|I CAN ONLY ECHO THE COMMENTS HERE! I went to this pub on Sunday with my partner Kenneth to relax after a long shift. We have NO kids (thank god). We usually partake in a little PDA (public display of affection) when we get the time, as most couples do, however the matron behind the bar took HUGE offence to this and asked us to leave. I asked her what her problem was and if she would allow a straight couple to kiss and she said simply she didn't allow 'our sort' in here and ejected us. I asked for her name to report her to the Hate Crime Police and she provided it. I then tweeted about this pub to all my 3,206 Twitter followers and told them to avoid it as it was not tolerant. I have written to the Daily Mail and Mary Portas about this grossly unfair matter and will be seeking damages it is disgusting, we are planning to spend the winnings on a house in Majorca and maybe a new Porsche. Thank you to this website for alerting us to this pub, we are looking for other intolerant places to sue, if you can please PM me if you know some nearby. Thank you, Santana and Kenneth x|

|Also Scrumpylicious I'd like to quote you from May 5th 2012 'This site is for reviewing pubs, not picking holes in others' comments'|
I rest my case.

|Well Scrumpylicious I'm sorry to disappoint but I am not a local at all, I live in Tunbridge Wells... So whether you believe my story or not it is in fact the truth. I'm sorry if you had a bad time there but my experience has been very good, hence my positive review. Just because my time there differed to yours does not make me a liar!|

|A nice, if wholly implausible, story there, KettleChip. It is so obvious that you are one of the many locals currently trying to sell your property. From what I have seen, nothing sells in that area and, judging by the locals that frequent The Rock, I am not at all surprised. A pretty little pub in a fetid backwater. What a shame.|

|I went to this pub for the first time this week and I must agree with someone of the comments. When I walked in the door there was a silence as everyone stared at me for not being a local, lots of rowdy people in the bar area as they had been on a shoot. However get over this initial uncomfortable feeling and fight your way to the bar and everything is brilliant, I agree that the locals didn't want to move but a polite request and they moved aside to allow me to get a very nice pint. I sat down by the fire and found most of the locals very chatty, in fact a very interesting group of people... there were bankers in suits, game keepers in working gear and builders in jeans. I like a pint so I wasn't put off by the loudness of the group, however if I was going to go with my young niece I wouldn't choose a weekend evening but that goes for almost every pub! Long and short, I loved this pub with it's vibrant group of locals... In fact I liked so much I returned the next day!! Some locals came in from the night before and made the effort to say hello, inviting me into the local circle.... I'm now looking for houses for sale in the area!|
