The Rock Inn was our place to stay for one night. The Inn is a 400 year old building, lovingly taken care of and very welcoming. The whole place has a very homely feel. Our room was cosy, large and had a bath. We ate in the bar where there was an open fire and the food was excellent. Friendly... More

lovely relaxed atmosphere , good varied menu ( via large blackboard ) reasonably priced , good service warm and welcoming, only problem I can envisage is lack of staff and with only a blackboard menu everyone stands in front of the fire to read it and with a group of people not quite the experience I want when I eat...

An unspoilt historic pub/restaurant in a scenic setting, very convenient for Exmoor and the Quantocks. We stayed three nights and would love to have had longer. The owners and staff an very friendly and helpful and the whole place was welcomingly warn (in a rather cold October) helped by a blazing fire in the bar. But, perhaps best of all... More

We have been to this Pub/Restaurant many times and the food was as usual great, however there are some weaknesses. Only 2 serving staff on duty who had to serve all tables and cope with front of house - a 3rd person would have helped and avoided things although ordered; forgotten and had to asked for again repeatedly. The removal... More

Simply sublime and excellent value for money. Had the fish soup for starters. Excellent. The slow roasted beef for main. Melt in your mouth. Would highly recommend.

The Rock at Waterrow has been a good eating place for some years. Last night six of us ate there and are we all agreed that it is now exceptionally good. The Cornish Fish Soup starter, served with croutons, cheddar cheese and rouille was quite delicious. My main course gammon steak was perfect and served with two double yolked eggs.... More

Firstly the food was very good, couldn't fault that. All locally sourced and menu seemed well thought out. Not your usual pie and mash place (prices £12 to £20 per person per meal). The pub is nicely decorated. The atmosphere let it down for me. We were asked when we walked in if we had booked, we hadn't. I looked... More

Thank you for your review. You said everything was excellent but it's a shame you chose to give us three out of five - you seem preoccupied with our reserved signs, which do actually mean what they say, we allocate the table and when the customer arrives, they may wish to sit somewhere else, hence this opportunity which you are...

We stayed close by at Exmoor Gate Lodges and walked to the Rock Inn a couple of times - the food and service was superb on both occasions - the duck really is excellent. We would highly recommend eating and staying here

We (a family of 3 with a 6 year old child) stayed here recently for one night. The food was absolutely amazing! Good selection with locally sourced produce as well. I often dine in very good London restaurants with clients and the food here was just as good or even better! Good wine section and ales. The full English breakfast... More
