Having stayed at the Rockford Inn before, it was nice to see that nothing had changed. The warm welcome is genuine, and a relaxed ambience makes you feel at home straight away. The rooms are clean and have everything you would need, complimentary soaps, endless tea/coffee/ chocolate supplies and showers that work! As a lover of real ales, having the... More

This was a great experience. Stayed in the cosy single room with ensuite for 4 nights.The room was quite small but very clean, well equipped and had everthing thing I required, even bottled water. Food and drink was great and all the staff through out were first class. Could not have been looked after better anywhere. Nice dining room and... More

Both me and my husband cannot fault the hotel, the food or the staff. Everyone is so helpful kind and human with nothing too much trouble. The room was perfect. The food, especially the steak and ale pie....the best I have ever tasted. Proper home cooked food, homely welcome and in a beautiful part of the country what more could... More

We were very disappointed tonight with the service we received from your pub, we arrived at 8:00 to be told that there was no food available. It was a Wednesday night and not very busy at all. We appreciate that you should book but considering it was not busy you would assume that when others comment that 'nothing is to... More

We stayed in the cottages across the stream and enjoyed numerous nights of wonderful food (recommend the steak and Stilton pie!!!) and drink accompanied by a classic pub atmosphere and great service. We loved it so much we have booked a room later in the year and look forward to a proper stay there

We ate at the Rockford Inn last night and can only say very positive things about the experience. The food, ambience and service were all of the highest quality. The tranquil setting serves to make the Rockford Inn even more worth a visit. Living only 9 miles from the Inn, means that we will be dining at the Rockford on... More

We booked a weekend at the Rockford inn reading previous reviews. We needed good food and calm both having manic weekday lives! We booked the last room , a small double which was a pleasure to stay in. It was beautifully clean and well equipped. Our welcome, after batling the M5 traffic , was warm and very friendly. We ordered... More

We called here for a light lunch. Staff were very obliging and on offer were Childrens meals along side small meals, just right for us. Beautiful setting. And, such a lovely, charming property. Out of the way but certainly worth a visit to the Hotel and take a walk along this beautiful part of Devon.

We arrived here in glorious sunshine and from the first moment, the place felt very special. It is nestled in the trees against the River Lyn and is simply idyllic. Our room and ensuite were beautifully presented: clean, tidy and very comfortable although there's no opening window or extractor in the bathroom. The pub downstairs was very welcoming, with plenty... More

Had a fab lunch here after a riverside walk along from Watersmeet. The (small) beer garden is situated next to the river, which is idyllic. My husband was impressed with the cask beer on offer and raved about his pint of 'Uncle Sam's' from the Cotleigh brewery. We both had the pub classic of ham, egg and chips and it... More
