Really good

We popped in here late afternoon to see if they could fit 3 of us in, they did for 7pm that Saturday night. The restaurant area was nice and cosy, the staff were nice, and the food really was very good. We had the scollop salads, pate, Lemon Sole, Lamb shank, Steak.

I don't like writing bad reviews however i really felt this place is not making any effort to attract customers. We spotted the Rock house on a horrible rainy day in November and though it looked nice from the outside upon entering it was very quiet and empty but as the weather was so bad we decided to stay and...

Today I had a cream tea with a small pot Rhoddas clotted cream that had mould on top of it. Staff informed me that it happens quite often. I saw that the cream was being stored in a drinks fridge so I suggested that the drinks fridge was most likely not a low enough temperature for cream. The scone was... More

We stopped here for lunch while we were exploring Lynton & Lynmouth. The weather was nice when we arrived so we opted to sit outside on one of the benches. I ordered at the bar and they gave us a table number. Lunch menu had the normal items - jacket potatoes, sandwiches, toasted items, cakes, etc. Prices were ok. They... More

The outside of the hotel is not very appealing, but the restaurant is cosy. The food is excellent - very well cooked, and good sized portions if you are hungy. The only down-side was that I didn't have room for pudding!

We stopped off yesterday for a coffee and snack whilst visiting Lynmouth on a day trip. I have stayed at the Rock House before with the family and it has not changed much. Still indoor and outdoor eating, good food, good value and great service. Well worth a visit. Despite the weather we opted to sit outside and it was... More

Disappointing cream tea - scones appeared soft, dry, mass produced and underwhelming with no fruit. Staff unhelpful and definately don't ask for a jam other than strawberry or sweetners instead of sugar! Expensive.... Plenty of other and better value places in Lynmouth to go instead. Chose here for the view but turned out only 2 tables in the whole garden... More

Had evening meal. Pre booked and had a table by window which was nice. Huge servings for starters, was not advised of this as could have just had starter and nothing else. Main meal - I had chicken with mashed potato under it. All was quite tasteless, especially the potato - too much water I think. Service was good though.

The setting is second to none, the service was friendly, the food was really great, enjoyed it very much. I had the Lobster with saffron risotto which was wonderful. Book a table though as only has about 8 tables !
