The Idle Rocks


Dining at the Idle Rocks is an experience not to be missed. Head Chef Guy Owens culinary style is refined, imaginative cuisine, with French and Asian influences. Flavour, texture and presentation all play an integral part in creating the perfect dish. Whilst we are serious about the sourcing and preparation of our menu, the setting is relaxed and the hospitality is genuine and engaging.
Open for Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Dinner, with dining outside on the waterside terrace at every opportunity. We look forward to welcoming you and recommend making a reservation in advance.
Recently awarded the 2018 Seafood Restaurant of the Year, Head Chef Guy Owen tells us about his influences and why sustainable local seafood is key to the dining experience at the Idle Rocks:
