Was staying at the Moorland Garden Hotel but we prefer to eat in a cosy pub with good ale and home cooked food, the Rock did not disappoint. Overall good the only comment I would make is that the Jail Ale Pie pasty was a little soft instead of as I would expected crisp indicating the use of a microwave... More

Located roughly halfway between Plymouth and Tavistock this is a good evening stop off point if you are looking for simple pub food and a wide selection of ales. Four stars only for the regular food menu, but if you hit it at the right time then you may just find that something extra on the specials board. This pub... More

After seeing the Rock Inn packed, each time I cycle past we decided to try it today. Glad we did, prompt friendly service and our 6 yo was given a colouring set to keep him occupied. Steak & Ale pie, full of steak, thick gravy and crusty pastry - recommended!! Chicken Roast for the wife, she enjoyed it and the... More

My first meal at The Rock for many years was very disappointing this evening. I chose barbecue spare ribs. Portion size was excellent and everything else - chips, salad coleslaw was very nice but the ribs themselves were tough, fatty and had little meat. My friend (who had a lovely chicken curry) could see I was struggling to get what... More

Treated us great. They are geared up for cyclists. A good stop. They almost forgot the coffees, it when reminded, kindly brought out some complementary chocolates and offered for them to be on the house. Great customer service.

Not a regular of this pub but we like to pop in when around Dartmoor. The rock offers friendly service and we always try the bar snack menu which has some tasty homemade burgers. A nice couple of hours in the pool room.

Friendly staff, lovely food with good portions, and didn't wait long, we rang ahead and booked a table although we did come in and wonder around looking for our name not sure where we should have gone but it wasn't a problem, kids table with paper activities and pens/crayons which is always appreciated! Also thought the children's menu was good... More

This popular pub has been owned by the same family since the 1880.s.We still offer a great range of local, high quality ales, Westcountry ciders and a varied wine list. Our Chef uses really local produce for her very tasty menu, come and try some of our pies, curries, Sunday roasts or just a Cream Tea. We look forward to seeing you soon!
