“A wonderful visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We stayed at the Rock on Thursday 31 January using our Grouon voucher and wow what a lovely stay we had. We were greeted by Matt the Manager/Owner, so friendly and welcoming. Our room was spotless and the food was to die for! We would recommend the Rock Inn anytime - thank you! And before I forget, the coffee was fab!

I came across the hotel on Groupon and was really impressed with what we had found. The hotel was very easy to find after we had lunch and a look round the local town of Wiveliscombe. Lots of parking away from the main road which is always nice. The inn was closed when we arrived but Matt was there to let us in and show us to our room. We were so impressed, it was decorated really well and very clean. Lots of different teas to choose from aswell as coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. The bathroom was spotless with soaps and showergels to use. We booked an evening meal and we werent disappointed. I chose the venison and my husband had the rib eye steak, both well cooked and so tasty. Breakfast was lovely, lots of choice and you could have whatever you wanted which doesnt always happen. We had a great night away and are already recommending it to friends and family. Hope to return again one day.

Room Tip: We had Room 7 which was at the back and away from most of the action.

We had a great meal in the restaurant of the pub, staff very friendly, excellent meal and value for money. Lovely pub will go back without a doubt. The menu we were spoilt for choice. The desserts there was so many that we found it hard to choose.

what a brilliant, brilliant place. Food is just the best around for miles - and we've had some true bummers. So don't be fooled by others, go to The Rock Inn and give real quality food a try for a reasonable sum too. We will be back again.

I stayed here one night finding it by chance on line. I normally do not stay in a inn but was supprised by the quailty of service and standards offfered. I had a small double for myself with a fantastic shower room. the fixtures were very good. I was helped with my cases by matt and booked in with speed. the bar service and selection was good however the food was superb with a large selection and very good value offerings. one of the most memerable meals for a while. breakfast was unusual as there was no menu and was asked what I would like and almost anything was available. I judge hotels by their breakfast with the question could I do better, I do cook a very good breakfast. the answer is no. the food was very good and well presentated. I left the Rock and felt I had a good night, this is not often thought of by me. Thanks to Matt and Joanna I will return.

We revisited this gem of a pub/B&B again last week - our third visit in 2 years. As always, great service, superb food and a good selection of real ales and wines.

We are always made to feel welcome. Great attention is paid to cleanliness and ensuring good service. Breakfasts are superb too as are other meals - local produce arrives every morning, from the bakers in Bampton, to meat and vegetables from various suppliers in the surrounding area. There is a reasonable selection of interresting vegetarian dishes also listed, which is a refreshing change compared to other places we have stayed. The real ales are all local and it was nice to find cider on draught this visit too.
We were joined by the latest generation of the family on our last morning too. Happy third birthday for this weekend!

Planning a short return in November. All in all, I cannot rate this Inn highly enough.

A warm welcome from mine host Matt and his lovely 2 year old son. Good real ale and well presented and tasteful food. A "locals feel" to the small main bar of the pub but felt very "at home". Good breakfast again tasteful and well presented. Room clean and quite spacious. We are returning in December.
