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.

We were all greeted, with a table waiting, recommended wine choices and low alchohol beers shown and we were surprised at the choices. We 4 all had a delicious meal, Angus steak, Guiness pie, Fish pie and Shepherd's pie, each one either had the choice of Veges, Chips or salad and we all tried each others. Came out piping hot and well presented, with a generous serving, filled our bellies well. Very family friendly staff, with a jazz band live playing, we enjoyed our evening and came away contented and with a buzz.

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.

Service is great, the staffs are very friendly and helpful. We had a steak and it was not that tasty as we expected it to be. The ambiance is fine even though it is a bar, it has a small section for kids with toys which is great for families.

On the MARVELLOUS scale from 1 to 10, this is a solid 10.
The manager lady was friendly and she knew her menu and bar selection of by memory.
And on Wednesdays at 8 o’clock they have a Irish music session with any Joe blog that knows Irish music and can play instrument can play together it was quite a nice touch.
Every thing on the menu screamed out eat me, and everything on the menu is under 30 bucks.

Oh my gosh , what a fabulous night. The atmosphere was awesome, the decor eclectic, but the hidden gem was the entertainment. There were four in our party and two had fish and chips and two had burger and chips along with some retro drinks and standard drinks. We finished our meals too full for dessert but then noticed people bringing in musical equipment. Unbeknown to us it was open mic night so we then grabbed more drinks and moved towards the stage where we heard some brilliant music. Arrived at 5.30pm for our first table and left about 10pm

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.

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
