Rooms were very pleasant, clean and the shower in the bathroom was great! The breakfast was nice, although the first day we were there we weren't given a choice of what egg we wanted but could remove items from the breakfast (ie no mushroom etc). The second morning, we were offered a style of egg but were told we had... More

My partner and I stayed here for a night and had a lovely evening, great atmosphere and fantastic food. I would definitely recommend the Rock Inn for anyone who wants to escape to the tranquil countryside of somerset.

I could not be more grateful to Ruth and Darren (owners) for there welcome and overall ability for us to be served to the highest standard. We met several lovely locals and had a beautiful supper in the bar area....which actually felt just like... More

Stopped here on business for one night and have already booked again! Its basically a pub with rooms but with a difference. Plus points; lovely idyllic countryside location, fantastic gourmet food at great prices and the biggest plus for me, real feather pillows instead of blocks of concrete! Minus points; no baked beans at breakfast!

Having heard good things, we decided to stay at the Rock Inn last Friday. Upon arrival, Ruth (who owns and runs the establishment with her husband Daren), greeted us and showed us to our room. The building is 400 years old and Ruth and Daren have done a great job of retaining the charm and character of the Inn whilst... More

Thank you Ruth & Darren for being such great hosts. Top quality food, generous portions, good value and attentive service (can thoroughly recommend the wood pigeon starter and venison main but didn't have room for dessert). Comfortable room and a great night's sleep followed by a delicious breakfast set us up perfectly for the next day. Everything we were hoping... More
