On The Rocks at Quigley’s

On The Rocks at Quigley’s was shortlisted in the Great Food Club Awards 2015.

It started life as a popular music and sports bar, which then added a restaurant – On The Rocks. Many weren’t convinced it would work. Would people want to dine in a place they regarded as a drinking venue? Well, the doubters have been proved wrong.

The original idea was simple. Steak. And a rock. You are given a raw hunk of meat, a hot stone, chips, a side salad and some tasty sauces, then spend the evening cooking your steak exactly as you like it. They key ingredient – steak – is from family-run butcher Joseph Morris (winner of a Which? award for Local Business of the Year in 2009), which has branches in Rugby, South Kilworth and Wigston, and sources its meat from local farms.

As demand has increased, so the menu has expanded. The ‘on the rocks’ element is still centre stage, but now you get to choose between beef, lamb, duck, chicken, vegetarian mushroom stacks and more. You can even order ‘The Rocks Feast’ – a bit of everything from fillet to lamb, prawns, scallops and duck.

The starters are simple: a basket of warm breads, a mezze platter of meats, olives, dips and bread, or gooey breaded mozzarella sticks. There are side dishes, too, such as halloumi chips. And let’s not forget the desserts – think slabs of rich cheesecake.

The decor is simple and comfortable, the service friendly and knowledgeable, and the wine list (found on the label of a wine bottle on your table) isn’t bad either.
