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

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 Cotleigh and Exmoor on tap as well as Cornish and Continental lagers and a range of single Malt whiskies and gins.

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 Pigs Cheeks braised in cider with black pudding.

The Rock Inn is easy to get to: Waterrow is half way between Wiveliscombe and Bampton on the B3227, we are about 12 miles south west of Taunton.

For those who don’t want a long drive home after a good bottle of wine with their dinner, or for holiday makers in mid-Devon or travellers to other parts, we have eight comfortable, well furnished and characterful rooms here at the Rock Inn, each with its own private bath or shower facilities. We are on the southern fringe of the Exmoor National Park, one of the most beautiful areas of heather moorland.

We are half an hour’s drive from the sea and close to the ever popular walkers’ paradise of the Quantock Hills. Here at Waterrow we are also sitting among the less familiar Brendon Hills.
