The Rockstone has become something of a Southampton institution since its conversion from the old (and generally empty) Bevois Castle. Its reputation is well deserved. Great range of beers, big supporter of local and small breweries, decent wine list, extensive (and humorous!) 'big food' menu focusing on burgers but with other choices too. Possibly the best burgers in Southampton! Friendly... More

A great place for a huge burger washed down with plentiful alcoholic beverages. The staff are amazingly friendly and nothing to much trouble.

Me and my boyfriend have been here several times and every visit we leave extremely happy. We were very lucky to get a table on this occasion as it was busy night and we left booking so late (aka my boyfriend mucked up the booking). The burgers are insane and they are also so inventive which is something I love... More

Left a review regarding food a while ago but promised I'd add another as soon as I could! I have a few friends who are really knowledgeable about the booming craft ale scene and it's clear that the rockstone do a lot of good stuff collaborating with local brewers. So lucky to have places like this, brewdog, unity, bookshop alehouse... More

Very nice pub only eaten the scratchings so far and they were amazing, other food looks delicious and very large portions, nice atmosphere especially outside in the summer, the drinks are a little pricey but worth it.

Either I'm getting middle aged or the bouncers at the Rockstone are out of order. Whichever it is, my friends and I felt extremely disappointed with the service we experienced last Saturday evening. Around a quarter past midnight we ordered a round of drinks only to be hassled minutes later, by moderately aggressive bouncers, to 'drink up and head home'.... More

Not located in the most up-market part of town, limited parking facilities and a very 'alternative' clientele all probably contribute to the little known reputation. Friendly staff serving a great range of drinks; good cider selection and some unusual ales, along with a pretty good food menu. You should not miss the burgers here; some unusual toppings combinations on very... More
