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.

This place was great.warm and cosy on a cold night.the staff were friendly and attentive.the atmosphere was typical Irish pub.interesting layout.when you first enter the front area is restaurant then back further was a pool table and area to stand and chat .back further again was a dance area with a band.nice and casual.they have quiz nights on mondays as well.
We loved the food .I had pork roast and my friends had burgers.all served beautifully.big portions and tasted great.and of course Guiness was our main drink.
Would definately go again..easy to find a park as well and easy to find on Colombo Street chch.

The food was superb and Service was great.
We went three course and every dish was superb! Scallops entree so cute and delicious. Mains were Akaroa smoked salmon and venison medallions.
No rush therefore finished with fine desserts of apple/rhubarb tart and Baileys/butterscotch cheesecake.
Highly recommend this great restaurant in lovely surroundings

Nothing to fancy, just good old fashion pub grub, the roast are very tasty, steak cooked how it should be, and the fish n chips are nice and fresh as you would expect, staff are nice and friendly and up for a chat, overall great place to dine, see you next time!

Wonderful evening at this Irish pub which is owned by a lovely couple (he is Irish & she a Kiwi). Fantastic service and nothing was too much trouble, they even brought lego out to entertain our kids! Just like a pub in Ireland the atmosphere is relaxed and you feel truly welcome. The food was fabulous! Roast was beef and it was delicious, fish and chips were great with fresh fish and the best chips ever. Guinness pie is gorgeous and just like in Ireland. Great selection of drinks too. I noticed that they also have plenty of things on; live music, quiz nights, traditional Irish sessions etc. Give this place a try! You’ll have a lovely evening.

We had a great time having a lunch date on Valentine’s Day. The roast beef was fantastic! My husband who is also a good cook, for the first time was overly satisfied with food out from home. Gretchen’s warm greetings and accommodation also made our experience extra ordinary. A highly recommended place and can’t wait for us to come back to A Rolling Stone Restaurant. *_*

Fabulous experience at A Rolling Stone - great service and food. Unexpected bonus was the Wednesday night gathering of musios, with a mix of guitar, banjo, flute and violin played traditional Irish music. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back.

A great little place, well prepared and presented hearty food, loved the black brioche bun with the burger and the steak was perfectly cooked rare, the six year old loved her sausage and chips along with a huge ice cream sundae supplied with extra ‘just in case spoons for Mum and Dad! Service was excellent, made to feel very welcome. We will definitely be back

Great atmosphere, good food, lovely staff and service. The only thing, that was a bit of a shame was the homeless bum sleeping outside .... not that it was A rolling stones fault.
We will go back :) thank you

Loved having dinner here. Food was delicious! We got the curry gravy chips to start and then a steak dinner each. I am usually fussy with my steak but it was cooked perfectly. The service is also excellent - our waitress was friendly, attentive and a good laugh! Thank you for an enjoyable night out.
