Excellent”

We booked and paid for a double room for our wedding anniversary but somehow ended up with a twin room which took the edge off the weekend some what! The breakfast was delicious but we got held up in traffic on the way down on Friday and didn't arrive til 8.30pm we had booked a table so we phoned ahead when we knew we were going to be late to advise them of our late arrival then we phoned again at 8pm to advise them we would be there at 8.30pm to be told that it was too late for food as they stopped taking orders at 8.15pm We were very confused and disappointed as we were hungry and it was before 8.15pm!! When we arrived they were still serving hot food to other tables up until 8.45pm. They did make us up a cheeseboard, crab sandwich & some chips which was lovely but it was not the steak and chips we were looking forward to!

Hidden Gem”

May be different when busy but it was everything a country pub in the middle of nowhere should be. Only stayed one night, shame it wasn't longer. We rarely return anywhere as we like to experience new things but this might be an exception.

Remote and great to get away from it all”

This Inn was set in a remote valley in Exmoor yet only 6 miles from the coast. It was very relaxed and welcoming. The room was homely, comfortable with all we needed for our stay. The food was excellent, very tasty and great value and went well with the local cider. Some good walking routes from the front door. Staff friendly and ensure a pleasant stay

A lovely homely pub, rooms are lovely, excellent food, excellent hosts, great friendly atmosphere. Based on the side of the river with a lovely walk into Lynmouth, lots of wildlife on the way - weather permitting. Great weekend away. Shall be back - hopefully. Thanks guys

Location, welcome, value.

Our second visit to the Rockford Inn, and hopefully not our last. We were made very welcome by all the staff. Sarah and Katherine are doing an amazing job. Nothing is too much trouble. Lovely, quiet, clean, tranquil place. Great pub, good food, lovely ales. NO phone reception is a BONUS ! Thank you for everything J and R x

Cosy, clean and welcoming B+B - lovelyly en-s stay”

Friendly staff, exceptionally clean and tidy, cosy country atmosphere

The whole experience from booking to check out was fantastic and problem free. The Rockford Inn is a small but special place which offers a traditional country pub atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. There are woodburners through the pub which keeps it very warm and cosy, and the decoration is fantastic throughout. I've never been to a B and B so clean! The food is lovely with lots of choice and also very quick service. Our room was perfect, with a lovely en-suite bathroom with bath and shower. We would definitely stay again!

Could have been better value for money”

Location, standard of accommodation, food

We went away for a weekend break and stayed our first night at The Rockford Inn. I booked it through Agoda which has always been great in the past. It was only after booking that I found that my room price of £74 did not include breakfast. This seemed a little strange for a small pub B&B in the UK. When we arrived at The Rockford Inn we were presented with the option of buying breakfast at an additional cost of £6.75 each. We declined. Disappointing really as the Inn's own website offers the room cheaper and with breakfast included. My own fult to a degree, but I had rung the inn before booking through Agoda and was asked to book online! Marred an otherwise pleasant stay. Be warned.

Food, location

Steak and Ale pie meal was superb and huge, my only criticism being the pie was over-salted. The wood stove was belting out so much heat we practically melted! Our room was poorly sound insulated meaning extraction fans, conversations could be easily heard, but this is not unusual in this type of place in my experience. Breakfast was superb. All in all we enjoyed our stay here and would go again.

The river location, the excellent clean rooms and the lovely food

A lovely relaxing break with good food and choice of local ales served by very friendly and professional staff. The public areas are traditional and in keeping with the age and location while the bedrooms have a "boutique" feel. To sum up, the Rockford inn is perfect!
