Six of us stayed here to celebrate a 50th birthday. We all had tastefully furnished rooms, with lovely crisp white bed linen and great en-suites. The evening meal was a real highlight, probably the best beef I've had in years - simply delicious! Ruth and Daren were perfect hosts and have obviously put a lot of effort in to making... More

Another enjoyable meal at the Rock inn. Went with my husband for a meal and a few drinks while staying at the campsite nearby. Great service and fantastic food. We have been here a few times and now it's one of our favourite places to go whilst in the area. You won't be disappointed . Just to add that everything... More

This is a very nice, cosy place. Rooms are small but very comfortable and the place is really quiet. One word of warning: watch your head going up the stairs! The food is great and the service is excellent. It's a B+B, so check-in and out times are restricted but that's a small inconvenience for good value for money.

This must be the most unique find in Somerset. A 400 year old Inn with a quirky, modern twist to the immaculate and spotlessly clean rooms it offers. Add this to the friendly welcome from owners Ruth and Daren, the easy book in, roaring log fire and bowls of steaming French onion soup ( we arrived at lunch time) and... More

My partner and I are currently in the middle of a two night stay at the Rock Inn and we've never eaten so well! I had the duck last night, which I didn't think could be bettered. I was wrong - tonight's venison was out of this world! My partner had the beef last night and the Angus burger this... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon, and had booked, which would be a good idea. Was myself, my husband and our two year old. The food was excellent, I had the duck, my husband the venison and my son a little fish and chips(good value,£5 for two courses). The food was all freshly cooked and the staff were nice and... More

If I were to be critical I could find hardly anything to 'complain' about. The hosts, the venue, the rooms, the hot water, the meals and the ambiance were all very very good. Everyone was happy and helpful and worked like trojans during our stay to make us have as good a time as possible. Well done to Ruth and... More

My husband and I decided for the first time ever to 'get away from it all' for New Year's Eve, after scouring the internet for a short notice break we stumbled upon The Rock Inn, and what a find this was. As good food was our main priority The Rock Inn seemed to tick this box perfectly although we were... More

I booked a table for 15 for 30 December 2014 in the simmer when visiting the area. I received three mobile calls in December asking to confirm but only picked up he last one which said the table was cancelled. I rang back and it was reinstated. I called in on 23rd or 24th and picked up the menu and... More

Ruth B, Owner at The Rock Inn, responded to this review

We let your table because we hadn't heard from you and assumed you weren't coming. You didn't do what you were told to do ie. confirm numbers and menu choice by mid day Monday 29th December. You then phoned up Tuesday 30th December at 4pm and blamed me for your incompetence in letting your family down. You lied when you... More
