I don't know what to make of this place tbh: the room was nice enough, comfy bed, new carpet, clean bathroom, but at the same time lots of notices about what not to do, inconveniences like the keys being on huge rings that you have to carry around in full because one or two people had previously lost their keys....

We booked an evening meal at short notice for 9 people. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The food was absolutely beautiful, tasty and well presented. We all really enjoyed the meal, and also the surroundings of this old but comfortable Inn. Its a shame we didn't live closer, as we were on holiday in Somerset, as... More

Our stays here have been as a family, a couple and as a single business visitor. It is a real tribute that I have felt just as much at home here as a single visitor as I have when with family. As a frequent traveller it is a joy to find such a super and sociable experience that is affordable... More

Had a wonderful lunch with sister and mum. Lovely to find somewhere that we can bring both dogs and eat. Easily the best steak I have had in years followed by mouth-wateringly good home made ice cream. Owner warm, friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to come back, well worth the drive.

We were able to book a table for 4 in the bar area as our friends had their dog with them who was welcome underneath the table. We drink Hendricks gin and it is an absolute MUST to have sliced or chopped cucumber with it. For some unknown reason the landlady told us that they didn't have any cucumber, this... More

If you want a beautiful rural location to get away, this place is ideal. However, Taunton and Wellington are close so could also serve as a great alternative to the standard business stops. Don't go anywhere else for food, the Rock Inn serves an excellent menu that will keep both the family and gastro expert happy. And we enjoyed a... More

A quality facility offering quality food and service. Driving up you immediately enjoyed the 'wow' factor when The Rock Inn came into view. We were met by perfect, charming hosts and escorted to our room. Room was spacious, in good working order with a huge TV [albeit at a side angle]. Dinner and breakfast was to perfection. One establishment definitely... More

May not look as good as it is from the outside but step in. A warm fire , a friendly welcome, decorated in a modern gastro pub style. We were a family of nine and seated at a long wooden table. The children were given paper and crayons and given an excellent deal of free drinks and wonderful homemade ice... More
