The Barclays look forward to welcoming you at the Rock Inn, Waterrow.

The Good Pub Guide 2017 has for the second year running awarded us a Star for Outstanding Food and we are delighted to announce that The Rock Inn is featured in The Good Food Guide 2017.

Ruth heads up the front of house team and oversees a well-stocked bar and cellar with finely kept real ales from two local breweries Quantock and Otter on tap, as well as Cornish and Continental lagers and a range of single Malt whiskies and gins.

London born Daren heads up the kitchen. He has cooked for The Goodwood Estate for 11 years and in the West Country at top hotels - the Royal Crescent in Bath, The Castle Hotel in Taunton and Calcot Manor near Tetbury. We offer traditional pub food alongside more contemporary dishes such as Camembert Fondant with pickled beetroot and Short Ribs of Beef slow braised in black garlic juices served with smoked cheddar mash and kale. Every Sunday, we have a Roast of the day as well as our A la carte menu and Specials.

At the Rock Inn, our menu changes regularly according to what is available during the seasons, and it is very important to us that we use local suppliers and farmers. Our meat comes from Stillmans butchers in Taunton and Beech Ridge Farm, Hockworthy.

We offer cosy and well-equipped bedrooms, each with their own private bath or shower facilities, so having wined and dined well, just climb the stairs to a peaceful sleep.

Well behaved dogs are very welcome to stay with us and to dine with us, but only on a lead in our Dining Room and the bar area, and communal areas.
