Best burgers in Hampshire,. hands down. A regular stomp for me, Great pub,. with a really good selection of food, coupled with a solid (and rotating) selection of beers. If you are feeling adventurous, have a go at the 'Monty Burns' burger,. I LOVE hot food,. and depending on the strength of the Chilli's they get that month, this thing... More

Visited for their 5th birthday beer festival. A fantastic selection of cask beers, this was in addition to their usual full range of beers. Getting a good name for their food as well as drinks and when you see the meals coming out of the kitchen you can see why. Don't go there to eat if looking for small portions,... More

A huge range of drinks on offer and an amazing variety of burgers. Absolutely huge portions so don't eat all day if you are planning to come here for dinner. The sweet potato fries upgrade is a must. They are superb. We went for dinner last night with our daughter who lives in Southampton. She has been before and recommended... More

Went for a meal here with my son, who is at Southampton University, and my cousin Toby, who amazingly is a 79 year old pilot and still working. We all had burgers and beer. There is a good range of both. The beers are well kept and the burgers are enormous (man vs food proportions) my son finished his (and... More

This place is the nearest decent pub to the centre of town. Good atmosphere. All ages. It has life and character and the range of beers is impressive.

I have eaten at the Rockstone a couple of times since moving to Southampton in September. Every time we have visited we have had excellent food with huge portion sizes (definitely good value for money) both my housemate and I are vegetarians and the vegan burgers are delicious! Always pleasant service and a nice atmosphere to have a drink and... More

My recent visit was one of many and I am never disappointed. I can not think of another establishment that offers a better range of burgers. My latest choice was the Heart Attack Hotel II. Well cooked and sensational flavours. I would have finished the sweet potato fries as well if I hadn't shared some meaty starters before the burger.... More

Good selection of burgers, pricey but you certainly get a lot of burger for your money! Some great ales too. Book ahead at busy periods. Then go full your boots!

Visited for lunch on a quiet Tuesday with my partner. The staff member was very polite and welcoming. A huge selection of ales available so I'd recommend getting the tasting board. My partner had the Ranch burger which he thoroughly enjoyed; very large and cooked as he liked. I had the Heart Attack Hotel II with chicken - the chicken... More
