Welcome

The Rock Inn is a 450-year-old gastro pub in an area of outstanding natural beauty, that combines laid-back country chic with succulent dining experiences. 

We have eight guest rooms, recently redecorated that are cosy yet chic, and The Rock Inn is ideally placed for shooting groups visiting the area in nearby Devon and Exmoor.  In fact, the Rock Inn at Waterrow has been nominated by the members of Guns on Pegs, Good Shoot Hotel 2017.

The Good Pub Guide 2020 has for the fifth year running awarded us a Star for Outstanding Food.

Located in the picturesque hamlet of Waterrow, halfway between Wiveliscombe and Bampton on the B3227 in the lovely county of Somerset, the Rock Inn is very popular with guests looking to relocate to the West Country and in particular, West Somerset and East Devon.

We offer eight bedrooms and a stylish Dining Room and pub serving delicious traditional pub food alongside more contemporary dishes such as Somerset baked brie fondant with a warm melting centre and pickled beetroot or Honey roasted breast of free range duck with winter vegetables on a creamed parsnip puree, merlot scented sauce and truffle dauphinoise potatoes.

Well behaved dogs are very welcome but only on a lead in our Dining Room and the bar area.

Every Sunday, we have a Roast of the day as well as our A la carte menu and Specials.
