the rest.Great honest homemade food and the owners were Very happy to spice up the chilli for those of us with a jaded palette! Will definitely be repeating the experience. Great stroganoff also for those who were not brave enough to stomach the spice!
Highly recommended definitely worth a visit.

“Forget here if you have children”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

Having eaten here several times we were disappointed that we were less than welcome now we have a child. I understand that people do not want their meals to be disturbed by a baby however not only was she asleep but it was very early evening. I also wouldn't want her to disturb others and as a parent would always do my best to ensure that this didn't happen.

“don,t judge a book by its cover !!!!!!!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

This may not look like its up to much from the outside
and even the inside but wow!!! prepare to be blown away
with some of the best and most flavoursome food for miles
allthough the menu is small the the choices are great and you will find
something for everyone the menu does not cater for children but
there will be plenty of food for you to create a meal for them from your
own choices and the chef is very obliging in trying to help
we went as a ten to celebrate a 50th aniversary and we were not
dissapointed it certainly deserves its no.1 spot on tripadviser
for resturants in mortehoe .
some of the best food ive had for a very long while it may seem quite
expensive on first impressions but trust me when you get your food
you will soon forget this as i said earlier we were a 10 6 adults 4 children
it cost £270 but this included a bottle of champagne and a round of drinks
a main course and a desert and a cheese board
well done rockleigh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Good home cooked food”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

Its always a treat to have proper home cooked food, this family run restuarant is on good form again in 2012. My Wife said the sole with prawns and along with a big choice of fresh cooked vegetables was a delicious choice and I had a very good steak. In this part of North Devon the food in so many places varies from year to year but with the owner doing the cooking at the Rockleigh this is not the case. There is a choice of 6 or 7 starters, mains, and deserts and you need to be hungry to tackle the 3 courses. If you can only manage a starter and a main if you ask for an extra plate you may share a dessert and have the full experience of a yummy pudding!
They can only handle about 25 covers at any one time so book up at the weekend or in high season.
