It has been quite a while since calling here, hence surprised at name change! This is definitely NOT a wine bar (expect a much broader list), and the decor was fresh but dated already. The artwork very amateurish) I kept wanting to rate it out...More

We chose this restaurant on the basis of a local recommendation and were quite pleased. The emphasis here is meat -- lamb, beef, and venison. But there are a couple of chicken and fish dishes on the menu as well.

A group of us had a great night in a booth tonight. Lovely service, shared plates, aranchini and southern chicken were the favourites ☺ We'll be back!

Here at The Rock Rolleston, we serve amazing food... not just pub grub !Our chefs cook all meals in house.. from pates and terrines to our desserts. We don't buy in pre-made food.We're family owned and managed and can guarantee friendly but professional service .Our wine list features excellent local wines and our food not only delights the eye but the taste buds too and you won't leave hungry as our portions are generous.Dine outdoors in our relaxed courtyard garden or inside in our attractive restaurant.The VIP table, seating 12 and set in a separate area of the dining room, is great for smaller celebrations and the private function room catering for up to 50 guests, is great for a bigger party and can also be set up for a small conference.
