Lovely room and friendly staff
Lovely friendly place, room exactly as described. Great spot for exploring Devon/Somerset from. It would be nice if breakfast was included in the room rate, not the best value for money.

A great little inn
Another relaxing stay. A warm welcome at the Rock Inn. The bedrooms are very comfortable/clean with the nice touch of real milk (no little jiggers), real coffee and home-made cakes to welcome you. Dinner was, as always, very enjoyable. My duck was expertly cooked & rested to it melted in my mouth. My wife's omlette Arnold Bennett was very "fluffy" with lots of vhunks of smoked haddock. The stciky toffee pudding had lots of sauce & cream - lovely!! The Rock has a wide range of local ales & selection of gins. The Otter Ale was very clear and went down well!! Breakfast had lots of local produce and home made jam & marmalade accompanied with very good coffee and "proper" orange juice. We will be returning soon.

Rocking Inn at the Rock Inn
At first appeared that I had made a mistake. Outside seemed little tired, but once inside very pleasant. Room was excellent from wide screen TV to good wi-fi all the 21st century desires. On site restaurant and bar top notch, very wide local produces available on varied menu, prices low for the food and service. Full English breakfast also with local sourced produces.
