This was one of the nicest meals I've had in a long time. I eat out a fair amount and am rarely dissatisfied with the food that I find in a variety of different places but The Rock Inn really stood out for me. The building itself is a fascinating eclectic mix of old and new and is genuinely a... More

Dog friendly which we needed, great food, very friendly and accommodating staff, nothing not to like. No problem parking at the back of the hotel. Very quiet and so good nights sleep. In a lovely part of the world.

The 14th of September was my 42nd Wedding anniversary, as a surprise for my wife I booked a table, as soon as we arrived we were greeted warmly and shown to our table, there was a very good feel about the restaurant with the old decoration and candles in a room that looked very intimate ( not bright with modern...

This is a lovely hotel, trying to balance the old with the new and I think they manage this very well. Our room was lovely, not too big but with enough space, sliding door to the bathroom allowing more room. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and it is in a peaceful location so no noise helped with a... More

I've had quite a lot of scotch eggs in my fifty three years, too many probably. However I now can't have anymore, because the duck egg scotch egg I had at The Rock Inn was so perfect, so flawless in every conceivable way that I shall only be disappointed if I try to eat one again.

We found this lovely old pub by chance and arrived just in time for the last orders for lunch. All the staff were efficient and helpful. The food was delicious - we had chicken Caesar salad (made just as it should be with romaine lettuce) followed by a wonderful chocolate tart. We could tell chef had used the best chocolate!... More
