Burgers are amazing no more really needs to be said! Just make sure you are hungry when you visit. Always good service sometimes too busy to walk in though so need to book.

Been here a few times but very sporadically over many years but think I have got enough of a feel for the place to write a (hopefully) helpful review. I'm actually going to leave a 4* review too as I really rate it as a pub and the drinks are top notch but the food IMO could be tweaked. Pros... More

Visited with a group of friends over the festive period. Most people enjoyed their meals, with a few criticisms with the Christmas specials. Some people found the one with Yorkshire puddings difficult to eat, whereas the others found their wasn't enough sauce in the burger (cranberry I think). As the staff are so nice and helpful in this pub I'm... More

Visited the Rockstone prior to Christmas for our big annual get together. Table wasn't quite ready but we weren't keep waiting that long to be seated. As always the beer is good, and it wasn't long before the burgers arrived. I opted for the special festive roast dinner burger, which as great as it sounds on paper I was ever... More

Went to the Rockstone for dinner and was very impressed with their range of burgers. Very extensive vegetarian and vegan burger menu as well as a large variety of meat burgers. Portions are very large so it is a very good value for money, but is on the pricier side of pub food.
