This was our second stay at the Rock Inn and this time we were with two couples who had not been before. Our rooms were tastefully furnished, the beds very comfortable and the shower pressure and temperature excellent. The food was yet again faultless. My partner said the fish soup was delicious, as was my asparagus. For our main course... More

In Somerset, just over the border from Devon. We arrived there without a booking and the place was busy. With friendly we were able to obtain a table in the bar after a short wait. The chicken dish was beautifully well cooked and tasty. Another one of many good bistro pubs in this area.

After enjoying a pleasant evening, a great steak dinner and a good nights sleep on checking out Ruth the demure landlady told us that although we thought we had had a booking we hadn't! But as they could fit us in she hadn't thought to say anything! So I'm very pleased my mistake went un-punished but more it was rewarded... More

We booked a table for lunch during my sister's hen weekend (Sat 9 May). There were 16 of us and we were asked to pre-order from the extensive menu (which you would expect from such a large group). Our food was served ten minutes after our booked time, which astounded me for such such a large party - all piping... More

Visited Tuesday May 5th. Nice atmosphere with a lovely wood fire which kept us warm throughout. Had a couple of pints of cider which were different and tasty. My partner had plaice, I had duck which was well cooked and delicious. The granary bread left a little to be desired but otherwise a really nice meal out.

We stayed for one night as we were going down to lands end and wanted to break up the journey.. We were made very welcome and we had our 6 year old daughter with us which the owners both made a fuss of! We dined that evening and the food was excellent and our daughter had crayons and pictures to... More

I had been told this would be a great meal and we were not disappointed. Fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. We shall have to come back as we were distracted from the dessert menu by the homemade ice cream (spectacular!).

We have just returned from a lovely evening at the Rock Inn in Waterrow and our visit was worth every penny. The owners quite evidently have put a lot of time and effort into updating the decor and adding to the warm feeling of this old pub. Whether you wish to dine in the Restaurant or stay in the main...

We recently spent a few nights at the Rock Inn and had an excellent spacious room. It was clean and quiet with car parking immediately adjacent. Breakfasts were ample and well-cooked and promptly served. We used the inn as a base for exploring the area and it provided exactly what we needed. We will in all probability stay there again...
