Our second visit to The Rock Inn and enjoyed it as much as the first time. Lovely room, excellent evening meal finished off with a few drinks with other guests around the cozy bar. Service from Ruth and the rest of the team at The Rock Inn during our visit was terrific. Situated in a beautiful little hamlet on the...

Booked 1 night to cover a round trip on the Flying Scotsman. Delays on the m5 made us late, we rang through to apologise and ask for a late check in. Was told last check in @ 22pm. Tried to get to the Rock Inn before going on to Bishops Lydeard station but couldn't get there due to police closures...

We used this pub as a stop over for a driving tour and the landlady Ruth couldn't have been more helpful with our booking and once we were there. We arrived at about 8pm and we booked 7 individual rooms, which were all lovely and decorated to a modern and high standard. We had also booked in for dinner, which...

We purchased a dinner voucher through travelzoo and when we looked the Rock Inn up on the internet it looked so nice we decided to book a room as well. We weren't disappointed, what a beautiful place, we had a warm welcome from Ruth who showed us to our lovely comfortable room. Our meal was superb, the waitress was brilliant,...

Extremely rude & very unhelpful Landlady when trying to book an evening meal in the restaurant when using a Travel Zoo voucher. Food however was really good, but atmosphere leaves a LOT to be desired!!

Ruth B, Owner at The Rock Inn, responded to this review

You should be aware that when purchasing a low cost meal voucher as a taste of what we can do, it is unrealistic to think you will get peak time to dine with us. As a special promotion that we were running through Travelzoo, it had to be run firmly for it to work for our business.

Lovely welcoming staff. Ruth and her team were friendly, efficient and attentive.The room was lovely, clean and stylish with tea, coffee, fresh fruit and homemade shortbread. Top quality bed linen and fluffy towels. The highlight of the stay was the amazing food. Beautiful, perfectly cooked menu, that could rival any top London Restaurant.You won't be disappointed!

First visit to this traditional cosy pub/hotel after buying a travelzoo voucher for a three course dinner for 4. Such a treat to still be able to find an old pub (log burner ablaze on a chilly spring evening), and be thrilled by the choice and high quality of dishes on offer. The chef delivered an amazing short rib of...

I last visited the Rock Inn many years ago. It was nice then but a little faded. So I was impressed with the changes the current owners have made to the interior decor whilst retaining the pubs traditional charms, including the great open fire. The dining room has had an interior make over making it a very pleasant place to...

We arrived at 6pm on a Saturday evening, having booked a room for the night and table in The Rock Inn's restaurant. Ruth and her team were extremely welcoming as we were shown to our room in the attic of the 400 year old building. Our room was absolutely spotless and very tastefully furnished. After a brief rest we went...
