With friendly staff, a bountiful selection of spirits and thoughtfully selected craft beers The Rockstone is the best pub in town for a unique dining experience. Their burgers are a must have, but don't feel left out if you're not a meat lover as they also do a wide range of vegan and gluten free dishes, with specials changing weekly... More

Great pub, wide ranging drinks with lots of special events. Food is a bit too much based on "biggest burger" or "hottest chilli" for my taste and the place is often too full unless you like eating on a tiny table with a flatulent real ale laden backside poised at head height while you do so. Maybe stick to the... More

Went here with my boyfriend recently after hearing amazing things about it. We both went for a burger, it cost over £30 for both the burgers, which seemed quite excessive. They were enormous, massive plates of food which we couldn't work our way through. Personally I'd rather pay a fair price and have a regular sized portion.

I would say the best burgers in Southampton, but honestly The Rockstone's burgers are the best I've ever eaten out! Great choice on the menu, you can taste the quality and flavour of the meat, so many veggie/vegan options and the staff have always been friendly and helpful! I would highly recommend visiting!

Place was busy as there was a Saints match on, good friendly atmosphere and a huge selection of beers which were a bit confusingly priced - I ordered 2 pints of a sour ale (which was lovely) that said £4.40 on the menu - turns out this was for 2/3 (a pint i'm assuming) - not a huge issue -...

If you want a quiet family meal then forget it, the atmosphere is buzzing! The staff are lovely and really helpful. Also if you don't want a large meal don't come here, the portion sizes are massive. We all had different meals and we were blown away by them, mine was one of the nicest burgers that I have had... More

Visited with my wife for dinner and grabbed one of the tables that wasn't reserved. We ordered burgers as you'd expect and the staff were friendly enough. The Korean burger was ok, although didn't have much Korean flavour to it and the pork was quite tough. My wife enjoyed her ranch burger. The seasoning on the fries was nice, but... More

I have only been twice the Rockstone but each time I had fantastic and original veggie/vegan burgers or dishes. In my view, the staff working there, are really making this a incredible welcoming and unique place. They have a huge variety of beers, spirits and ciders. The chap behind the counter let me taste the cider and nibbles before I... More

Extremely generous portions and although I enjoyed the meal, I felt that my burger was seasoned with too much pepper, which meant that I couldn't finish it. The bacon dusted fries were very tasty and well worth the 50p upgrade. Unfortunately the table service was slow and the waitress never came back to check on our meals or to see... More
