Beware the pub is closed in the afternoons - we walked from Wivey and had to hang around for an hour before it opened at 6pm. Very nice quality food and the duck especially good. Chips a bit like mc Donald's and a think cut choice would be good. Bus stops outside but not run late or often. Taxis very... More

We found this place completely by chance when meeting some friends. The place is very dog friendly. The staff were extremely pleasant and also very friendly. We had a lovely generously portioned meal. Overall we were very impressed and would definitely go there again.

Spacious, comfortable & well equipped room. Quiet & peaceful location. Both evening meal & breakfast were delicious. The decor of the place is really well done both in the dining room & bar area. The addition of the snug for guests it also a nice touch. Great place for a stopover.

The food is very good, great menu all cooked by the owner and nice restaurant bar area. We stayed for an evening meal and breakfast and both were excellent. The room was a litte on the small side but nicely furnished and comfortable. Only downside was in our room we couldn't open the window and it was a warm night

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Rock Inn, beautiful location, lovely room with a delightful ensuite bathroom. The evening meal was excellent and we ate more than we planned. Good selection of quality wines to accompany the meal. The breakfast was just right, fresh produce and fresh bread toast. The owners have a well thought out package and... More

Went twice during our stay at Waterrow Caravan Park. Enjoyed both times. Excellent food and great service with a smile. A few people told us the food is great but service is poor, that wasn't what we found. If we are ever back in this area we will book in again. Enjoyed the lamb and the following wee pigs cheeks.

I don't know what to make of this place tbh: the room was nice enough, comfy bed, new carpet, clean bathroom, but at the same time lots of notices about what not to do, inconveniences like the keys being on huge rings that you have to carry around in full because one or two people had previously lost their keys....

We booked an evening meal at short notice for 9 people. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The food was absolutely beautiful, tasty and well presented. We all really enjoyed the meal, and also the surroundings of this old but comfortable Inn. Its a shame we didn't live closer, as we were on holiday in Somerset, as... More
