My partner and I are currently in the middle of a two night stay at the Rock Inn and we've never eaten so well! I had the duck last night, which I didn't think could be bettered. I was wrong - tonight's venison was out of this world! My partner had the beef last night and the Angus burger this... More

The food was excellent, I had the duck, my husband the venison and my son a little fish and chips(good value,£5 for two courses). The food was all freshly cooked and the staff were nice and... More

If I were to be critical I could find hardly anything to 'complain' about. The hosts, the venue, the rooms, the hot water, the meals and the ambiance were all very very good. Everyone was happy and helpful and worked like trojans during our stay to make us have as good a time as possible. Well done to Ruth and... More

My husband and I decided for the first time ever to 'get away from it all' for New Year's Eve, after scouring the internet for a short notice break we stumbled upon The Rock Inn, and what a find this was. As good food was our main priority The Rock Inn seemed to tick this box perfectly although we were... More

I received three mobile calls in December asking to confirm but only picked up he last one which said the table was cancelled. I rang back and it was reinstated. I called in on 23rd or 24th and picked up the menu and... More

We let your table because we hadn't heard from you and assumed you weren't coming. You didn't do what you were told to do ie. confirm numbers and menu choice by mid day Monday 29th December. You then phoned up Tuesday 30th December at 4pm and blamed me for your incompetence in letting your family down. You lied when you... More

I have stayed at the Rock Inn on several occasions as it is a superb place to stay and relax after a days meeting in Taunton (approx. 30min - 40min drive, traffic dependant). The rooms are all very comfortable, clean and well kept. The beds and pillows are top quality for a perfect nights sleep. Food is absolutely top class... More

Very welcoming. First thing you see arfter the friendly staff at the bar is a large roaring log fire. Just what you want to see on a cold December day. Food excellent, my husband fully recommends the fish soup and I had my first experiance of haunch of venison and it will not be my last - it was perfect.... More

Visited the Rock Inn yesterday for the firms annual Christmas dinner and cannot sing the praises of this fantastic establishment enough. Everything from the initial greeting when we entered, to the attentive and friendly service was faultless. The three course set dinner was exceptional and excellent value. I personally had the hot smoked salmon pate to start, followed by a... More
