Great Old Pub gets very busy and the car park can be a nightmare caused by those not using Pub but shopping nearby, menu is varied and would cater for most Sandwiches are extremely well filled and good value, staff attentive, nice and clean frequented by a lot of regulars so says it all really

Just had a meal with friends, the curry was burnt on the outside of chicken and dry. Another person in the group had ham, egg and chips, the ham was grey and the chips overcooked. Very Dissatisfied. I could cook a meal better myself. I wouldn't return.

We headed up to Dartmoor from the Newton Abbot area to check out the newly opened Forest Inn at Hexworthy - which was closed. So that was the only excuse I needed to head onwards through Princetown and down to the Rock, which is one my favourite pubs on the moor. I've been here maybe 4 or 5 times over... More

This is a great pub with 3 bars - saloon bar for food and drink, farmers bar more for locals/dogs/etc and games bar with pool table/darts/juke box. Beer is slightly expensive but the food is good and the pub is always warm and friendly

Good pub grub served quickly and with a smile. I would recommend this for a good meal and local beer. Try Jail Ale brewed at Princetown

I've known The Rock all my life (55 years) and felt pretty disappointed on my 3 visits there this week. Food mediocre, service mediocre and when our meal was literally being ruined by the hoards of screaming children running wild on Friday night, we were told to have a word with the parents ourselves as the staff weren't prepared to...

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!
