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

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

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

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
