Lovely place full of character and picturesque setting in Waterrow. The food, service and hospitality was amazing. A fantastic venue for a special birthday, must visit the snug to retreat for a warming drink by the log burner. Thanks for a lovely afternoon

Had a quick drink on a saturday and fell in love so asked if any availability for sunday lunch.....wow!!!!! The hospitality was outstanding....especially as celebrating my mums 60th......could not fault a single thing....only criticism would be childrens meals were way too small for children aged 7,8 & 9....but lovely, well presented food....beautiful flavours and the roast pork was amazing!!!!

My husband and I have visited the Rock Inn numerous times over the last 25 years. It has changed hands fairly often. The current owners have kept the cosy bar feel (don't change it!) but substituted the Pool room for a residents Snug - it was snug, but a bit isolated from the main bar atmosphere on a quiet Tuesday...

Stayed at the Rock Inn some time ago and must say that it could be really good. The room was lovely and very comfortable. Food was excellent if not a little expensive. Must say that the soup was the best I have ever tasted. The Landlady sadly is extremely unfriendly and lacks the social skills required to run this type...

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...

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....

My Friend had bangers and mash with Instant gravy. My pudding was a pavlova and hard as a rock. I did try to cut in to it but it flew on the the floor. The owner just laughed. I complained and was told that's how it's meant to be????. Rude owners. In my mind ppl like this should not run...

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...
