We stayed at the Rock on our trip to Blagdon Water in Devon.The welcome was great, the room very comfortable.Our evening meal was exceptional .The West Devon countryside is really beautiful and Exmoor is right on the doorstep.

CHAIN OF EVENTS 1. Booked table for 7 at 7.30 well in advance. 2. Arrived just before 7.30 to be told to "hurry up & order we have a table for 25". 3. Forgoing starters our mains turned up in good time. 4. One main (& only one) was not up to par. I don't believe that more than 50%... More

We are aware of your comments about our Short Ribs but I think you didn't really know what you were ordering, as you wouldn't have been so squeamish about fat. The other two portions served on your table were happy. And the gentlemen who paid the bill left a gratuity. Daren Barclay Owner & Chef Patron More

After a tour over the Somerset hills due to the Sat Nav taking us astray we received a lovely warm welcome. We stayed for 1 night in a lovely room on the top floor. It was spotlessly clean and very cosy with goose down duvet and pillows. The room was very quiet, it is situated on a road but little... More

We have stayed twice at Rock Inn, a cosy country inn, on our way to Lundy Island. Second time was a very pleasant surprise as it felt like they had really upped their game since the first visit! Not that first time was bad, just cannot remember it as good as the second. Food for dinner was delicious, perfectly cooked... More

Nice little hotel in a real countryside. Restaurant was crowded and service was a bit slow but the food was very good. Located in a very quiet countryside. The room was small but good enough for 1 or 2 nights stay. Clean room with a bath. Came with good bed and TV. Friendly little hotel and if you are in... More

I stayed here with my little boy and some other family members. We were very impressed with all aspects. Our family room was so lovely and cosy and decorated beautifully! As was the other room my family stayed in. We ate in the restaurant at night and the food was absolutely beautiful and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend.

We (a family of 3 with a 6 year old child) stayed here recently for one night. The food was absolutely amazing! Good selection with locally sourced produce as well. I often dine in very good London restaurants with clients and the food here was just as good or even better! Good wine section and ales. The full English breakfast... More

I had a lovely night at the Rock Inn. I showed up far too early but was let in without complaint, given a free drink, and made to feel welcome. The food was lovely, the beer was good. My room was spotlessly clean, soft pillows and warm duvet. The water in the bathroom was wonderfully hot and I had a... More

Lovely clean rooms - all recently refurbished. Food in restaurant was very good and good choice of ales. The staff were friendly and welcoming. It was just the owner who gave the impression she was 'doing you a favour' - certainly not been on a charm course! That said the other staff mad eup for things!

The Rock inn is a superb inn. We stayed here with our teenage son for one evening, stopping over on our way to Exeter, and wished we'd booked for a second night. The food is outstanding; service is excellent and the bedrooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable and freshly decorated in - keeping for the age of the building. Decor is... More
