Excellent place to take grown up children in their mid twenties. Lots of favourite food choices like ribs, steak, chicken and fish. Great selection of pizzas and salads. The only downside was we were so full that couldn't try desserts. Will definitely come back next time to try them. A+++

Great meal. Nice and hot and plenty of it. Our waitress delivered great service. Salad was tasty - best I have had at any restaurant, fresh, crunchy and lovely dressing. Great to see a lot of people enjoying themselves on the pool tables. Will be back.

Seated in a nice booth. Accommodated slash tolerated the groups lack of speed in making menu choices, without any signs of annoyance. Food was standard pub grub done at a satisfactory quality. Wait for food was acceptable.

From the moment we arrived we were very comfortable in the surroundings. The staff gave excellent service and made you feel very welcome. The food was at a high level, with the steak being cooked to perfection. We had two younger children with us, they found the gravey and the sauce to be a little to flavoursome, ideal for adults, but a little too strong for a child.

Having previously visited and enjoyed Rockpool, this time was a huge disappointment. As soon as we entered the establishment our group felt largely ignored and sidelined. The service pre-ordering was minimal, and when asking about the evening specials the waitress was uninterested, gesturing to a specials board as she walked away, the specials board pointed away from us and couldn't be read from where we were sitting.

The food itself was okay, the Chicken Parmigiana was soggy and lukewarm, however, the flatbread starter was amazing.

We were seated at a table with views into the kitchen. While waiting for our food to be served we witness a waitress eating a chip off of another customer's plate while bringing it out.

While that may be excusable what was not, was a staff member placing her pouch of tobacco on the kitchen bench close to where food was being prepared and rolling a cigarette in the kitchen. It was very offputting and none of the three people at the table would go back.
