My Dad, brother and I stayed for two nights in mid November. We found the situation of the Rockford inn to be perfect for our planned two days of walking. The hosts Catherine and Sarah were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in both nights and the food was some of the best pub/restaurant food I... More

We called in for lunch recently whilst walking from Lynmouth to Brendon via Watersmeet. This is a cosy traditional pub, the fire was lit and the food was fabulous. My husband and son sampled the venison pie which they said was the best pie they had tasted and I had a lovely ploughmans lunch with two types of cheese -... More

After a day walking, what better than a meal at the Rockford Inn. Staying locally in Rockford for a week we had dinner at the Inn twice, we certainly did not walk away hungry. The food is superb, using local fare and with great presentation. A friendly place in a stunning setting. Extremely good value with good beers and wines.... More

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

While staying in Lynton we were given advice by our Guest house to try the walk to Watersmeet and then onward to Rockford. What a great walk and then at the end the Rockford Inn a lovely old pub in a beautiful spot. We only called in for a coffee but were made very welcome by one of (I assume... More

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.
