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.

Reviews

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.

We enjoyed very good quality, no-nonsense food served by a friendly and welcoming member of staff. We would definitely go to A Rolling Stone again and pay full price.

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.

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.
