The website suggests an idyllic location and venue. It is. We stayed in a superior room and paid £90 for the privilege. It was a lovely room. And the meal was beautiful, we both enjoyed it. However, our welcome was marred by the hostile signs, 'muddy boots off', 'don't open the door to strangers' how do you know? Then I...

FANTASTIC.......a great evening both in terms of atmosphere, service and food. A place myself and all the family (16 of us) would definitely go back to. All 16 meals were superb - if you are staying in the area and looking for something to eat you would be daft to miss this place....a very big must visit.

I stayed there with three children in November 2016. The staff were exceptional and could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. I did not eat there except for breakfast however that was very nice.

We were a group of 8 adults. The accommodation was very comfortable and each room has its own individuality. Exceptionally clean with all the facilities you would need. Darren and Ruth are fantastic hosts along with a team of outstanding staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was delivered with a friendly smile and a great sense of...

Lovely place full of character and picturesque setting in Waterrow. The food, service and hospitality was amazing. A fantastic venue for a special birthday, must visit the snug to retreat for a warming drink by the log burner. Thanks for a lovely afternoon

I was lucky enough to stay to stay at the Rock Inn last week, with a colleague . What a treat it was! Daren and Gary introduced me to the 'best gin in the World ' called Mahon - I think it is! Look out Martin Miller! Ruth , Daren's partner was front of house backed up by two extremely...

My husband and I have visited the Rock Inn numerous times over the last 25 years. It has changed hands fairly often. The current owners have kept the cosy bar feel (don't change it!) but substituted the Pool room for a residents Snug - it was snug, but a bit isolated from the main bar atmosphere on a quiet Tuesday...

Stayed at the Rock Inn some time ago and must say that it could be really good. The room was lovely and very comfortable. Food was excellent if not a little expensive. Must say that the soup was the best I have ever tasted. The Landlady sadly is extremely unfriendly and lacks the social skills required to run this type...
