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

Stayed for one night prior to attending a christening. The welcome was lovely-genuine, 'local' input (someone at the bar told us where to go), and a drink. Room clean, fresh and VERY comfortable bed. Food as good as anything you'd get anywhere, and menu excellent. Complimentary port after dinner and the next morning a very welcome full English with home... More

Stayed at The Rock before and had a lovely stay, this visit we found new owners and felt the need to thank them for a lovely few days, hospitality was excellent, greeted with a welcome drink and lovely smile. Checked in to a fresh clean comfortable room for a quick wash before dinner. This was not your normal pub food... More

Staying for 2 nights and having already been blown away by a michelin star quality evening meal, a warm and friendly welcome, a quiet spotlessly clean and comfortable room with the quiet gurglings of the river running past my window at night, I now sit at breakfast witha veritable English Breakfast feast in front of me. Ruth and Daren, you... More

The hotel is set within beautiful scenery and the countryside that surrounds the local villages is superb. This has been our second stay at this hotel within 2 months. Both times we have been warmly welcomed and we have greatly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a charming restaurant that caters for vegetarians and the options available could not have... More

Excellent food, quite expensive, but really superior cooking. The beer was fine, not perfect but kept well enough. Our bedroom was small but good, the bathroom had no shower. Very good breakfast. Service, however, was not as good. They couldn't wait to pack of us off to bed at 23.00. Not long before, they were clearing the dining table around... More

Rooms were very pleasant, clean and the shower in the bathroom was great! The breakfast was nice, although the first day we were there we weren't given a choice of what egg we wanted but could remove items from the breakfast (ie no mushroom etc). The second morning, we were offered a style of egg but were told we had... More

My partner and I stayed here for a night and had a lovely evening, great atmosphere and fantastic food. I would definitely recommend the Rock Inn for anyone who wants to escape to the tranquil countryside of somerset.
