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

This was our second stay at the Rock Inn and this time we were with two couples who had not been before. Our rooms were tastefully furnished, the beds very comfortable and the shower pressure and temperature excellent. The food was yet again faultless. My partner said the fish soup was delicious, as was my asparagus. For our main course... More

In Somerset, just over the border from Devon. We arrived there without a booking and the place was busy. With friendly we were able to obtain a table in the bar after a short wait. The chicken dish was beautifully well cooked and tasty. Another one of many good bistro pubs in this area.

After enjoying a pleasant evening, a great steak dinner and a good nights sleep on checking out Ruth the demure landlady told us that although we thought we had had a booking we hadn't! But as they could fit us in she hadn't thought to say anything! So I'm very pleased my mistake went un-punished but more it was rewarded... More

We booked a table for lunch during my sister's hen weekend (Sat 9 May). There were 16 of us and we were asked to pre-order from the extensive menu (which you would expect from such a large group). Our food was served ten minutes after our booked time, which astounded me for such such a large party - all piping... More
