This pub has everything from great food to a massive variety of alcohol. The staff are so welcoming and the steaks are awesome.

I know the Rockstone has a great reputation and I have always rated it. However, the food has notably dropped in variety and quality!! We ordered off the 'street food' section of the menu with some fries. This was partly because the burgers were disappointing last time. The street food was just really greasy and tasteless. The food is just... More

If you want big burgers and big portions then this is the place for you..they also have a wide range of rum too so if that is your thing as well you will be in your element. I have seen on their Facebook that there is a now a 20oz burger so I'm going to have to try that soon... More

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

Hi Bear004, Many thanks for your review, and apologies for the mix-up. You should not have been charged for the jalapeno replacement. Next time you are in, hit me up and I'll set you right (financially - I won't just give you a handful of jalapenos). The seasoning we use for our burgers is quite dark, so even when they... 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
