imageA Country Pub in the Centre of Town

The Rockstone is not your typical city pub.
Max Greenwood has created a cosy paradise right in the centre of Southampton, to transport you from the hustle and bustle of the city to a vibrant pub full of conversation, hearty food, fine local ales and premium spirits.



Welcome to

The Rockstone

We have plenty of seating, two gardens and a beautiful red brick fireplace,
so you can eat and relax in a comfortable atmosphere.

The Rockstone is a community pub that specialises in locally sourced food and high quality beverages, with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome. We believe an important part of being a cornerstone of the local community is supporting that community as a business, and as such are delighted to support local charities, breweries and food suppliers through regular events and stocking local produce.

We are proud to have a great reputation for our food, with a constantly evolving menu of home-cooked food and locally sourced ingredients where possible. The comprehensive choice of burgers is certainly one of the most popular parts of the menu, all the burgers are 12-14oz and handmade from prime steak mince, however if you wish your burger can feature a chicken breast or a vegetable burger instead. Befitting a pub in a coastal city, fresh fish specials are regularly on offer, or alternatively you may want to test your manliness with one of our delicious and sizeable steaks. There is plenty to choose from including many vegetarian dishes and ever changing specials board, so you won’t be left wanting.

The extensive drinks list contains 220 different premium spirits, a fine selection of hand pumped ales and a large wine list. With all this on offer our friendly and knowledgeable staff are always on hand to ensure that you have a great experience and guide you through the myriad of products if the mood takes you to try something new.

Our two gardens, offer sun, shade and refreshment all week, and even more so during our special events with the help of our huge BBQ, outdoor bar and the recent addition of a wood-fired pizza oven. We have hosted many events so far such as Ale & Cider Festivals, Rum Tasting Weekends, a Beach Party, Live Music fund-raisers, Rocktoberfest, German Christmas Markets and many more.

Twin flames light either side of the doorway after dark, the pub’s crest above reading in Latin “Be Excellent To One Another”, a sentiment that epitomises the whole ethos behind The Rockstone. Parked a little way up the road is the official pub mascot, Max’s very own 1971, 5.7 litre V8 Oldsmobile Delta Highway Patrol Car from Memphis Tennessee. Nicknamed “Jeff Jeriff The Pub Sheriff” he keeps a watchful eye over the community, letting everyone know The Rockstone is there “to protect and to serve beer”.
