Decided to try On the rocks after passing a few times. What a great little restaurant. If you love Pink Floyd the bar layout will keep you distracted naming the album covers.
Now the food. Expected good and got a wow. Portions were a very health size, I took a doggy bag home.
For a small place a good selection at the bar. Glutten free well catered for.
Pre booking would be advised as it always looks busy.

Four of us ate at On The Rocks last night and loved it. We’ll be back very soon, it’s our new favourite. Little bit of feedback, my husband started with mussels & ordered the lemon sole for main course, (from the specials board) which was served on a bed of mussels. Everything was absolutely delicious but if the waiter had pointed out that he had ordered mussels for both courses he would have changed his order. Other than that, wonderful.

We booked the whole place for a landmark birthday celebration and it simply couldn't have been better.
Unsurpassed location with fantastic views, well-cooked food, reasonably priced wine and drinks and superb service.
Just can't wait for the summer when it will be THE place to go!

Went to this place for the first time last week along with my wife and two other couples. There is nothing else to say except everything was superb. Loved the place though the high stools took some getting on and off if you're a bit short or older. Two of us are Guinness drinkers and we asked if it was OK for us to go across the road to the Seashore Grill to get some as they are owned by the same people. The staff on duty wouldn't hear of us going, but they kept going to get them for us, and yet it was a really busy night. I kept saying that we had no problem going ourselves but they insisted. The place was warm inside despite the temperatures outside being freezing, and it was blowing a gale. Lovely atmosphere and great food, we all had different meals and we all agreed that it was superb. All in all, a great place to go for a nice night, and it will be even better on a summer's evening when maybe the sun is out, as the views will be great. Can't praise this place enough.
