Cuisine: Irish, Public House
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30

The newest kid on Colombo Street, A Rolling Stone has caused quite a stir amongst drinkers and diners alike. Despite being open just a few months, it has already built up a trusty crew of regulars, who in true Irish style, the barman knows by not just their favourite drinks, but their names as well.

The modern interior is warm and welcoming. Expect a cosy but contemporary space that lends itself as well to a lazy brunch (it has to be the full Irish!), as it does to a coffee break with a slice of home-made apple pie. Hearty dinners include the likes of bangers & mash, Guinness pie and a homely roast of the day, as well as a delicious fish pie and A Rolling Stone’s signature burger.

If you fancy something stronger, you’re in luck. Bulmers cider is on tap and when it comes to Guinness, the staff know that good things come to those who wait. Each pint is settled long enough to guarantee a velvety consistency with a beautiful creamy head.

It just wouldn’t feel right without music. Expect authentic touches such as the radio tuned into Irish stations, a fortnightly traditional music session, and at weekends, a roster of live musicians.

The hostess was lovely. The food was okay but I have had better. Nice atmosphere. Partner was a little thrown by the black burger bun. Loved the curry chips though

We really enjoyed our meal on Saturday night. For us it was great comfort food and we wished we could have finished the generous portions.

We had a lovely evening. Good food and really friendly staff. The place is a hidden gem and has a great atmosphere. It was very quiet when we went - more people should go! The evening was rounded off by the arrival of musicians who then sat round and played great Irish music. Apparently this is a regular thing on Wednesdays at 8pm. We'll definitely go back.

This was our first time and we are sure to go again. The service was excellent and the drinks were reasonably priced. I had the pork sausages and mash which came with onions and peas, and had no complaints but gourmet sausages would have elevated this to excellent rather than a VG. My wife had the fish and chips. This was a generous portion, with a large serving of Akaroa cod, in a good crispy batter, plenty of well cooked chips and a serving of peas. This would be the ideal place for a good night out when there was Irish entertainment available, with a good selection of bar food as well as substantial meals. The woman serving us was very pleasant and her service was impeccable.

Great atmosphere and ambience. Service was great. Only one gripe and that was the ridiculous LOUD banging music coming from the gym next door. Waitress said it would stop at 6pm but after a 5 minute pause the banging started again. The pub had to compete playing it's own music which made it a joke.
Please stop the gym banging on

The staff at a rolling stone feel like your talking to family ...
Walked in & they had an event of southern dancers on at the back of the restaurant- no worries added a bit of excitement!
Staff so lovely, lots of laughs and smiles...
Food = great, a big portion too. So come hungry ...
They were willing to alter the menu too - so that was even better especially when your gluten free !!!

Loved this restaurant so much, stunning simple food with great flavours and really large servings. One of the best mixed grill breakfasts we've ever had. The fish pie was also really tasty and full of flavour. A real Irish/uk influence was the hot chips with curry sauce poured over - delicious. The service and atmosphere was 10 out of 10 with a really homely and welcoming vibe. Without a doubt we will be returning to A Rolling Stone. Thanks so much.

Well, I asked for potatoes, and they gave me a big fat juicy slab of Angus! Just as well they knew what i really wanted :) The sauces are amazingly tasty, the meat tender, and the veges juicy. Great meal at reasonable pricing, friendly staff and satisfying ales. We'll be back, to be sure :)

Went to The Rolling Stone for Sunday lunch with no expectations and we were greatly surprised! We were greeted by a friendly girl who had our table ready and made us a coffee each while we read the menu. It's hearty Irish pub grub so don't expect fine dining or small portions. The Fish and Chips come with peas and the beer batter was dark, crunchy superbly cooked and flavoursome. I personally think Hoki is a great F&C fish for a cheap and cheerful meal. The Guinnes pie comes in a ceramic dish with a large piece of perfectly cooked light and flakey pastry on top. The filling was more rich and hearty stew than pie filling. Accompanied by a heap of mashed potato and what looked to be fresh cooked carrots and leeks it was judged to be 'a good home cooked meal'. We both enjoyed a half of Guinness with our meals just to make it more authentic. There was only one other table of customers so we felt a bit lonely in such a big area but it gave us time to look at all the Irish paraphenalia around the bar. Would be good for a family or large group weekend lunch.
