What a wonderful little find! This country pub was well worth the detour off the main road. My husband and i called in for some lunch and it was fantastic! He had sirloin steak with all the trimmings and I had a homemade steak pie, the choice on the menu was huge! Two meals, a dessert, a couple of drinks and change from £25, a bargain. The staff were friendly and helpful, a rarity in this day and age. We would definitely recommend this place and will be calling again on our next trip to Neath.
Everytime i have gone to this pub i have really enjoyed my food, the staff are lovely. they have a park so that in the summer you don't have to eat in the pub you can have your food over there and the kids can still play.
I've been to the restaurant several times with my family the welcome is so nice by all the staff not many places you find are like that and the food must be the best in the area because I've been to most of them and me and family always end up in the rock and fountain inn 10 out 10 for service and food thank you
Our half-eaten meals and side-orders were completely cleared from our table whilst one of us was buying a lager at the bar and the other was in the toilet.
When we politely queried this, we were told by the waitress that as we had 'almost finished' our meals she has cleared them away. After some time the manageress appeared and offered us £2.00 (i.e. £1.00 each) off our bill. We considered this a derisory offer for the loss of at least half of our food, but no further offer OR apology was forthcoming. We were left sitting there wondering what to do, but nothing else happened so we went to the bar to query the matter. There we were told that we had 'had our food for nothing and that was the end of it'. Oh well...
We would have been quite happy to negotiate a settlement for the food we had eaten (around 50%) or to have received a dessert and coffee in place of the missing food, but in the end the staff were so blatantly rude and unhelpful that we decided to go, having first confirmed with the aforesaid manageress that no payment was to be made.
My advice? Don't go there!
rubbish hospitality, not recommended in the slightest. didn't even have a chance to eat the food as our table had been cancelled by themselves. We where told we could eat there, If we wanted an hours wait. No drinks offered for their mistake ad nowhere to sit, They tried to blame on us and even denied us making the booking saying that we had booked elsewhere. Our name and number was clearly in their book scribbled out. Ruined a birthday surprise!
Have once again come from the rock and fountain having a gorgeous pub meal with excellent service from bar staff.
Highly recommend this place for quite meal for two or a good family meal (they also offer a free minibus service to and from restaurant if you ring them)
lovely food, lovely service-- perfect meal out. and the best thing Mmmmm.....real chips!!!

I have several times visited this establishment with family and friends and all have been suitably impressed to want to eat there again! Coming from as 'far away' as Buckinghamshire I always make a point of dropping in for a pint of their well kept Real Ale during my visits.
I have been to this restaurant several times and each time i am treated with another difficult choice as to what to pick from their outstanding specials board. They have all the seasons best foods available and the quality of the cooking is superb. Service with a smile each time and very well priced for the quality. Perfect place for family get-together or a nice treat for a partner.
Excellent food and service. Food is just brilliant, homemade pies and dishes such as boar casserole and rabbit pie, also serving classics like duck a l'orange. Doesn? take debit or credit cards and that is its only downside. Always take family and friends there when they visit as there is such a varied menu and it is just like a true welsh pub should be.
