We have rented a house in the area for my 60th next year. We looked at that and then decided that rather drivee on to Devon we would stay in the area. The Rock Inn came up with good feedback on all the sites so booked on the strength of that. We were too late for lunch but were given... More

We stayed at the Rock Inn on Friday evening with our 4 month old little puppy. 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

My Dad and I booked in and had a double room each. Our rooms were very tastefully decorated and well thought out. The shower, unlike most hotels, was actually really powerful. The food was delicious. There was a good choice and lots of veggie options too. The wine list was good and was very reasonably priced. Would happily come back... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Rock Inn a couple of months ago for a weekend away. The hotel itself was lovely, in an idyllic location, with a great restaurant and a cosy little room with a great bathroom - nothing to complain about here. We are a young couple - 21 - and so of course don't have... More

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

We are sorry that you didn’t enjoy your stay and it is a pity that you didn’t mention this at the time. We think it is rather sly to complain two months after the event when you think we will have forgotten who you are. As a team, we bent over backwards to help you and your partner and it... More
