We pre-booked a 22 person table for a post wedding Sunday lunch and everything was fabulous! From the reservation to the pre-ordering to the setting to the food to the service to friendly staff to payment. The food was amazing and we'll definitely it be back again - hopefully to enjoy the lovely garden and without the additional 20 people!... More

We had a four poster room overlooking the gardens and it was lovely. Breakfast was tasty and served in a light and airy room. If you are not careful this is the room where you evening meal may be served - it lacks the atmosphere of the candle lit main dining area in the main bar. We enjoyed our food... More

Warm summers day, thankfully we had a table by an open window (which I had requested when booking). Good fresh bread though strange that they only served 3 curls of butter for a tabel of four - they did bring another 'curl' when asked. Interesting starters which can be served as a larger portion for a main course. There are... More

We did not stay at The Rock Inn but had dinner there twice. Everything was just amazing, prices were absolutely reasonable. One evening we did go for the three course menu, every single dish was great. The restaurant is beautiful, very old and tastefully furnished. The staff is very polite, friendly and helpful. An amazing restaurant I would definitely recommend.

We had another wonderful meal tonight, this time with our daughter to celebrate her birthday. The service and food were excellent and she was very impressed with the whole ambiance of the restaurant. We are already anticipating our next visit.

Thoroughly recommend - excellent meal. I had a rib eye steak and my friends had lamb and the chefs special gnocchi. All of us agreed it was one of the best meals of our week stay in Dartmoor. The chef came and chatted to us after our meal and it was a real pleasure to meet him and chat through... More

My wife and I chose to stay at The Rock Inn based on previous trip advisor ratings. It didn't let us down, with a warm reception we were shown our uniquely named room, we stayed in 'Jack Horner' a lovely sized room with king size bed (extremely comfortable), beams across the ceiling and tasteful local artwork adorning the walls. We... More

The pub itself is very old fashioned but quaint. The food was very nice and tasy although most of us were still hungry after finishing (including duck & risotto) although the rib eye steak is recommended.

We stayed and dined here for 2 nights. The pub is beautifully located down a quiet lane - however it is necessary to negotiate some very narrow lanes to find it. The effort is definitely worthwhile though. On first entering the pub it does give off an old fashioned vibe. However, the bed rooms are fully modernised and spacious -... More

Tucked down a side lane a little way along from Haytor is this quaint hotel. We had booked just for lunch, but a stay here would definitely be interesting. The staff were excellent and the food really delicious. We had used a Wowcher voucher which had saved us money - but we spent as much again just to have drinks,... More
