We visited The Rock Inn for lunch as a couple. The bar area is cozy and welcoming, the dining room is tastefully decorated, light, airy and very pleasant. The snug (we didn't use it because we were in for lunch) looks just the place to settle in for the evening and enjoy a few drinks. As nice as the location... More

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... More

My wife and I enjoyed a really excellent evening and dinner at the Rock Inn. There was an immediate and friendly greeting from the person behind the bar, and then from Ruth. It was a busy evening, but pre dinner drinks were promptly served and we were shown to a table in the dining room. The menu had a varied... More

We have now eaten here half a dozen times. The standard of food is high. French cuisine, for example duck breast, ox cheek, lots of fish dishes and wonderful local beef. I would not hesitate to reccommend it!

Walked from the local campsite to this Inn and didn't know what to expect. All was fine, I was met with a warm welcome and a very nice pint of Otter. Had an excellent meal, not always the case for a vegetarian. Highly recommended for the weary traveller.
