Sunday lunch with friends. Excellent reception from staff and the chef! We sat at the Sung, a private room with sofas and can sit 8-10. Food was excellent, good quality ingredient and cooked well. Homemade ice cream - lots of flavour to choose from. Serving staff is very tentative. Clearly trying to present food in the modern stylish way. Mid-up...

Went for dinner with my husband and were greeted by the very friendly and welcoming staff. We got the table in the cozy corner next to the fire place and were encouraged to rub the rocks next to it and make a wish. My husband had the oysters to start and I had the crab, avocado and salmon to start,...

We were on our way to Devon and stopped at the Rock Inn for Sunday lunch wth some local friends. The welcome from Ruth and Daren was as warm as last time. We mainly had roast beef, although one had the cod which looked delicious, it was cooked to perfection, as was the Sunday roast. The succulent beef was accompanied...

We were sussing it out for a visit with a group of 10 next month when we are staying in the area, and we would have no hesitation in...

This is a very, very nice place indeed. I'm surprised the chef hasn't got a Michelin star yet! The food was outstanding. The room was very clean and pleasant and I would have no problems staying here again or recommending this place to anyone 😊

The Rock doesn't look it's best in winter, but the interior is much lighter and brighter than you'd expect from outside and the roadside location tucked into the hill behind. Decor is pleasant - scrubbed pine tables, Farrow & Ball-shades of paint, and lighting touches, plus original features, beams, log fire etc. We loved the menu, which is a foodie's...

It's not cheap, but it does offer value for money. The food was top quality, with unusual combinations of ingredients that we both thoroughly enjoyed. There are also some standards on the menu too, to keep everyone happy. The wine list was also not cheap but we enjoyed a good pinotage for around £20 so we were pleased with that....

Booked a table for three for Saturday evening to celebrate my husband's birthday. Chose The Rock Inn because we know it well and have never been disappointed with the fabulous food. Had an immediate warm welcome and impeccable service throughout by all staff. Lovely table close enough to the roaring fire to feel the benefit! Great choice of food including...
