Reading all the recent reviews of The Rockford Inn, I can say that I totally agree with all the positive reviews. I just stayed for one night on a brief driving tour of the West Country. The hospitality from the ladies running the place made me immediately feel at ease, and the pressures, tension and stress of some aspects of... More

We booked a late stay and spent one night , amazing location room overlooked the river in a quiet village at the end of a long country road, peace and quiet wih an amazing walk through the woods. The food was excellent with great choice and value. going back in the Spring to see the snowdrops. Hospitality first class

We spent a fantastic couple of nights at this inn in October and what a treat! Wonderful hospitality from start to finish - comfortable and clean bedrooms, excellent local ales, great food and a beautiful setting. We would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

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
