We were a group of two couples away for the weekend at the Rock Inn. The Inn opens at 6pm and from then on the visit was great. The bar is comfortable and welcoming with a decent range of drinks and a good atmosphere. Our bedrooms were both recently redone and were very comfortable, all of us slept very well... More

Back at Waterrow Touring Park for a few days thus means back to The Rock Inn, certainly worthwhile. Excellent meal and pleasant evening on Friday. Returned on Sunday lunchtime with friends for our anniversary treat, amazing food yet again and made to feel very welcome by the owners, excellent service all round. We look forward to being back very soon.... More

I tried Venison for the first time here. It says I visited in Oct 2015 but it was actually Sept 2010. I just wasn't given the option to go back that far. I found this hotel here on Trip Advisor when looking for a character Hotel to stay in and I must say I hit the jackpot. You drive in... More

We happened to come across the Rock Inn and decided to stop for refreshments and a bite to eat. It was early lunch time, and only a couple of other customers around. Appreciating that the beer may not have been pulled that day, I enquired about what pint was best. I have been drinking ale for over 45 years now... More

Disappointing after reading the nice reviews. Booked lunch for one o'clock, arrived at 10 to as told to, to find half the menu and the specials not available. Finding none of my choices available, asked if I could have one of the starters turned into a main, to be told no, it's a starter. My friend had roast duck, which... More

We had a 60th birthday party, 12 of us for sunday lunch. What can i say.... absolutely superb. All had 3 courses, and not one person could fault the food. The variety, presentation, and flavours are off the chart. Service was fantastic. Wine excellent, and after dinner drinks in the lounge were the icing on the cake! Thank you everyone... More
