Red Rock Cider was an alcoholic beverage produced by Taunton Cider and sold in the UK, during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Unusually, it is remembered most fondly for its advertisements, which had the strapline "It's not red, and there's no rocks in it".

In 1990, a series of TV adverts, directed by John Lloyd, were produced in the style of Police Squad! (but titled as Fraud Squad) and starred Leslie Nielsen in a role similar, but not namechecked as Detective Frank Drebin. In one of these, Nielsen shouts, "Hey! You, over there, in the shadows!" The man steps forward and reveals himself to be Hank Marvin, guitarist with sixties pop group The Shadows.
