Superb food and even better service at this restaurant within a hotel (I normally avoid these as places to eat as, given the captive audience of residents, often hotels don't try very hard with their food). We were able to order in an unconventional manner, mid-afternoon, a selection of 5-6 starters that we ate tapas style. All dishes were great,... More

My husband and I have just enjoyed what can only be described as the best meal we have ever had from here. The food was absolutely amazing. The staff were exceptional and we left completely stuffed and very satisfied. Can't wait to go back!

The food was very tasty and although i had not been for a while it has lost none of its quality in the food department and the staff remain very friendly at all times. For food, hospitality and a place with some character you will be hard pressed to beat it in East Lothian.

We hired a function room at The Rocks for around 30 people. The food was perfect; the service was outstanding and the staff could not have been more helpful. Everyone in our party commented on how lovely it was. Thank you.

We stopped by the Rocks mid afternoon after a walk around the bay just to look at the menu and the staff inside were so helpful that we decided to go back there at night and cancelled our existing reservation. We arrived and the atmosphere was great. Very busy and lively with some live music playing. We were seated in... More

We enjoyed all the food it was excellent but it was very loud and rowdy at the bar as if it was just a local pub to people

Visited on the 17th December and were immediately sat at a nicely laid table right next to the bar. The service from every member of staff was top class. Attentive and helpful but not overbearing. The food itself was a lovely treat and Jim was happy to provide information and advice on what was best in his opinion. Overall, a... More
