We booked out all 8 rooms and arrived en mass on Friday afternoon to a roaring log fire and a great welcome, the rooms are boutique style, the water pressure is amazing loads of piping hot water for a relaxing bath. We had a dog, a granny and a baby in the group Ruth looked after us all weekend, we... More

I used to come here a lot and the food was delicious! The food was still good but cold. was disappointed. the service was excellent - I couldn't fault that. Shame as the location is great and the character is fantastic.

We are horrified to read your review as any professional would be. We check back on all tables shortly after serving food and why when asked if everything was ok at the time, did you not say something when you felt it wasn't? There is nothing we can do for you if you don't give us the chance but we... More

We stayed overnight at the Rock Inn on our way to Cornwall in November. What a find. Our room was beautiful with plenty of space for a travel cot. We booked a table in the excellent restaurant for dinner, which we enjoyed in front of a roaring fire and with very good red wine and ales to hand. Breakfast was... More

We walked to this pub for a pint early not expecting to eat and we're both intrigued by the menu board.Although we looked like a pair of itinerants and had our dog the welcome was warm and friendly.We then decided to grab a table in front of a great log fire and decided to have dinner there.What a great decision...

We stayed 3 nights in October. The owners put a lot of thought into making our stay pleasant, for example , they emailed beforehand with good directions, and provide a sitting area for use when the pub is shut. The food in the pub was excellent, worth booking beforehand as it gets really busy. Our room was very comfortable, clean... More

A family run, unspoilt historic pub/restaurant in a picturesque setting. We had a very warm welcome from one of the owners,(physically warm as well, due to the blazing log fire in the bar/restaurant). We stayed three nights (wished it had been longer). Our room was warm and well equipped with plentiful hot water at all times. But, apart from the... More

Went here for the first time for a birthday dinner with family. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food first class. Its a little bit out of the way but well worth the drive - highly recommended

If you are in the area and you want good food then look no further. The rock inn is a lovely place where you will find a warm welcome and fresh home made food to a high standard. I believe its a family run business who also rent rooms out. My husband and I were staying in a campsite nearby... More

Some friends we were staying with took us to The Rock Inn for supper. What an culinary experience we had. The fish soup was the best we had tasted outside of France. The Short Rib Beef was so tender it melted in your mouth. The sweets were stunning and the homemade ice cream was to die for. Welcome and service... More
