My cousin recommended this place as it had a few vegan options - and it did have several vegan burger options. We all had burgers and the meat eaters definitely enjoyed theirs, all the burgers were great and huge! Nobody finished theirs. My only criticism...More

Went here for the rum fest. Ordered a beer was told it's only served in 2/3 shame the price wasn't 2/3 of a pint. Bit steep at £6 did not stay to eat a £15 burger.

There are many burger places in Southampton but none better than The Rockstone. The burgers are very good quality and huge so make sure you have a good appetite.

Having grown up in the country I'm used to long walks followed by a nice trip to a country pub. The Rockstone offers the atmosphere and environment of a pub like this right in the city. Food was excellent, albeit slightly pricey.

With friendly staff, a bountiful selection of spirits and thoughtfully selected craft beers The Rockstone is the best pub in town for a unique dining experience. Their burgers are a must have, but don't feel left out if you're not a meat lover as they...More

Great pub, wide ranging drinks with lots of special events. Food is a bit too much based on "biggest burger" or "hottest chilli" for my taste and the place is often too full unless you like eating on a tiny table with a flatulent real...More

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

Hi mumofone73, We aren't quite sure why TripAdvisor lets others users incorrectly answer questions posed to businesses, so here is a proper answer: We have lots of Gluten Free options on the menu and we offer gluten free... More

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
