My partner and I visited the rock inn whilst staying at the old dairy b&b. To start, the lady (manager I believe) was extremely helpful on the phone, booking us in and advising us to arrive 10 minutes early so we could browse the menu and order drinks...very good advise. The actual meal itself was delightful. All fresh and homemade,... More

A suprising little gem. Nice quiet place to stay when I was here, though it can be get busy during certain times of year. Hotel was clean and the people were all friendly. The food was excellent. I used the hotel as a stop off point on a trip around the South West. I would stay here again, Best Shower... More

We had a wonderful meal here and look forward to seeing the new wood burner in action. Despite the sad and vindictive comments from some locals, it appears by the ratings that the vast majority of diners and residents greatly appreciate the fine food and comfortable accommodation available here. As to the wonderful "glory days", a look back to May... More

Just come back from a lovely stay at this Inn. Room was so clean & comfortable with a lovely bathroom. Food was amazing as was breakfast - Daren is a fantastic chef. Evening meal was one of the best we have ever had. I thoroughly recommend the guinea fowl & my husband us still talking about the beef short ribs... More

99% of the locals will not enter this unfriendly place, I am a local speaking from experience and some of the incidents that have happened are unbelievable and extremely ignorant. Water row and the surrounding areas are well worth a visit but what must visitors think when greeted with rudeness when entering The Rock? It certainly leaves a bad impression.Perhaps... More

One night stay with dog. Clean room but basic facilities. Evening meal good standard with reasonable wine list but service although friendly was lacking, not confident or slick as could have been. Confused why accept dogs when have to be under bar table for duration of meal and not accepted at all for breakfast. Bacon butties outside and basic room... More

Looks good from outside, disappointed on prices, some soft drinks unavailable and only one ale on. They want to sort out if their a pub with food or trying to be something their not, an up market restaurant Will not be going back.

Our reservation had been overlooked but we were able to secure a table. The duck with sherry sauce was tasty and tender. Nice vegetable selection but very al dente. The shepherds pie needed more seasoning and a small jug of gravy would have helped. I commented about the veg being too al dente and the reply was 'that's how chef... More

We stayed here in February and thought it was great. Our room was very comfortable, quiet and very clean. The food was really lovely. I had the best Shepherds Pie I have ever had. It was delicious and beautifully presented. Breakfast was really nice too. Don't take any notice of the mean spirited reviews, it wasn't our experience at all.

Checked in at 6pm, lovely log fire was a nice welcome, our room was very comfortable, quiet and spotless clean. The food was amazing, I had the hake and husband had slow roasted beef rib in treacle sauce, (he wouldn't share it) still thinking about it now, one week later.
