The rockstone... The legend of Southampton. Biggest burgers you could imagine, they barely fit in your mouth. The quality is very high, all burgers taste fresh and nice and the chips are always hot and fresh too. Nice experience for an occasional unusual dinner out...More

This is not the place to eat a meal with friends if there is a live band on a Saturday night. The restaurant (? Pub) was incredibly busy, stressed staff trying to gather far too many orders, table reservations too tightly timed, causing chaos. Everything...More

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

There are baby changing facilities in both gents and ladies toilets. As a two hundred year old pub it is very small and very very busy, with lots of steps and obstacles, I wouldn't recommend any running around as you... More
