I've been to the Rockstone a few times now and would say that their food is done of the best I've tasted. They cater for niche diets fantastically well and serve very good ale and wine. A perfect 5/5.

Lovely little spot. Burgers here are the best and have a larger range of drinks to choose from. Staff is nice and friendly.

Hi DobberBonnett, We are a dog friendly venue. All we ask is that dogs stay on a leash, out of the walkways, and off the furniture. Kind regards, Bolo Hooper General Manager
