“Excellent steak!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Tuesday night is steak night - steak on the stone. The steaks are mouthwatering, served with chips and salad. Best steaks we've ever had. As if this wasn't enough, you bought one steak, and got the other for £1! Yes really! The staff were very friendly and helpful, despite the restaurant being full. Lovely atmosphere, wish it was our 'local', but we were on holiday. The steaks were provided by Curtis the butchers in the main street, and we took some back home with us. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are a steak lover.

“Great volcanic rock experience”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Went on a groupon voucher which was incredible value for money.
The prawn cocktail starter was massive and full of prawns. The crab salad starter wasn't so impressive in size but still nice.
The fillet steak was brilliant. My companion had the steak and prawns - this was a trickier meal to cook. The prawns are more like langostines and must be butterflied straight away for them to cook through. This is where it gets tricky and I suggest you ask for an extra plate so that your steak can be put on this so it doesn't continue to cook too much whilst you're wrestling with the prawns. In fact I too asked for an extra plate in order to put my steak on it.
The chips were nice and the salad was fresh.
Neither of us had dessert, so can't comment on that.
Service was excellent.
The chef has an idea of what gluten free is.
The downside is the pub needs better ventilation because when there are multiple volcanic rock steaks cooking it can get very smokey. Consequently, I really wish to go back and eat again but only in the summer when I can sit outside and be sure I won't get too smoked out!

“Love the black Rock steak”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Been here twice now for the black Rock steak nights (Tuesdays)
Steaks are of the highest quality and on the special nights the price is also fantastic, buy one get next one for £1
There's nothing better then eating a steak fresh from cooking on a hot rock.
Very filling meals with sides of chips and salad.
Great atmosphere busy pub.

“Disappointing food”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Pie without substance, service slow and steak not tender. Chips not made with real potato. Expensive too for the hyped up quality and award-winning food sources.
