Went to the Rockford with a group of 10 , we all loved our meal, the owners and staff are really friendly. Worth mentioning also that the beer is superb, myself and my Dad both had real ale and both loved it. Bottle of merlot was yummy and I found the prices really fair also. Thanks guys

As usual a great place to rest your aching feet whilst walking around Watersmeet near Lynmouth in Devon. Superb real ales with great meals. Tucked away in a beautiful spot right by the river where from the nearby bridge you can watch trout. Nearby hugh salmon were lurking. We always head for this spot when walking on holiday as you...

What a wonderful hotel. Hidden away in a deep valley on Exmoor it is a hidden treasure. Our room overlooked the river and the lush steep hillside, no mobile phone access here, bliss. You can however get free wifi courtesy of the hotel! Our room was compact but lovely and the food was superb, try the home made pies. Great... More

Great room, great food, great location. What more could you ask? The two ladies who run this establishment really have "hospitality" down to a fine art. Terrific walking right from the door. The Rockford Inn really is a hidden gem. This was our second visit - there will definitely be more!

We stayed at The Rockford Inn in late July for 3 nights. Great location and the proprietors were very helpful and attentive throughout our stay. We were there for a short walking and sight seeing visit. Maps and the best walk information were readily supplied. The room, food and beer were very good. Could not complain about anything. Recommended.

The inn is set in a wonderful valley amongst peaceful and tranquil setting. The staff at the in were friendly and welcoming. The facilities were really good value for money and the meals were freshly cooked and delicious with lots of choice. Would recommend this inn to anyone and would stay again.
