We upgraded to a four post bed bedroom,...

After having a drink we were shown to our table, we were sat...

Decided to take the wife out for a meal, could not decide where to go as a few choices locally. Chose The Rock Inn as i know it has a good reputation. Well i wasn't disappointed, the service was second to none, and the food was sublime.

Booked as a last minute surprise for my husband. We upgraded to a four poster bed. Room was lovely appropriately named 'Lovely Cottage'. The whole stay was wonderful from start to finish from a friendly welcome, excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Super location, just a few minutes walk to Haytor, which is a granite tor on the eastern edge of Dartmoor, providing great views of the South Devon Coast and easy walks across the moors. The food, rooms and service are all excellent.

Spent a night here to celebrate my birthday. Food was delicious with excellent service and elegant surroundings. The staff did everything they could to accomodate our wishes. We stayed in Lovely Cottage. Not a cottage but one of their superior rooms all named after grand national winners. It was however super! Clean, comfortable and spacious with a lovely four poster...

First class! We hadn't booked and walked in on the off chance. Luckily there was a table for two spare. Local beer was very good as was my partners Rose. Roast beef/whole plaice were both superb as were the deserts. The service was very good and the staff were all so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Really look forward...
